    Are the Darlton's brown or more of a #8 type color? How are the soles stitched? Thanks.

    I'm unsure on the stitching, but they're definitely a brown color.

    No takers? That's OK. Who wants sumptuous leather gunboats anyway...

    If anyone

    a) gets a Darlton 9D and then
    b) decides they don't like them, PM me.

    the Darlton wingtips have no burgundy about them. They are a medium brown, a little darker than Alden's Cigar. The soles are pure double-leather goodyear welted...

    Thanks. Just called the Chicago store and they have them in my size. Missed the extra 15%, unfortunately.

    Does anyone know when the sale stuff will be further reduced? At some point the stores mark the sale price down another 30 to 40% right?

    I just got confirmation of shipment of my Darltons wingtips, oh yeah [​IMG]

    The brown, if same as the Darton penny loafer, is a gorgeous dark brown, no hint of any burgundy in it like #8, most closest to cigar but not quite. Unique, which is what I like. Made in England by Crockett & Jones, which does a finer finish on little details than Alden. All in all a great deal at almost 50% off retail.

    I notice that the shoe has sold out.

    Any pics of this shoe? Is it the same as the Marlow wingtip?

    You can always try to find a guy who will honour it and have him order the shoe for you.

    I used the 15% kick on Sunday, Wednesday and yesterday. In fact, yesterday the SA told me he was given permission to extend the discount.

    I smell a class action suit; I mean one need only read how nuts we are and how seriously we take this stuff to prove damages. [​IMG]

    Every year, same craziness. [​IMG]

    Anyone else had this experience, that accepting the code after it expired is discretionary?

    whoever missed out on the $354 Polo shell Darltons. I pity all of you.

    this is perhaps the deal of the century.

    a very beautifully shaped shell wingtip blucher, trust me, it is very lovely. the toe shape is not gunboaty at all , a la McClain or 975 Alden.

    just the construction and the meaty hide. the shape and color of the shoe is wonderful.


    i always looked at this shoe whenever i went into rodeo Polo and pondered when this $700+ shoe will ever go on sufficient discount.

    it finally did.

    hopefully for all you unlucky can find it someday on GVH as I dont think RL will ever get this again in stock. let alone $354

    ever again

    Haha shoe is really rubbing it in for those who missed out.

    If it's any consolation, I ordered around 11 am on 11/15 and I'm STILL waiting for my delivery confirmation. It still says "located in stock". Might get canceled.
