I believe they have a steel shank and it is loose. Hopefully no one else has this issue.

I haven't experienced that problem... I bought both the Washington and Clifton boots as part of the sale in size 13. I usually wear a 14, but found that the Washington boot ran large enough that 13 worked. The Clifton seems to run a little smaller on me (mostly in length). Thinking of having them stretched - has anyone had any luck having boots stretched?

Is this a jack rabbit Conch is trying to unload for nearly double the $250 retail?

 I actually looked twice to check the size and wife thought the moment I took jacket out of suit bag it would be to small. Since the length is right I wonder if the XL would look sloppy. The leather is actually stiffer then expected and would have been fun breaking in! facepalm.gif

 

 

If anyone gets one in small that's too small on them I'd love to get it! (I usually have the opposite problem with things not being small enough)

I've seen some pretty wild prices in the past, but that's got to take the biscuit! And it's an XXL... Good luck trying to flog that you Jackass!

What were your measurements (see first quote) from then?

I had thought you had the jacket and it fit. A previous version?

Fellas.. I just posted an A-2 jacket in Small on eBay. Obviously I'll hook you guys up.

You must return those for either replacement or a refund. The shank in the sole is loose and wasn't set properly. This will cause the boot to creak and click. The fix is very expensive as the sole must be opened up and the shank seated again. Not worth the time or trouble.

Measurements and pic sent to me by a SA, then passed on to someone who asked.

Thanks. They are already on their way back. Made in USA, kind of disappointing.

This happens all the time now with boots. They use plastic/nylon shanks that don't seat as well as steel so you see a greater amount of creaking boots out there.

FWIW The site states that the boots have a steel shank.

is that on top of the 40%?

Never mind: I think it is.

New question: is that the lowest mark down of the season before hitting the outlet?

Hrmm I've had this happen with my combat boots before but the clicking problem went away on its own and I don't notice anything structurally wrong with them.
