I take the same size for Inca and Forest.
They definitely seem to be styled somewhat like a chukka at the top, but the opening on my pair isn't big enough to fit four fingers. I just tied the laces a bit tighter at the top, which doesn't look quite as nice, but closes the gap. If I leave the gap open, I can fit two fingers in there, but it's nothing crazy. Agreed. Just because they're not lasted doesn't mean they don't fit better; the difference is obvious on my pairs.
I'd actually prefer the Carmina trees, as my Epics don't fill out the instep and toes quite as well (maybe this is a sizing issue? Any input from other people with Epics?), and the closest alternative is C&J trees that go for $100 per pair.   Mike: Have we scrapped the chocolate calf/purple suede greeley in place of the purple calf/snuff suede?   And just re-upping my suggestion for a jodhpur or chelsea in hatchgrain. I know at least one other person was up for a...
I agree that most government guys could look better, but most people just don't care about clothes. By that same token, why isn't everyone on SF worried about being in perfect physical shape? Because working out (even though it makes you look better, much like clothes) is a niche interest, also like clothes.
For whatever reason, I already had that color in mind, even though the example of Loden shell that I found was much brighter:   http://obviousamerica.com/2011/05/22/yuketen-loden-shell-cordovan-penny-loafer/#more-654   That darker color looks REALLY good--the indoor subtlety/outdoor color would probably feel a lot like Ruby shell. And I just think that darker green looks more tough. Count me in.   Now I'm worried that this will turn into another cognac shell debacle, with...
Agreed; I haven't been a huge fan of chukkas since throwing away my Clarks a while back. What kind of boot (or shoe) would you like to see for that hatch grain?
That Austerity is a beautiful shape, and the color is on point. Two pairs of ruby boots? Killing it.
People who are forced to dress "nicely" every day tend to have a bad habit of wearing really ugly "nice" things. Unless you take it up as a hobby/interest instead of just a requirement, you're probably going to look like you rent your suits.
Finally getting those Lamas coming my way...    
Agreed. What do you guys think, make them super tough with storm welt + Dainite, or flat welt + double leather (possibly with a lighter trim, like the green monks posted earlier)?   frog: great photos, and great boots. Looking really nice.
