RM's are office-appropriate, thankfully. However, they're not the only chelseas on the market (I believe EG's and Carminas to be much sleeker, but have never owned a pair). In summary, I believe RM's to be a versatile value chelsea which can be worn in context here in Australia.

There's also Baxter Boots, another Aussie company making chelseas, which are excellent quality as well.

Nice, but are they your actual shoes or photos from the manufacturers?

If they are yours, nice photos too!

Absolutely nothing wrong. But exchange rate is shitty now. Cheapest place to get is UK, then Paris. You will get jolly rogered if you buy in HK.

My favourite jeans are starting to wear heavily at the crotch, and the denim is paper thin there. I'd like to have them repaired and recall someone (TheBrownMan perhaps) saying that they have used a shop for a similar job with very pleasing results. Anyone able to provide some suggestions?

Thanks

Pretty much all tailors and seamstress can fix it up, they have pre-made denim patches and just sew them on. And my seamstress said this is very common for us guys. shog[1].gif

Clark's DBs are very wide fitting and roomy (don't know what's up with the website?) IMO some tend to size down anywhere from a half to full size. There is a thread dedicated to them somewhere on here, your best going through the first couple pages of it smile.gif

Thats a nice job wurger.
Any good tailor can also insert in any pair of trousers a "crotch saddle" - Made of lining material - its a bit slippery and shiny so it doesn't catch/rub so much as well as protecting.

No reason why you couldn't have one on jeans - although it does seem a bit of overkill when I see jeans as (should) being cheap practical throwaway things that wear out - or in. But I do realise some people spend as much on jeans as on bespoke dress trousers. But I guess they save money by not wearing socks.
