I must have missed the clean part.

 

Thanks for pointing that out.

 

Cheers,

Posted earlier today on a thread what I'm pretty sure is in VSC, http://www.styleforum.net/t/333578/ingredients-in-venetian-shoe-cream/15#post_6242967

 

I use both VSC and reno on my shell. Saphir says to use their Cordovan specific products on shell because it does not contain turpentine, and that turpentine is bad for shell. But anyone that has used VSC and does any woodworking knows that VSC smells very strongly of turpentine, and as mentioned Nick Horween recommends VSC for shell. Reno contains turpentine so... Stripping off the excess cream on shell is important to get a good shine IME. I have reached the point where I use Renomat on most of my new shell that has cream on them to strip them clean and use the Mac method.

 

I am a 10D in AE 1 and 5 last, 9.5 on Alden Barrie and went with the 9.5D in Marlow. I had to stretch the left shoe because of tension along the base of the little toe. I have never had luck with European sizing, and find the Marlow's typical of that. Not a perfect fit but it works.

 

For trees I find that the Epic Woodlore fill the high vamp of the Marlow perfectly.

 

Good looking shoe no matter how you look at it, though fit is number one priority to me. Wore them today, I haven't done anything to them except brushing and Reno. At least so far:

I don't know for sure but it seems like Reno has more turpentine, because when using it more dye seems to come off onto your towel. People don't smell it as much because Reno is actually scented with perfume.

No, you can't wear Lindricks in the summer, let alone with a suit. Unless you are wearing a flannel or tweed suit.

Depends on where your summer is at (Alaska vs. FL) but the Lindrick is a fairly heavy looking boot and I concur with forex when it comes to suiting.

I have some C&J Finsbury in 10.5 E (UK size). Does anyone know how these would differ in size from the ones made for RL? Would it be the same 10.5, or are they listed as US sizes?

 

Thanks

I have no intention of doing so. Cordovan boots in the summer would be a bit too warm and not that comfortable.

I wear shell boots in 105-110 degree heat. Perfectly fine unless your car and workplace have no A/C

If you are in NY, NY as your profile suggests and will be spending any amount of time walking outside, I would not recommend it. My Marlow wingtips are noticeably hotter in the summer months. I still wear them but I retire a lot of my casual shell high boots June-August. That's suede and loafer season.

Finsbury is the 341 last while the Marlow is the 325. You can probably sleuth around SF for a good description of the 341 fit.
post #2367 of 6127

I go TTS with the 341 and down a half on the 325.  The 341 is shorter and narrower than the 325 last.

post #2368 of 6127

Thanks a lot! Appreciated! 

And, are they listed as US or UK size when made for RL?
