congrats on your new pair of whites?
Andy, how's the fit of the BHs compared to the SJs?
Well, somewhere a few pages back I posted my crazy sizing stories. To make it short, my BHs are 9 1/2 D and my SJs are 9 1/2 E. I wear a lightweight hiking sock or something about like an athletic sock with the BHs, and the thickest wool socks I can find with the SJs. The wool socks are from Cabela's, and I would say they are at least 1/8" thick when compressed. That doesn't sound too thick, but it effectively makes your foot 1/4" wider and 1/4" taller. I can't even start to fit my foot into the BHs with the wool socks on.
My guess is that a pair of SJs in 9 1/2 D would fit pretty close to the BHs. I told Kyle at Baker's what I wanted to do with the thick socks, and it was his suggestion to go with the E width for the SJs. I asked him several times if he was sure about this, and he assured me it would work. At this point if I had a sizing question, and had an existing pair of White's to base my question on, I would go 100% with what Kyle recommends. He really does do this every day.
I am already planning my next pair of White's. It will be lace-to-toe SJs, 6" height, 9 1/2 D, probably distressed brown. I have no doubt the 9 1/2 D SJs will be fine with light hiking socks.
Cheers man. Appreciate it (and pardon my laziness ) 6" SJs will be fantastic!
Broke down and bought a pair of used dark brown semi-dress boots, my second pair of SDs.
Stock w/Vibram sole and slanted heel. I used to have a pair but it was 1/2 size too large.
Stoked to have a pair coming back to me... such a nice boot.
did you get them off ebay?
+1 were these the ones that were pulled early? Sz 10D I believe
But in all seriousness, he canceled the auction and then I emailed him.
I didn't ask him to pull them.

I ordered my boots Jul. 8th, so I believe I’m in my 8th week…
Dose bakers send an Email before they ship the boots from there shop or do the boots just show up one day on the door step?
I heard bakers makes a one time delivery via horseback and if they miss you they put the boots up on ebay.
Bases covered because passed the paypal protection and credit card protection grace period.
Of course, should have known…
But, do they send an email before they do the horseback delivery?
