I have Meermin shoes in both Rui and Hiro lasts, as well as Alden shoes in Barrie last.My normal size is 10D in US sizing. I would say I am more in between 10DMy experience is that Rui is wider than Hiro. Even though both my Rui (shell LWB) and Hiro (suede chukka) are of the same UK size 9. I probably could have gone down to UK 8.5 for the Rui. Nevertheless, after breaking in, the UK 9 Rui fits quite nicely.My Barrie is 9.5D and they fit nicely.YMMV.
I wonder what the natural brown looks like.
I have a pair of Brogue Ranger, a pair of Blacksmith, a pair of Roughneck, 3 pairs of Beckman.I put on Vibram half sole on my Brogue Ranger. The rest are in the original sole.Blacksmith next to Beckman:
update: after sending in my shoes slightly less than a month ago, the replacement pair got fedex'd overnight to me here in canada. they also included 4 leather coasters and a shoe horn.overall, A+ customer service.
Received the Bourbon Dalton 2nd today from the RDA sales today. Couldn't see any noticeable defect (maybe I am just not that picky ) Replaced the thin lace with a spare pair of Red Wing boot laces. Not sure why it took so long for me to warm up to Daltons. Could have been the thin stock laces.
My own experience:Most shoes I go with 10D UD sizing. Marlow I go with 10D, Barrie 9.5D. No experience with Hampton.
Decided to pull the trigger on a pair of Bourbon Dalton on the last day of the RDA sales today. Sized up to 10.5D from my normal 10D after trying them in store (10D is too narrow and tight.) Additional good news is, I managed to get Shoebank to honor the original RDA sale price of $219. It is to be delivered tomorrow. Here's hoping that there aren't any noticeable blemishes on them.
The 30% + 15% sales are on for 'selected' items: http://www.ralphlauren.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=46280926&[LINK_NAME=MBNEXCLUSIVEACCESS]&ep_rid=M9RUFFP-GC65J-X8EWJL-I5ZB5O-71SH0-v1&ep_mid=1189458&csm=659995711&csc=1189458&csa=658608111&csu=1189474&utm_source=Email&utm_medium=RLE&utm_campaign=fall14
Thanks.So SB provides the leather and RW makes the boots, I gathered?One more question: are the Powells TTS?
Does anyone know the maker of those Powell chukkas? Wolverine, perhaps?
