Lot's of bloom! (Click to show)
And comparison shots, lined up to floorboard then put shoe brush, not exact but close, Lindrick is 10.5, Gianni is 10
Wow! Awesome job! The look awesome. I do agree with you that the laces feel a bit casual for the shoes.
While I think the Lindrick is awesome (esp at $654+tax), the broguing around the ankle is a little awkward. I prefer the Skye2. I suppose though, if you're trying to obtain a slightly different look from the Marlow, the Lindrick is a solid alternative. I also prefer the dainite sole on a somewhat casual boot like this.
Are flat laces considered dressier? I like the flat lace look on alden boots so I was thinking of putting some flat laces from amazon on my lindricks. I thought flat laces were more casual.
Been out of town on a business trip to NYC, and wore my 2.5-year old Marlow PTBs. Interestingly, even though they have been worn a good deal, I found they are still breaking in, and nothing like walking through airports and around the city for 2 days to break in shoes.
Near the beginning of the trip:
In the hotel room, at the end of 2 days:
Walking to dinner:
Today, I broke out the marlow wingtips. I am getting concerned that I might have been better served to go down 1/2 size in these, as they break in. We'll see how they are at the end of the day.
Giannis will be Friday.
