I pre-orderd a pair of Caspers from Tempo, should arrive in Sept/Oct. Did you try emailing RDT about the Gleaner?
I've reached out to RDT via Instagram and email re sizing and the possibility of a half-size makeup, but haven't heard anything back .

I actually found tempo to be more helpful with sizing and ordering. Not sure if it was because of the language barrier, but they never got back to me about specific styles I was interested in.

I’ve found tempo to be unresponsive to email inquiries

Trying to choose between one of these:

Is the .5 down from brannock sizing for the Lofgren's typically on point? I wear a 9.5D usually and a 9E in Wesco.

Lofgren engineers run .5 above viberg 2030 for me. Natural CXL seems to stretch more so you might be able to get away with same size if length isn't too much an issue

Attractions Lot 444 just came in. Think I snagged the last pair of 9D they had. The grain on these is very noticeable and intense. Unfortunately, there looks to be some kind of weird indentations in one spot but its not too noticeable. Overall, I'm loving them.

The only thing I'll probably have changed is the top strap length which is too short for me to adjust as I like it. I feel the shaft of the boot hit my calf every time I walk in the Attractions which doesn't happen with my Wescos and will take some getting used to.

I had the exact same thing with the shaft of my attractions hitting / rubbing the back of my calfs. Im quite skinny so I have some space in the shaft. After the first 7 to 8 wears however it seems to of lessened as the shaft starts to collapse and break down with the boots themselves breaking in. Unless you know a fantastic cobbler I wouldn't have the top strap changed unless it keeps persisting months in advance.

Ok, I'll probably wait for a while then. Thanks for the info.

Hey y'all, I've been looking at getting a pair of Lofgren combats and donkey punchers. I'm a 8.5D. I've been seeing conflicting sizing info around the web but I think I would need an 8 in the combats, and 7.5 in the punchers. Does this seem correct?

This is mostly true, depends on the shape of your foot and how wide your feet are.

I have one of their jackets which I really like. I have been really wanting to find someone who has tried their boots and ask their thoughts, the blue boots look very nice

i only wear a jacket which is very nice and fits great.
For the boots you can ask Thomas of stufffinegoods. He sells and wears them and his sizing advice was always correct for Trumans, Lofgrens, Clinch.
