I hope you don't get indigo stains all over them!
I was thinking about that but I have decided to not pamper my shoes.

...and to fix stains and blemishes in my shoes I have started an exhaustive cleaning routine.

I’ve got a fresh pair of selvedge jeans and have been avoiding all of my lighter footwear with them at the moment.

I downsized from my Kempton’s 6.5UK to 6 UK with my Chatsworth for an adequate fit.
I went TTS with these. I'm a 14 on a brannock device, and these are 13 UK.
It doesn't exist one accurate advice on boots sizing as it depends on how your feet adapt to their last: my feet are slender, with a low volume and instep so I prefer to downsize with a wide last such as the Jockey, just as Loake recommends. If your feet are somehow wide and with a high instep, you shouldn't downsize. Each of us expresses our own experience that can be different from others.

"Jockey is a G width last which will suit customers with wider feet. The fit is generous both at the toe and generally. The toe shape is rounded and of standard length. Customers who would normally purchase F width styles may wish to select a half size smaller with this last shape."

Yeah very true. I think if someone fit into F width shoes then they should definitely consider going down a half size on the Jockey last whereas I have duck-like feet so find Loake's G width offerings to accommodate me much better.
