    Besides the peeling insole, my lindricks have 2 very different vamps. My left side is lighter in color and glows after a buffing. My right boot has a much darker shade on the vamp and a very dry, dull look to it. I've tried reno and different saphir polishes to even out the colors and get them to shine up. Not much success in either issue. I'm sure over a few years they will look completely different from what they look like now so I've given up trying to make them match.

    At least you have one shoe that glows...

    I've got a pair of Lindricks and Marlow loafers. None glowed even after lots of and lots of shine effort. Just recently (at about 20 layers) -one- of my marlows is exhibiting some good looking light gloss (which I'm now not sure I want on my loafer :facepalm:) while my lindricks, at about a dozen plus layers, are only now showing even a rudminetary shine (which I do want to sparkle a bit!).

    As noted by some others previously, this is in comparison to my Alden shell which shine up great with only 5 or 8 layers. By comparison, these C&J babies take a lot more elbow grease.

    ps - I've recently switched from saphir cream to the wax and see much better results on the C&J. I've even taken to my top layers (and going forward) being totally neutral wax to try and get some shine without any color muting. Still not good enough for glamor shots, but getting there :slayer:

    Christ those look nice. I can't stop checking this thread for the sake of these boots. Chino's look fantastic as well, are they the RRL Officer?

    I have contacted Customer Service and this is the response:

    "We are contacting you regarding your enquiry to confirm the different between the fits offered on our RalphLauren.com and RalphLauren.co.uk websites. Our handsome Marlow Penny Loafer # 4078471 is offered in a US E fitting on RalphLauren.co.uk which is a different size compared to the D fitting offered on our US website.
    A US9E is therefore wider than a US9 D, and our London Bond Street store have confirmed that they offer E fits in Men’s footwear.

    All our websites have US sizes, however in footwear we may choose to offer a different fit compared to what they sell in the US. This is possible as we make footwear in more that one fit."

    Egads, I may have to start buying from the UK site. This would probably allow me to size down in the tassels.

    Edit - looks like they don't ship to the US.

    Just got my PTBs today, courtesy of forex. Sadly, they are a half a size too big for me. I have the wingtips in 10.5 and got the same size in the PTBs.

    Anyone interested in a NIB PTBs in 10.5, PM me
