Anyone else interested potentially in a dark blue oakham on MH71 as a GMTO?

Lucky for me skin that I would consider as "exotic" is shell and that's more with casual shoes.

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
MH71
Lining color?

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.

I've been dying to get my hands on a pair of thorpes ever since I failed to kop

I'm normal width (D US) and would be willing to get in on a gmto.

This Thorpe might be promising...

Awesome! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Thanks for the interest.

I have two more interested parties that have PM'ed me, so if they are definitely in, we may already have 4 people all who need a standard G&G E width (D width US).

Potentially one more and we are ready to rock. I will keep you posted. Thanks again.

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.

Bonafe, not Carmina
