I have both the Darlton wing tip and the plain toe blutcher in cordovan shell. The fit is completely different in that the wing tip is a much narrower fitting than the plain toe in the same size. Has anyone verified that both shoes are on the 325 last?
I agree with Mafoofan. My shell shoes may over time develop variations in tone, but new shells should not have such uneven coloration. If you have the opportunity to see other new shell cordovan Bradleys,you could then make a more informed decision.
