You may be right I don't know much about it accept it cost very less compare to G&G but it could be other factors not really kudu

I think that anything besides calf and suede is considered exotic. I have heard some people even call shell cordovan (crup) exotic even though I feel that shell isn't. Plus as far as I know the kudu they use should come from Africa and that is exotic in a way by location alone.

Don't forget it is Alden too. They are much less than GG in the first place but a good way to check on exotics is the price compared to normal leather prices for a brand. There is a premium for Kudu

Fair enough makes sense by the way you up for gmto jodhpur boot with gator straps? through G&G?

Thought I would post here as well. I have officially decided to let my new G&G Arran Grain Thorpe's go. They are gorgeous but too close to my Ishams especially since I would like to add a St. James to my rotation. Shoot me a PM if anyone is interested in a UK 7.5 F Width. These are so new that they have not even been tried on...

Yes I'd love them but we need to wait a few months because I need to get in a few of the pairs I have on order to see if the fit on the new and more narrow last is good enough yet. For a Jodhpur on a narrow foot the fit needs to be a good as I can get it.

What last are you thinking? We can start to work in some of the details if you want but unjust need some time for now. I really want to work on that one though. I think that DDD and I have been talking about it for over a year now when we spoke about the JL pair that we showed you.

Sorry to hear that. Which Ishams do you have? Kudu? If so mind posting some comparison?

Hey after seeing what is going on with the Walkton and seeing what we are doing with it (in the extra post with examples of what we are doing but with other leather and reverse setup of the two tone) are you definitely out? I just want to update the list.

Bud I am not really all that picky person & long as you guys are not doing out there shoes etc but that's not the case with you & other gents. So I am down with G&G jodhpur but we can add gator to wrap around the boots. But whatever you guys come up with is fine too. I looked into JL jodhpur & got a quote for 3500$ which is little crazy. So I backed out of it & got my money back I will ask nick for a price.

Yea that would be great and I'm sure with either Nick or Skoak we can get something great! We probably can even just speak with Gabriel or Patrik to see what options for croc vs gator for the strap and the look for some great color combos of the calf for the boot. But we can take some time on it. We need to make sure that we all have some great fits before jumping on it. The pricing should be substantially less and we may even be able to get a GMTO if we spend the time on it too.

For now the Walkton should be the priority since we are only one person away from having 6 in the F width in the TG73 so we can just add the rest of us as the other widths.

No problem I just wanted to make sure since I explained the way we were doing it with that last and how the two tone would look. I'll make sure to take you off the list then.

Thanks

Yea I would think either TG73 or MH71. I have one boot n the DG70 and am not a huge fan and don't have interest in such a round one like the GG06. Maybe even a deco could be an option but I love both TG73 and MH71.
