    Any interest in a 9D swap for my cigar LWB? I don't wear 'em enough and have a couple of other cigars so I'm looking for something in #8. Leffot LWB with the antique edge or the SFxLS Shortwing maybe...pm me with offers.

    I have the modified captoe boot and right now it is my go to "dress boot" for when I'm in a suit and tie and feel like/need boots.

    Anyone know anything about the Crockett and Jones, Ralph Lauren Marlowe wingtip brown shell cordovan? Does it fit true to size? How does it compare to the Alden cigar shell LWB? Which do you prefer? Thanks...

    Perhaps it would make more sense to try this thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/268417/...arlton-gifford-garran-lindrick-mccallum-rhett

    But to give an Alden perspective, I got the same size in the Marlowe/Darlton wingtip as a Barrie last shoe.
    It is a slightly tighter fit on me than the Barrie. YMMV.

    They age nicely.

    If I wear 10D in the Barrie, should I go with 10.5D in the Marlowe? BTW, awesome looking shoes!

    I wear a 10.5D Barrie and went with a 10.5D in the Marlowe.
    I can imagine another persom might want to go up a half size for the Marlowes.

    I imagine you're asking because of the current 25% off at RL. Order both sizes you think might fit and return the other.
    Returns are free if you do it online.

    Does anyone know what size I should order of the J. Crew brogue cap toe boot? (They are on the Barie last)
    I wear a size 10D in normal shoes but my Alden Roy boots, I wear a 9.5 (on the Trubalance last fits).
    Thanks in advance! Steve

    Go 9.5.
    Most size Barrie and Trubalance the same.

    Not much is known about this boot yet. I just found out today that I was able to get in that pre-order, along with the WTB in #4. When I called Ed about this boot he said it was barrie lasted, 360-degree reverse welt, plain captoe, double leather sole.
