I have the Darltons and also Aldens in cigar. I agree the Darlton is more of true dark brown whereas the cigar has avery faint olive (or some other tint I can't quite place) tint, but definitely not the same.

they are pretty much dark brown. The pics on shoebacca are accurate.

They also look "like a cigar", in that dark brown way, but among shoeheads Cigar is a specific color of Alden shell. In recent years Alden's cigar has that greenish tint, as previously mentioned.

So can anyone tell me if these are made by C&J and what last? Thanks.
post #19 of 75
yes 325

I believe the RL Marlow is basically the C&J Ashdown - Last 341. I don't think the C&J version is available in brown though. Not sure if the Dalton wingtip is based on a C&J shoe or if it's just a special model they make for RL.

I have the 341 in a boot and I don't think they are the same as my marlowes. could be wrong though.

Interesting. My shell Marlows are a 12D and now that I've lost some decent weight I find to be a tad large. Yesterday the Ash in 11.5 came and I found them to be too small across the arch.

I'm usually a 12D but have sized down in some other PRL's to a better fit. Perhaps on this last I'm simply inbetween.

I might have kept them to see how they broke in, but my wife just did a shoe inventory and I'm on the shit list. Back to Shoebacca...

I just ordered the Marlowe. I used code MCFEB from http://www.mycoupons.com/coupons/shoebacca.com and saved 25%. This brought the total from $549 - $137.50 = $412.49

Does anyone own the Marlowe wingtips and Darlton wingtips? They look soo identical. Instead of buying the $795.00 from RL.com, I bought the Marlow wingtips from Shoebacca.com.

Same shoe. I believe the name was changed at some point...

what size did you order,my size is gone,shit.

They only have 10D. I normally wear a 10.5D but it seems the Darlton and Marlowe run a little larger according to all the posts I've read. Good luck!
post #28 of 75
Can someone explain the difference between the Darlton, Marlowe and the Ash? I know that the Marlowe is a renamed Darlton, but what is the Ash?
post #29 of 75
I usually wear a 10D in everything. However, I have a pair of brand new 10D Darlton plain toe bluchers that I'm hesitant to wear because they're a titch too small. The toe box is just a little tight. If anyone has a new pair of 10.5s I'd gladly swap. I've also owned the wingtips, but the problem I had with those is that the two "sides" when laced almost overlapped which I've never had happen with any other shoes. Anyone else have this issue.

Interesting... I've never heard of the darltons running small. If anything they run like 1/4" size too big.
