Excellent, thank you - that helps a lot! Based on your experience did you regret purchasing the Marlow Wingtips in US8.5D i.e. would you have preferred a US9D fit?

335 fit short for me, I find it shorter than the other c&J lasts.

 

Thanks for taking the time to reply. Could I clarify, is the suggestion here that the 325 is longer than the 335 (despite both being short), and therefore if the 335 fits well in UK8E (and it does) then a US8.5D should work given then slightly longer length?

 

Much appreciated again gents. Based in sunny Sydney, there's only a handful of brick and mortar stores I can purchase from an no one stocks the gorgeous marlow wingtips in cigar shell for me to try on! :)

 

Sincerely,

GS

I last tried on the Marlow 8.5D US a long time ago, so I can't give specifics. I just recall it being a bit too snug for me, similar to how the 8E Skye 2 was too short.

So im thinking about buying a pair of Crockett and Jones shoes in shell cordovan second hand, they are a bit pricy and kind of beat up. What do you guys think, will i be able to fix them up or are they screwed?

IMO well worn shoes are not worth buying second hand. They'll never fit you right

My limit on those would be $125.

Hi guys,

 

Does anyone have a Classic penny loafer? How does the last 314 compared to 348? I heard it is smaller in fit? 

 

Cheers!

Thanks :)  would you recommend I keep to size? I presume snug but not uncomfortable?
