Anyone in Australia interested in buying a pair of NEW Dayton Service Boots in Nubuck?

Here's the boot
http://www.styleforum.net/t/158840/whats-the-appeal-of-the-wings-horns-x-dayton-service-boots/1300_50#post_4837378

They are marked size US 8.5 but it will fit someone who is around size US 9.5

They are new and never worn outside of the house. Also comes with the toppy.

Selling at a loss for $350 (shipped to anywhere in Australia), if you were to get it now it will cost just under $500 shipped to Australia

I got these for just under $400 shipped (during the$100 off sale) and had to wait for over 6 months!


Also listing on Ebay RRL Jeans and Rag & Bone Chinos

Need all these gone as I need money for my big Europe trip in February.

Kickstart, thanks for the pictures man! The Chamberlains do look very nice. My concern is that my pant leg openings are so narrow that an elongated last such as the 11028 could appear too long. Nevertheless, beautiful shoes. I'm on my iPhone so the pics are grainy, but is the right shoe cap toe stitching somewhat crooked?

Just checked - the toe cap is fine in real life smile.gif Must be the photo?

As for being too elongated. I don't think so. I'm 6ft 1 so I feel that it all looks in proportion...but i don't have super slim leg openings because my legs are very large and I don't rock the super slim suit trouser look (I need to stop training legs...).

I could do with some leg training, particularly calves, as my legs are actually somewhat carrot shaped. I have ankles skinnier than some girls.

My solution so far has been to taper all pants so they're not too voluminous from the knee down, but more gym visits could be an option.

I think I'll put an order for the Chamberlain's once stock levels are replenished.

My quads are 59cm each (23inches) and my waist fits 32inch pants....as you can imagine it makes buying pants quite frustrating. My waist fits but ass and quads don't.

To any of those reading this...is there anyone in Sydney who can do made-to-measure jeans? I want to replicate my APC New Standards with a bigger thigh lol.

Also - with the Chamberlains, just FYI, by the time stock is replenished they will have stock of the matching belt too which might be good for you (I'm stilling waiting for the stock of mine).

FWIW, I wear a 9E in the 348, but would opt for an 8.5F in the 341 last (Sydney loafer), not enough width in the 8.5E and the 9E is too long. As with any non-cordovan loafer, a moderately snug fit is ideal because there will be stretching and moulding as you wear them in.


Thank you Brownman, I probably should do that at some point, though I really should not be thinking about these before the New Year.

Does Herringbone stock a wide range of sizes in these or is it possible to tell from other shoes in the same last? My impression was they needed to be ordered in. I usually take a 10 UK, very occasionally a 9.5 UK. I do not really want someone to order them in for me to try when I am not 100% sure I want them (and then feel bad if I did not buy them), also the saving buying from UK could be about $150 (though not worth if it not sure of size).

Thank you for reply....just not sure I should tempt myself further yet...my clothing budget already much larger that is should be at the moment (am sure a few others here know the feeling..)

By the way Mr Socks, I recall you were asking about somewhere to get some work done on a Kilt? I happened to walk past a place called "Andersons Kilt Hire and Sales" on Bank Street in South Melbourne on the weekend - could be what you're after?

So I think Summer might finally be here in Melbourne, and I'm thinking about what to wear on the hottest days. Does anyone know of an online MTM shirt business with a good range of cotton/linen fabrics? Or would anyone care to share any wisdom on linen or linen blend shirting? I don't think I've ever owned any linen...

(I decided to upload a photo of my Cheaney Leadenhall's too, seeing as they are a different style on exactly the same last).
Hope this helps whoever was looking for captoes!
197
Brown ones are the Herring Chamberlain's and black ones are the Cheaney's.

Good classic shoe.

My order from Epaulet arrived today and I can't wait to get home and try the stuff on. I went with some japanese twill khaki chinos and a red chambray shirt. Quality looks great so now it's all about the fit.

edit : Shipping was standard slowass USPS but the packing job they did is great. Each garment in it's own soft cardboard box inside an outer hard box for protection during postage.

Summer in Melbourne? WTF its winter again in Canberra. I tried to get some linen trousers here last week to no avail. If you want off the rack linen shirts you could try sportscraft the ones I saw on the weekend were nice, good range of colours but slim fit. I have a couple I brought a few years back which I still wear, back when their sizes actually represented some system of reality. Also I have a couple PRL linen shirts I have owed for years which are comfortable and still in good condition, that is if we ever have a summer to wear linen again. But I would wait for the DJ's Xmas sale before buying them.

@Geoffrey: what's with trying to buy stuff locally in Australia? I've given up smile.gif Walked around the men's floor of Myer on Saturday--what a load of wildly overpriced rubbish.

I think i still believe in the idea of instant gratification but sadly it ends up as self flagellation.baldy[1].gif

Depending on his workload, a guy named Mikhail Zenon could help you out. I send my denim alterations interstate to him - he's a real credit to Australia's denim industry IMO.

If more thigh room is what you need and you're already satisfied with the APC NS denim, then opt for the Rescue cut and either wear them as is, a fuller fitting jean, or have them tapered.

Re: the belt, no biggie as I tend not to wear one.
