We are delighted to announce that Rundle Tailoring are now proud stockists of iconic Australian brand R.M. Williams. R.M. Williams is amongst the best-known, best-loved footwear brands in the world, and for good reason. Their high-quality boots, apparel and accessories are designed for comfort, durability, and timeless style, and we look forward to showing these to you in-store.
It means a lot for us to be working with this celebrated Australian-owned and Australian-made business, as we also take great pride in keeping our operations local. Both our brands have endured the test of time, made possible by our steadfast beliefs in quality Australian craftsmanship and manufacturing.
The Australian-owned business has evolved from its humble stockman origins while retaining its early principles of crafting products as hardy as the environment they’re made for. The brand’s pioneer, Reginald Murray Williams, was a South Australian stockman and leatherworker who crafted saddles, bridles and riding boots in the early 1930s. While living and working in the Flinders Ranges on Adnyamathanha land of the Yura people, RM learnt leather tooling from Indigenous stockman Michael George Smith (also known as Dollar Mick). Together they pioneered the iconic “one-piece of leather” riding boot design, which remains R.M. Williams signature style almost 100 years later. Their footwear and leather goods grew in notoriety thanks to their high quality and endurability against the harsh conditions of the outback. Over the following 90 years, R.M. Williams has become a closet staple for country and city-dwellers alike, and their reputation for exceptional quality is now renowned on a global scale.
A fellow Australian manufacturer and heritage brand like ourselves, R.M. Williams also preserves their longstanding traditions by continuing to handcraft their distinctive boots in South Australia as they have since 1932. Over 80 handmade processes are involved in creating each pair of classic RMs, ensuring their exemplary quality and superior fortitude. R.M. Williams boots are not merely a purchase, but an investment made with longevity in mind. They even offer a specialised repair service to ensure your RMs keep returning on investment for years to come. Our selection of Comfort Craftsman boots come in shades of chestnut, black, and dark tan, and are already in high demand. We also offer leather care and cleaning products to keep your RMs looking good as new, while feeling good as old.
R.M. Williams knows premium leather, and their Australian-made belts are no exception. Developed using time-honoured techniques mastered by RM himself, and inspired by the brand’s rich history, the Jerrawa and 1 ½ inch belts are crafted from solid hide leather in their Adelaide workshop. With choices of black or chestnut leather to match our offering of RMs boots, coordinate your accessories with these reliable pieces.
Our selection of core and seasonal R.M. Williams pieces includes examples of their distinguished footwear, accessories and clothing. The Ramco straight-leg jean is the perfect pant for hard work or hard play and can be styled up or down to suit your needs. Available in navy, buckskin and classic indigo, R.M. Williams know how to do denim well, and has the credentials to prove it as the brand was the first to ever manufacture denim jeans in Australia over 75 years ago.
