they call this a 'cuban heel.' is this just an australian moniker, or something ideosyncratic to r.m.williams, or is that an industry standard name? nice selection of boots there.
Yup, that's a Cuban heel. It is, in fact, a style of heel.

I would love to buy a good chelsea boot but cannot find any in a Narrow (B) width. I have tried off and on for years, the only ones I have seen are from ET Wright, I did try them but the fit was not good for me...I don't really want to go custom made for something like this, any leads?

I also need a narrow boot (not sure of exact width). The Comfort Craftsman I tried on at RM Williams in NYC was too wide, and only came in a standard width. RMW does offer some models (I believe the Gardner and regular Craftsman) in a narrower fit, which I believe is called an 'F' width. Nicee boots....

I am a big fan of the Chelsea boot. I believe it's a traditional shoe which has been around for many years in London. Easy to put on and take off. Easy to shine. Can dress up or down. I've got a pair of RMWilliams I wear with jeans a lot. Also a C&J which looks good with a slim trouser.

I would get a pair from RM Williams but that marc dude (the other one, the one who eats sprouts for ESP) said that their quality has really declined since the company changed owners.

You're taking advice from a guy who drinks his own urine? The RMW with the chisel-ish toe is quite nice and comes close to C&J in terms of quality, I'd say. They also offer a really nice whole-cut Chelsea which is on my shopping list.
