Thanks. Mostly just brushing with a horsehair brush, but occasionally with neutral Venetian Shoe Cream and a soft cloth.

You guys know more than me on this subject, but with this reasoning, wouldn't medium brown, as opposed to light brown, be the correct choice for dark brown shoes? I guess I don't understand why you would go all the way down to light brown for dark brown shoes.

@ sevenfoldtieguy - are your Marlows darker than mine?

It's interesting how much lighter yours are than the ones on the website:



and for example, here:

How old are yours? Maybe they get lighter over time? If so, perhaps the darker polish is desirable if you wish to keep the dark brown color?


I believe the older version of the RL Marlow were called the Darlton.  They were lighter color brown; very similar to the ravello but maybe a little darker.

Very nice.  You have all the LWBs, correct?  I have a pair of cigars with some #8s on order from Amore, now I'm thinking about adding black, even though I have a black J&M calf bal.

Thank you.  I have all but the whiskey.  Not sure I will pursue it.  I have the J Crew color 8 cap toe boot on the way.  I'm thinking Black Shell PTB will follow shortly.  Afterward, I'm afraid my Alden purchases will be shut down for a while.

Just checked the Box. It shows Marlow. And for indication $ 795 - maybe this helps to figure out the age.

It may be that the earlier Marlow was a lighter color.  Not sure though...

Not a good day to wear these new blue suede plaza boots from J. Gilbert.
Needless to say, no natural light today. These look more purple with the flash than they actually are. In real life these are a gorgeous navy suede. Loving boots on the plaza last more and more.

I must say, that full strap is the only one I've every truly liked. I often find them far too elegant. I'd sport those in a heartbeat.
Nice wingtips too! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
Great post of a couple rare shells!

Nice shoes. The wingtips are on the tremont, correct?

Today I am donning my wingtip bals in color 8. They too are on the tremont.
