Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum, Rhett) - Page 233
In that case I was born old. I've fought a losing battle against the pointy hordes since I took an interest in shoes seven years ago. For a while Tricker's were trending, but they are pretty much out of the picture now around here. I though I was going to become a Church's loyalist until I discovered that Alden shoes are actually worth the 900 dollar price tag they have in Europe.
Howdy folks Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
was this a natural aging or did you have to polish it to get this beautiful lighter color? if so, what polish did you use.
the ones i tried on at the RL store looked like this.

About 4 year old pair versus brand new pair.
Alden is blowing up as a regular item for J Crew. I'd say Alden and the barrie last is at least somewhat trendy in that regard.
I was wondering if the dark brown cordovan that C&J use on the Harlech and Skye 2 color matches the cordovan that use for RL. Difficult to tell from pictures.
In the long view was pretty keen on some plaza captoe & barrie wingtip boots (probably #8, cigar if i could find it)
but the Harlech and Skye 2 are making me rethink. Being from the UK they are all pretty close in price to each other - and it feels a little more patriotic (not that i am into any of that kind of thing) - ultimately it will come down to how the last shape looks.
If the color is the same for C&J Mainline as C&J for RL i think i will be swayed for one of them at least.
I don't know if they will look like those, but surely they will lighten changing their colour.
Depends on the colour they started, actually almost all pairs are very dark brown, they used to be dark cognac from new and they age better with fantastic patina, Countingsheep and hoit1981 pairs are a great example.
