Just got my Chelsea boots and worn them once. Here’s my 2 cents hopefully it can provide some insights to those interested! Leather seems really supple. However the creasing is pretty obvious in the vamp area. Not too sure whether it’s due to the characteristic of the leather or if it’s not lasted properly. Welt and insole executed well.
I found that the same thing happened to my RMWs. Part of it may be due to it being a single piece of leather. You'll see this with a lot of wholecut Chelsea's.

One small design modification I would suggest is to consider two symmetrical collar flaps instead of one larger one.

Then, the shoulders have a little bit of a structured suit look, but there is a trade-off with range of motion if you bring it in closer pre break-in. Still, you may be able to reduce some of the folding in that area in the back pics and the sharp corner at the shoulder

Great to hear you got it.
So we had this in the thread a while back with someone concerned with the creasing. I shared pictures of my tester pair when we were choosing the leather and this particular skin has a very unique property and is usually reserved for bespoke or special edition pairs. So when not worn the shoes wont look as great but when worn it will pop back to life... I will try and find the post it was a while back when we were explaining all this. I think i want to doxa video on it because i really vest up my pair and it looked all beaten and worn, never polished or used any product on it and just got it resoled and the upper looks brand new. The leather is soft but surprisingly resiliant, you will see over time.
I see. I’ll have to admit though it’s really comfortable!

The dark wash is a bit towards a standard fit, with a tiny bit of taper. It fits a bit large around the back of the thighs while being just right around the waist. I'm 176 and 70kg.

I was hoping it’d be so expensive that I could just ignore it. However it’s a pretty reasonable price, putting it in line with Aero
I was hoping the same thing, but It's looking to be a serious schott competitor, both in form and function. Though I do wish it had a bi-swing back.
