Now my preorder with Leffot needs to be the Kudu LWB...

Any idea how the sizing of the RL Marlow would be? I don't know how the color would compare to Cigar or other exotic shells...

The Marlow is not as dark as Alden's cigar and I find the fit, at least for me, comparable to the Barrie last, perhaps with a slight narrowness. It's a nice shoe...

Was thinking to grab unlined suede dover in tan on Barrie last but I want to see if I can find same shoes on Laydon last. What are my chances or should I just go with Barrie..?

I got the Black Unlined.  fistbump.gif

Not sure I get the MJ reference, unless you mean moonwalk?  (Sorry, I'm slow)

MJ always wore black penny loafers.

Nice! What sock brands do you blow your scratch on?

Thanks for the fit and color comparison. Been thinking about adding the Marlow to the collection. Mediahound, aka Phototristan, did a good review on YouTube that piqued my interest.

What'd you get?

Edit:  Also, post more pics of those cap-toes for me to drool on?

BTW, does Phototristan have a SF account? He's got a pretty serious collection and I think he provides valuable commentary.

Also, I'm still worried about Uncle Mac. I haven't seen any activity in 3 weeks. Considering the ease of posting with a smartphone, and for a guy who posts regularly, I'm a little worried by his lack of activity. Does anyone know him more personally?

Yes, I've tried to change my username, but I don't know who to message to do that.

I do not claim to know Mac "personally" but I believe that he is just away for this time; he should be back soon enough.

I am sure he will appreciate the concern.

I didnt consider that my foot would settle. The fit was not so tight that i couldnt keep the shoe on. I am just concerned about spending so much for a pair of shoes then two weeks of wearing them they become a problem. It happened on my past 2 pair of shoes. They were fine in the store but after about month i couldnt wear them anymore

side shots:





To my eye the crepe looks right and good on this boot. It gives it a desert boot feel that's distinctive. I actually just ordered a pair of unlined suede ankle boots on a black crepe sole from Rancourt, with this boot as the inspiration. I really like how this one looks (nice photos and thanks for posting them, btw), but want to branch out a little in my collection. Hopefully the Rancourt version will be a good one.

What kind of leather is the uppers on the Jcrew plain toe boot? I asked them and they said they didn't know. I'm guessing calf but I'm not entirely sure.
