    Thanks. Wearing them in waiting for the right foot fit to settle. Did on my other pair of Modified last Aldens. Also interested to see how the scotch grain looks with some wear on it.

    Is Unionmade the only retailer with this makeup? I already sent an email in to them, but if I can pick the size on their site does that mean it is in stock and available? Anyone have experience with them? Dumb question, probably.

    Modified sits between the Trublance and Barrie. It is still down a half size but a bit less wide if a toebox than the Trubalance

    I don't own anything on the Modified but I hear it works well with high arches.

    The real difference in the modified is a significantly narrower waist to the shoe, with much more arch support. It's definitely a different fit from Barrie/TB in that regard. Otherwise, I wear the same size for all three lasts. Good toe room in the Modified. Comfortable.

    I've only had great experiences with them. Give them a call to verify they have it in stock; I believe San Francisco is their flagship location but they have another shop in LA.

    Not exactly the same makeup, but pretty close. ShoeMart also has a Natural CXL plain toe boot on the Trubalance last seen here

    I probably visit or order from Mill/Unionmade once a month and have had nothing but amazing service. Based on my experience if it shows as in stock on the site, it's in stock. Speaking of Unionmade... just opened this:

    I have bought several pairs from them... They're very good, excellent customer service and if you see the size on the site that means they have it in stock (I did have one instance where they showed availability on the site and ended up not having it... They were extremely apologetic over the error).

    Those are some beauties. Thanks for the info on Unionmade. Looks like I'll be placing an order a month for a couple months too!

    Anyone selling a #8 Wingtip boot right now? Either in stock or for pre-order? I need a 7.5D or 8D dependent on last.

    Thanks!
