What's the consensus on the Marlow shell wingtips sizing? I've seen in this thread that some felt it's 1/4 size too big, others 1/2 size too big.   I'm a standard US 9D and I have a pair of size 9D Marlows that are slipping in the heels just slightly enough for me to find them a bit uncomfortable during long walks.   If someone here has a pair in 8.5D and is experiencing the opposite problem, I would be interested in a trade (see my sig below).
For sale is a pair of gently worn Ralph Lauren Marlow wingtip derbies (1, 2) in brown shell cordovan (size 9D), crafted by Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren. This is a beautiful pair of shoes with a timeless design. They've been brushed/buffed after every other wearing and conditioned once with Venetian Shoe Cream. I had Topys installed on the front sole as well.   I would keep them if they weren't just a bit too big. They should fit you well if you take e.g. a 9D in...
Some saphir renovateur or venetian shoe cream, in addition to vigorous brushing, can help with the spots, but don't overdo it
GreenFrog's numbers sound right; however, my friend who's in IBD calculated his hourly wage after his first year (including bonus) and he was making only about $25/hr...
Looks stunning, uncle. My pair unfortunately doesn't fit me as well, I should have sized down a half.   Anyone interested in a pair of 9D RL Marlows? Should be a good fit if you are 9.5D, I also put Topys on them.
Is the 2nd from right, bottom row, a #8 LWB? How long have you had it?
Vass shell baseline is going for about €550 = ~700USD, according to a recent post... very comparable to Aldens.
I love my Aldens, but Vass' shell cordovan shoes can be quite comparable to, if not better than, Aldens. They tend to be more sleek as well. Take a look through the Vass thread.   Vass saddle shell semi-brogue & ravello plain captoe:     Vass antique cognac shell semi-brogue:       Vass whiskey shell punch captoe:  
Does anyone know if there's a walnut shell offering from AE recently?
They should be understanding about this. Looks like AE's QC is still on the decline...
