Never worn anything other than sneakers. Was thinking of picking these up. Anybody heard of the brand Match Stick, and if so, what's the quality like? Price seems OK ($180 AUD).

Size 9 in black - http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Paul+Smith+Paul+Smith+Kasmin+boots/157184220,default,pd.html - they come up pretty narrow, so you might need to size up on your normal size.
Alternatively if you're near any bricks and mortar higher end department stores it might be worth calling in - Selfridges, House of Frazer, Fenwicks etc. normally stock Paul Smith

Thanks for this but unfortunatly I was after black. I went to a few department stores yesterday and couldn't find my size anywhere - so I guess I'll have to start looking for substitutes satisfied.gif

Just kopped these. Had been looking for something like this for a long time, and finally pulled the trigger, as I hadn't found anything better.

I want to resole my old red wings 8138. How would a vibram commando like the ones on the Jcrew guys look? I wish there was something less construction worker looking... wonder leather resole? ...

How is the quality of the Thompson brand you see on yoox? Was thinking about getting some for work.

I've posted in this thread a lot this past week - but I think I have finally made a decision on what boots to buy. What does everyone think of the following as starter pairs:

http://www.paulsmith.co.uk/shop/paul-smith-mens-shoes-390/paul-smith-shoes-cesar-boot-sfxc-h007-buf-g2/product.html

http://www.asos.com/Red-Wing/Red-Wing-Iron-Ranger-Boots/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1788762&cid=4209&Rf-400=3375&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Brown

I plan to buy more boots in the future, but for now I'm just trying to buy a foundation wardrobe with the money I have. I hope to save and expand my options with more quality items in the future.

Worth shopping around for the PS boots, they're often discounted. IMO they're decent enough quality but a tad over-priced. I don't have a problem with the aesthetics, they look okay - be warned they can come up a tad narrow on typical English feet.

I've got those RW IR - there's a love/hate relationship with the aesthetic on this forum, but they're well made and hardwearing (and at least for my feet very comfortable).

Neither are bad choices if they fit what you'll wear with them.

Thanks for the fast reply.

I'm not sure on the PS boots now then as I do have quite wide feet, I'll keep an eye for them to come on discount. I I find a supplier that returns a sale price, I might pick them up. Thanks for the tip.

I actually like the RW boots, but my only worry was if they would fit in with the clothes I hope to buy. I'm planning to buy fairly simple, masculine pieces and an average look for me will be something like boots, raw denim and a leather jacket - I like a lot of Toj items - so nothing particularly eccentric. I think a pair of simple brown boots like the RW will suit this nicely, do you agree?

does anyone own the common projects officer's derby here? i keep reading that it runs a little bigger than their sneakers but can't figure out whether it's enough to warrant a size down.
