• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I am usually about size 11 in RW and 11.5 in adidas, 11.5 to 12 in nike. My feet are a bit wide though so I am a 10H (the wide option in RM Williams)

If you aren’t going in person I’d think there is no difference. I have ordered from the latter and had within days and have visited the former. Both established reputable firms.

Cheers! I’ll go with them, though I’m confident in my sizing ( this will be my fifth pair of RMW, over the past 25 years).

Olive Chinchillas today. I love them. The color works with everything. They are simple, sharp, ridiculously comfortable no-brainer slip-ons compared to my other boots that require a comparative morning production number to put on. It sounds so stupid, I know, but being able to grab these and go has me reaching for them over all of the other brown-ish boots in the closet including my beloved pair of Carmina jumpers.

I've even warmed up to the toe. I wasn't super in love with the slightly squared (Is it considered a chisel?) at first but I dig it now. It's different from the rest of the rounded/almond toe boots in my closet and ...well, I just love these boots.





Awesome stuff. I hope everyone is having a great week!

The "dark olive" is definitely hard to capture in photos! In person they do have a visible green-ish tint but for the most part they're really a medium-brown boot.

Yes, the toe is called a chisel toe, it's the same last as the Craftsman which is chisel. I've always liked it, I'm actually so used to it that I don't really like any other chelseas that don't have it, even very high end ones.

Olive looks great, if Chinchillas had the comfort inner I'd probably have bought a pair over Rum Comfort Craftsman, the Chinchilla leather looks awesome with the natural sole edge. Natural edge in general is awesome.

I actually wore my Rum pair out bush for a week for work instead of their normal office duties, they held up awesome. Perfectly comfortable to walk all day in and a quick clean and natural polish and they'll look good as new. I haven't noticed any patina or lightening around the creases yet, they still look pretty much the same as when I bought them.

Most recently jumped on the bandwagon and purchased a pair of the Chestnut Yearling Comfort Craftsman. Beautiful pair and have yet to wear them out - could someone let me know if there's any preparation I should do before wearing them in about a week's time for an event?

Condition/polish them first? Should I apply a topy sole or toe taps?

Cheers!

If they’re the comfort craftsman they will have the rubber sole? The Classic has leather. I added a topy sole but depends on how often you’d wear and to do what?

I’d not touch em polish wise for a while. Rm do a nice conditioning cream which keeps leather supple, enjoy them, great boots.

I'd probably wear them 2-3x a week and alternate them after every use - mainly for office work. Should I condition it overnight before I start wearing them?
