Came across these in a random google search. Love the colour and I might even like the boot. Do they make the Craftsman in this finish as well?
Is there currently a consensus on the difference between the Signature Craftsmen and standard Craftsmen on the B543 in veal with the soft chisel toe? In store, the welt was closer to the sole edge, and the last seemed more shaped around the arch or more bevelled on the signature, and of course the plate on the waist. They said the signature has a different last. It also appears that signature's can't be ordered with any modifications.
Does anybody have an example of a B530 in a H width on the screw sole? Sator's original post mentions the B529 is available in a H fit, but I was told in store that wasn't possible (or at least that the B555 Macquarie wasn't available in H).
Lastly, does the toe shape entirely determine the last, including the fit around the heel and arch? Or will the last change when I specify a flat heel?
I`m a UK 8.5 in Crockett and Jones and Gaziano and Girling - but fit into a 9.5 F R&M. I though they were UK similar, but thats what I`ve found. It may be that I`m a different UK boot size, but can't say.
Anyone know if these are the chisel toe B543 last in yearling leather?
I've read over 20 pages and the sizing is a bit confusing. Did the forum come to a consensus for sizing for ordering online?
I wear a 7.5D on Alden barrie last. Based on some of the early post, my size would be 7G using AE as a reference but it seemed inconsistent by some posters. Can someone help me out on sizing using the barrie last?
Yes, they are moving. Last time I checked new store opening in the fall.
I'd be very interested to see the result as I'm thinking of doing the same myself. How long left to wait?
