So we're looking at a limited run here for about 20 pairs.

This is how Oak Kudu looks like (Vintage Oak in the background):


Let me know your thoughts for GMTOs or single MTOs! biggrin.gif

Oh my, I'm imaging this oak kudu in Connaught MTOs...

If that's the case you might want to act fairly soon.​

Still debating just because I have dark oak from EG & kudu that are coming in are also very close in color. And up to this point trying to avoid similar color as possible.

Understand, but do you have a split toe boot yet?

Ah hell, I have tons of brown boots. For me that hasn't been much of a concern as most of them are fairly different with regards to types of leather or design.

 

 

Besides being a split toe with a hand sewn apron, this brown wouldn't be your normal every day brown boot. The Last, the split toe, the hand sewn apron, and the Kudu will set this boot apart from all the others.

This would be also very good make up no doubt.

Thorpe in pearl grey or rioja anyone?
post #18390 of 21772
I personally would say Rioja would be better choice for thrope vs pearl grey.
