    I agree. Don't give up on the blue. You seem to be pretty excited about it and it is damn nice.
    My thoughts are; some other color as a fall back if not enough interest in blue or; two jodhpurs.

    My overall preference would be for the jodhpurs in a color besides blue or black. If not enough interest, them I am absolutely on board with the balmoral.
    I know what I want but have some flexibility in order to get this done

    I've filled out the survey. Votes are tentative on final details and of course whether they'll be on a last that will fit.

    Given the comments so far I'd probably lean towards speedhooks on the boot.

    Those look great! Thanks for posting pics. If the navy shell is that dark than I'm in for the jodphur in navy. That's in addition to the Bal Boots

    I agree with everything you said. What I found dumbfounding is the reluctance towards black shell.

    Great pickup! Yes, I meant to point this out - Navy shell varies a bit in tone from skin to skin, but it's typically pretty dark. Here's the special-edition Navy shell Edward Green's that Leffot offered earlier in the year:

    I saw these in person, and they were really just a few shades off black. Navy Shell reads very dark - almost like a midnight blue. It's not a huge difference from black.

    Btw, is the pricing on the jodphur similar to the bal boot?

    I would do the balmoral or the jodphur in brown, but sadly could not afford to do both. I am but a simple retail worker.

    Still, that jodphur would look super sick in deep red!

    according to 1 sizing post in this thread, the Inca last is a very wide, EE last? does that mean the double monks epaulet currently has are wider than a standard D?

    I like the rationale...You only live once, right? :slayer:

    I am definitely in for the blue jodhpur with brown edge.
