I absolutely love my 5 pairs of Darlton/Marlow Ralph Lauren by Crockett & Jones shoes. I have 2 pairs of the shell cordovan wingtips, 1 pair of plain toe cordovan bluchers, 1 pair of black calf skin plain toe bluchers, and a pair of tan pebble grain wingtips which have the Dynalite sole. I wear each pair throughout the work week, as well as casually and always get complimented on how great they look with my outfits. The tan pebble wingtips are my personal favorite, especially since people always ask where and when I got them from Ralph Lauren, but if I had to pick a pair for anyone to absolutely have it would be the cordovan wingtips...thus the reason why I have 2 pairs.
