    With all due respect, don't you Alden gents think the 'nephew - uncle' thing is kind of creepy?

    To be honest I only see it as a way some have chosen to show respect and in so have not been bothered by it.

    Nope. Mac's a good dude, and a gentleman - not to mention, the Alden king - and personally, I just say it out of respect. Harmless in my view (recognizing my view is merely that).

    Mahogany scotchgrain shell is somewhat rarer than hen's teeth.

    Are there any shops, in particular, that would sell/stock some of the more narrow sizes? I'm more than likely a 10-11 B or C in most Aldens and the options seem to be extremely few and far between, from what I've found.

    Maybe the Shoe Mart. Probably not in stock, but they will list those sizes on their website as sizes they can order.

    Initially, I thought they were really related! Now I find it to be hysterical, with all of the cyber genuflection. I guess the cat is some sort of Alden whisperer! [​IMG]

    It would be a nice acquisition for you and it looks like it could be done at a reasonable price. Good luck with this one.
