I am also not thoroughly convinced that the Marlow wingtip is actually on the normal 325 last.

I don't know why this keeps coming up. C&J has confirmed that it is the 325 last, one-half size down. So a 9D in the Marlow is an 8.5E on the 325. Straight from C&J.

I suppose there are differing opinions on the matter.

Those just don't look like the same last.

I don't know why everyone always exclude the possibility that RL use/used customized last as Alden with BB.

The wingtip looks 325 ok I agree but for example the tassel isn't for sure made on 325 or 72, the C&J actual tassel lasts.

The word I had from the Mail Order & Repairs Dept. at C&J was "the tassel loafers is made on the last 302, and the Penny loafers is made on last 314" and "We use the last 325 for the Marlow shell cordovan lace up models.".

 

This info was from March this year.

I had an email from C&J confirming the 325 last for the Darlton wingtips, though my email may be 5 years old. I was told it's the Pembroke in shell cordovan, with a double leather sole, on the 325 last.

Edit: Oops, my email from C&J refers to the Darlton wingtips. Post corrected.

Based on NAMOR's post, I would have sworn the the two Marlow wingtips were on different lasts!

Thanks for this info,
I've seen 302 last only in some Peal & Co models, I've suspected it was made on that last.

Maybe when they changed from the Darlton to the Marlow, they changed the last.

Still I think the PTB is on the 341 last.  Mine are slightly smaller than the Wingtip, or it's in my mind that it is ... I thought for sure I read it was not on the same last as the 325 Wingtip.

One is ~5 years old and the other one is new. Perhaps the old one got stretched out from ~5 years worth of use.

Is the kicker 15%? Also in store only or online? Thanks
post #1755 of 6296
The kicker is 15%. I have no idea if they are on sale in stores. I recall in the past there has been controversy about that. I am simply reporting that they are on sale in the online pre-sale.
