    What is the cheapest place to buy R.M. Williams? I'm a stone's throw from the Manhattan store, but they charge upwards of 400 for yearling. I'm sure there's a website that offers great deals. Forgive me if this has been discussed - I consulted the official thread, but it is quite large and much of what is said regarding prices may be dated. Thanks!

    Please show some courtesy towards our fellow forum member. He wishes to know the best place to purchase the boots and asked politely for advice.

    I would warmly recommend the following site:

    I ordered my RM Williams Comfort Craftsman from Aussie Bush Hats and had a good experience. www.aussiebushhats.com.au/

    I bought mine from Australian Fair in San Francisco when I was on vacation. Small store, but I had a good experience and they gave me 10% off too. They carry yearling, and also have swatches of the 10-20 other custom orders you can place with them if you don't mind waiting 3-5 months.

    Ok, my apologies, but in my defense, that search pulled up both recommended sites at the top of the page.

    http://www.nungar.com.au is the cheapest, thats where i bought mine. even less than bootsonline.


    From what I can tell the cheapest go in the order of:

    1. Nungar
    2. AussieBushHats
    3. Bootsonline.


    I was tempted to order from nungar but lately I have been hearing that people have had problems with the service (i.e. prompt responses to inquiries and et.)

    I've heard great things about bootsoline, but its the most expensive (I'm buying Macquaries).

    I think I'm going to order from Aussieboots given this.

    Steve who runs nungar is primarialy a farmer and that takes up most of his time. the clothing thing is a side project. I guess if you want to save a little more it requires a little bit more paitence. thems the breaks i guess.

    I've gone with bootsonline in the past, and would again, b/c for Craftsman and CC it's only a few more dollars and the service (both pre and post purchase) is much better

    Well, I'm on to my sixth pair. I wear them every single day. I have work boots, black and chestnut kangaroo riding boots... LOL, not for riding kangaroos! :) RM Williams just put their recommended retail price up to $495. I buy mine from http://www.nungar.com.au/catalog. They sell them for $365.00 plus well priced postage, I think around $15 to anywhere in Australia. I've heard that they will post worldwide, too.
    I've just looked up their direct link to RM Williams boots. It is http://www.nungar.com.au/catalog/index.php/cPath/48_415.
    Nungar's pricing is awesome and they are good to deal with. Check them out.
