Im a new user at this forum. I have a question regarding the marlow full wing-tip. How is the size on this shoe? I have Crockett and Jones Islay in UK6, and Lowndes, ashdown, boston and cavendish in 6,5. I work in a shop having a big Polo RL corner, and because of that I have a great discount on everything from RL. Im wondering about ordering the marlow full wing-tip. Can anyone help me with how the size is, compared to the other shoes I have?

Thank you smile.gif

Hi ainnjers, I wear 6.5EUK for 348/358 oxford lace up and for the Marlow I wear 7.5D US. The Lowndes is on the 348 last which is the same as the oxfords I have for C&J however not sure on the difference on the fit vs monk straps

Just discovered this thread ( kind of wish I didn't haha) and I just wanted to get a feel for sizing. I would love to pick up a pair of Gianni's and Marlow wing tips within the next 18 months or so. Just want to get a feel for sizing, and if i'm on the right track.

 

I am TTS 12D/E. Wider than a normal D, but not quick an E. I plan on wearing the Gianni's with a medium thickness wool sock most of the time (and jeans/chinos). And the Marlow with dress socks. Am I correct in thinking I would want to get both the Gianni and the Marlow in 12D? I read here that the Gianni fits large, and should be 1/2 down from TTS, but my wide foot and thick socks makes me think 12d would be perfect. Same idea for the width on the marlow, and I read it fits a 1/2 large, but a touch narrow.

 

For reference, 12E in AE shell dalton boots fits perfectly with my wool socks. 12D in wolverine 1k boots fit at least a half size large on me with wool sock still. And 12D in the RL sanderson by AE longwings fit fairly well, if a touch narrow, with dress socks.

 

Am I on the right track here?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

edit: also, am I correct in thinking that @eddievddr10 is the first place I should look for getting both of these models?

Does anyone know the current retail price of the Skye 2 (either in $ or £).

^ @eddievddr10 has size 13 Lindrick available
post #5796 of 6078
Yeah I saw that. Was just wondering about the Skye 2 though. They used to be £595 right, and then there was a price increase?

Even at 595 they couldn't keep it in stock
post #5799 of 6078
Yeah I bet. I wondering if Purdeys recent price increase is preemptive of a C&J increase?

Impossible.  The Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Fed Chair say there's no inflation.

Attempted to do a little work with my Marlows tonight with a damp cloth. Started in a very inconspicuous area on the inside portion of the heel.

Very gentle circles with a damp microfiber cloth. It made the shell very cloudy and then almost a gritty texture. I stopped and applied a little Renovateur. As I rubbed the Reno in, it returned to it's cloudy look.

Any suggestions here? Some cream was coming off with both the damp cloth and Reno, so I would ultimately like to get all that stuff off.

Out of the box they look pretty dull, but the damp cloth and Reno treatments seemed to worsen the dullness of it.

Was the gritty texture due to the cream coming off, not the actual texture of the shell?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Take a look back to and read starting at my post about a similar gritty texture on my Lindricks and see if you think it could be similar, NAMOR and I seemed to experience something at least similar. I think it could be dryness but eventually I found that VSC and/ or neutral Saphir Cordovan cream worked the best to keep it at bay and well conditioned. Have not had any issues lately.

Like AE, I think C&J puts some sort of finishing polish on them and you could use the reno to try and get most of it off and then condition with the Saphir cream once all done. I would be patient and do only a small round of polish removal maybe once every 2-3 weeks for a couple of rounds. I suggest not trying to get it all off at once only because I find the Reno to be quite harsh on the leather. I like to give it ample time with the cordovan cream and some brushing in between. Unless you find not much needs to be removed of course.

 

Keep us posted

Thanks Burz. Would you suggest only putting the cordovan cream on the areas that have been reno'd then? Just wondering if the differences would be subtle enough.

Any preference between Saphir cream and VSC?

Saphir Cordovan Creme > VSC

Can people here help me out with sizing the penny loafer?

 

I wear 8.5UK in all my shoes (C&J 341, Meermin Olfe, Loake Capital, AS 109 and 99).

I have a high instep with a skinny heel though so some of the above fit better than others.

 

Would a US9 or 9.5 fit me better?
