For the Dundee? I don't have a strong preference for any particular sole. For those that want Dainite, I don't see why they would be opposed to either the Ridgeway or the Victoria. Indeed, one of those soles might make it an even more uncommon pair of boots.

 

Would you like to be added on the interest list?

Of course. That's what I proposed above in the first place. You want in?


Done!

I'm interested, pending details of the final makeup and pricing.

Yes. But I believe I was already in? If not I am now.

Okay, sure. Once I hear back from Lauren about what's possible, I will open it up for a discussion on the makeup. Thanks!

Whoops, sorry about that, yes, you were one of the first people on my list :-P

Through UK mail order, GBP 520 and up, VAT already removed, for benchgrade

Through NY shop, USD 1250 and up for bench, 1450 for hand

Last step on the C&J Marlow PTB. I need to compile a list of everyone's names for Lauren. Sorry, I didn't realize this was a requirement!

8 = too tight and narrow
8.5 = pretty good all around fit, what I hope to emulate with GMTO orders
9 = much too long

I also own a pair of CJ for BB shoes on the 325 in size 8.5 and they fit well, like the 8.5 Marlows.

Based on all this, Lauren recommended sizing down a half size to UK 8E. I had always learned that US = UK + 1, but after much back and forth I ultimately decided on half a size down to 8E. I am really hoping I guessed correctly.

I have a pair of CJ Pembrokes in 8E on the way to confirm the sizing, but I doubt I'd be able to make edits to my order by the time they arrive.

I wear my Marlows (wingtips, tassels, and pennies) in U.S. 8.5D and have my Harlechs and Onslows in U.K. 8E. I think you should be fine depending on what you are ordering. I do have to say though my Onslows (in shell) feel looser than my Marlow wingtips.

Thanks for the feedback. I ordered Lindricks and whisky Marlow wingtips via the two GMTOs, so same last. Hoping they end up fitting correctly!

@Churchill W
Would you happen to have an AE/Alden last and size for reference?

Alden (Copley and Aberdeen) 9D though fit could be better on both
Allen Edmonds (1, 5, 7, 8-108): 9D. The 8-108 is the best fitting last for me.
Brannock: U.S.9D

Does this mean that not everybody has paid up? I reached out to Lauren, but haven't heard back yet.

I don't think anyone has been charged yet.

Correct - I think the problem is she doesn't have everyone's emails in one central location. We have not been charged, but I think she has all 12 CCs. She asked me to compile the list of names, but I only had Reddit/SF user IDs, which she said wouldn't be helpful.
