    Simpson I think. Anyone notice how many of Carmina's lasts have a slightly bulbous toe? The lasts themselves are sleek and tidy with minimal excess spaces but the toe box is disproportionately tall. It even evident in the profile shot of that Jodhpur boot

    Just have to convince the missus to relocate across the pond... But I'm thinking Brazil would be a better spot for a subsidiary. :)



    We only made this Jodhpur in a very limited series, we did not know how it would be received, so regretfully we don't stock this in UK 11.

    Six pairs is the minimum to avoid a MTO surcharge. If you can gather up five more people and decide on a model, then we have a go.


    I'm having the 80092 on the Forest last made up for myself in Black Calf and i York sole soon. Let me know if you want in. I'm pretty sure they don't have patterns for an Oxford Balmoral boot on the Rain last.

    No, sorry, no Balmorals in black on York or Dainite at the moment although I'm thinking of doing the 80092 Balmoral boot in black for myself as mentioned above.

    I like that Jodphur, but I would have to see them in real-life. This last with nothing going on the shoe itself like a toecap or brogueing might make it look longer than it actually is.
