Just wanted to share pictures of these boots as I received them from Brass the other day. I had ordered these when I went to Japan last year, and 8 months later they're here! This is their Work Round last with black latigo overdye leather. I decided to go up 1 full size from my brannock 10D US, and I think I made the right choice. When I visited the shop, they didn't have this last in my size to try on but a slightly different boot I tried both a half and full size up and the full size felt better to me. Perhaps just a half size up 'could' have worked, but I'd be worried about too snug a fit versus a touch loose. I mostly wear thicker socks so it shouldn't be an issue. 

Amazing craftsmanship from Brass and they feel fairly comfortable right out of the box so I don't think there will be much of a break in process. Excited to see how these wear/age.

amazing boots!!!!! @Mghart
I've always wanted a pair of engineers from clinch, but their sizing has put me off from buying them.

Thanks! @Aries

@aztecsteve I waited to visit them in Japan at their shop because I was so worried about sizing as well. After wearing them for two full days on my feet I still feel that I sized correctly as maybe a half size smaller would have been too snug. I compared the length of the Clinch size 11 to other boots like my Aldens and the length is almost the same but the Aldens are a 9.5. I would love to get one of their engineers or another boot from them at some point on perhaps a different last, but I would still want to at least try something on in person again.
