    Is anyone currently stocking suede Chelseas? I keep hearing about how they're a staple item, but I can't find them from Carmina (direct), Epaulet, GF, Quality Shop, Armoury, or Leatherfoot. I know Unipair has at least one style, but I'm really not a fan of the rubber sole.

    Carmina until recently had stock of a dark brown suede chelsea on Simpson in their webstore, the last couple of sizes have moved to the odd sizes sale.

    There are two different GMTO's right now on GF. A grey suede on Sollar abd a brown suede on Rain I believe. Why not get in on one of those?

    Does anybody know the answer to this:

    Would a shoe on the Simpson last in a 9.5 be the same overall length as a 9.5 on the Rain last? Is the Simpson more elongated then the Rain, while the rain is a bit wider?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks
