They were a re-stock of the one Skoak had. Antique Edwardian, natural color single sole.
Some of the order came in a few months ago and some like mine were rejected and had to be re-made.
Yeah, I lean to the dressier side when it comes to shoes/boots (I don't own any bluchers/derbies in shoes, though I know I should according to the rules for my sportcoats/odd trousers). I will say that the Galway (or similar) is the exception: that will get done in at least two different make-ups at some point.
that will be great to see once you get samples!
I chose to participate on the first Thorpe Pre-Order of the year. It was the one in Arran Rustic Grain. A repeat from last year bit with speed hooks. At the time of the Pre-Order the ETA was Aug 15. The Thorpe Kudu Pre-Order took place shortly there afterwards and to be honest two Pre-Orders for the same boot even if different leathers was a bit much for me. After all we arent talking Galway here. LOL
Besides since the Kudu St James Pre-Order came out later I was then able to get my Kudu shoe in the long run. The Kudu I didn't get that I still regret a little bit is the Isham that I missed last year.
