    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Just ordered the Jodhpur II in Bavarian calf via the Zonkey website.

    I'll keep you all updated as to the service and will of course post photos once they arrive.

    Thanks to @KSunnyH for his review and PMs which helped enormously.

    For reference I ordered 7E which is what Alexandra advised and every review seems to suggest based on my G&G/EG sizing (also 7E).

    Five days later and 7.30 this morning a rather interesting package arrives.

    Extremely well packaged as you see. It is amazing how these have come from Austria and the box has less damage than the ones received from within the UK.

    Here they are. Money well spent and worth every penny. Glad I ordered the 7E (7F in European sizes) as they are spot on - nice and snug but also spacious (not quite sure how they have managed that) and they are so light and clearly a well constructed item.

    Definitely more purchases going Zonkey's way. First class.

    I too could be interested in this now that I have worn my Jodhpurs a few times and am happy with the fit of the Sailor last.

    I seem to recall we were talking Vibram sole with Norvegese welt. What leather and finish was suggested?

    Unfortunately our GMTO was put into production a few weeks ago, but you two should contact Alexandra and see what your options are.

    Ah - no worries. I have been contemplating the wholecut derby but am still undecided on leather and colour.

    Update the thread once they arrive as I will be very interested to see how they turn out. [​IMG]

    Hey fella's, with summer just around the corner I'm thinking I need a nice pair of casual Zonkey's. I've put in an inquiry with Alexandra about their moccasin. I'm checking to see if any of you are interested in hopping in on a GMTO.

    Zonkey Boot moccasins sewn by hand on the Walker last. The uppers are made from deer leather, lined with calf leather. Blake-stitched leather soles. (ZB 023)"

    According to Alexandra, most customers with what would be considered normal feet wear the same size in the walker last as they do in all of the othe Zonkey lasts.

    Here is the shoe in question.
    [​IMG].

    And here is the swatch of their deer skin; which this shoe comes in. I'm partial to 160 or 520. But am open to what a group might decide on.

    They are stunning! I must admit I didn't expect the wholecut derby to suit the Norvegese welt as well as it does with it the boot being such a clean design but it works very well indeed.

    I wish I had determined my size prior to your GMTO ending.

    You need at least 3 people per makeup to qualify as a GMTO. For other details, I encourage you to ask Alexandra herself via the shop e-mail.

    My first pair of suede shoes and my second pair of Zonkeys. Such good quality as expected.
