    thank you both kind sirs! [and just to share the basics, doesn't shrink too much [it is receiving 15 min front loader 40c washes], seems to be all cotton stitching - hence lovely puckers - is generously sized everywhere [wearing a 38 whereas for lvc jkt would wear a 44] except for length - but that makes it a nice hoverer between blouson and chore... loving the scalloped front... as wearing it between jkt & shirt the collar is expected first place of blow out / fatigue]

    indeed: they provide the strangely comforting feeling of wearing extremely robust tank-slippers

    thanx [- and srs respect to yr style innovations] the most serious shoe investment I have made yet into the only brand I have seen recommended by swat instructors alongside dearest eastern hipsters and also biblical trump-ish hunters (and I thought I was going for relaxed summer style to replace poor options of chucks, desert boots, birkenstocks...)

    ^ one day at a time... at this point i don't need a small army to pull them off, but during the breaking-in process, a teeny-weeny crack in the leather appeared in the vamp, I believe from accumulated pressure of instep of foot winning over instep of boot - not at a bending point so can't think what else it would be [boot too small, you say... perhaps, went with the 'size down half for 2268 redwing' advice proffered both online and instore, and they pretty damn comfy now but def. won't fly off when I throw my dramatic highsteps] was going to leave the boot without too much love, the odd bit of dubbin if needed, but now mink oil has been sought, bought, applied, prayers offered to the boot-leather-gods... [was aiming not to be precious about them - got them to see what engineer boots are like [and enjoying the style greatly, esp. the aggro heel and the bulbous toe of that model] and also to see what it is like to have a boot that really doesn't need babying and bears more abuse than my usual english cuntry style - and here I am offering cuddles and night-time soakings...]
