Don't worry, they're all wearing them now.
Hi guys, new here, and new to RMs.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the "Signature Craftsman".
I was just thinking about this- does anyone have a pair of the Craftsman in calf leather with the screwed sole, basically a "Forum Special" but on the Craftsman toe shape?
I was thinking it would look good, especially if they round off the sole to follow the toe profile- which actually looks more rounded without the protruding sole squared off...
Post up pics maybe??
With such detailed measurements, you could always send them in to RM Williams and they'll get the right boot for you.
If you check out the made-to-order section of the catalogue, it asks for a trace of your foot as well as the measurements at the 'joint', 'lower instep', 'instep' and 'heel'.
I think the sleekest last on a chisel toe would be the craftsman with a nailed leather sole. Can't remember the exact last number for the craftsman though sorry.
Has anyone ever had the size of a boot altered when resoling? I have 2 pairs in 8.5G and they are a very close fit. I thought they were perfect for a few months but when worn all day my toes get a bit squashed. I have also noticed since stretching there is excess room in the width which demonstrates itself with slight bulging of the leather below the ankle along the foot. I got them both from the RM shop and measured with the sales person but I think they are a tad short and a bit wide.
I can persevere with them until resole time but look forward to having a better fit...
When I get a resole I am going to ask them to turn them into a 9F. Anyone done this before?
I've finally gotten my Macs, and while there seems to be a lot of creasing, I am enjoying them. However, I'm looking to use them when there is light rain. I have obenaufs heavy duty lp, but then the boots will be forever dulled. Does anyone use any sort of waterproofer that can take a shine. Montana pitch, perhaps?
