And here they are ... arrived today.  They look warmer in the flesh (I will take some more pictures in better light) and I love them!            
Gents ... you might remember me posting requests for your interest in a suede Burford a while ago .... which, sadly, no-one bar one bought into at the time.  Well, Richard went ahead with it anyway and the boots arrived today.  They look warmer in the flesh (I will take some more pictures in better light) and I love them!

Just about the only place is the Tricker's shop at: 67 Jermyn StreetSt James'sLondonSW1Y 6NY Other places might have a few styles but this is where you will find the widest selection.  And there are many of their competitors along the street - C&J, Lobb, Cheaney (coming soon) et al. As Grove says, you are likely to melt your card and go home broke but happy.
I have never had Vibrams (not really my scene) but if it is just the look of the sole that you dislike then that is an easy solve ...

Tricker Limited, est. 1829 ... hence the ebay name retricker1829. Best,MM
10.5 is not 10 1/2 ... it is size 10, width fitting 5 (average).  4 is slim (women's shoes and boots), 6 is wide.   If your Stows were size 10 1/2 they would say 10 1/2.5   When you say that you have been wearing them for a while, how long do you mean?  I used to wear a 10, I now wear an 11.  Many people's feet spread a bit with age.  But maybe you mean a shorter period than several years.   However, if you can show that your Chepstows are differently sized to one...
 Sorry, the specification was lost on the last post ... it is: Burford Boot on 4497s last, Fitting 5.Gaucho Repello Suede.Mushroom Binding.Natural Barbour Welt.Brown Dainite Sole.Vintage Green Calf Lining.Brown Pull Loops.Four Brass Eyelets, Three Brass Ski-Hooks.Leather Laces. Here is a picture of one in a different colour:  and a Stow in Gaucho:  Mix the two together in your head and you should have a fairly good idea of how it will look. Best,MMgiving a fairly good idea...
