Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum, Rhett) - Page 295
I know these aren't Cordovan, but C&J for RL is 2 out of 3. Who here has recently scored a killer deal on one of the pairs of Prestburys that have been going around? I think there were some eBay sellers that may not have known exactly what they had/didn't list effectively.
I think that may just be reflective of the market for white suede shoes.
Not exactly a staple people are willing to pay top (eBay) price for.
Agreed - if we were talking shell from Alden. Shell from C&J can be tricky when it comes to brushing (sometimes brushing makes it look worse). Because of the dryness factor, I brush my C&J shell less than my Alden shell - and Carmina shell lesser still.
What's up with that? I just noticed that Carmina shell is really dry too, and both Carmina and Alden shell seem to be pretty prone to drying to the point where you can actually see the pinprick pore holes (at least that's what I think they are) in them.
I'm late to the party, but based on your descriptions of the fit on AE shoes you have, you will want a 7.5 or 8 in Lindrick. If you have a high instep, the 7.5 might be too tight.
I've been beating mine to hell this winter. Basically, they get worn once to twice a week, sometimes to work, and definitely on the weekends. Out in the snow and slush every time. They are breaking in very nicely for me. Here are mine today.
Awesome, I'll give them a try. Thank you guys!
Edit: Speaking of Gianni's, I think I need to jump on that bandwagon based on pictures I've seen on this thread. I'm sure I'm the 1000th person asking this question, but how's the fit as compared to Lindricks? What would be considered a "good deal" for a new pair?
It depends on what you are looking for. I got the same size in Giannis and Lindricks, wear the Giannis with thicker socks and they're great. If I were going to wear thinner dress-type socks, I would need to go down 1/2 from Lindrick.
