Would be it possible for a cobbler to take off the sole of some DMs and put on a crepe or leather sole ?

No cobblers will touch a DM I think.

What's the sizing like on Guidis? Specifically the ankle length leather boots… Go TTS?

Thanks

its hard to say really. sizing seems to be a little sporadic. but generally its seems people either go true or size up. best advice is to try a pair irl before you buy.
i sized up one. mine are the reverse horse back zips model 986. they fit really tight at first but after a few wears, they literally feel like slippers buy far the comfiest footwear i own.

Diemme for me at the minute, just grabbed the Colac model in Cognac as was beginning to get bored with Roccia vet.
Well made boots, far superior to Fracap and a nice alternative to the like of Danner.

What's a good sand/stone coloured suede boot/desert boot (not too clunky) that's above Clarks, but not heading into the Alden/Visvim pricing. APC?

Personally I think if you want a desert boot, why go anywhere but Clarks? The quality you get for the price can't be bested IMO..

Edit: point in case - in the second link above, that APC desert boot is identical to a Clarks. But triple the price???

Mr Porter had them last season, expect they will probably have them this season too?

General rule is to size down a half, I sized down 1 though.

I would suggest you take a trip to Browns to try them on mate, that's what I did (Amin's advise) and it paid off.
