After letting them dry and brushing them they still gave a healthy cordovan glow.

I am starting to think the "only use paste wax" along with brushing and buffing recommendation is geared toward Alden and the special finish they seem to apply to their shell. Both my AE shell and the Lindricks have had dry areas that really benefit from occasional conditioning. 

So far for me based on my limited testing Lexol>Sapir Cordovan Cream>VSC>Reno. Though I will admit that a higher shine can be produced by everything besides the Lexol. I might add a layer of cordovan cream to add a little protection and shine.

Yes, that is the one I used.

Are you supposed to use that stuff generously? Or a very thin coat like you would do with cordovan creams?

I've never really seen too many people mention it at all so I have no clue what would be recommended. I used as much as I thought my boots needed by my own discretion, for me it was two decent coats of the conditioner before I felt they where hydrated.

I have had great results with lexol conditioner on both my Marlows and Lindricks; the dryness is close to non-existent, they are noticeably softer, and they have gained an amazing depth and shade. I use it quite generously, but you will notice when the leather is sufficiently moisturized.

Hey guys, I was wondering since a good number of you guys own both a pair of 975s and marlow wingtips, which do you prefer if price is the same. On ebay, brand new marlows and 975s cost roughly the same. So with price being equal, which do you prefer? I know this is an RL CJ forum but I really want to hear your unbiased thoughts. Excuse me but I will be cross posting this in the Alden thread as well. BTW I already own some Lindricks.

For me it's tough as I have both and like both. I wear with different outfits. Both are dark brown/ cigar shell

^ If I could only pick one...Marlow all the way, but it really does depend on your own fit and style (and you already have the Lindrick).

They are the Frankenmonks. The prices of those got ridiculously low on the website a while back - it seemed no one liked them very much.


I ordered them and ended up returning.  The price was awesome (under $400), but I couldn't get over the odd design.  They looked like a great cap toe blucher until you looked down and saw the "unique" looking piece that served as the strap.  Thought my pants would cover up the strange portion of the shoe, but still had a problem with them.  Otherwise, this is a really nice shoe; finish, shell quality (not dry and flaky), construction, etc...

Tough call but I'd give the edge to the 975s. (I own both).  Aldens have a a much easier break in. Aldens may be more versatile too.  I have no problems wearing the marlows with a suit, but with jeans I'm a little hesitant.  975s can go with dress trou (suit) as well as jeans easy. Shortwings seem to be more refined than longwings. Hence, more for dress wear.

Wing tips, I assume? I'm looking for a pair of PTB's in an 8 or 8.5, if anyone has them.
