Thank you, good sir.

There is C&J hope for me yet... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I have both, and the Marlow PTB. Letting go of any of them would be tough.

Not sure the conversion is that simple. In my experience, the C&J/Brooks Brothers "D" width is narrower than my C&J shoes in UK "E" width. Could just be the lasts chosen by BB, but they are certainly narrower than equivalent sizes in the 325 and 341 lasts.

Seeing as I don't presently own a pair of Lindricks I would vote for the Marlow wingtip.The Marlow short wings by C&J for Ralph Lauren are a pretty nice RTW Goodyear welted dress shoe.

Luckily I don't have to make that choice.

I'm fortunate enough to have gotten both but at the time I stretched a lot to get the Lindrick first, then circled back for the Marlow.

I'd also say that, if it was a noob who asked the question I'd tell them get the Marlow. My thinking being if the boot factor hasn't already made the decision of 'LINDRICK!!!!" for them, they'd do better with a shoe first.

Lindrick. However, I find the Skye II to be a nice substitute for those without it.

I suppose it goes to the issue of the variances in handmade shoes and boots, but my experience has been different. For example, my US9.5D Coniston-like made for BB boot is roomier in all respects when compared against my UK8.5E Coniston. I like the fit of the US9.5D better.

My BB C&J shoes are very narrow at the D width. They literally cut up my feet. It must be a unique last.

As a point of reference, I tried a Tetbury in an 'E' width, and it felt a but better.

I am an 8EE or 8EEE in my Allen Edmonds and tried on a BB C&J in size 8.5E on what was labeled as the 341 last. I use the term tried on very loosely because I could not get my foot entirely into the shoe. Even when I've tried AE in 8E I was able to get the shoe on, they were just too snug. Even on the 341 last (which my searching determined was one of C&J's wider lasts), I can't imagine that it was a standard US E width

Pics are appalling, sorry. My camera is packed away somewhere whilst renovating the house so relied on my mobile and poor lighting, hah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hopefully you've got a vague idea now though. Not sure I'd wear them often with denim if they were more polished (prefer the Islay or Snowdon for denim anyway) but I think they work nicely with chinos and a shirt for a business casual environment. Tattoos are optional.
