The quality would be very good. The Ralph markup would be spectacular. If you're looking for calf, you'd be better off purchasing some longwings from Cheaney / Church's / Alden directly, without the RL markup. However, in a sale the RL could be a very good price indeed.
Just my $0.02.
Thanks for your suggestion - yes I may have access to some good discounts coming up but... I'm unsure about sizing.
Agree with what Hoit said.
I got a pair of the Cheaney RRL Bowery boots on sale for something like $450 last year. They're nice enough for that price but I honestly wouldn't pay much more for them.
Sizing is kind of funky on them too. It's a fairly high volume/wide last but also short.
I went Barrie last size in them. I have plenty of width but length is just barely enough.
The bulbous shape of the last also makes the Barrie look sleek in comparison.
