@szerwo those are stunning!  Looks like the combination of the PTB and RL marlow wingtip.  Also it's really interesting make up (in a good way) with the dainite sole

Those are gorgeous!  I wonder if the 335 last will fit me better than my 325 lasted Marlows.  Just tried them on after a long winter and the toe box feels too tight now.

Thanks guys

 

I was able to try on the 335 right next to the 325 and the 335 was definitely a bit more generous in the toebox, in particular i noticed that I could feel my pinky toe pushing against the side a bit in the 325. Very similar shape but the 335 is slightly more generous. Just my experience, hope it helps.

Well shit. I've been admiring @Cleav's dark brown Westbournes for months, annoyed that they're not a stock model but also comforted by the fact that I've grown to appreciate the 337 over the 348. And now it turns out that they're available in dark brown on the 337. But I do ink that $900 (after tax and shipping) is too much to spend on C&J, even if they are handgrade.

Gorgeous! When i first tried my first nice pair of shoes, boots actually, they were wing tips and I also fell in love. Its such a classic and timeless look. Smart and classy. That brown shell finish is lovely, as well. Almost like a finely stained wood. Great pick up.

Can anyone post pics of their Islay's and how long you've had them? Im curious how they look after years. It seems the grain leather ages really well. Thanks!

I went ahead and ordered the whiskey harvards in 8.5D US, and they shipped yesterday and will actually arrive tomorrow.  So i'll try to give an update with photos and fit later this week :thumbs-up: 

 

Now if only I could find a pair of Gianni boots in size 8D...

Sorry for the background craps since I'm moving very soon...
