RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know - Page 3

post #31 of 3799
A quick comparison on the pricing of the yearling Craftsman from the three online merchants that have come up in this thread:

Nungar.com.au: $230AUD + $50AUD shipping = $280 AUD or approx. $211 U.S. (Just got an e-mail confirming the shipping.)

Bootsonline.com.au: $275AUD + $50AUD shipping = $325AUD or $245 U.S.

Aussiebushhats.com.au: $240AUD + $36AUD shipping = $276AUD or $208 U.S.

(Thought it might be handy to have the pricing all in one place -- I was having trouble keeping it straight.)

Thanks Doc. I think I will look for the kangaroo leather ones myself.

I've got the catalog pages bookmarked:

Nungar: $240AUD, or $180
Bootsonline: $295AUD, or $222 U.S.
Aussie: $270AUD, or $202 U.S.

Plus the shipping, of course.

Sounds like there will now be two people wearing 38R Corneliani and size 10 RM Williams Craftsman boots

I might also add that buying those same boots directly from RM Williams is $311.77 AUD (or $234.18 USD) plus shipping.

Oh, I realize that, I'm only going to see what size I want to order them in.

Yes, I've been checking the Orvis website periodically in hopes someone returns a size 12D, but without any luck.

Following a request to clarify my over detailed explanation of sizing at AAAC I have updated the sizing section. Please read them carefully and let me know if it is sufficiently clear. Otherwise I will revise it again. Thanks guys.

Considering Ben Silver prices these at $425 before tax or shipping (http://www.bensilver.com/fs_storefro...y=4066&group=1), those are some exceptional prices.

Thank you for your very detailed post. I have been lusting over these for several years. This year I want to get a pair of chestnut Craftsman with the chisled toe (B543). I have a pair of Blundstones that I knock-around in, but the RM Williams have so much more style. Your post gives me the impetus to go ahead.
post #42 of 3799
Orvis still has size 11.5 Craftsman Yearling Chestnut boots in stock for $175 +shipping/tax. You can follow the link I put on the Ankle Boot Porn thread.

Could you all help me. I wear a 10.5 medium wide boot,(American). What size would I order?
Thanks, I want to make sure I order the right size.

Does anyone here wear US 10.5D?

If you get no replies my suggestion would be to go for RMW 9.5G (G=medium width). It is if nothing else safe. Do you own any shoes by Loakes? If not try a pair on at a store eg at Charles Tyrwhitt. Your RMW size is your Loakes UK size (keeping in mind that a Loakes medium width is called 'F"). I have used Loakes as a standard because they run true to UK size and are easy to find. I have used AE as a standard for similar reasons.

If the Loakes feel like they are too wide/narrow then consider going up or down a width in the RMW size.

My post on sizes/widths is probably over-detailed (hence my recent revision), - I know - but I hope this helps.
post #45 of 3799
Just to clarify... if you were to make a comparison, what American or English brand would the RM Williams Chelseas be comparable to solely in terms of construction? AE? C&J handgrade? EG?

I ask because your guide seems to say AE, but other posts seem to say almost EG or Lobb.

Otherwise, kangaroo leather is intriguing.
