    I'm plannig on getting some beeswax Clarks, those look amazing. I know it's been asked before but what do you people usually wear on the top with them? I mean colour wise, since I've some sand coloured ones and I've been told that they don't look so good with darker shirts and sweaters (dark blue for example). Are there any pics of people actually wearing the beeswax ones?
    Also I've a question regarding sizing, since I live far away I will try to get them on ebay, and I don't owm many american shoes... only some Jack Purcells that are 11 (US). What size Clarks should I get? Thanks

    I wear my Beeswax DBs with just about every color imaginable. If you look at some of the late fall through winter WAYWT posts, you'll come across a myriad of great examples. These boots are versatile, so wear what yo want and they are bound to look good.

    Thank you. Any ideas on the sizing tho? I've seen that you are suppossed to get 1 size down, but that was in comparison with other boots. My only reference are the purcells or some chucks, so what size should I get? (I'm 11 US in those)
    Thanks in adavance

    Does Clarks make a color similar to these McAllister boots from J.Crew?

    Get an 11.

    Does Clarks make a color similar to these McAllister boots from J.Crew?

    There's two options that I am going to suggest:

    There's the Cola suede which is a UK exclusive but I think Oi Polloi and ASOS both carry them and ship to the US. (I've never ordered anything from Oi Polloi before but I remember someone on this board got hit with customs fees so I'd check into it before ordering from them; I've ordered several things from ASOS and never had an issue)

    There are also the Brown suede that's available everywhere online Zappos, Endless, etc. They have a matching sole which I think is [​IMG] at best

    The Cola suede I think is the best match but is going to cost a bit to get over here. Good luck with whatever you choose.

    this is almost perfect. would be perfect if the sole was black or dark dark brown. might have to settle for this. if anyone knows where we can pick one of these bad boys up, that would be swell.

    camel suede

    They're not Camel Suede. They're lime.

    Camel suede, predictably, is a colour similar to a camel.

    + To the person asking about sizes: DON'T buy your normal shoe size. Go half a size/a full size down. I went half a size, and they fit well.

    the offical color for those brown leather ones a few posts up is 'oily brown'

    that might help with your google searches.

    i have a pair i've been wearing for a few years now.
