To my understanding, leather sole is considered more breathable than rubber? I joined the forum to partake in GMTO. Thanks to all for putting in the effort of creating mockups. :)

Good question, i think @stevent commented on it some months back, but maybe a longterm update would be helpful? Softer or tougher than highland grain i wonder...

Welcome to the forum, which GMTO are you interested in, to add you to the list.

You ask a good question, but i do not have the heart (or knowledge) to try to answer your leather question. Best to let sleeping dogs lie on that one...lol

Thanks Jubei! I defer to the experts on the topic, history and experience always favor a more educated answer. The Isham and Regency Monk in Rosewood Kudu spark my interest on GMTO. I'm also intrigued by the idea of a Regency Monk in Pearl Grey, although I'm not sure of the interest by other members.

Isham Proposed GMTO

 

Almost there people. It appears as we only need 1 more confirmed E and we'll also need to make a final decision on the sole soonas well.

 

Specs:
Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
Model: Isham

Color: Rosewood Kudu
Last: MH71
Sole: Double Leather Oak Bark Sole or Double Dainite still to be determined (Only one @daizawaguy against Dainite)
 

@justinkapur Depends on stifness of material Dainite

@harki E Dainite

@dddrees E Dainite

@mw313 narrow Double Leather

@grc1 E Dainite

@whyriver E Dainite

@daizawaguy E Double Leather

@JubeiSpiegel Double Leather

@bumblebee E Dainite

Width and sole preference?

There are those that would argue with you on this.

 

lolololol

Dainite is fine with me. Depending on the stiffness of the material will determine what width I go with

I'm still interested but remember I'm a super narrow width and I prefer the double leather over the dainite to give the thickness it needs but still give that great leather sole feel that GG gives.
