    well welll well intersting project you have going on here; am a believer Steveyoo1983 . I will need a last that will accomodate a wide fitting in ant MTO.
    The shells look very appealing!!!!!!! Is the Forest last a wide fit or standard fit??? Willl be interesting if there was a rerun of these saddle shells as well.

    They are definitely wide fit.

    I believe the picture below is member Fiddler's PTB in Cognac Shell (Saddle Shell will be slightly lighter of course)

    Below is Armoury's Longwing in Detroit as well. (we have a Cognac Shell Longwing coming in stock in the next few month as well [​IMG]

    You're killin' me. And yes, the Detroit is a wide-fitting last. More so than Rain, and either equivalent to or slightly wider than Inca.

    Received the Saddle Shell Derby MTO. Could not be happier with these. The soles are oak bark tanned from JR, I wasn't expecting that! Thanks for making this happen, Steve. Apologies for the poor photo quality...

    Edited to add: Yes, they really do look that dark, at least with my indoor lighting. Almost like Cognac shell. With natural lighting, they appear lighter as in Steve's photos.

    Hmm... I think that might jst be a combination of porducman's saddle shell batch being a little darker than others, plus poot inside lighting? Mine & others I've checked are def lighter....here is 'un-instagramed' 'un-edited' photo via my iPhone taken outside the same day
