    Dammit, I was all ready to buy them in my size and had a free shipping code and then the day I went to checkout it sold out in my size [​IMG]

    Good things come to those who act quickly, I suppose.

    yeah these are 44, and I usually wear 45. They are snug, but like I said I have huge wool socks on + heat tech tights so its more snug than usual. I would say they fit .5 larger than listed.

    Sorry if you answered this before, but how did you size those compared to some of the other stuff you own?

    baby calf
    thin and soft.

    kangaroo
    thin and strong.

    soft horse
    thick and soft.

    horse
    thick and a little more stiff, not so soft but not super stiff (like A1923).

    bison
    thick and also a little more stiff, but not super stiff.

    This was from Holger of hide-m, have been in contact recently about a custom order of 988's.
    Either that or save up a bit more and get those Augusta double zips.
    But the idea of making me own scars and creases on some Guidi horse entices me.

    I have been in constant email as well but didnt want to bother him with too many questions :eek:

    Thanks for asking. I am also trying to meet the order deadline. Mind PMing your details just so I have an idea?
    I already 995 in reverse kangaroo (bone)

    Trying to stay away from black this time.

    edit:
    ^I prefer the shape of Guidi's TBH though I have seen some nice boots in here

    edit2:
    With that said I may still stick with the kangaroo...strong. beast.

    toast, default grey looks good to me as long as it is that dark, that being said i thought that a member on sf ordered that grey and it came in the lighter color you posted

    someone else posted these a1923 backzips a while back, and now i'm strongly considering getting them. the price is 625€ / $845, including international shipping and paypal fees. they don't really appear to have much wear so it seems like a pretty good deal.

    i just have two main concerns:
    1. they're marked size 43 and the seller said they fit tts with an insole, but could fit bigger without. i'm a true size 44. he said the insole measures 29cm / 11.4" which seemed pretty comparable to my shoes. would it be reasonable or overly optimistic to expect these to fit? if they were a bit too tight, do you think a cobbler could stretch them without issue?
    2. i want to wear these with the shaft of the boot tucked _under_ my pants (or pants over the boot shaft, w/e). i anticipate wearing them mainly with slim-straight jeans that measure 19cm / 7.5" across the leg opening. he told me that i would be able to do that without any problem, but has a fit pic (here) with his pants tucked into the jeans which gives me some doubts...i really dislike the boot tuck on side/backzips. he said the top of the boot shaft measures 35cm / 13.75" in circumference. unfortunately i don't have any good boots to compare it with (the main reason i want them...). just comparing my hem measurement to the shaft it seems like it shouldn't be a problem but i also don't want my jeans to look incredibly stiff near my calves. anyone have any idea if that would work?

    i'd really appreciate any input on this. thanks in advance guys.

    I actually like the color tellure received though I too wish it was darker. The darker color looks even purplish, which is cool.

    Default gray will be cool in a reverse leather type. Maybe bison for more texture / fuzziness and it will also be darker due to the sponginess of the hand versus smooth leather.

    wurm we pmed about this, those a1923 are TTS, if you are a true 11 (44) your toe will be all the way in front where the toe upturns in the boot,

    what does your foot measure see http://brannock.com/cgi-bin/htmlos.cgi/009275.1.041718497200009488,

    here are measurements from aurevoiretmerci when i bought them:
    Backzip boot 43/44
    Outsole: 31,5cm/32cm
    Height: 24,5cm/24,5cm
    Heel height: 2,75cm/2,75cm
    Max width: 10,5cm/10,75cm
    Width at toebox: 9,5cm/9,75cm
