    Hope it works out. For others with the same question, my PTBs showed up today, and FWIW, here's a side-by-side comparison of it with the same size 11.5 Alden Barrie PTBs (I plan on selling these, BTW). Not sure how helpful a photo is, but I think you can probably see that it's a bit shorter and narrower (particularly in the heel).

    The Darlton/Marlow looks so much better. I'm sure it fits a human shaped foot better too.

    It works better for my foot at least.

    They need to make a boot version of those plain toe marlows.

    the boot taking the wingtips + the metal eyelets is a pretty sweet hybrid of the 2 shoes

    This pic illustrates exactly why I bought the Lindrick, love the way its framed in the ankle, that narrower curve translates very well into a nice line when worn. Notice how the other 2 are boxier thru the lace area. You can see the result with the shoe on the right very well here: [​IMG]

    I'm liking those black aldens. Are they single or double soled? The jcrew description says single sole, but your's look to be double soled.

    Help! I went in and tried on a pair of Marlows in 11D, and I think they might work. I normally take an 11 EEE: anywhere between 10.5-11.5, but almost invariably a EEE width for US-made shoes or a G fitting for English shoes.

    The thing is, the Marlows were not nearly as tight as I would have expected and were almost doable. I would want to stretch them out a little bit in a couple places, but nothing too major. And a pair of English-made cordovan shoes for $400 ain't bad.

    If I buy the Marlows will I be making a huge mistake?

    I find they run a bit wider than most US sizes although I can't really speak for EEE. I usually wear a 10E in Allen Edmonds and my Marlows are 10D. Just for reference the soles of my AE Park Aves (5 last) in 10E measure 12 5/8" x 4 3/8" and my 10D Marlows are 12 1/2" x 4 1/2" so the Marlows are slightly wider than an AE E width even though they are marked a D width. I'm not sure if that will fit a EEE but I find they fit a E without any problems.
