    Pretty sad I missed out on those boots. They look fantastic. And I like the look of the texture of the fabric on that blazer.

    Is it possible to special order the Carmina make ups in wide sizes? Say, the Sinclair boot.

    I'd also be interested to know this, but for the balmoral boot that's been mentioned.

    I cold wash/hang dry mine and experienced no shrinkage; if you were to dry them i would imagine they would shrink very little in the top block but you would lose at least an inch on the inseam.

    How are people caring for their rivets? Cold wash/hang dry seemed okay for the top block after a few minutes, but from the knee down it stayed stiff and kept a weird shape. I'm thinking of just taking a steamer to them to try and get a more natural drape below the knee like when you first get them, any other suggestions?

    I've been doing exactly that, and I haven't had any noticeable issues. I'd be interested to see the results of using a steamer, though.

    I have intentionally washed and dried my rivets twice. I'd say I've had around an inch or so of shrinkage in the length (still a shade longer than 34, I think, without access to a tape measure). Also go the waist to shrink by about a inch, maybe a little less, which is exactly what I was looking for. I probably won't machine dry them again.
