I'm in for the hatchgrain wholecuts on the proviso that they,
A) Use a chisel toe last,
B) Have a low/squeezed toe box, and
C) Make the foot shape symmetrical
Pretty much the photo shown by Terrorsquad to highlight the leather is the perfect execution of hatch grain.
No point using a "loud" skin and dulling it by using a round toe or some brouging.
