actually on bootsonline I see:

** I don't actually like the RMW Claret colour, whereas I think the Chestnut is very handsome and versatile. Another option is Whiskey. It's an awesome colour if you're looking for something lighter than the Chestnut.

AFAIK, Comfort Craftsman = Blaxland + extra in-sole + chunky. Otherwise, they're the same. I have the Comfort Craftsman, and I regret it. I will get the Blaxland for my next pair of wet weather boots.

Also, get yourself some trees. I use the Woodlore/Epic trees that have done the rounds here on SF recently. They work great.

Thanks,

Stuart

thanks again. I wrote ABH re: the difference between the Craftsman and the Blaxland, and they told me:

Quote:
THE BLAXLAND & THE COMFORT CRAFTSMAN BOOTS ARE THE SAME BOOTS, THE ONLY

DIFFERENCE IS THE COMFORT HAVE THE SUPERIOR CUSHIONED INNER SOLE.

so I'm not sure about the chunky thing?

also, I have settled on Chestnut, but now I'm not sure if I should go with Kangaroo or Yearling. It seems like the Kangaroo "wrinkles" easier and looks "granier"...and I can't figure out what the pro's are? what's the reason I should spend more on these? (I am willing to, I just can't quite figure out the pros/cons)

I also think I am going to go with the Storm Welt

The oil may make the leather more likely to attract dust, but since these will winter boots, the extra water proofing makes it worth it to me.

Sorry to be annoying but, can someone either show / describe the difference in price from purchasing in NYC or ordering from Australia? I know it's in this thread somewhere but I can't find it. If it's not that much of a difference I'll just get it from the NYC store (unless it's that big of a difference). I hate waiting...

Yearling Comfort Craftsman boots in NYC cost $400 (plus tax I think), shipped from AU they will cost just under $300

yeah it really attracts dust but that stuff is the bomb! i dont use polish, just the conditioned. when the boots are 20 years old they will be as soft as vicuna!

There's really that much of a difference in the price? Any idea how long the shipping takes and who are people ordering through again?

Nice stuff, W. Who is responsible for boot care in your family? Watching the Grand Final live on TV here in Sweden. Pies didn't make it. Go Cats! Cheers

I seem to recall that a storm welt wasn't available on the Comfort Craftsman. I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong, though.

I have tried to get some information on MTO boots from Steve at Nungar but haven't heard back from him in 2 weeks.

I've just received my first pair of RMW a few days ago, and I'm already browsing bootsonline planning to order another pair.

My wallet hates you, Styleforum.

anybody want to comment on the pros/cons of kangaroo vs yearling in comfort craftsman?

(used solely in social/business casual wear, and also for a northern winter if that matters)

also, should I size up half a width in comfort craftsman vs regular craftsman?

Know the feeling very, very well. They're addictive. Started my Saturday afternoon off by cleaning and polishing the three pair I used last week. Just like you, I ended up browsing Bootsonline, planning, planning............
