that's a jodhpur? last looks really aggressive, definitely too narrow for me but looks good, is that actual museum or it's a patina job?

Yes, it is a Jodhpur. Good eye. I assume they did not send me a pic of the whole shebang as it is not ready. It is a patina job. The last is indeed aggressive, which is my reason for commissioning it. I would never be able to find that type of last for my wide but not overly long feet in RTW.

They fit like a second skin. But there are still some minor issues to be fixed. The straps are so short I cannot buckle it and there is some leather bunching in the left shoe, so I will pick up the final product next week.
