Just been looking at your collection of shoes and they are gorgeous!

I must once again have had to redress my opinion of Lowndes as your dark brown pain definitely punch above their weight (if only my feet were a bit smaller, 10's can look a bit long on 348)

Got to collect a repair this week, will I be able to resist. Bugger, will check my bank account and they can get me a pair in rather than the Seymour's - shame the Seymours don't have the toe cap.

That's very kind of you to say, thank you.

I agree regarding the Lowndes, lot of shoe for the money nod[1].gif

^^ I've never understood why the Seymour doesn't have a cap toe either.  I've always thought that DM/cap toe SM/plain toe were the classic combinations.

A pair of good quality English brogues is missing from my line up. I would like to go with C&J model as to date have not tried them. I am looking for a wideish fit and I know the Pembroke gets a lot of love here however I dont want a scotch grain. A plan dark tan or mahogany calf in a style similar to the Cheaney Arthur III would be my wish. Any suggestions from the C&J experts out there?

Thanks Webbo

Well, I can wear a UK 7, 7.5 or 8 dependent on the last. These are a UK 8, regular E fitting and are very comfortable on the roomy end of the scale.

That being said we are all different so there is no substitute for trying a pair on, especially your first pair with any particular shoe maker and last. biggrin.gif

It can be an expensive mistake.....

Not to mention fit is subjective to begin with. Definitely try then on if possible.

Classic Marlows in shell cordovan, one of my faves!

Such a great shoe shouldn't the rl sale be coming up soon ?
post #9401 of 12855

When was the last time Marlows were actually included in a sale?  I'd love to kop a PTB in this lifetime.

I got fed up of waiting and bought a gently used pair (which turned out to have some salt stains). They still get more compliments than any of my other C&J's for some reason!

 

edit - I realized that wasnt particularly helpful, lol

I was hoping to make a C&J purchase from this retailer but recently learned they don't ship to the USA (only EU). The retailer is in Uppsala, Sweden, which is, as I understand it, 45 miles or so from Stockholm.

In any event, I am wondering if any Swedish brethren on SF would be willing to proxy for me and ship the goods to the USA for me. I would, of course, pay for your services. biggrin.gif

PM me if you are able to help a brother out. Thanks.

The Marlow SWB is probably the finest looking shell SWB on the market. nod[1].gif
