When I bought my boots I went up half a size in order to use a cushy insole. I'm starting to think that an unintended consequence of this was a bigger wrinkle at the toe box.... Anyone else have this issue?
They are pretty slim cut - to the tune of a full size smaller than usual. But they are knits and will stretch a bit to your body. I take anywhere from a 38 to a 40 depending on the cut of something. Usually I'm a medium but I go for a large in these and it is a perfect fit (though the sleeves are a bit long, but that's always the case with sweaters). Considering your height and that your chest size isn't a heck of a lot smaller than mine, I think the medium would do you...
 It was late in the day using natural light for the "before pic," but yes, they're rust.  No way am I "flipping" them to some hipster. These boots have only just broken in!
I'm starting to miss the original shade of my Rust 1ks. They have developed their own patina but a few years of Obenauff's and regular wear have darkened them considerably. At this point, they're so easily mistaken for brown.    Can anything be done? Maybe cordovan polish?
I just found a trapper/aviator hat I liked at Needless Markups and traced it back to the source, a company in Canada called Crown Cap: http://crowncap.com/   I bought a different (better than at NM and cheaper on the site) shearling hat, which is on the way. Can't speak to the quality just yet but they seem to have an excellent cost:quality ratio.   I am so sick of gloves that only last a season. Anyone have a line on good leather gloves that can still operate a touch...
I'd go for a medium probably
Bet trini loves that Beemer.
^ something like that I could only see in navy. Or triple oatmeal...
