Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum,... - Page 112

Mine have certainly not lightened in the year and a half I have had them. On my feet today by coincidence:

Interesting. Maybe I'll use some Saphir Renovateur which tends to take some of the dye off. Then, not polish them for a few years too...

The display models get really light under the bright light so that's probably why some have lightened

FWIW, I use Renovateur frequently, as the C&J shells seem to dry out quickly... I never use polish.

Ding, ding, ding. My light pair was a display which explains the color. Check the 1st post to see how loght affects shell color

Is it just me or does the one on the left look a bit wider too?

chipshot, I don't see an obvious last number inside my MacCallums. FWIW, the numbers are, on one side "1183374/49895" and on the other side, "ALM 46140 11 1/2D". Comparing these numbers with those in my Marlow shortwings, which I know are on the 325 last, I can find no last number here.

Although I didn't remember this, my Marlow shortwings are US size 12D and my MacCallums are US size 11 1/2 D, so I sized down 1/2 size for the MacCallums and they fit similarly to the Marlow shortwings, with ample room in the toebox (US size 12D is my normal shoe size in most makes and lasts). I bought the MacCallums in-store, so I was able to try them on and bought the best-fitting boots. Of course, YMMV, but I would recommend sizing down 1/2 size from your size in the Marlow shortwings, so 9D MacCallums.

Some RL shortwings on auction on ebay. They are pretty beat for only 4 - 5 wears and priced pretty high too.

He must kept them on a few weeks end time he wore them. How can you expect unshined used shoes to sell for $500+ ??

This guy must be lying. I think this pair had 30+ wears.
post #1679 of 6050
Easily unless he weighs 500 pounds and walks 50 miles each wear. Might even need A resole soon given front toe wear

I can finally join the club...
