+1. While I am very fond of mine, I am jealous that they don't have anywhere near the character that some others do.

Eh? Sorry, what does "sun tanning" mean? Leave them out in the sun? Deets?

the more sun exposure, the lighter the shell gets. you can leave it in the sun, but most wouldnt recommend to do it for very long

Sorry if this has been rehashed in the past, but I'm looking for a little guidance with Lindrick sizing.

 

I tend to be a US 8.5E or 9E in most Allen Edmonds shoes (closer to 9E).  I have tried on the RL Marlow in US (?) 8.5D and it is the best fit of the various sizes (I presume that the sizes on the US RL website are indeed US and not UK).  I have also worn the shoes in my avatar, a pair of CJ for BB longwings also on the 325 last (and again, they are 8.5D, presumably US).

 

I was looking at the sizing chart found here:  http://cdn.styleforum.net/3/39/39418c67_ScreenShot2015-03-30at5.02.44PM.png

 

When it talks about TTS or TTS-1 or what have you, is it talking about US to UK specifically?  For instance, if it says "TTS" (like the Rhett loafer in that document), does that mean "a US 8.5D wearer should order a UK 7.5E"?  Or does it mean "a US 8.5D wearer should order a UK 8.5E"?  

 

Basically, I always mentally subtract 1 size from US to UK.  So when saying "TTS" with these shoes, are we talking "true to size after subtracting the 1"?  Or "TTS because the shoe runs a half size big"?  

 

Sorry if this doesn't make sense.

 

 

 

I talked to Lauren at CJ and she recommended the UK 8E in the Lindrick for me, which as I understand would be like a US 9D, no?  Because a 9D RL Marlow is definitely too big/long on me.  Or does the Lindrick truly run short compared to the Marlow, despite both being the 325 last?

 

Thanks for any guidance!

I believe that is why she recommended 8E.

Are you referring to the RL Marlow wingtips? If so, the UStoUK sizing on those seemed to have changed recently. On older pics on this forum, the RL boxes would list and US8.5D as an UK8, implying a 1/2 size difference during conversion. But when I recently purchased an RL Marlow wingtip, an US8.5D is now listed as a 7.5UK. So to answer your question, sizing using your RL marlows might be tricky depending on when you tried them on. If they are within the last year, a RL 8.5D is probably a UK 7.5. If they are an older pair, an RL 8.5D might refer to a UK 8. Others chime in if I'm incorrect. For reference, I'm 8.5D on the RL Marlow wingtip and a 7.5UK on the 335 last. So my true C&J size is 7.5UK.

TTS is not in reference to any US to UK conversion. The chart you linked are for C&J for RL so everything is going to be in US size anyway. TTS means if you are normally an 8.5D, then you will be a US 8.5D in this other shoe as well. As far as UK conversion, I always use the subtract 1 from US to get my UK size, which works ok for most (but not all brands). Im roughly a US 8.5E on brannock, and I fit a 7.5UK well on the 325 and 335 last. So to answer your example question, a US 8.5D should normally order a UK 7.5E if the shoe is TTS. However, to complicate matters, in the past I think Lauren has told people to use a 1/2 size conversion between US and UK sizes (making a US8.5D a UK8E). But, I dunno, subtracting 1 size down from from US works for me in C&J
