I was expecting that. The creases are actually quite subtle. I was in a hurry and didn't look very closely before uploading. My feet are curled in the photo thus creasing the shoe. The lighting exaggerated the light and dark areas which didn't help either.
Side note, much less squeaking after a few wears.
Quick phone pic.

Just received a pair of Ralph Lauren Marlow shortwings from Namor - I've casually checked out these amazing shoes (made in England by C&J) at the Ralph Lauren store in SF (which I did unassisted because the sales people were obviously too busy to help me - but I digress...). Never quite appreciated the quality until now. And the price and service you'll get from Roman, well let's just say that both are much, much better than you'll get at RL SF.post #32171 of 1224167/18/12 at 9:29amQuote:Originally Posted by HorseHide

I really am wanting a pair of these...need 8.5 if anyone has some. Did you go same as your Barrie last size?post #32172 of 1224167/18/12 at 9:34ampost #32173 of 1224167/18/12 at 9:37amQuote:Originally Posted by ubiquiti
I bought these back in April thinking they were on the Hampton. They are in fact on the Barrie after doing a comparison with a pair of LWB. The confusion abut them being on Hampton due to TSM's Obscura replica makes sense. BootSpell if you are reading this here's a fit pic I took a long time ago.
I plan to pick up the wingtip version now, since I have a hunch that getting a Ravello wingtip boot in my size would be near impossible with the Ravello shortage.
ubiquiti, thanks for sharing. I see that you're getting rid of them. Is it because the Barrie last doesn't work for you?post #32174 of 1224167/18/12 at 9:38ampost #32175 of 1224167/18/12 at 9:39am
