Have you sold these yet? Any pics of them?Thanks for that. Shameless plug for my 8.5G gardener in the black leather. $325 shipped USA. Mild wear for 2 weeks.
I leave for Australia tomorrow so I won't be able to ship until February unless you're quick on the draw and i ship it tomorrow
Unfortunately no, the best "normal" leather they offer is the veal calf which is standard on the Signature Craftsman and some ludicrous cost in the bespoke program (More than the Signature) - they also have ostrich and croc which are like $3k/4k respectively last I heard, but nothing really in between. A shell offering would be very cool for us fashion geeks but I wonder how many of their every day customers actually know what it is. Probably not a good enough market for them?Does RMW make a Chelsea in shell?
Yep a slim leg is a must for chelseas, jeans or chinos preferable. Also agreed on how they should end although I have seen some people (Raw denim fans mainly) go for a look where they turn up the hem, personally that is not for me but seems popular in some circles. Also, if you go bush you could probably pull them off with shorts but I can't see that working in the city somehow.In my opinion, they look best with tapered jeans/chinos, straight to cuff hem so no break, and the hem ending roughly at the top curve of the heel, so mid-gore. Long vs short socks is a personal choice but I often go short.
