[quote name="gregornz" url=" That's cool that you can swap between the two sizes to tailor your look, but I have to ask; wouldn't it be better to get the 'right' size each time? [/quote] Good point. The only thing is that I've found that a BH is a little looser than the SD although on the same last. Having said that it could depend on the leathers and whether or not there is single sole stitching or double - the double tends to be tighter. Soles too could play a role....
That`s really interesting Gregornz, I`m a 27cm and 24cm ball of foot too, and 10cm across...without socks. Are your measurements without socks, or thin socks? I once ordered a 9.5D but found it too big, sold it, and have 4 pairs in 9D, but I do think a 9.5C could fit me as well. The question then is on the Northwest last, do I go for a 10C?   Those bison and rough out are very very nice!!
Stunning,  bison/roughout?
Use a pen to crease the crease you want....
About the creasing with pens, and not pencils, as the plastic is harder...I have tried them with cordovan with great success.  I believe calf is a little more independent as to where it wants the crease, but use, its a good idea to give guidance on initial wears. The problem though is if there is a lot of room, which is the reason why you want to guide the crease, it can go in its own direction...bit of hit and miss. As I say, due to the properties of cordovan, giving it a...
Thanks for this information. Could I ask if the same size issue works for slip-ons and boots as well? Also, if the TG73 is the snuggest, what out of interest is the roomiest?
Just spent the last 20 minutes reading up the net on oiling or conditioning rough out leather, mainly information on saddles. Saddle rough out is generally oiled (but split opinion here as well). I guess the leather will turn out a bit like the one gregornz posted, protectors (against water) will turn out like the photo above. I guess it depends on personal preference and life style the way you condition or protect, but the end look and feel will be quite different.
Could anyone post photos of their oiled rough outs please? Thanks
Full price minus 30% minus VAT, versus Ex vat minus 30% would be the calculation I`d say
I think if you brush it and keep the dirt off, the chances of cracking are small. But left with dirt, it will soon act like sandpaper. But its really the smooth leathers that will crack in my opinion. They are the ones with the outer finish. May be wrong there though, but haven't had a rough out or suede crack on me. But then, I`m an urban cowboy!
