Confusion in RL shoes from another thread:

The made in Italy RL shoes (like the Stanton), have Ralph Lauren written in script just like the purple label shoes but have made in Italy rather than England engraved in the sole. To further confuse, the box is purple. It seems RL now distinguishes between the Polo RL shoes, the Ralph Lauren ones (like the better blue label suits) e.g. the Sullivan and the Stanton, and purple label shoes but seem to mark RL shoes the same as purple label and they come in a purple box.

Santoni Humphrey boots, 11.5 with a decent BIN: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-SANTONI-Hump...QQcmdZViewItem They're pretty good chelsea boots if you don't mind softer leather and rubber soles. I had to go up half a size on mine though from my regular 11.5 AE size. AE Andover boots, 12EEE: http://cgi.ebay.com/Allen-Edmonds-Dr...QQcmdZViewItem

So, you think these are stantons rather than bentons?

I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure the shoe in the pic is Benton, not Stanton. Stanton has brogued seams all round, Benton has it just on the toe cap.

True dat. The one pictured are definitely the Benton. But then what's up with the box?

Did someone here win the 9.5s?
post #7401 of 14986
Yep, I did. I can report on it when I get em. I hope they fit.
post #7402 of 14986
And the Stanton has a noticeably smaller toe cap. Those are surely Bentons. Maybe that's not the original box or they now come in a purple box too.

Florshiem Shoes Are these really shell? I thought only imperials were made with shell, could these be corrected leather?

Yes, "HenryBoogers" is a member here and he knows his shell...sometimes to my dismay

Indeed.

Yes they are shell. If anything I'm a little trigger shy in calling some Florsheims shell but these are a great pair of cordovan shoes.

Are the Bentons C&J 337?

Thanks Henry- I think I may have sold these to you. I was selling them as shell but pulled it after someone told me they weren't and relisted them. I may have been a bit naive but I wanted to avoid any problems. Good luck with the sale.

Was that you? I've done the same being trigger shy and selling to Distinctive who went on to reap the rewards. I'll send some good karma your way.
