Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum,... - Page 233

FYI, I've updated the Harlech MTO thread. Whiskey cordovan is available, so the current plan is Harlech, whiskey, all eyelets, storm welt, double leather. Let me / the thread know if you're interested.

IJR, couldn't you get a proxy from this side of the pond and save yourself a few euros? There is something to be said for a JL single-cut Becketts or the classic Phillip II, without a doubt very nice shoes, but I wouldn't want to take a walking tour of London or Paris in either one. For my money Crockett & Jones offers an excellent collection of footwear at a competitive price.

First day out in the wild with marlow penny's. I've been trying to break them in on carpet at home, but wearing them all day will do the trick. In about 6 months...

IJR, your kidding about blobby Alden's being trendy now aren't you?

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.

So your saying that if I put my shoes out on my sun deck they'll begin to look like Countingsheep's Marlow wingtips?

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.
