Damn, that's beautiful. Would have been in on it a month or two ago, but spent the funds

I can't claim credit to it. I saw it on the ZB website as one of their sample models then I discovered Schumann Wien in Austria was the shop that ordered it. Unfortunately, they didn't deduct VAT so the price was more expensive than doing a MTO.

 

I would always encourage buying it from a retailer if you can!

 

Good luck with your GMTO!

How has the Russian Calf been holding up for you?  I own the jodhpurs in the material but have been too scared to take them out in any wet weather.  I noticed on your Instagram that you had taken your pair out in the rain and got them soaked - how have they held up?

Wasn't the worse storm on that day but it got wet. It's holding up well for me. Works similar to cxl where you got lighter areas where the leather flexes. I suspect it is also hot stuffed hence some people have finishing issues as the oils come to the surface. But that is just my conjecture.

Really don't need to baby it imo.

Glad to hear that. Michael informed me that the whitening/pull-up effect is due to the heavy amount of oils and fats that rise to the surface due to the tanning process, much like CXL and shell, it really is a beautiful leather.

In other news, we finally have 3 for the GMTO! Last chance for anyone else who wants to join.

Just ordered the Jodhpur II in Bavarian calf via the Zonkey website.

 

I'll keep you all updated as to the service and will of course post photos once they arrive.

 

Thanks to @KSunnyH for his review and PMs which helped enormously.

 

For reference I ordered 7E which is what Alexandra advised and every review seems to suggest based on my G&G/EG sizing (also 7E).

Cheers! Looking forward to the pictures.

Five days later and 7.30 this morning a rather interesting package arrives.

 

 

Extremely well packaged as you see. It is amazing how these have come from Austria and the box has less damage than the ones received from within the UK.

 

 

Here they are. Money well spent and worth every penny. Glad I ordered the 7E (7F in European sizes) as they are spot on - nice and snug but also spacious (not quite sure how they have managed that) and they are so light and clearly a well constructed item.

 

 

Definitely more purchases going Zonkey's way. First class.

If you guys are still looking for one more person to get in on that MTO for the whole cut derby, with norvegese stitch on the sailor last, I'm in. Let me know.

I too could be interested in this now that I have worn my Jodhpurs a few times and am happy with the fit of the Sailor last.

 

I seem to recall we were talking Vibram sole with Norvegese welt. What leather and finish was suggested?

Unfortunately our GMTO was put into production a few weeks ago, but you two should contact Alexandra and see what your options are.

Ah - no worries. I have been contemplating the wholecut derby but am still undecided on leather and colour.

 

Update the thread once they arrive as I will be very interested to see how they turn out. :cheers:
