@Chulillo I love the red jacket - Belstaff?   @thefoxtooth +1 to everything. 
I'll definitely be there!
At the same numeric size, the trench boot is definitely not wider than the regular Wolverine 1Ks (it might be wider than the Allen-Edmonds built shell cordovan models, but I've never owned them).    Blue Owl sells both and has measurements for both on their site: https://www.blueowl.us/product/oak-street-bootmakers-black-dainite-trench-boot/ https://www.blueowl.us/product/wolverine-1000-mile-in-black/   Those measurements match up with mine, measuring from...
 I have both OSB Trench boots (Color 8, dainite) and several pairs of Wolverine 1Ks.
