It's been on my radar for some time - I stumbled across his last post yesterday whilst hard at work and managed to get a pair of Marlow wingtips from eddievddr10, who is an absolute gentleman and pleasure dealing with, he even dropped them to near where I work!!
Thanks to DpprDr for your advice on sizing - I've been fortunate to get it spot on, only tried on the right foot - it fits like a glove! Went through this whole thread in less than two days to seek out whether I had made the right sizing choice.I guess I should of tried the other foot but was busy in the office and needed to head straight to B.Nelson after work to get the toe plates added.

Boy I now see what all the hype is about - the most I've ever spent on shoes to date and first ever pair of shell. The leather looks amazing and will look even better after a quick buff up.
Can't wait to get them back however don't think I'll be slipping into these until the fall...pictures will follow next week when I get them back from B Nelson.
Another thumbs up for SF and the wealth of information on here
