Not Harlechs, but my Marlow wingtips, pennies, and tassels have remained pretty dark, but then again I do use dark brown Cordovan cream on them. The wingtips, which I'm wearing today are about 4.5 years old.
Through resellers like : http://www.seiyajapan.com/Not sure if they have that specific model, but I would inquire with them.I'd like to know too. I've been tracking for the past few months and going prices from what I have seen have been $2,800+.
While C&J and Citishoes are in the general area of town, Carmina's new location in proximity to Alden and Allen Edmonds are shots fired across the bow being only a couple hundred feet from the other two.
I could see why they would say that. It's on one of C&J's more traditional looking lasts. They'd probably think a wingtip on the 348 last might look sleeker and with the times for a 20 something. Honestly I didn't start wearing wingtips until I was in my 30s.
