Thanks! The U isn't the perfect last for me since the instep in high but the high closure of the chukka makes it work. I still want to try the Arran though although I'm not a big fan of the unlined ankle portion (although I know it helps with flexibility).

You don't happen to have any aditional pics of that pair by any chance?

Vass museum chukka
If you want something specific let me know and I'll try to take some later.

So has anyone had to resole their G&G's yet? I'm curious to see before and after pics!

You may want to ask this guy. Not sure if he has before photos though:

Before pic would more or less have been similar to this:



Resoled - like brand new:

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.

Friends, just a quick Monday evening update - I have gotten a couple of requests for brown highland grain instead and if that is what it takes to get this off the ground, I would be happy to go with brown highland grain as well. My preference is still burgundy, but hoping we can get five for either burgundy or brown before the end of the week. Fingers crossed.

Interested in burgundy highland grain in the standard E width:

Myself (chrk33) (confirmed)
@ikaika122 (confirmed)
@Nullson (confirmed)
@rydenfan (diligence)
@KenRose (diligence)

Interest in Brown highland grain in the standard E width:

Myself (chrk33) (confirmed)
@ikaika122 (confirmed)
@IGotId (diligence)
@rydenfan (diligence)
@tifosi (diligence)


If we can just flip only two of those members who are in the diligence stage for the burgundy highland grain, we will be ready to roll. If you are interested in joining the Thorpedo, then we can get the ball rolling with Skoak ASAP. Please PM me if you are interested or have any questions.
