Oh I can give you the rundown: 

 

Suede: Sand, Snuff, Chocolate, Grey, Navy, Black

 

Couro Cromo: Saddle, Black, Auburn,

Will some of these end up being stocked eventually? Just wondering if, as always seems the case, I NEED TWO.

I'll be going with either Sand or Grey. Never seen a navy suede chelsea so I'm hesitant to be one of the first.

 

One more thing @Epaulet, I know they're crepe sole so are they blake stitched or cemented/glued?

Perfect! Thanks.

Sand for me. Can I get a matching weekender smile.gif

Grey suede Chelsea are a great choice

@sarteaga  yes, we've got something for everyone. Don't count out the Couro Cromo colors either - they look absolutely radiant. 

 

They construction is blake/rapid. The upper is secured to the top of the sole via the central blake stitch. The bottom of the sole is then glued on to the top. And a rapid stitch is manually run around the edge, securing it 360 degrees around the boot. The blake stitch is well protected from the pavement, and the rapid stitch will keep the two pieces of crepe tightly attached.

If I wear an 11.5D in an Aberdeen last,  11D in Trubalance last, what size would you suggest in the Chelsea?

@rydenfan great minds think alike! I actually intended this, but we ran into a snag. We worked up a sample, but the natural horse didn't hold the shape very well. We could probably use an oiled and treated version of horsehide down the road, but the unfinished horse was a bit problematic for the main cut piece. That's the only reason why it wasn't included.

Great to hear @Epaulet! And one more question, sorry. The welt, will it be naturally finished or can we pick the finish?

 

I'm hoping we get to see a better picture of the boots. Frankly only two things can get me not to order the boots. 1. The last being too bulbous and 2. the fit not complimenting my foot. I plan to go to the trunk show on Saturday so hopefully both those worries are remedied. Seems like I may go the grey boot route thanks to @rydenfan

No problem at all. The welt is just naturally finished, so that's going to be fixed on all of the styles. 


I ordered the samples in a full size run, so we'll be able to fit everyone at the show. We've got sizes 8 through 12 available - all in half-size increments. 

 

The last is a great shape, but it's intended to be a casual piece, so it's not really chiseled. I'll have all the usual views for the product images.

Perfect. Looking for it to be more of a casual chelsea versus a chiseled dressy like chelsea. That's actually what's driving my choice of leather or suede. Going to try my best to be one of the first there.

@Epaulet Are the 2 new Walts posted the only new stock flannels? I already own the Smokey Blue (killer color) from a MTO order and have the Racing Green from last year.
Also does the Grey Hopsack restock include size 35? I don't see it listed.
