    How do they fit? I'm a 7D on Brannock, what would my size for the Ottawa be?

    Interesting looking balmoral short boot available in Horween #6 cordovan (reduced from $1475 to $660) available at Franco's Fine Clothier. Only 1 left in a 9.5... I'd be interested if it were a 13... :(

    The hiking boots are really great too! How does one care for the Grey Roughout Italian Calf with a Waxed Finish? Like on would care for suede? Thrown off by the "waxed finish" part, as the waxed suedes I see online have that slicked back look ;)

    I don't think Ron's got an affiliate thread here so this seems like the best thread to post.

    Cross-posted from Dappered:

    Really impressed by some of the new drops on Ron Rider's website. There are a few new boots under Rider Boot Co and then an entire line under Moretti Gold! They're all made in Italy and Blake welted. There are some beautiful looking boots in there and the balmorals also look stunning. Really just excellent shoes if you're looking for something in the Carmina price range.

    Here are some that I liked:

    First pic is during a trip to Singapore where they got beat up very hard.

    Second pic is one from a couple months earlier

    This one is from a week or so ago

    So in terms of ages, middle one is the oldest, then the first pic and last pic is the newest
