Brooks Brothers sells at least one C&J model on the same last as the Marlow (325). This pair:http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.®-Algonquin-Pebble-Grain-Rubber-Soles/465H,default,pd.html?dwvar_465H_Color=BRWN&contentpos=31&cgid=0522You can try that shoe on if your local BB store has it in stock.
I'm 11.5D Barrie and 12D Marlow. I have a high instep and 11.5D Marlow is too tight. In fact, I wear UK11.5E in all C&J lasts that I have tried (224, 236, 240, 324, 325, 337, 341).
Based on my communication with C&J customer service a couple of years ago, you should order a US 8D.
These were sold a long time ago. And, then, they were sold again.
Ralph Lauren tan doughboy boots. Made in England. Size 13. Slightly used. One day to go in auction and shoes are at $50 with free shipping. Boots are probably C&J or AS: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Polo-Ralph-Lauren-Benchmade-in-England-Brown-Lace-Up-Doughboy-Boots-13-/271421427015?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item3f31fa4d47
NIB Crockett & Jones Whitehall beige cap toe. Size 8D. Handgrade on 330 last. BIN price of $360 with $15 shipping, but opening bid of $270: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Crockett-amp-Jones-Whitehall-Beige-Shoe-Size-8-/231181247812?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276
I just checked and it IS updated. Hurry!!!!
I don't mean to be blasphemous but that is pretty close to the RL Marlow shell wingtip (sans thistle):http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1812819&cp=1760781.1898623&ab=ln_men_cs2_shoes&s=D-StorePrice-POLO&pg=1&parentPage=family
Two questions:1. When you say the instep is (was) too tight, I take it that you are referring to LHS on the Van last (and not some other shoe on the Barrie). Am I correct?2. Were the shoes that you were able to stretch made of shell or calf?I have a high instep. A few years ago I tried on a pair of shell LHS in my Barrie size. I walked maybe a total of 15 to 20 yards in them. The length was fine with no heel slippage but I didn't get them because they were very tight...
