    Nope. The RL cordovan shoes we are talking about are made by Crockett and Jones in England, using Horween (USA) Shell Cordovan.

    And we're talking about them because they, for the most part, are a good comparison to Aldens in terms of quality and fit and finish.

    Pretty sure the RL wingtip and PTB are on the same 325 last.

    I've got both and they feel the same to me.

    Robert (sf user dastig) [email protected] has been pretty helpful although I've only dealt with him on the phone and via email..
    He's at the Michigan Ave store. He's an RRL specialist but he's helped me with non RRL stuff.

    i'd still like to see a picture; i have a similar issue.
    i would suggest demanding the shoe be remade by the factory. major inconsistencies of the shell cordovan such as you describe should be caught be qc and sent to shoe mart as seconds.

    You're welcome.
    The Barrie last does work for me but I am a 6.5 D. I am getting rid of them because not only are they slightly big, but I like - but not love them.

    J.Crew's navy suede longwings on a micro sole and natural CXL longwings on a crepe sole are up on their website.

    IMO i'd stick with the j.crew and the roys. I find natural CXL to be a hard color to pair with a lot of outfits...and have it flow.

    Well, all is still good in the world!

    So, Sazon, 103 Yesterday, and I'm in my Brown Chromex Ultimate Jumpers from LS. Granted I was inside at NYHS all day.

    I hope when they post their ravello makeup it has a leather sole. Not a fan of crepe...
