It would be, but I'm not really sure how it works.
Instead of the standard UK E width, all 12 members of the GMTO would have to get the US D width. We would have to get in touch with Lauren or Pernilla with an initial make-up (style, last, leather, width, sole), ask them for a price, and then publish that here asking for other members to form a group of 12.
In theory, the U.K. E is essentially a US D already.
The "D" width that the RL Marlow line used is purported to be a U.K. D, and thus narrower than a US D.
Ah, yes, that can of worms. My bad. I meant whatever comes designated from the factory as D width -- my feet tend to swim in the regular E width 325-lasted shoes.
Ah, sorry. The whole width thing gets nutty with C&J.
I'm measured at 10.5E Brannock, but I could manage a US D width probably. Not sure how that translates into C&J widths.
On second thought, I would be okay with the regular UK E width on the 375 last. If that appeals to you, let's get this brown shell wingtip round going!
Excuse the terrible photo but this is the Rocado Whiskey on top of the C&J Whiskeys. It will match and go with it though it isn't a perfect match. As you say - it'll compliment the C&J Whiskey but it is by no means a 1:1 match.
The Tiger Stripe brown will definitely be a darker shade a more versatile with multiple colors of shell.
Do you think the Rocado whiskey belt will darken to approach the color of the C&J shell?
I've found Rocado Shell Cordovan darkens up a touch but not as much as Horween Shell Cordovan.
Count me in.
Has there been blucher make ups on 375? Reading on the C&J site they indicate it's a loafer last. Aside from that I'd be open to it.
Like Repete, I'm looking for a dainite sole.
Thanks! Yeah that's going to be a bit too light. Will probably lean towards the Tiger Stripe.
I'm not sure but I will ask them. Dainite is good for me as well. We could also think about the City sole.
