Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum, Rhett) - Page 510
PSA: Not Ralph, but these cordovan C&Js for BB will hit close to 40% off on May 18th:
May 18th is the corporate sale (30% off). And there's a gift card promo where for every $150 egift card you buy, you get a bonus $25.
So the shoes will be marked down to $700.
But if you buy 4 gifts cards at $150 each, that's $600 (+ bonus $100). Which covers the costs of the shoes.
What exactly is the "Corporate Sale"? Is this a sale that's open to everyone?
Wasn't the shell on the Polo branded PTBs and shortwings a shade or two lighter than the RL models?
I have had many of the older polo branded models like the jodhpurs, loafers, and ptbs. Currently I have a pair of polo ptbs, RL ptbs, RL loafers, and lindricks. The finishing and coloration of the shells were different from the polo to RL models, there seems to be less variance now but still changes in finishing and of course variance in the shells as supplied by horween. If you look into the C&J reddit AMA they talk a little bit about how their shell finishing has changed over time. To continue anecdotally, I find that the fit of the RL branded PTBs to be larger than their polo counterparts.
If I only knew my sizing, instakop for sure. So insane. Thanks to @rydenfan for the tip.
I'd size down 1/2 from normal sizing.
