Ranc boats in Royal Rockford.
Tempted. Already have some pinchers in that color. Wonder how the fully-lined aspect would affect the half-step down... in a laced boat I might consider TTS.
Edit: The private sale price is $193.37.
I wear an 11D in the Alden LHS and an 11D in the Marlow Wingtip. My Marlow Pennys (edit: 11D) rarely get worn. Feel a bit narrow to me in the toe-box. Length I find them to be the same, but as we talked about with the wings... my foot ain't your foot.
Guess I'm jumping in on this late. I take an 11 in the Barrie and like the CJ 325 last in 10.5UK -- which is what the 11D Marlow is. My Marlow wingtips fit a little shorter in the toe box and slightly less volume overall, but the shape is better aligned with my foot than the Aldens. Not only is fit preference part of the varied interpretations of which size to take, but the actual morphology of the foot. Take two guys with the exact same foot length and width on the...

Recently was in a wedding in which a dark...
Yup. Actually like the Rancourt's better and give them a slight edge on quality. Have four pairs of Rancs now.Count me in on the doubting side that they were made by the same factory, yet they do share some DNA. Now, a pair of Yuketen's I have looks like it is a 100% match with the OSBs I have.
Yeah, they're all over the place. Look at the Darlton/Marlow C&J for RL thread and you'll see lots of discussion about TTS versus minus half.Some boot socks and "elephant tongue pads" (see eBay or Amazon) might be a fix if you love them. BUT FIRST... see if you can't get a bricks and mortar SA to call around and see if a store has them.
