    I've reached out to Lauren regarding a GMTO of brown shell Marlows.

    Spec will be exactly this shoe. Will update when I hear back re: pricing and timeline. Hoping pricing will be in the $500-$600 range which is much cheaper than the $1000 RL now charges, with discounts not really happening anymore.

    Or the more likely shade of brown:

    Anyone interested in this run, pls reach out. I will likely continue this in the C&J MTO thread.

    Lauren has gotten back to me,

    16 weeks (4 months) to ship

    For EU members (Including VAT) - £590

    For non-EU members (Excluding VAT) - £491.68 / $607 USD


    Given there is no tax on sub-$800 orders entering the US, this is 40% off retail for Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers brown shell C&J wingtip with no tax.

    All further discussion regarding this GMTO will continue in the GMTO thread:

    Finally gave in to the dropping British Pound and ordered the cordovan Cardigan 4 from Pediwear. The website said my size was in stock (UK7) so crossing my fingers.

    I just got a pair recently. Very nice. What was the total price with shipping if you don't mind me asking?

    I have to see what my final credit card charge will be for the exchange rate but conversion at the time of order was around $611 with shipping. I'm not sure if I will get hit with a duty to the US. I was thinking of ordering direct from C&J in the UK or purchasing from SkyValet in the US but this was cheaper (so far).

    That's a great price. There won't be any import duty since these are under $800. They raised the allowance in April. I purchased mine about 5 weeks ago and paid $80 more so you it worked out well for you.

    Kind of a weird question, but does anyone know a good way to clean the Marlow Shell wingtips in dark brown? Mine are super comfy and awesome, but the left shoe has a bit of a white...not haze.. but spots. They are as if there is a water spot or some dirt/stain but they don't come off with brushing or Saphir Reno.

    Im also looking for a good color matching polish, though should I just go for neutral? Thanks!

    Hi Iagsun

    We will check first thing tomorrow for you, but if the website says they are in stock they certainly should be. We did buy a little stock in this style so we have quite a few sizes available. I have been wearing my Cardigans today, it was their first outing this autumn/fall so seeing this thread made me smile - they are wonderful shoes both to wear and to look at.

    We will be in touch!

    Just received these Sydneys. I know the tongue under the strap won't be seen but is this what should be expected of their quality? Surely the finisher could have easily applied some finish under the strap. Does anyone else have the Sydney with this same issue?

    I would hardly call that an issue. I don't think it would be reasonable for the finisher to apply a small around of procuct to that area, attempt to brush/buff it, and still maintain an even finish on the visible area around the strap. Personally, I dont see it as an issue with quality or CJ. Enjoy the wonderful shoes, they look great!

    Someone earlier in this thread mentioned of getting their leather sole converted to Dainite. Seriously? While most would love to convert *to* leather, why would anyone want to remove it for Dainite or rubber? I'm quite nonplussed...
