    I'm looking for a really good pair of brogues, preferably in burgundy, from one of the English makers. Apparently, Grenson have a model called the Marlborough in their Masterpiece lineup, but not a single online seller shows that shoe for sale. Does anyone know where I might find it? The C&J Handgrade brogue, the Clifford, is available only in a light tan. In the Footmaster line, Grenson has the Bath, although not in burgundy (its in a medium reddish-brown that they describe as "chestnut"). If I have to drop down to a bench grade shoe--either in Grenson or C&J--how much drop-off in quality will I notice? Thanks for any suggestions.

    There's a pic of the Marlborough here, but you can't order from this website. Â You might wanna try SolelyShoes, who claim to be able to obtain any current Grenson style for you. Â Haven't dealt with them before though. If the style's been discontinued, Grenson might be willing to do a special order for you, but I remember reading that the price of this is pretty high.
