    The zipper appears to be... removable?

    Jodhpur is shown as a woman's model, is that the case for yours?

    If possible Id like to see some more pictures of those ...

    If I can ever find my camera charger (or get around to buying a new one), I may post some of the mandatory 'Shoes on Oriental rug' pictures.

    Kaizen, I'm a fran. Interesting -- they look wholecut, and I have read that they are reluctant to make russia calf wholecuts.

    Thanks, they are wholecuts with the single seam at the back. When I ordered them, I mentioned that I like wholecuts in general. I thought it would be the best style for this shoe, in order to to focus on the hide. The guys from Cleverley agreed, but maybe that was just English politeness. [​IMG]

    Imo, the famous Cleverley chisel doesn't complement with the Austrian style, but I have to admit, that I am prestressed.

    When standing and walking, the side-lacing is not very prominent. But I could definitely see going with another style. The pictures I've seen of the two-eyelet derbies look amazing. Since these are 'special occasion' shoes for me, I figured I could go a little wild. My next order will be much more traditional ... maybe. [​IMG]

    Yes it is. They are basically the same as the male model, but I have narrow feet so these fit better. Besides that I think the slightly sleeker last looks better too [​IMG]

    I've had my eye on a pair of Tyrwhitt (I think Barker) Jodhpurs in bordeaux. The sizing/price is making me hesitate but they do look nice:

    Interesting approach.

    btw, have you ever seen a traditional side-laced shoe, which is quite a different beast? [​IMG]

    CT's in my experience run large to really large. In the chelsea I took a 10.5UK, in the chukka I took an 11UK and I'm a pretty standard 12 US. Hard to say how these would fit without trying on a pair but they definitely look nice.

    Those are 11UK whereas I wear a 12.5D AE #5. Thoughts? I did try the Loake Strand (Tyrwhitt Carence) in a UK12F at the Tyrwhitt store & they were large.

    Except i'm a 12.5D-13. Not too sure an 11F will work, especially after your post.
