    Now that I've finished my order, I feel safe posting this: Great deals on some Belstaff boots.

    Any idea what the sizing is like on those? Not sure what my 9.5US would be.

    I ordered a full size down - 10UK. I hope I am right.

    So?


    It looks like the cast of MI3 is outfitted in Belstaff clothing.

    I wish they had a store in America. They have awesome stuff.

    I believe that there is a store in NYC... Besides, all the major models, from the "Hero" to the Trialmasters, are available all throughout NYC and probably the hero model at a Saks near you.

    Hmmmmmm. I'll have to check that out. I looked on Belstaff's website and their was no listing for stores in America. It just said, "Coming Soon".

    I thought I saw them at a menswear clothing trade show in NYC but I don't remember.

    If there is a specific make and model you need, I can ask around for you. I know that Alan Bilzerian carries Belstaff jackets in several models (just got the much harder to find hoodie there on Saturday), and I believe that both Saks and Barney's here also carry it.

    Thanks for the offer. I might take you up on that in a couple of months. I just bought a jacket for summer riding, but I will need one for winter and cooler months. I really just wanted to see them and try them on. I'll check Saks locally.

    I haven't gone into Saks in years. I guess it will give me an excuse.

    ^ I have the same problem as you my friend. My foot was recently measured to be a B width and I always find a problem with the shaft wobbling about my ankle.

    Two questions: Any brands that make certain widths?
    What do you guys think about quality among fashionable motorcyle/engineer boots being made and classic brands like chippewa, frye, wesco, etc.

    If I had a dime for every time a girl asked me that question....

    But it's 11.5cm diameter. You do the math.
