No half sizes so cannot take the risk.
No camera to hand, I'm sorry. But there's really no need - nothing to see. Four years on I wore mine today and there is absolutely no sign of where the flag was. The tiny holes disappeared very soon after removing the flag.
I have several pairs. Mainly leather / suede boots. I think they look just as good as the two-toned or multi-coloured shoes that most people seem to wear.
Gordon Scott was a (long gone) shoe shop. CandJ always outrank Loake.
There's an article about them in tne current (No. 80) edition of The Chap: "Broughton Boots: the resurrection of this iconic British working footwear brand". Not online though.
I have a similar problem. I go for a longer shirt length to show the cuff, and an arm band to shorten the longer sleeve.
I meant in the sense that the leather and suede combination seems today rather 'fancy', while Soviet dress in the 1920s one imagines was strictly utilitarian. I wonder who would have worn boots like these in 1920s Russia.
It's interesting that a design like this was thought appropriate for the comrades in 1926!
Can you say more about this boot please? Does Russian mean Soviet? Is it some kind of military design?
