    I'm curious about the fitting. Do you specify (or pick among a selection of) a last and size, knowing that it fits you well, or is it something else?

    I was told that it fits exactly like the EG 202 last.

    £355 for MTO Balmoral boots? If he's making them on the equivalent of the 202 last I've finally found my pair.

    If he'll make them, that is.

    The maker's email address is cliff.roberts7 [at] ntlworld [dot] com. His name is Cliff Roberts.

    Here is his description of the last. I am waiting to hear back about whether he has all popular sizes.

    Amnon, is shipping to the US included in that price?

    Does he do good year welt?

    What is estimated time from start to finish?

    What color leathers does he have access to?

    Thanks

    Amnon, is shipping to the US included in that price? Does he do good year welt? * Looks like it to me. What is estimated time from start to finish? *It takes six weeks on average. I ordered mine on January 28 and they will be finished on April 3rd. It could be that they took a bit longer since he cut an original pattern for me. What color leathers does he have access to? *Dunno. I told him what I wanted and he did it. Thanks

    Wow! Great find and thanks for posting the process!

    Are Balmoral boots his specialty or can he also do Jodphurs?
