I shall give a review when I get them. Check out this...
I am a weak, despicable being without character and resolve. All these recent posts about about CC's and Blaxlands. Expounding the Blaxland as being less chunky than the CC, being more true to the leather in and outsole Craftsman. Is it true? Are they right? Gnawing away at me, disturbing my sleep. Finally I succumbed. My children are unfed, the rent is unpaid but at this very moment a pair of Blaxlands are winging their way North from the Antipodes. Cheers from a weak...

The C&J is not a whole-cut. Have you checked the RMW thread: "RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know"? Tons of pics there. Cheers

You can get virtually any combination you want if you go MTO. Download RMW's catalogue from their website and check out...

Anyway, any advice appreciated. Have no experience with C&J but RMW offer a selection of leathers if you want to go down the MTO path. And as you say: their whole-cuts are damn fine boots. Cheers

I have found a used pair on ebay that I like and they look to have life in them before a recrafting. Please give me your thoughts. Despite the fact that leather shoes definitely mould to the wearers' feet and will not be comfortable, the thought of taking...

Have tried my Viccel OTC's. I have always been a little wary of cotton socks but I must say that I like these. Quite sheer, in mercerized cotton, they fit nicely and feel good. Hard to tell that your wearing long ones. I've tested two pairs, both before and after washing. Unfortunately they do slide down over the calf a couple of times during the day. Reported this to Viccel. They suggested that I might have a longer calf than normal and are sending me 5 new pairs of a...
