@jdl1279 & @rblnr - thanks for your input around the slate / charcoal question which has lead me to change my order to charcoal roughout which is the colour in the image I added to my previous post. Cheers fellas

I'm pretty excited. I imagine they will look similar to Chris's worn pair in the thread or a chopped pair of the FP above.

Slate RO
MP toe
Brass
buckskin lining
Brown & Khaki stitching
Single midsole
430 sole

Those sound nice. I think the MP last should really dial in the profile compared to the sample pics. I opted for it too

My foot patrol boots are probably my best fitting pair of boots so it seemed like the best choice for me.  I like the rounder toe of the Boss, but I picked up a pair of Lofgren chukka's a while back that have that shape.

What did you go with?  I see you mentioned veg tan above.  I can't imagine trying to break in a veg tan pair.  Too tough for me.  My boots that have Latigo leather are a beast and I understand that's between veg tan and cxl.

Natty essex
MP last
Brown/white stitching
Brass eyes
100H outsole

The veg is a little stiff to start, but breaks in so buttery soft comparatively that it seemed perfect for a long life chukka

Just curious, I ordered these over a week ago, Alex sent an email with my options, I filled it out, hit submit, but never heard anything. Did I do everything correctly?

A few more images.....

This one is an early prototype with a tapered rear upper, it did not work, but the build is great.
