    Hi,Guys.I ordered a Jodphur in Pewter through Skoaktiebolaget last month .The size is UK 6EE (wide) .JL is working on it now and it will be done in 2 or 3 months.Unfortunately, I find it is a little bigger for me rather than 5.5EE.So is anyone just about to buy a Jodphur in 6EE? I can offer a 10% discount.
    Looks just like this. Same color, same size.

    I looked at one today but didn’t want a black pair. I was also struck by how much effort it can be to get on and off. That said, I want one with a leather sole and a brown finish when I can find one that I like. Just an amazing look and piece of work!

    3 summers with them. Not much wear. The leather is fantastic but you better wacth out with salt water due to the construction & materials like the leather insole .
    Bonus track for those lucky guys that are working.

    It is a small beach in the spanish mediterranean sea. Portet de Moraira. A quiet place to enjoy the sea with your kids. No party here.:colgate:

    @Zapasman Mate, those shoes have certainly seen some Summer action! Is it possible to polish out those scratches from that type of leather?

    Yes Nikola. Since long ago my shoe shine/polish rutine has decline considerably. Normally I just brush my shoes (some times I use B4). I am sure that some good care on those and they will look like new. Cheers .

    I have a pair just like them. My leather has done the same thing. Easy to polish but I think I prefer them as they are.

    I just got an email from Paul Wilson that my bespoke shoes are at the JL boutique in Houston!!! I probably won't be able to go look at them until Friday because of work and then won't be able to actually have them in my possession until the weekend after Labor Day though.
