    anyone have any experience, both fit and other of lined vs unlined.

    considering a turnout or bushman

    i know my turnout size, but what difference (if any) does unlined make?

    Anyone have any feedback about the bushman's leather as opposed to the turnout's?

    thanks

    Lined or unlined doesn't make any difference to fit. Generally RM only leaves boots unlined if the leather is too thick to be lined, so an unlined vesta boot will be as thick through the vamp as a lined yearling boot. Because the inside of the boot is suede (literally the reverse side of te upper) rather than another layer of smooth leather, unlined boots can be a bit harder to get on due to the extra friction. Not a big deal though if you use both tugs to get them on.

    I don't have a pair of bushmen, but if they are both listed as "yearling" the leather should be the same.

    Looking to own my first RM Williams boot. I will be wearing these with slim dark jeans/tan chinos and walking in them all day. Also considering wearing them with a navy suit.

    Should I get the Comfort Craftsman or Dynamic Flex Craftsman in Chestnut?

    (I'm leaning towards the Dynamic Flex because it's 'airport-friendly' and I will be wearing them to the airport).

    I have both. I'd have to say the dyna-flex is the best compromise between style and durability.

    perhaps the new right on centre government will devalue the currency to boost exports!

    Has anyone ever used Saphir reno'mat on their R.M. William boots? Were the results ok? I'v been converted to Saphir shoe care products and by using reno'mat i can get rid of all the previous creams and polishes and start fresh.

    are they craftsmen ?

    i am pretty sold on the turnout as i prefer a rounder toe, but the H widths (which seem to be my fit - need to visit the store again) in the craftsmen round it off quite nicely (if they are craftsmen!).
