Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum,... - Page 70
Just got a hardly worn pair of the Marlow penny loafers which I'd been thinking about ever since I saw this post. They were a little dry when I got them so I've followed the instructions in the Leffot video and they seem to have come out really well - the sun hasn't risen yet over here so I've not seen them yet in natural light. I'll take pics later but I'm a happy camper! The brown on these is really special.
Please excuse the lower quality of the phone camera pics. Here they are:

Found them in a store near my house. Both pairs appear to be new but for some scuffing (from being tossed about) that I polished out and some shop wear on the soles.
...to Marlow wingtip owners...if I wear 5.5UK C&J 348 and AE 7D Strand, is the RL Marlow 7D US (their smallest offering) .5 size too big and I am just out of f&*&in luck? Thanks in advance...just getting ready for the Private Sale mad rush ... SA mentioned that they have an upcoming 25% sale but will confirm if shells are included and the details of the Private Sale (40% plus ?% kicker)..will post for details
I wear 6E on the 348 and 6.5E/7D On the AE 5 last and the RL C&J are roomy for me. Rationalization works great but buyer's remorse is worse. I've wanted the Lindrick's but 6.5 in C&J is too big.
I was told in Dec. to come back the first week of May for 40% off the Marlow wingtips.
