RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know - Page 197

post #2941 of 3784

I ended up ordering a pair of Comfort Craftsmen french veal calf chestnut in 7F. 

 

This was a MTO, so it will take a few weeks until I receive my boots. That I don't mind, though. Anyway, I'm looking forward to see how the composite-sole will affect the "dressyness" of the boots. 

 

Will post pics when I receive them.

 

Cheers

Nice choice - I have two pairs of the Comfort Craftsman boots (black and chestnut) in yearling. I have to say they're very comfortable and I'm sure you'll enjoy yours.

It will look no different to the standard leather sole pair. It will feel no different in wear perhaps only a slight increase in weight, just a slight.

The best feature of the composite sole is water resistance to rain water, where you are at, it will be the best feature of the boot, the other good feature is the composite sole will last longer compared to the leather sole until its due for re soling in time to come.

Thumbs up for choosing the French Veal Calf, its the very best! You have ordered well.

Can anyone confirm whether the shape of the Macquarie and/or other styles has changed in the past year or so?

 

I am keen to pick up a pair of Macquaries in the hope of getting the legendary mix of sleekness and wholecut, but there appears to be a bulgy-ness in the more recent pics in this thread that wasn't in pairs from posts in '08, '09, '10.  Particularly I am referring to the toe-box which may look a bit blobby (albeit with a very critical eye) in pairs seen more recently.  Perhaps they have changed the shape of the plastic toe stiffener?

 

Cheers

Be sure to distinguish Craftsman from Macquarie. 

Chisel toe and Narrow-Medium toe are the two main varying factors between the two products. 

The Craftsman has the chisel toe which has a flat end whereas the Macquarie has a rounded point to the toe. 

Google image Craftsman and Macquarie and you'l see the difference. :)

Thanks.

 

I sure did make that distinction!  The posited variation appears to have been implemented on more than one style in the range.

Yes, they use the Chisel toe for quite a few of their boots, (Stockman, Stock Agent, Lachlan, Henley, ect, ect) Where as the Medium-Narrow toe shape is used on boots like: The Yearling, Tamworth, Macquarie. 

Hope this helps you out mate :)

So can anyone comment on whether there has been a change?

Change in? I work directly across from an R.M Williams Retailer so I'm sure I could follow up on anything you want to know.

Finally received my black Macquarie boots finished in yearling leather after 6 weeks of waiting. Gave them a liberal coat of RM Williams conditioner left on overnight. But after 5 mins of wear today at work, some ugly creases have developed. A lot quicker than my brown craftsmens.

Does leather conditioner make the leather too supple that it promotes creases faster? As the leather now feel looser and not as tight prior to the leather conditioner.

Can you post a pic or two?

Just ordered from nungar. How long does the process take from here. Ordered yesterday and received the email saying shipping price will be determined just before shipping. Nothing has been deducted from my card yet. Replied to the email asking if they did express shipping, no reply

How long does it generally take before they ship/respond. I thought it would be a matter of ordering and bam they ship next working day like any other online shop.

Don't expect a response if you email them.

 

If it's a MTO it will take at least 4 weeks.  

 

I would call if you want to confirm that order has been placed and ask about how long until despatch.
