Old debate but I think most folks on the street these days look at wingtips as being more formal than plain toes.

Oxford Cloth, Button Down.

I agree with slacks and Sportcoat you are well in the shoes comfort level. Even with it being chiseled...

Wanting to get grommets placed on a pair of shell boots with blind eyelets. Is this something any reputable cobbler can do? There are a few here in Salt Lake that have been around for 20 or so years. My only hesitation is them being shell and me living in a small to medium sized city...

Thanks Mike. And what are your thoughts on this particular shell model? I don't think I've see anything from Enzo in your collection.

How is the sizing of the marlow as compared to the Alden Barrie last? If I wear an 8 in the Barrie and 8.5 in EG ( 606, 888) what size should I get in C&j, specifically marlow or plain toe shoe

My own experience was the Marlow Wingtip fits similarly to the Alden Barrie.

If you're referring to the navy shell oxfords directly above, they're from Yanko, a Spanish shoemaker.
