What difference would that make?Quote:
They are definitely not too big, they are very fitted actually almost tight. I do have small feet 5.5 F (the G was comfortable but leather was loose). I'm sort of deliberately creasing them for the picture.
Surely someone else has had this problem? It doesn't happen with my other foot :( Does it just need to be further broken in?post #4431 of 47053/2/16 at 6:11ampost #4432 of 47053/2/16 at 6:34amQuote:
My pair of rum has way more color variation and looks even lighter outdoors. Based off color alone I would say rum is definitely the more casual color.post #4433 of 47053/2/16 at 3:21pm
Well, I'm on to my sixth pair. I wear them every single day. I have work boots, black and chestnut kangaroo riding boots... LOL, not for riding kangaroos! :) RM Williams just put their recommended retail price up to $495. I buy mine from http://www.nungar.com.au/catalog. They sell them for $365.00 plus well priced postage, I think around $15 to anywhere in Australia. I've heard that they will post worldwide, too.
I've just looked up their direct link to RM Williams boots. It is http://www.nungar.com.au/catalog/index.php/cPath/48_415.
Nungar's pricing is awesome and they are good to deal with. Check them out.post #4434 of 47053/4/16 at 3:57pm
Anybody else notice that lately the chestnut craftsman colour looks lighter with a reddish tinge? comparing it to older ones made over a year ago. I was in store and old models on display look quite different from the one I went to buy and I checked a few. Dont like the new colour, the old chestnut was much darker and had a relatively unique colour.post #4435 of 47053/4/16 at 5:11pmpost #4436 of 47053/8/16 at 2:09amI bought a pair of yearling craftsman a few years back (around 2012) and recently had them sent down to the factory for a resole and relast. When they came back however, it turns out that they had somehow managed to damage the leather and they agreed to replace them with a brand new pair.
What I've noticed though is that the leather on the new pair is considerably softer and more malleable, to the point where they almost seem too big. Is this a change in all new boots or is it just a strange pair?post #4437 of 47053/8/16 at 4:44amQuote:Originally Posted by matt5120

Yep its a lot softer but in a bad way. I feel like quality has really dropped in past year or so.post #4438 of 47053/18/16 at 5:18pm
I popped by the Perth RMW outlet store at Watertown (previously known as Harbourtown) yesterday and the prices have been increased on the factory seconds even. Most pairs in the outlet are priced at $350. This includes leftover large sizes (11-12) or previous season's colours of Craftsman and Comfort Craftsman boots, old stock of French calf boots, unsold MTO boots, and pairs of true factory seconds, which have some sort of defect on them (these boot are marked with a punched hole at the ankle top).
That's a pretty steep increase from $275 a pair at the end of 2015, keeping in line with the price increases on the factory 'firsts'. Just thought I'd keep the thread updated.post #4439 of 47053/24/16 at 7:10pm
Ok, i might be looking to purchase a pair of Comfort Craftsman. I wear size 9d in Alllen Edmond strands. So, looking at the original sizing post from the op of this thread, should i be looking at a size 8F in the Comfort Craftsman, based on this info from the op:
1. Based on the Fit of a Allen Edmonds Park Avenues (Nr 5 Last)
AE PA size minus one and drop down one width (RMWs run wide).
Example for if you wear size 10s in an AE Park Ave:
AE PA size 10EE = RMW size 9H
AE PA size 10E = RMW size 9G (medium)
AE PA size 10D (medium) = RMW size 9F
AE PA size 10C = RMW size 9E
G width is medium width in RMW sizing.
D width is medium width in US sizing.
If you drop down one width and you normally wear AE D width your best width is F width in RMWs.
I wear size 8D in AE PAs so my size in RMW is 7F. This conversion also works for other AE models made on the Nr 5 last.
For US based forum members this is rapidly becoming the method of choice for choosing your RMW size and works best for the veal calf and kangaroo Craftsman. Yearling leather is a bit thicker and less stretchy so you should consider going up a width.post #4440 of 47053/25/16 at 5:27amQuote:LMAO.... dude, you wearing a scarf on your feet. Take them back.
