I just ordered a pair of the burgundy shell cordovan cap toe boots from Brooks Brothers at 25% off.  I've never tried any of the C&Js for Brooks Brothers so I hope the sizing works for me.

Let me know how it goes... After Carmina jacked with their US-based pricing on their PTB GMTO, I'm happy to give their competitors money.

Anyone interested in the brown shell wingtip (Marlow) GMTO on the CJ 325 last, please PM me. I will reach out to Lauren next week and start organizing pricing and other details. With the exchange rate it should be very reasonable - sub $600 US vs the $1000 Ralph Lauren wants.

I've reached out to Lauren regarding a GMTO of brown shell Marlows.

 

Spec will be exactly this shoe. Will update when I hear back re: pricing and timeline. Hoping pricing will be in the $500-$600 range which is much cheaper than the $1000 RL now charges, with discounts not really happening anymore.

Or the more likely shade of brown:

Anyone interested in this run, pls reach out. I will likely continue this in the C&J MTO thread.

A new cordovan shoe from C&J! 371 last. Whiskey and dark brown Horween shell.

Lauren has gotten back to me,

 

16 weeks (4 months) to ship

 

For EU members (Including VAT) - £590 

 

For non-EU members (Excluding VAT) - £491.68  / $607 USD

 

Given there is no tax on sub-$800 orders entering the US, this is 40% off retail for Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers brown shell C&J wingtip with no tax. 

 

All further discussion regarding this GMTO will continue in the GMTO thread:

Finally gave in to the dropping British Pound and ordered the cordovan Cardigan 4 from Pediwear. The website said my size was in stock (UK7) so crossing my fingers.

If I want to order a pair of cordos from CJ is there a contact email?

I just got a pair recently. Very nice. What was the total price with shipping if you don't mind me asking?

I have to see what my final credit card charge will be for the exchange rate but conversion at the time of order was around $611 with shipping. I'm not sure if I will get hit with a duty to the US. I was thinking of ordering direct from C&J in the UK or purchasing from SkyValet in the US but this was cheaper (so far).

That's a great price. There won't be any import duty since these are under $800. They raised the allowance in April. I purchased mine about 5 weeks ago and paid $80 more so you it worked out well for you.

Kind of a weird question, but does anyone know a good way to clean the Marlow Shell wingtips in dark brown? Mine are super comfy and awesome, but the left shoe has a bit of a white...not haze.. but spots. They are as if there is a water spot or some dirt/stain but they don't come off with brushing or Saphir Reno. 

 

Im also looking for a good color matching polish, though should I just go for neutral? Thanks!
