thanks to @FondDeJante for the heads up on these NOS Otleys. They’re an 8.5 6 fitting so should be ideal. Seem a little snug straight away..

smell like an old saddlers workshop from my childhood. My dad used to jump horses (not like evil kneivel- he rode them..).

Nice! I think my vintage veldtschoen has some sort of a similar smell.

Just sold mine sadly, had to accept that the fit wasn’t ideal.

Those look amazing though, great buy.

Did not know Trickers offered 9 hole boots(not fully laced in photos).

Seven hole is their boot offering I would go for. Cheaney nine hole did not suit my high instep and the closeness of the holes meant space was rather cramped.
.Tricker's actually have patterns available for a high leg Stow which has a 9 lace holes. I did a few MTO in years gone by

Is it not the burnishing that’s inconsistent? I find each pair totally different, only had one click related issue, the boots sans burnishing look totally (inferior..) different in my opinion. I’ve pairs that are consistently dyed which look like another colour.

i had, around 50 pairs m to last year in 3-tone kudu. The sign colour especially almost acted like a rub- off Leather. i restored the colour with. Black wax

I'm mainly taking about how the leather creases. I have no other pairs that have such an uneven creasing amongst pairs...

I don't mind it though, they are heavy wearers.

I’ve definitely seen a few vintage 9 lace stows for sale over the years.

I was pissed that I missed out on the Bourbon Chukka Boots but managed to score the Black and Colour #8 Bobby PTBs.
I was lucky enough to get the bobby in #8 too but not been able to wear them yet. How have yours broken in?

it’s basically same height as this pictured but.....of course this has a straight toe cap so isn’t a ‘Stow’ and it also has a two part leg, same as a few bulk mto lines I have in production.
if you imagine a one piece leg shaft on the picture, that’s basically same size and shape as a 9 lace hole Stow. I’ll see if I can find any images from my old archive.....

No, I haven't worn them yet and unfortunately I probably wont for a while. Truth be told, I got the soles replaced with Ridgeway (Colour #8) and Victory (Black) as I prefer rubber.

Pulled the trigger on a pair of Tricker's polo chukka shoes at Pediwear. I had been eyeing Alden unlined chukkas, but decided that the 700€ price tag was too high for me. These seem like a nice alternative, being unlined and light on the sole – it's actually crazy to me how similar they seem. I was a bit unsure of the sizing: Barrie US10.5D fits me perfectly, and I know that the W2298 is quite small in the forefoot, so I bought both UK10 and UK10.5 to try on. Hoping that the UK10 will fit perfectly, but you never know...

Anyway, will report when the shoes arrive!
I received the chukkas yesterday, but sadly neither of the sizes really fit. UK10 had the widest part of the boot a bit back from the widest part of the ball, causing some pinching – it sure could be managed with in unlined boots, but I didn't like how it felt. UK10.5, on the other hand, was too voluminous, even with an insole. Funnily enough, even with them, the sides of my feet spilled a bit over the welt. So, I have to conclude that the W2298 last just doesn't work for me, which is a real shame. Those chukkas are really beautiful, as are Robert derbies! Perhaps next I'll try the 4497 last if something catches my eye...
