I'd say Islander's assessment is correct as far as the front of the boot goes; my EE is comparable in the ball and toe box to some boots I have in D width. The heel is a little wider than a standard D though. Since I have a wide forefoot and narrow heel the EE was my only choice, but it also means the heel is a little loose without an insole (which I wear anyway, so ultimately not a big deal for me).
I just took a couple of quick shots. Snakes pics probably reflect the oiled black boots better than mine, however.and with flash
My oiled blacks arrived today. First impression is that I love the oiled black leather even more than I thought I would (much better than the pebbled black that W&H used imo). I ordered 11EE and I'm a 12 Brannock and they fit maybe a little loose without insoles and a little tight in the vamp with them but good otherwise (I think the vamp will stretch with some wear). But since I have to wear an insole I intended to size them with that in mind. Length wise they're about...
I've had good experiences with both BiG and Schaeffers Garment Hotel (believe the latter was formerly involved with Denim Doctors).

bump for a small price drop before they get returned
I've never been able to tolerate the feeling of wearing a watch (or any sort of bracelet for that matter). My parents bought me many as a child. I would wear them for a day and then they'd end up buried away in a drawer. I've always wanted to carry a pocket watch, however. I wish modern fashion didn't make them so impractical. Maybe some day when I frequently find myself wearing vests and sportcoats.
I'm surprised his came with the Clarks tag. I heard all future Clarks desert boots that Dayton produces would only have a Dayton stamp.
I just picked these up from Tres Bien Shop but they're a little big. They're tagged 30x32 but would ideally fit a true 31 or 32. Rather than go through the hassle of returning them to Sweden I thought I'd first see if anyone might be interested in them. They've only been tried on and tags are still intact. Retail $205 but I got them for about $140 in their current sale. I'm asking $125-->SOLD Measurements using BiG's method. Waist: 16" Front Rise: 10.6" Thigh:...
1 and b (but I'm biased against zip boots).
