    Thanks for putting this together. Will look at the different lasts and cast my vote tomorrow.

    Has anyone been able to id the last on this boot:

    Forest or Alcudia are the only two jodphurs listed online but the Alcudia last features the buckle strap we are interested in.

    That appears to be either the Rain or the Simpson last. Notice the soft chisel toe and the slight indentation just before the toe slopes downward toward the end of the shoe. No Rain or Simpson jodphur photos on their website, but here are two suede chelsea boots:

    I suppose this ends up being a question for Mike, which applies to the balmoral as well. With this MTO, are we taking an existing model and simply defining the details or are we able to take a last that doesn't currently feature the makeup we want (using the Carmina website as reference), and build on that?

    For example, with the jodhpur boot, can those who want it specify the Rain or Simpson last with the wrap around buckle fastener that we see on the Alcudia last model?

    Would it be possible to find out what lasts can go to narrower widths? I'd hate to vote for a last and then end up not being able to get the boot in my size.

    Yup, this should be possible in most cases. There's certain styles that can't be done on certain lasts, but that's in the minority. Doing the Jophur on the Rain or Simpson should be no problem. And you should be able to choose either of the strap/buckle configurations.

    BTW: the Rain last is fantastic. I chose it for our Chelsea boot because it strikes a great balance of a comfortable toe shape that's not too pointed and not too blocky. It makes for a great dress/casual style, and I'd totally recommend it for the Jodphur boot. We've had concrete good sizing feedback on it too.

    Cowperwood, I can't recall exactly what last I noted as a preference, but can you please change it to Alcudia or Rain for me as well. I definitely want the buckle like in the Alcudia/Rain photo; not the Forest one. Thanks much.

    thanks. My preference for the last is ultimately dependent on the pic seen here:

    if Mike says its Rain last, then I want Rain last

    Haa, mike is awesome. I can't believe I have yet to purchase anything from Epaulet. This experience has really made me a fan of theirs

    Roman, I don't think I can be your virtual friend anymore. I am shocked you haven't made any purchases from Epaulet. Mike is the best retailer out there and puts out amazing product. His pants and shirts are phenomenal. I can not speak more highly about his customer service. You owe it to yourself to start dropping some coin with Mike; your closet will appreciate it. Promise. HA!

    G, does this mean were not internet friends anymore? to be fair, I wasn't too familiar with the Epaulet brand until the Carmina's dropped. Now I regret having lived all these months without beautiful trousers in my life

    I will change that for you. I think I'll add Rain to the list of lasts. Or maybe just as pictured, with the assumption that we'll figure out what that means. Anyone who feels a need to revise can let me.

    Need to submit my preferences for the Balmoral.
