They may not have updated the website.

 

Give Nungar a call and have a chat with them.

 

As far as I'm aware, the price of $365 for a pair of boots is still current but I don't know what they have in stock at the moment.

Well I mean it pretty much looks like most other custom clothing places, but I did notice some dust on the floor, a relatively small hanging 'display' of products and undecorated walls. Kinda reminds me of days when I used to live in the attic. I think one of the guys was technically a receptionist however another was referred to as a tailor and apparently handles any alteration request including mine and does it in house.

Nungar Trading Post is selling the kangaroo Craftsman, as well as plenty of other varieties of RMW boots, for $365.

 

They don't seem to require any extra payment for MTO boots, either.

Just curious - is there much difference between kangaroo and yearling leather?

Read in the RMW thread that kangaroo is lighter and stronger, but some people think yearling shines better (though this is disputed).

Yearling is a finer grain and is more formal.

lol, fair guess.

Oddly enough I don't think there was a kebab in sight. May have been some fruit, which everybody would have been too frightened to eat.

I'd be interested in hearing more about it if you're happy to share further info, as it sounds interesting - two of the more colourful characters of the late 20th century in a tent together.

 

Edited to add - Are you the guy with the moustache in the background?
