    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    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.

    It's not that often nowadays that I get blown away by a shoe, but these did it to me. Seriously awesome! Do stock this model Leaves, as you notice by the comments above, won't be any problems to sell them..

    Like I said before, I'm in. :) I'll send an email to confirm.

    What is the difference (if any) in fit as between Oscar and Robert or Forest. I'm a safe UK 9 in both of those,

    I do find my Chelsea boots to be a bit more spacious than my balmorals, both on Simpson. I would not be able to size down however.
