Yowzerz those are nice! Beautiful coloring on them. I agree with Chips, they make my Alden PTB's look chubby and dated in comparison.

They both are a great look, just different style wise. I find that I reach for the 325 lasted shoes a tiny bit more than my Barrie lasted shoes but both have a place in my wardrobe.

Got mine off of the bay recently.  They were NOS.  Never been worn, but they have the "Polo" name on the soles rather than "Ralph Lauren"..... so I'm pretty sure they were a year or two old.

Ha ha, that will lift with some elbow grease. Spread those cordovan oils around in a heated fashion .. Lol

Not that anyone cares .. But this shoe is in fact my second favorite Marlow model just a nick behind the Marlow PTB. Considering a backup pair just in case they cease making them. Yes they are that well built and handsomely designed.

Great looking derby's sir. Your photo really shows off the ptb's ability to go casual.

Eggcellent sir. Personally I finish with a very fine sandpaper suitable for teak wood.
