    Indeed. Which is even more confusing as these are meant to be made by C&J... I guess though that could refer to the leather.

    Anyway, this is reply I received from customer service asking whether this was the same as the US version (after pointing out that the pictures on the webstores for the two items were *exactly* the same):

    Quote: If this is true then there is even less reason to pay more in GBP than in USD for a shoe made with calf rather than cordovan leather....!

    ^^^^ Holy controversy! :puzzled:

    Does that mean the US 'Darlton' is made of calf skin too?

    Nevertheless, I am glad I bought the 'Marlow' :satisfied:

    They used to call the the cordovan wingtip the Darlton as well.
    Looking at my old RL receipt from 2008
    Item: 510010551869
    Description: Darlton Wingtip Shoe,Dk. Brown Cordovan,10.5 D

    They offered it in black calf too. Same price as for cordovan.

    Casual office day, Marlow Tassels with thin running sock just to get them stretched out a bit more. Wife says "those are handsome shoes". I said "yes just like the one's I wore when I met you 30 years ago." They were Alden for Brooks Brothers ... Bro Bro tassel cordo #8 ... standard operating equipment in those days.

    You are probably right. I have wide feet and the D fits me just fine.

    Yes they are just fine for wide feet. Mine are marked 9.5D but my foot is really an 9.5E. No discomfort here.

    Does anyone know definitively which last the Marlow Tassel is on? Is it the 325?
