    Thanks for the info, it does seem like a good deal :slayer:

    I have a pair of CJ Harvards which are basically the Marlow loafers minus the full strap, can anyone tell me what the UK/US sizing conversion is?

    Great shoes. Perhaps the best looking shell SWB, regardless of maker.

    I saw some mention of the McCallums a few posts back, is that model still being made?

    I had a pair that were unfortunately too small, so would be quite psyched if they brought that one back into production.

    They will probably be back around soon. You can call RL's 800 # and ask if they're on order.

    Auto bump, but can anyone provide me with further confirmation that it is only a half-size difference as someone wrote in the C&J thread? The discount is about to end and I want to ensure the shoes will fit, thanks!

    Wow, those chinos look awesome. Who makes those and what color is that? Looks like something between a burgundy and grape color. Are they garment-dyed?

    All the C&J for Ralph lists both US and UK sizes on the box. But the funny thing is some have a full size difference and some have a half size difference.
    Example: Gianni lists a full size difference and the Frankenmunks (Lincolnshire) lists a half size.
    I personally think they're all a full size different.

    Why don't you just get both sizes and return the one that doesn't fit?

    Thanks, yeah I've been thinking about that but I live outside out of the US and shipping them is somewhat of a hassle. If you know the size conversion they use on the Marlow loafers it'd be much appreciated!

    I just checked the boxes for my marlow loafers and wingtips. They both say they're a half-size difference.

    these are some of my favorite trousers, made by the now defunct label aubin & well. im so pissed i didnt pick up a few more pairs. fit is great and the color can vary from charcoal to deep purple depending on the light. they also used copper buttons that leave a beautiful patina on the points of contact

    I've seen the exact same model of Marlows marked both 1/2 and 1 full size down. Anymore I just order TTs a except for the Tassel. .. Down 1/2. I do believe mostly they are 1 full size down UK. Also, all of them have been marked 42.5 EU, which is my 9.5 US size.

    I like the shade of your Marlows Mike. Do you find them comfortable and are you still breaking them in?

    I agree. If I was a dog I would be humping that.

    Thank you sir.

    I have found that they are much more comfortable now. I have worn them probably around 10 times now and the sole has definitely improved a lot since I first got them. I expect that they will only continue to improve. The sole was very solid at first.
