    The Marlow is not as dark as Alden's cigar and I find the fit, at least for me, comparable to the Barrie last, perhaps with a slight narrowness. It's a nice shoe...

    Was thinking to grab unlined suede dover in tan on Barrie last but I want to see if I can find same shoes on Laydon last. What are my chances or should I just go with Barrie..?

    Thanks for the fit and color comparison. Been thinking about adding the Marlow to the collection. Mediahound, aka Phototristan, did a good review on YouTube that piqued my interest.

    BTW, does Phototristan have a SF account? He's got a pretty serious collection and I think he provides valuable commentary.

    Also, I'm still worried about Uncle Mac. I haven't seen any activity in 3 weeks. Considering the ease of posting with a smartphone, and for a guy who posts regularly, I'm a little worried by his lack of activity. Does anyone know him more personally?

    Yes, I've tried to change my username, but I don't know who to message to do that.

    I do not claim to know Mac "personally" but I believe that he is just away for this time; he should be back soon enough.

    I am sure he will appreciate the concern.

    I didnt consider that my foot would settle. The fit was not so tight that i couldnt keep the shoe on. I am just concerned about spending so much for a pair of shoes then two weeks of wearing them they become a problem. It happened on my past 2 pair of shoes. They were fine in the store but after about month i couldnt wear them anymore

    To my eye the crepe looks right and good on this boot. It gives it a desert boot feel that's distinctive. I actually just ordered a pair of unlined suede ankle boots on a black crepe sole from Rancourt, with this boot as the inspiration. I really like how this one looks (nice photos and thanks for posting them, btw), but want to branch out a little in my collection. Hopefully the Rancourt version will be a good one.
