Two quick questions... 1) If your buddy has really wide feet and orders Tambos (which are not sleek at all, being the extra-wide RM model), is there any point to ordering with brass screwed leather soles over goodyear welted? They won't look refined, right? 2) How do the light colors of RM Williams boots compare? What is the difference between dark tan, tan and rum? Are other colors available and do people like any of the lighter browns more than others?
.
Has anyone bought RM Williams in sandstone? How is it? Does it age like brown leathers?
For the guys who bought boots in kangaroo leather, do you buy in the same width or go one width smaller as recommended at the start of this thread?
Another question... if you have pretty wide feet and are buying RM Willilams more for comfort than for sleekness, would you bother buying black veal calf boots in black for dress boots? Or even try the forum special model at the start of this thread? Or would you just stick to other forum favorites for your dressy shoes?
My buddy bought Tambos and only say "7" under the arch of the foot. I think that's because Tambos come only in one width, which is "X" or extra wide. Does anyone know which RM Williams models come in "X"? I understand there is a Tambo and a Comfort Tambo, which differs because the rest of the boot (not just the sides of the foot) is wider. Do you need a different width for kangaroo skin? Then there's the Queenslander; would the round toe make it fit differently? My...

Thanks, agree with you all!
Does anyone here do contrast color thread on buttons and buttonholes on dress shirts by default? Imagine a medium blue shirt with dark navy blue thread on the buttonholes, and to sew the buttons to contrast against mother of pearl buttons. Or, imagine a blue/white striped shirt with dark blue thread for the button holes and to sew buttons on. I find it very distracting and it seems to be an Asian thing, but does anyone do it? Or should one absolutely forbid one's tailor...
I haven't found a lot of closeup pictures and discussions on this topic and wanted to take a quick poll. I am helping a younger friend (early 30s) with his first tailored blazer. It is intended to be lighter weight, usable as a summer blazer (even in the hot tropics), classic dark navy, single breasted 3 roll 2, relatively formal complete with classic brass buttons but can be dressed down. 1) lining: full, half or quarter? 2) pockets: 3 patch, welt + patch side, welt +...
