btw is this crease in the heel (due to the heel cap, or whatever it's called) pretty much unavoidable if you choose kangaroo leather? I have the same thing on my pair. http://www.styleforum.net/attachment...2&d=1268036828
Are brass-screwed sole more flexible? I have this issue with my Craftsman, when they're resting, the toe-cap area of the shoe is bent upwards and totally deforms the shoe.. Makes it look really ugly and short (or could this be a length issue?) . I guess I really need some boot-trees. My 7F brass-screwed buckle boots finally arrived and they seem to fit fine so far... haven't walked in them outside yet though, trying to decide if they are too narrow. I think the B543...
thx for info LTM. Forum Special buckle boot... this I wanna see. though i'm guessing isn't possible. Is the buckle boot on it's own last? (B653) even though it's identical to B543.. There's nothing about the B653 available combinations in the catalogue.

I wouldn't even wear these... they're too nice lol. Can't believe it's 9 months though.. demand must be crazy
Would be nice if we could just find a RMW shoemaker to answer the sizing questions once and for all. What exactly is the B529 last? Is it a "round toe" or a "narrow medium toe?" I can't find it on any catalogue model... What's the difference between the B529 last and the Macquarie? Quote: hmm., so if my Craftsman 7.5G fit good, for a brass screwed sole variant I need to go to 8.5F ? I think that'd be too big.. What are your feet measurement on...
I wonder how a buckle boot converted to the forum special would look
Woooo! my buckle boots are on their way! It's ony been 4-5 weeks.
