Yea I went with yearling too. If I'd gotten kangaroo I'd have to go down in width definitely. I'm on the wide side of a D width, haha. I was just wondering, since I most likely could fit into a 7F yearling craftsman, would that mean that the 7F stockman would still be the perfect fit? craftsman and stockman are built on the same last right? With length should there be a few centimeters of slip if you hold your shoe in place and try to push your feet forward in...

btw is there a RMW last which doesn't have such a triangular shaped nose? I didn't expect the chisel toe to end in almost a right triangle shape. Is the narrow-medium toe (macquarie) the same? (what I mean by this is the exaggerated slant that goes from the tip of the shoe to where the outer toe or pinky, rests). This is only noticeable when I look down at my feet when I'm standing up; but from any other angle it looks fine. I guess I was expecting the Craftsman...
How do you remove indigo stains from leather shoes?
was so excited to finally get my black craftsman (nailed sole) today... and they fit perfect. I wear size 8D in allen Edmond PA and went with 7G in these. (feet measure 8D on brannock). Should I polish these up first before wearing? I bought the black polish and it says to use in conjunction with RM williams leather conditioner... (leather conditioner = saddle dressing?).
Did anyone attend Inspiration? http://inspirationla.com/ can't believe I didn't hear about it. Can't find anymore info on it either. What were highlights? Were there any good giveaways or deals?

LHT Jins on a 0500 silhouette [Wranglerpro styling as icing on the cake]. that'd be like "eating ice-cream while having sex", an xgf might say. don't you love the untypically less slubby denim + silver details on those Yamatos?! freakin work of art. what are Jins? some Samurai cut?

I totally forgot the RM Williams boots / Craftsman have a higher arch than other shoes, which explains why the ebay measurements could be off if they just measured in a straight line. At this point I don't care anymore, just hoping that it works out. If not I guess it'd be easy to resell them on the forum for what I paid and take a loss of shipping cost. sigh... this never-ending journey to find the perfect shoe (addiction) requires comfortable shoes to walk...
oh sorry, thought you were giving me the typical SF douche response / attitude towards noobies. Sarcasm doesn't translate well on the internet
