    Is the craftsman narrower in width compared to turnout/gardener?

    If i'm a 7f in rm williams turnout will i be a 7f in the craftsman?

    Be interesting to see a turnout/garderner next to a craftsman.

    Why are stores like bootsonline allowed to sell at a price point that is less than the official RM Williams stores?

    I'm guessing because it's another sales channel for RM and they don't need to pay for sales staff for those sales so they can still maintain their profit margin. I think those online stores must put through relatively high volumes. The team governing non-boutique sales is probably separate to the team responsible boutique sales, as they wouldn't want their business to be undercut.

    Fair enough.

    I'm in Melbourne right now. Stopped by the flag ship store in the Central mall. It's cheaper for me to purchase via bootsonline and have the shipped than it is for me to purchase here and get my GST refund after.

    This is quite often the case and can make a whole lot of sense. There are some occasions where it is better to pay full retail at a B&M store - need it now, ability to check fit and finish, etc.
