Second that call. Take care of these, they have character.
The boots I'd buy today, both colors.

RM Williams boots have so much versatility.

I recommend the the Tan (which is lighter than shown here)
And then the dark brown or veal (although the veal is much nicer, it's not as durable)

Where did you get the De Tomasso?

If they ship to Australia, Joseph Banks has pretty good shoe trees, afaik, they are exactly the same as AE ones.

Alot of people have been asking about these shoes.

If you do a search you might be able to find them. They do have an internet site which also has an english translation.

http://www.detommaso.it/

On the website i couldnt find the particular model of the whole cut I purchased.

The two models I purchased are derivatives of other models. On the inside they said made "exclusively to xile." Xile was the shop I purchased them from.

My shoes came with a small brochure which listed the following cities, Amsterdam, Athens, Berlin, Cosenza, Milan, Monaco, Naples, New York, Palermo, and Tokyo. So I presume they have shops or suppliers in any of those cities, and I assume as I purchased them in Australia that they must have a larger distribution.

The Tan is definitely nice. And I know someone who owns a tan model in veal. And that is a really nice shoe.

I think I will definitely get the shoe trees for the RMS

I find that my RM Williams crease regardless of the trees I use; it seems to be due to either the cut of the toe or the leather itself (I also have the cheaper yearling leather since these are the workhorse shoes of my collection). That said, they are great boots.

I'm a convert to shoe trees. Although the nicest I've seen, at US$40 per pair, these are also the priciest. About a yr ago I got into the habit of ordering 2 pair every month... until I had enough for all 30 pair of shoes.
