Coming in 5,4,3,2,1....

The Alden Modified Last V-Tip in colour 8 Cordovan... Otherwise known as the Alden 54321. Latest addition to my Alden wardrobe...... Now, a saddle shoe.... Cigar cordo saddle on tan suede? Choices choices choices.....


  1. Absolutely beautiful Ethan! Love the look of that stitched toe.

  2. Thanks Papa - the V-Tip and the NST are the most iconic of Alden shapes,, at least in Japan where I see the most of them. Glad to have both and be able to compare. Also my first pair on the Modified last, which I am keen to test the comfort of.
    I noticed a certain friend of yours in the new Free & Easy Real McCoys book... Nice place to land a spread, I must say.. Real McCoys looks like they are back to fine form this season.


  3. Hi Ethan,

    I just tried on a pair of these shoes at my local Ships and wow, they really fit "different." They have a really high arch, it seemed. Is that someone you had to get used to, or was it comfortable right away? I don't think I have "flat feet" but I was a little uncomfortable with just wearing them for a minute. Do you have a similar experience? How do you find them?

    Thanks for the good blogging and photos, as always.
