Interesting article about RMW's history and the recent LVMH sale and refresh. Might be of interest to some of the regular readers of this thread...http://www.afr.com/brand/afr-magazine/rm-williams-sets-out-to-sell-its-australian-story-to-the-world-20160214-gmu1ih [[SPOILER]]
For sale, my pair of mid-brown (snuff) suede RMW Goodyear-welted Kingsvale chukkas. Truly a great looking pair of boots for summer and winter, but I've come to the sad conclusion that chukka boots are not suited to me due to my dodgy ankle... So my loss is your gain. The Kingsvale is a discontinued style so you won't see these anywhere, probably ever again. Even rarer is this MTO makeup in RMW's buttery mid-brown suede. Crafted on the famous RM Williams chisel toe last,...
He said "NOT a complete prat".That's me out boys, over to you.
Wine in those days was actually pretty average - or so fxh tells me.
Plenty of places you can get a good sit down lunch for less than $10. Often less than $8... or about 20 minutes busking in the Central pedestrian tunnel.
What, you don't like Asian food?
Compare these to the Stockman model -
I don't think they say "made in Australia" - or at least they shouldn't, but you have a pair of the boots so I'll defer to you. If they do say made in Oz then that's misleading under the consumer law here... I see that the overseas made models still say "5 Percy St Prospect South Australia" but not explicitly "made in Australia" - which is just as confusing.Some of the online sellers still have the stockmans for sale - whoever was after the jodhpurs could do worse than...
The Stockmans are the old made in Oz, MTO line. The new jodhpurs are made in Romania and cost $200 more than the Stockmans used to...Basically if it doesn't say "Made in Australia" on the back boot tag, it's made overseas now.
I don't think they are up to the same quality as the made in Oz ones personally - they seem a lighter construction (maybe blake possibly and not goodyear) and the leather is a bit more plasticy. Look like a pair of boots you'd find in Zara to be honest.
