srsly dude - I'm on my third martini - don't take my advice.
I've got a pair in calf.
Isn't Darlton now called the Marlow Wingtip? So now there are three Marlows: Plain Tow, Wingtip, and Loafer.
what is the tassel called?
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.
The Lindrick is teh pure sex.
Don't know the tassel.. Just throwing the Marlow Wingtip/Darlton out there - someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Sorry for the threadjack, but can anyone identify these C&J's for Polo?
If no one here knows, try asking in this thread. Someone there will likely know: http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/h...erns-secrets-to-id-the-maker/585#post_5223007
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.
