the RW Iron Rangers now come in black. Check Zappos.

Correct, it's just the color. I wear my black-cherry GT's to work a lot (typically with Khaki and Black pants and a color-matched belt because I'm a spaz about that) and they look fine.

after much deliberation, i'm going for these (Beckman 9010) instead of the GT. zappos doesn't carry them, for some reason...

How big are the hem on your jeans? I had to sell mines since the hem wasn't wide enough so the boots looked like clown shoes for me.

^ That's my main problem. I like Red Wing boots for winter, but I don't know how to wear them.

How do I wear bulkier boots like this without bootcut jeans? How big of a hem looks decent?

I think the Levi's 514's with an 8.5"-9" hem would work well with RW's.

RFX, since I know you have a lot of PS shoes & boots, I figured I'd ask you this: Is it possible to find jeans that would look good with both RW's (probably GT's) and PS Corso's, or would you need totally jeans for the different boots? Would an 8"-8.25" hem be a happy medium?

PS boots aren't a big and bulky as RW's so jeans with smaller hem would actually work much better.
Borrowed from one of PP's pics (I hope he doesn't mind), here he is wearing the Ricards with a <8" hem jeans.

But to answer your question, since the RW's are bulkier than PS boots, I would say jeans with bigger hem would work better.

A better comparison might be the Alden Indy. Here's a pic of my Indy's with my 514's.

I'd recommend a minimum of 8" at the cuff. The skinniest jeans I wore with mine were APC hipsters, which are straight down at 8" from the knee. Cuffed jeans will ease the transition from the leg to the boot. Also, (shameless plug) see my .sig - if you're a 9 - 9.5D, I can put you in a pair of GTs for a great price.

^Hey Alliswell, did you ever wear your GT's /w khakies /w 8 inch hem? Wondering if it goes? Thinking of grabbing GTs for the office.

Yup - they dress up pretty well with khakis - the ones I prefer have a 8 1/4" hem.

these may go cheap, sadly too big for me: http://cgi.ebay.com/Red-Wing-Shoes-G...#ht_500wt_1182

I stopped by the RW store here in Richmond yesterday & tried on the Iron Rangers & th GTs. I've fallen in love with the IRs and plan on order in black. I really need a pair of black boots and figure for the $250, these will last forever since I most likely only wear them in the fall/winter.

FYI: The guys @ the store said the black IRs are on backorder nationally & they expect to be in stock in 4-6 weeks.

What are the things you look for in a fit of Red Wing boots? If the length is too tight, does that mean I need to move up a size? Is stretching only for the width?
