I ordered the Original Chippewa for J.Crew Plain-Toe Boots: http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/ruggedboots/PRDOVR~05712/05712.jsp
I received two pairs with similar workmanship which I believe to be defects where the stitching ends close to the heel. I have since sent back the first pair. I was told by a customer rep that since they were hand crafted, these are not defects, but how this boot is made. I am not sure what to believe since I have read good things about the quality of this brand, and I am wondering if this is just part of the style as the rep told me. The rest of the shoe looks fine.
First Pair: These have been returned.
