Fellow G&G enthusiasts, I wanted to check and see if we might be able to get a G&G Thorpe Group MTO off the ground. I was inspired by the past two days of pouring rain here in NYC, the amazing recent Thorpe makeups posted upthread, and my own lack of a classy pair of boots that can handle this inclement weather.
I have discussed placing the order through Skoaktibolaget and if we can get 5 participants, we avoid the MTO fees and can take advantage of their very attractive pricing. This boot would be killer and at an awesome price. Definitely post your interest and PM me if you have any questions.
So here are the specs that I was thinking of (and I am obviously willing to hear other thoughts/recommendations to get it off the ground):
Burgundy Highland Grain
Exposed antiqued brass eyelets
Double Dainite with storm welt
Just to whet your appetites, here is the current version of the Thorpe in a country grain that Skoak stocks (which is unavailable in my size):
And here is a swatch of the burgundy highland grain:
Just a friendly reminder, in order to avoid the MTO fee, the first five pairs would have to all have the same width.
That Bonafe seems much too red compared to the G&G swatches I have seen in person. I am going to do some deep googling and see if I can find a good representation of the G&G burgundy highland grain. Edited by CHRK33 - 10/24/14 at 10:11am
