    I wear my NDC boot shoes/boots and my BoO sperry boots. I have 3 pairs of BR desert boots that I haven't worn in forever.

    The RW iron rangers look a lot like the LL bean engineer boots from earlier in the thread. Has anyone handled both of these boots that can give us a conclusion as to which one if of better quality?

    +1.

    I'm interested in either of those. Also, could someone tell me difference (if any) between RW Iron Rangers & J.Crew x RW Iron Rangers.

    ^ you can get RW Iron Rangers from www.cultizm.com cheaper than from J. Crew, and they come in more colors. I suspect they'd be of better quality than the LL Bean boots, but the LL Beans should still be a good pair of shitkickers.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on the LL Bean Katahdin boots. http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/sto...2767-sub2&np=Y I've been eyeing them for quite awhile and now that the weather has turned, I finally have a good reason to order them.
    After deciding that I wasn't too big into the Gentleman Traveler I bought some Katahdin boots in my size and they're awesome - I find excuses to wear them! I thought I might need an EE but I got me a D width and it went from being snug to comfortably snug. If I decide I really really need an EE width I can always return them to LL bean for the EEs when they become available, which is a gigantic plus! Also if anyone owns any of the service shoes sold on wwiiimpressions.com, please post! edit: I'm talking about these http://wwiiimpressions.com/usarmy.html#russet and these look nice too! http://atthefront.com/ -> US -> Footwear -> Service shoes roughout versions of the shoes above are also available! To my knowledge they're still made by the Corcoran company so you know there's quality there. Also, someone buy my GTs!

    This thread makes me want Paul Smith boots so bad. Those look just as good in real life as on the PS site.

    Those are very nice. They look like a lower cost RWGT. How is the fit? Do they run big like typical DM's?

    What kind of soles do you have on the brogue boots, deuce? I want something similar, but with leather soles instead of the commando sole, which seems more common.

    Tarmac, what is the color on your Tricker's Stows? Per Pediwear with leather sole they come in Marron Antique, Acorn Antique, Black Calf, and Expresso Burnished. About to pull the trigger, hard to resist at $1.48 exchange rate. [​IMG]
