    Isn't Darlton now called the Marlow Wingtip? So now there are three Marlows: Plain Tow, Wingtip, and Loafer.

    purely guessing, I would say they are gone. there are 4 other boots in this thread that came and went fairly quickly in the last few years, it seems this RL keeps a standard selection of shoes but rotates in new boots often

    ^^ I think the boots are definitely a "one-time" release for each style ... I also haven't seen any other color than the dark brown

    Chukka = McCallum I believe :)[/lquote]

    You are correct, and perhaps for sentimental reasons, I think it's the best of the bunch, also the only one with a Dainite sole. I also own the Garran which I love, briefly owned the Gifford which I was kind of enh about, and never owned the Lindrick although I like its look it's too similar to other boots I own.

    yeah that chukka is great. in order my boot ranking here is

    Lindrick > McCallum > Garran > Westbourne > Gifford

    I briefly owned the Garran but couldn't get a great fit, and found the Gifford a bit clunky. Lindrick is a perfect fit for me which counts for a lot.

    Sorry for the threadjack, but can anyone identify these C&J's for Polo?

    You are probably just in the general RL database now... As NAMOR implied, the best way to get in with RL is to go meet a sales professional in person. Get a business card and buy an item full price. Make periodic visits. You will eventually get access to pre sales for their biannual sales, plus offers for other sales. This gets you the best change to get popular items (like the Marlow) on sale in your size.

    Thanks. I guess there is no hope for me. I don't want to buy something at full retail. :confused:
