For my next RMW I want something less slanted but not too round either. The B543 craftsman toe kind of looks like this: right shoe --> |\\ ... almost like a right triangle-- though I'm used to it now and seems less and less so the more I wear it... weird.

I'm going to try on a pair of Queesnlander's this week, anything particular you want to know? I can tell you they're a very WIDE boot, think 4E, which is why I'm trying them on.

weird.. in the catalogue it looks narrow.. I'm looking for a more slender shape.. not too pointy / triangular or round

are the queenslander also on the elastic sided?

Well, the boots I've sent off are a kind of experiment. As I explained above, they'll relast them to the correct size (12H) that they should have been. The next step will be to replace the 'comfort' innards with a screwed leather sole. I'll hold off on any comment, until they're safely back in my hands (feet). I will post pics. Lear

The full line-up - Dress Boots in the front - Cas/semi casual boots in the back I was surprised how close the browns are. I'm sure when I was in London Store the Chestnut Buckle Boot looked very different to the Chestnut Craftsman

Not an RM Williams boot..., but I needed to buy something dress down ... think jeans, t-shirt and these fit the bill.

I would be interested to hear tips on how to make the bull leather darker

They look like Ian Harold boots. Do you live in Melbourne? Why not go out to their factory and ask them or ring them up?

Quick question on sizing help. What size does AE 5 Last (Park Ave/ Strand) in US11E translate to for Craftsman and Macquarie?
