A pair of nice C&J suede loafers for Polo http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-POLO-RALPH-LAUREN-Brown-Suede-Shoes-Bench-Made-in-England-No-Reserve-/220988325187?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item3373ee3d43#ht_500wt_969 unfortunately too big for me
Try to ask this guy that have various models: http://heavytweed.blogspot.it/2012/01/htj-reports-crockett-jones-last-314.html http://heavytweed.blogspot.it/2012/03/htj-reports-crockett-jones-last-314-ii.html However I think that the difference is of one size and not half.

Sorry, I meant euro yes was at around 250/270$ with the additional code (25% plus 20% if I remember correctly) I bought the Marlow and missed it.

Yes, same style and last as Boston but with reversed strap cut-out.
