Looks like navy is the majority verdict as of now. I'm sure there will be more whiskey runs later that I could jump on :-)

Hi @Gabru, I think the one thing the group didn't want was brown shell. The last discussion we could open up. I don't want the Radnor / Snowdon last, but all others I'm open to.

My preference would be navy shell, as I'm expecting the Whiskey Harlech in October.  I also lean towards non-brass hardware.  The contrast may be a little too much on a darker shade of shell for me. And is the Dundee make up 100% decided?  I may not want as much broguing but that's not a deal killer for me.  Looking forward to see how this takes shape.

Cool, I've made a note. Thanks!

With Harlechs and Marlows, my C&J whiskey quota is filled for now

Ladies and gentlemen, the Warlow:






My pictures aren't great, but they seem to capture the color (and the color gradient) decently well. Unfortunately, they're a hair big. Even more unfortunately, it's just heel slip, and it feels perfect everywhere else; the 8.5 would probably be uncomfortable. Guess I'll have to try an insole.

Gorgeous! Thanks for the pictures. Did you initially have concerns over your sizing when ordering?
post #5137 of 6049
Yea, I've never owned C&J, but I couldn't pass up the Lindrick or the Warlow. The sizing advice was damn good, but obviously not perfect. With the Warlow, I really don't think the 8.5 would have felt comfortable: I think it would have been too tight in the forefoot. The Lindrick, despite being the same size, doesn't give me any heel slip. It just feels a bit big if I force my foot forward, but it's not like I'm walking out of them. With the Warlow, the heel slip means it's unwearable until I get an insole, or try thicker socks.

I should note that I have narrowish, rather low-volume feet, so my sizing tends to be weird. For example, a 9D on the Alden Barrie fits well, but the 9.5 gives me a ton of heel slip. On the other hand, the 9UK (which I've heard maps to a 10US) on Bonafe's 363MOD is too small, but thankfully, not small enough to make the boots unwearable.

Gotcha, thanks!

The shoes look great. Can't wait for mine in a few months.

Only change I'd maybe make is I'd prefer not to have such a light thread for the welt stitching.

Honestly, I feel like if my feet (heels in particular) were a bit wider, this would be a damn near perfect fit. Even the Barrie in 9.5 is great everywhere but the heel.

I actually really like the white thread as I feel like the whisky pops nicely due to the contrast. On the other hand, it's Horween whisky cordovan... it'd be tough to make it look bad.

So you're a 9D Barrie and you went UK9 in these?

I prefer navy. Definitely want a rubber sole, preferably Ridgeway. Their commando is a bit much.

Heh, I asked if we could get more broguing a la the Skye or Islay.
post #5142 of 6049
Yea, that was based on the best guess of Pernilla and Lauren. I'm a 10US.

Agreed! Let's hope they "accidentally" make it darker for our run.

I imagine the white stitching gets darker with wear. I bet a toothbrush and tan wax would darken them easily

As I understand it, the 2.0 will not have contrast stitching.  It wasn't an option that we discussed, IIRC, though @Watchman1 mentioned that the 1.0 had it after we finalized the makeup of the 2.0.  Different strokes, to be sure, but I'm not a big fan of the high contrast welt, edge, and outsole thing on something with the expected lifespan of a cordovan shoe.

 

My younger brother, the touring musician, laughs at me from his mountain of Trickers.  He'd dig a navy Dundee... if it were black or #8.  :happy:
