    The new batch of Grain Jumpers are slightly more reddish in color. They are still brown but it's a warm brown. I snapped new pics because the first batch was less warm and a little lighter in color.
    One of the most awesome MTOs that has come through Skoaktiebolaget. I actually gasped when I opened the box and looked at them. :slayer: Very nice choice @stmaier!

    Anybody else find that the chelsea boots fit a bit large? I have a 9.5 Simpson Chelsea and it feels a bit more generous then the oxfords that I own. I'd assume the same for the rain lasted Chelsea's as well.

    Can anybody weigh in on this?

    Those boots definitely look great but due to an abundance of burgundy boots in my closet may I suggest a black (Soller, maybe) shell version as well?

    right here, for now
    my god you've done a fabulous job with that. how does the stitching compare with G&G ?
    it looks 'rougher' or more pronounced on your boot.

    Thanks for the reply Leaves. I sent a query to Edward Green as well and they seem to dis-agree. :confused:

    I've put their response in quotes below.

    Gorgeous boots! How did you even know about the heavy stitch option?
