    I also finally got to try on a pair of Alden's on the Modified last. Absolutely perfect last for me. Sadly, the Brown Chromexel V-Tip I received is going back to Shoe Mart. The stitching job is just brutal to the point that it looks like I am wearing two different style of shoe.

    I did not think I would be buying any more non-shell shoes but after trying the Modifieds I think Moulded Shoe will be getting some of my business.

    I just loled.

    Uncle Mac, I have no idea where you live or your background, but I am imagining an aristocratic Boston Brahmin with a cup of 30 year old Scotch, leaning over and whispering to a young man, "Your shoes could use some mac luv."

    Have a great weekend, Unc, and thank you for your jovial spirit.

    Thanks uncle. I'll attend to the PTBs.

    I don't recall ever seeing unlined PTB in an exotic color.
