I'm in line for a pair of the brown Road Champs. I was told that the leather for the boots was in the process of being procured - which they admitted could be a while. I was in line a while back and got the email saying they were available, but I had just made a large $ jacke purchase and couldn't swing two large purchases so close together. I have the money tucked away now, ready for the Road Champs... ...then I see these Wesco engineers in British Tan. https://standardandstrange.com/coll...nniversary-engineer-boot-british-tan-naildown Like the build, love the color, hate the label (but it wouldn't be seen). Should I continue to hold off for the Road Champs? It isn't like I need another pair of boots, so no real hurry. To be honest, I don't see a lot of discussion on the Road Champs, probably owing to their relative rarity. I'm not going to buy both and I don't want to buy some obscure Japanese brand online and worry about fit issues. I'm also not the type to get all wet over laser perfect stitching.
