Are we starting to build critical mass around some projects yet, gents?

Thank you sir.

This would be very nice also

Gable would be strong, might by my number 1 pick if it could be done.

We could do a double monk w the monk strap made of the kudu.
post #17104 of 21771
I think a single leather kudu is as discrete as it gets as the leather is already accentuated in colour and texture. Two tone would be too gaudy. Isham Isham!

I would be down for St. James two tone but only if it's TG73.

Isham, and yes it is.

What are the deets on the Thorpe?
post #17110 of 21771
Thorpes are too much material. Lol

Nobody has actually specified anything except Kudu with one wanting speed hooks and one not wanting speed hooks.
post #17112 of 21771
Wow. I'm already in on the kudu/cedar and pearl grey St James, but these will be off the hook. I'm 99% in on that makeup. However, I may be in for Thorpe or something else too just for variety. It's an amazing looking leather... I love the combo though.

the monks are a great idea too, but it will be much tougher to make shoes in only the kudu because there is only so much in the first place.

i agree that is a lot of material for having so many people interested in pairs. shoes would make more sense, and having two tone pairs can give enough material for many more.

Okay - thanks - and the powers that be can count me as interested in seeing the details when they crystalize.  Not a deal-breaker either way for me, but speed hooks make a lot of sense on a tall boot, particularly a tall derby boot.
