    I've never had any rain lasted shoes before, think it feels looser as the vamp area is a little higher than optimal for me. I only slipped one shoe on for 30 seconds so not fully sure of fit yet

    Anyone up for that loafer in loden shell rather than navy? If not, I may go in for the navy. Stunning.

    Its been mentioned that people are interested in a green loden suede and/or a navy shell loafer. I heard that navy shell may be difficult to find these days.

    Think I would prefer suede for the loafers but loden shell is tempting




    Thanks!

    Cross post from Carmina thread:

    I received the navy shell Jodhpurs today. They fit more or less the same as my other Rain lasted shoes, so I'm very happy with that, as the Rain last might be the best fitting last for me from any brand. I think the boots look spectacular (as seen from stevent's pictures), and the navy shell looks as great as I imagined. Very happy with the purchase. As a first time Jodhpur boot owner, I am a bit concerned about the longevity of the strap, but hopefully it's nothing I have to worry about for a long time.

    Needed to replace an older pair of conservative black cap toes, so I got these from Steve. My only question is there appears to be an faint indentation line in the toe cap. It's most visible on the left shoe, but exists on both. I could probably live with it as is, but would not want it to get any worse. Looking for thoughts on whether this is acceptable or not.

    I can spot it on both. I think it might be the toe cap reinforcement or stiffener. I had a pair if boots that did the same. I always just an intentional part of the construction.

    Yes, that was my thought as well as this seems to be the point where the toe cap stiffener ends. Just want to make sure I'm not missing something that is going to be a problem in the future.

    I think Steven has some loden shell if im not mistaken. If its true Steven can you talk about color and what you think of it as a loafer?
