    The shoes fit well and are comfortable. Maybe I'm just being obsessive, but after a few wears, the leather is creasing in a different pattern on both boots. Should I be concerned or is this normal?

    Camera isn't so good, but you can see that the creasing is very fine on the one of the left while the right has thicker creasing patterns. It's more obvious in normal light in person.

    Dude, totally normal. Your feet aren't exactly the same, and your gait will largely determine how these wear. They are workbooks, beat the shit out of them and live your life.

    Thanks. Makes me feel better. The crease pattern happens all over the boot where one creases very thinly and the other is thick. Was just worried about quality and what not since none of my other boots did that.

    Ha. 45bur, I wanna buy you a beer. Can I just steal that line from this point forward? "Dude, just [something relevant] and live your life."

    T_T I know I should relax more about these things. I'm just the type of person that can go crazy looking at asymmetrical details. Glad I have nothing to worry about though!

    I bought a pair of boat shoes earlier this year. I had a really minor nit with the stitching on one of the toe boxes. OSB took the shoes back, restitched the toe box, and returned them in perfect condition. In this situation, I was the obnoxious OCD customer, but there wasn't a moment that OSB made me feel like I was a pain. My sincerest thanks, OSB.

    On top of great service, these are the most comfortable sumer shoe I have ever worn. CXL is a great material and their workup of the leather is really nice. I'm in love. I look forward to more purchases (and fewer "difficult customer" scenarios). Thanks, OSB!

    It pains me to see that OSB has actually made such a boot for Woodlands, a gorgeous two-tone chukka, but I cannot buy it because a rubber sole is a necessity for me. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet!

    I know I saw on osb Instagram that natty cxl roughout is coming to the website. You can always ask for custom sole and see if it's doable!

    I sold a pair of Indy that didn't fit too well so I could pickup that rough out boot. It's my favorite this season.

    I may just do that! Great suggestion. I just hope it doesn't cost me an arm. Or a leg. Or both. I need those.

    The camp boots seem to be on sale everywhere and I've heard they are getting a face lift, any news on this?

    George posted there was a slight redesign earlier. Can't imagine it's that big of a difference though?

    So tony posted a pic on Instagram, looks like suede or rough out trench boot. Are these soon to be released, and will they be available as a chukka?

    I saw a trench with a black vibram sole mentioned earlier. Will there be a non wedge version? If so, I'm all over that

    I have my custom order of dark brown trench captoes coming hopefully early next week... any recommendations for pre treatment on the boots? would it be different because they are dark brown instead of natural? buy a different type of shoe cream? first pair of boots so gotta do it up right to have em last forever.

    Looking for some quick size advice for the trench boot, I've searched through the thread and just looking for some confirmation.

    I usually measure around a 9 on a brannock device but even with thick socks I fit comfortably into 8.5 CDB with still a bit more than half a thumbs width in the toes. Should I go with a 9 like they recommend or try an 8.5?
