    I am a weak, despicable being without character and resolve. All these recent posts about about CC's and Blaxlands. Expounding the Blaxland as being less chunky than the CC, being more true to the leather in and outsole Craftsman. Is it true? Are they right? Gnawing away at me, disturbing my sleep.
    Finally I succumbed. My children are unfed, the rent is unpaid but at this very moment a pair of Blaxlands are winging their way North from the Antipodes.

    Cheers from a weak and depraved soul.

    Recieved my kangaroo CC yesterday. Are they supposed to be that wrinkley? I will post pictures later on today.

    Here are the pictures. Some how I dont think they supposed to look like that around the elastic and the line across the toe box.

    They look fine to me. Just natural variations in leather, I'd say.

    I've just got some Craftsman in Chestnut and have similar (especially around the elastic). I thought it was a little odd and am a little cheered to hear that I'm not alone and must assume its natural variation. I'm otherwise very happy with my boots; just waiting for a dry day (in Sydney) to break them in.

    They can make F widths for you - it takes 3-4 weeks longer.

    You can get virtually any combination you want if you go MTO. Download RMW's catalogue from their website and check out the boot section.

    Cheers


    I just ordered the black leather Craftsmans and the brown suede Craftsmans in 11F from bootsonline...

    I couldn't order them from the website so I emailed them and they called me (from Australia) and we placed the order...

    3-4 weeks. I just hope I can survive that long without them...

    Thanks for the help!

    Amce is a true blue dinky di RMW man.......now that is very hard to top. Perhaps one day, Baxter will get a chance to supply his feet with something new. RMW is a religion.......!

    I know, I know but winter is approaching. I crave that composite sole. I refuse to put a top-sole on leather. Will save the B's until spring.

    Does anyone know if the RMW seconds/clearance stores ever have sales? Do they happen on any sort of a schedule? My flat-mate told me that he attended such a sale in North Queensland. Seconds were apparently being sold for AU$80/pr [​IMG]

    So am I. I guess I'm an Aussie boot guy above and beyond everything else. You can't beat the quality of a top-notch Aussie RMW/Baxter chelsea boot. At present I have the HBC boots while my wife has a lovely pair of RMW. I'll be getting some mock crocs soon, though. Have been eyeing those for some time now.

    I haven't visited the factory as yet, but have driven past it a few times and have visited the Baxter family shoe store in Goulburn.

    Hello everyone. Im quite new to these type of boots and I've been looking for a pair for a while now. Mostly, I have been looking at the Comfort Turnout, Comfort Craftsman and Gardener. I live in sweden so they need to be able to withstand hard winter conditions, considering our winters here ( a lot of salt and so on). Which one of these would you recommend?

    Would also be very helpfull if you could give your opinion on where to buy these online. Also, does anyone know if there is a difference in sizes between the Comfort Turnout and the normal Turnout?

    Thanks in advance, Freakydog!


    Anyone? would appreciate some help on this.

    I have both the gardener and the comfort craftsman. The gardener is more rugged, but the comfort craftsman is enough for the never-more-than-half-an-inch-snow we have here in southern Sweden. I like the looks more of my CCs hence I'm selling my gardeners, but if you really want it to last I think the gardeners will take more of a beating.

    As I've mentioned a few times above I live in southern Sweden (i Blekinge). I wear my Comforts all year round. As long as you look after them properly, as you must do with all leather footwear, they'll get you through a southern swedish winter. Of course if you have half a metre of newly fallen snow outside then I would choose something more substantial that day. I wear my hiking boots to work and carry my CC's in my bag on such days but that rarely happens down here.
    I think the Gardner is more of a work boot. The Craftsman is a dress boot and can be worn in the office with a suit. Which I do, all the time.

    Cheers
