Slightly off topic, but considering a pair of Rannoch boots (not quite yet, I’ve just bought a pair of loafers today) and I know a few of you have them. I was wondering about sizing. I’m a 7.5 in 4444 & 4497 6 width, and an 8 in most other things - Trickers, EG, C&J etc, would I be a 7.5 or an 8 in the Rannoch boots, in your experience?
I think Rannoch boots are made by Cheaney for Hoggs of Fife. Nine hole with speed hooks. They are similar to the Pennine but in Zug leather and with hooks instead of holes at the top.

I have the Pennine and they are not very good if you have a high instep. There is insufficient leather in the quarters and they don’t lace up tight. There is a gap with a lot of tongue visible as you move up the boot.The laces supplied are too short anyway but that is an easier issue to address.

I think you are right about supporting small businesses. I have found it interesting to work with Jadd of Jadd shoes. As he makes his shoes from the ground up and each pair to order, he is very accommodating about making changes. For me, he has made the facings wider apart - something I have had problems with for years. With most of my shoes, the facings either meet or try to overlap each other. Also, Jadd uses high quality leather and his sewing and finishing are top notch. A really nice guy and a very skilled one.
Some nice styles on his site. How would you say the overall quality compares to Trickers?. I just got myself a pair of Trickers Aldo chukkas in the sale and the leather is very thick.

I have seen the Aldo's on the Tricker site but not in the flesh. Comparing the two makes on the net, I would say that Jadd's shoes hold up well against the Aldo's in this particular style. He always looks for thick leathers and his work is pretty much faultless. If I was to name my three favourite shoes in my collection it would be my Bourton Kudu's and two pairs of my Jadd desert/chukka boots! I was tempted by the Aldo's, though and I think you have got yourself some great shoes.

I take the same size in Rannoch and Trickers. I don't size up or down. Works for me.

I had Rannoch’s in the same size as my Stows and they were more generous in the toe box. My Bourton’s are half a size smaller but I would imagine 4444 is similar fit to Rannoch in equivalent size.

I’d go same size as 4444. I’m 8.5 and fit perfect in that and 4444, 9 in everything else.
Interesting, not so much concerning the Tricker's sizes (which I use to order in the same manner (4444/4497 fit 6=9; other 9.5)) but concerning your RMW sizing, as I might stick to a 9 but fit H in that respect (instead of the half size up to the 4444 which you seem to like best)...

H fitting are better if you’re used to Trickers widths. I can wear the G but prefer the H.

Hi, does anyone know about these black cordovans? They are apparently a make for Superdenim some years ago. These are for sale on a used product platform and I think they look superb.

P.S. I do not own these photos which belong to the present owners of the boots..

They have just updated their outlet with some stow and Bourton if you are looking for those.
