You do know they are both on the 314 last, right? Thus, the shape follows the same line.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your point and/or underestimating your knowledge, but I imagine they are comparing to this Marlow: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1812817

Yes, you must misunderstand. The Marlow loafer and Prescott loafer are made using the same 314 Crockett & Jones last.  The roundness in the shape of the last is the same.

 

When people talk about a squared off, or chiseled, toe, it is the shape of the last at the toe to which they refer...

You were smart not to wait. One or two hundred dollars in potential savings in a few years will seem meaningless. I wear my Marlows TTS but many go half size down. Good buy. nod[1].gif

After seeing Mike's pictures I have no regrets for paying 765.  I have spoken to some people who work with Horween and shell is going to be more difficult to get in the near future.  Alden takes about two years to fill an order for special colors these days so I would be paying more waiting for them.  Now when can I get some CJ RL ptbs?  :laugh:

I will have to take another look. It may have been the angle, but they looked ver square to me.

edit: so yeah if it really was a mistake and a 1 time crazy sale, they may never ever put them on sale at least not that low ever again. maybe the 500ish level is the new norm frown.gif

They say this shit to me all the time.  I've bought every makeup in Marlow on the cheap/sale RL site.  They may well be putting the skids on the wings - tassel's - penny's going on sale as they were NOT included in the last go around; frankenmonk and the other cordo boots were indeed included.  These retailers say this all the time about shell cordovan, I've scored at BB as well on sale when the sales reps tell me I can't... f that bro .. watch me
