From the two pics I saw I actually prefer the tan Kudu.

 

Great choice @rydenfan.

I took the last of Mountain Ram.

From what I recall, the timeline was:

  1. Leaves posted swatches of exotic leathers and people went crazy or kudu and ram but there was only enough Ram for two people.
  2. @NAMOR, @rydenfan both elected to pick up Ram Thorpes.
  3. Somewhere down the line both of them dropped out.
  4. Fast forward months later and leaves posts his St James II in Ram and deep vintage cherry.
  5. People again go crazy over Ram but I messaged Leaves first and asked for Thorpe but was told there was only enough leather for the St James.
  6. rydenfan, the genius he is, points out that my size 6 feet take half as much leather as Leaves.
  7. Today, I own the last of the Mountain Ram, a now extinct leather in the world of luxury boots.

Great choice @rydenfan.

What? You really don't like my Ram? And you helped me design it too :-(.

I think the lighting on the photos is really off. I think in real life the Ram is more redish brown and Kudu is more of a medium brown with an orange tint according to previous photos. Otherwise if they look so similar I may have to get rid of one since I ordered one of each.

From the photos I see here I prefer the smoother texture of the Kudu. However I look forward to your photos because Skoaks lighting often tends to wash out the actual color. I've got a feeling the color will look much better in real person and that may very well make a big difference.

Can anyone recommend the cheapest place for Gaziano & Girling shoe trees? It looks like G&G took the list of their stockists off their website.

Made to Order Paris won't sell them separately and Leffot hasn't replied to my e-mail enquiry I sent a few days ago. And the Canadian dollar is faring poorly against the Pound sterling so UK based retailers are out unless it's on sale.
