Hope I don't get flamed for digressing from the main subject of this thread but Wraith, I'm a little confused. Maybe you, being closer to the source and if you have time, can help sort things out? Angie at Henry Baxter was noncommittal about size comparisons between HB and RMW. Secondly she called their top of line model the Henry Baxter, wholecut, one quarter lined. I sent a similar size request to Blue Heeler Boots in Qld. The replied that the Henry Baxter Classic...

Not a question of ignorance. We all have to learn and all of us...
Quote: Originally Posted by Sharpe I guess I just see shiny shoes as being more formal and too dressy for casual wear. But perhaps i'm just wrong. Shiny is one thing, clean and unscuffed is something else. The choice is yours. Go for the RMW CC or maybe a HB Classic (I'm contemplating adding a pair of these to my collection) and you can do no wrong. Cheers
Quote: Originally Posted by Sharpe Looking to buy a pair of RM williams boots. Want something more casual rather than to go with a suit. Tried on some craftsmans in-store. Felt like they were a little too formal looking with jeans. Wanted to try on turnouts but they didnt have them in stock in my size. Would turnouts look more casual? What other good options are there? The Craftsman is definitely the way to go. I wear them everyday. With...

And (just for you)...go the Pies!! Thanks. We'll see on Monday. Pies won. My Saturday afternoon: a bottle of Ozzie red, a jar of conditioner, three pairs of boots that need a work over and Le Tour de France with the climb to Mont Ventoux on the...

Then you're out of luck! RMW makes their boots in Salisbury, a few clicks north of Adelaide SA. Cheers

You would probably be 9.5 in the HB Classic as well, but to make absolutely sure, you can email the lovely people at Baxter Boots direct and they'll help you out. That's what I did and they determined that 10.5 was the size for me...and they were right! Thanks for the info. Mail sent to Goulburn. Cheers

Their Henry Baxter Classic boot is their top of the range, hand made in their Goulburn factory, and is the equivalent of a Williams Craftsman. You can buy them online at Blue Heeler Boots and Boots Australia. Wraith, I've been thinking of getting a pair of HB Classics, to add to my collection. They certainly look good in the pics on the websites. They are of course...
