Some Rossi (Rossiters) boots are still made in SA, if not all. The walking boots are great and they still make their ripples.
OK Chef well I am 32-33 waist, 31 inseam and 21 thigh. I tried both the 32 and 33 LE tailored fit. I measured the widest part of the chinos in the thigh, both 12' across lying flat, ie, 24' circumfrence, so they would be too slim for you I would imagine. Perhaps the classic fit 33 would have the extra you need? The leg opening of the LE tailored fit is 8", whereas the ones yuo get in myer, 32 waist and inseam are usually between 9" and 10" I notice.

I like the herringbone chinos fit and quality wise (I own 1 pair), I just don't like the price. Do you know how the above brands compare? I'm very wary when it comes to ordering pants online... I have also recently...
Cheers fxh, thanks for sharing that info. It is the thicker variety I am looking for and I'll be putting them to similar use. How was the fit btw? waist size accurate or 'vanity'?

How would they compare with the RMW for instance? I have been wondering about them but...
One is AE Melrose, the other, I don't have the original box. It is a 10D burgundy monk, the lettering inside reads 10D 10699 2 on one line, then below, 2471 COMB. 4440. I also have a ferragamo Belgrado in 10D. I am afraid I don't know what IIRC means?
I think it just goes to show that it is trial and error with the different makes re: fit and width. FWIIW, I have 3 pair RMW ('cos I am Sth Australian!) all in 9. I have 2 pair of AE both in 10D that fit nicely. I don't own a pair of Blunnies, however, Belligro is right when he says these are 'agricultural'. They are a working mans boot for use on buidling sites, paddocks etc and probably fit with thicker outdoor work/hiking socks in mind. I'll draw your attention to...
I am thinking of a dark unlit cellar packed with refugee children somewhere down Hanson Rd Ponty...the 'cashmere' will be from some old goat shot just outside Pt Pirie.
UK firm Peter Christian were once recommended on this forum for moleskins but I have not tried them myself yet. Looking at the website, they might be squatters!
I suspect he'll be an instant success! Have you got any more like him we could have?
