Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum,... - Page 35

Im thinking about modifying my recently acquired tassel loafers to something a little different. What I have in mind: chop off the tassel and instead have the leather ribbon just wrap around the shoe. I'm also considering switching to commando soles for a more manly shoe. C&J for RL 'Manloaf'

That could be a pretty cool idea or an epic failure. Either way, Im going to need to see pics.

wore my Marlow shell pennies for the first time today, really wonderful. I wear an 8D in Alden and 7.5 in UK sized C&J and ordered 7.5D in the Marlow's. Overall a tad tight, but not enough for me to exchange or return them. We'll see how they wear in. Also ordered a pair of USA made RL's, but the build quality doesn't feel nearly as good as the C&J's. Had I not paid like $250 for them, they'd be going back.

I guess I might be one of the few who wears the Marlow Pennies TTS. I am a 9.5E and 9.5 fit perfectly. Getting it for 62% off makes it even better. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It's got some heel slippage but it feels like it will go away after breaking in the sole.

Just received the tassels--here's what i can tell you (I have the pennies, wings & PTB): the tassels, fit-wise, are basically right in-between the pennies and the wings/ptb. They are about 1/4 to 1/2 inch longer than the pennies, slightly shorter than the wings/ptb. They are slightly wider than the pennies, slightly narrower than the wings/ptb. They are pointier than both the pennies and wings/ptb. Heel to ball is very close to the fit of the pennies. It's actually a pretty good fit for me.

Regarding the last--the tassel must be last 72. It is definitely a different last than the pennies and the wings/ptb. I think they will work for me--now the work begins on bending that double sole so they are wearable.

frown.gif Don't do it - the tassels are great as is

If you want to put a commando sole on one of these shoes, I'd go with the PTB or the boot

The PTB and Boot look casual enough for my tastes. I like the shape of the tassel but im having trouble incorporating it into my wardrobe
