Kindred spirits And any idea of the thickness of the sand suede compared to the roughout? Ideally they'd offer CXL natural roughout, like viberg, but I think it's hard stuff to come by

Ok next boot to build, in a boondocker style:
6" Bounty Hunter or Semi Dress
Contrasting smooth leather tongue (maybe British Tan?)
All antique eyelets
Single midsole, natural
700 Vibram outsoles
1/4" lowered block heel
No celastic toe reinforcement, aka "soft toe"
What you guys think?
Distressed Roughout sounds perfect and very rugged. Just what I need...
They should look something like this.
The site I pulled it from says its standard roughout. But honestly I don't know. It does appear to be a shade different than the distressed roughout, though. Like you said; similar to Alden's snuff suede. Or what yuketen and OSB call peanut suede
Stretching width-wise can actually occur, whereas stretching the length is an exercise in futility. How "too narrow" are they? Also, what leather? CXL would be much more likely to stretch easily.
Would say they are Harvest RO, another build being put together already? Impressed!
Moja: If they are bareable for a while whilst they break in they will stretch in width, just look at some worn boot pics and you'll see the width difference from new, thick socks and get them wet!
