Since they're 'work boots', tell us what kind of work will they see? I'm guessing a long day of construction, pouring concrete, hanging drywall; dropping heavy things on your toes once an hour. Perhaps they'll be great on the farm, slopping the hogs, kicking farm implements when they break down. Maybe a diesel mechanic, spilling motor oil on them for a quick wipe off, kicking semi tires to eyeball tire inflation. I can only picture the amount of work these will see, and being JR soled and shell, will only look better with pig manure or motor oil slathered on (and in) them.

All in jest of course, I always get a kick out of when Carmina has some of their boots listed as 'work boots', when they're about the furthest thing someone would buy for any of the jobs listed above, and what is traditionally marketed in the US as 'work boots'.

To be fair I’ve just been parachuting in my military cap toe ‘jumpers’...

Atta boy! My days of HALO jumps and fast roping from helos are long behind me. The only jumping my jumpers would get now, is jumping out of an Uber at the curb of the airport.
I’d not jump over a puddle mate! 😂😂
Was a continuation of the theme ye started sir!

beautiful, love that entire country. Love seeing the dark clouds too, we have 320+ days of sunshine a year, and I'm sick of it and would like to see storm clouds and rain for a change
We’ve plenty of rain mate!

that was the Yorkshire Dales, not far off me to be honest.

Good afternoon gentlemen,

I hope you have plans for the weekend.

Now that the custom weekend is over and with no other custom promotions in line. I would like to open up the opportunity of voting and requesting upcoming Private GMTOs.

I have already received some petitions for special leathers etc which I've gathered in a small survey here. Please follow the link to vote for your favourites and feel free to vote for all of them if you find them interesting.

Once we know which GMTO has more votes I'll follow up with colour options, swatches and much more.

We also loved creating a specific model with your suggestions (in reference to the Calway model) and would really enjoy creating some more for you. I've opened a slot for feedback on models you are missing too.
@Carmina Could you please confirm if the Russian calf in the survey means JFJ Baker Russian?

I like the "concept" of a Jumper boot - not so keen on the implementation. I used to wear a parachute hoping I'd never have to use it for realsies.
