Your mileage may vary.

 

Just depends on your feet.

Right, I don't think there is a definitive answer.

By the way, sort of an odd question, do anyone have a spare pare of the original shoe lace for the Marlow Wingtip that they're willing to sell. Just bought a used wingtip marlow from someone on SF, and turns out he didn't have the original shoelace..., went to the C&J store in Manhattan, they say they don't have it in stock at the moment either (they have something that looks more like waxed tweed, i.e. more country than my liking).

PM me if you have one and willing to part it, I will pay...

Ha I agree. I remember seeing some PTBs posted here earlier with I think blue laces that looked fantasitc.

Although not cordovan, these longwings are made by C&J:

Wilberforce Wingtip

I love the arch nails on the sole. Nice detail.

I'm not sure they're C&J.

Seconds show up on ebay now and then identified as such.

The medallion on those RRL longwings


seems to match both Cheaney

and Church's


of course the nail pattern on the heels seem to match C&J but then so do Grenson unless you compare them side by side.
The extra nails at the waist are a cool added detail.

C&J longwings for reference.

Now that I look at it, I think you may be right.

I wouldn't waste my time with them. IMO, they're not great laces and you can probably do better with laces from Allen Edmonds or a good shoe repair store like VIP Shoe Restorers.
