Hey gents, Its been a crazy week for me. Sorry for the late response but Yes, Carmina will not make any more of shell cordovan Jodhpurs. 

When they heat up the shaft part to give it's shape, the shells kept breaking in the past and the factory initially refused the order.

 

Out of the six orders we had, Carmina ended up breaking four shells (so they actually spent 10 pairs worth of shell. Betty was quite firm about not making this style anymore in shell in the future.

Sorry to disappoint :(

 

However, they will be more than happy to make them in suede or calf!

Oh man, they're such a beautiful make up. Im sorry to hear :( 

 

I personally have a semi wide feet and take my normal UK size on Rain /Inca and size up half for Simpson which works quite well for me....but then everyone's feets are a little different and their preference of snugness different which I respect :)

I've got an interesting idea.

Would they be open to making a half and half suede and shell jodphur?

Shaft is made of suede and the rest shell.

Since the Toe / vamp / front shaft is all connected as a one piece, only the back part of the boots can be made with shell. is that what you had in mind??

Steve, can we confirm/specify that the suede chukka will be mid-to-dark brown as initially suggested? (i.e. darker than snuff)

Rustic green sounds amazing I have to agree.

I also really like that captoe boot. Cognac would be amazing!!!

Well I've been enamored with RM Williams chelsea style boots lately and just e-thrifted a pair that I love. 

 

Throwing out a thought here......but anyone up for a Chelsea (or Jodhpur) boot in python snakeskin?

Or Jodhpurs as above....

I jumped the gun with the above chukkas only to realize they are in the Rain last. I'd more than love to run an MTO on the following!

 

Simpson last

Model 010027 (this is in normally the Rain last as an RTW shoe)

Color brown suede (will accept suggestions for other colors as well as long as these are suede)

Preferably dainite sole

 

The below color is snuff.

Folks, got the lizard single monks on Rain last delivered today. And I'm please to report that they fit me like a glove.

 

 

 

 

 

Quite a unique shoe IMHO. Thanks Steve for bringing this project to fruition.
