Perhaps others here may not wear them with such, but they're perfectly fine to do so. Times have changed, after all. +1 As I've mentioned before I wear my RMs to everything (well almost - pyjamas and bathers excluded). From faded Levis to board-room suits. The classic Craftsman, the Macquarie, the Blaxland....

Most of all the questions posted here lately about combinations of sizes, soles, leathers, heels and so on are answered in the boot section of RMW's catalogue. Available for browsing or downloading on their website. Cheers

One can wonder if anyone in management at RMW reads this forum. Cheers

Quote: Originally Posted by skeen7908 I recently bought a pair of RMs and I must say they are fantastic. I didnt like the feel (or the look) of the craftsman toebox, so I ended up getting a pair of standard 8G Turnouts, and these fit like a glove. Now I want to order a pair of the forum specials. My question is this: given the 8G turnouts fit so perfectly, what size in the FS would be best? I couldn't find this dealt with anywhere in the thread...

Download RMW's catalogue from their website and immerse yourself in the boot section. There you'll find all the leathers, colours, toe-shapes/lasts, heels and so on. Cheers
