I have just learnt that G&G are open to do a group MTO of a Thorpe in a somewhat lighter Kudu, one called Dakota:

Something for you?

According to Nick at G&G they can make 6 pairs of Thorpes in that particular Kudu from A&A Crack&Sons, maybe more.

I can make a new thread for this GMTO if more are interested and if it's okay by StyleForum.

I'm thinking all eyelets (blind or metal), MH71 last in E width, dainite sole (I see quite a bit of winter) and probably storm welt.

For Pearl grey...I think a Wigmore on DG70 with broguing at the V seam and a PCT would look gorgeous. Maybe even grey suede above the seam.

Now, I think that will make a nice color.​

Today I have question for The G&G Pig Owners' Club: how has the pigskin that they use held up? I've taken an interest in the pigskin that A.A. Crack offers, and I take it that G&G use it...but their site reads that it's mainly used for linings. How does it wear?

Holdens are in. Vintage chestnut with navy lining.

Officially, my favourite shoes among favourites.


My best shoes yet (Click to show)


I knew my voak Mitchells were due for some TLC when I put them on this morning, but damn if they don't look FUBAR in comparison ...

@grc1 You are now officially driving me crazy :)

Congratulations what a pair and wear them in good health Sir !

Kudu vs mountain ram. Which would you prefer? I'll post my thoughts and better photos later. Too much overlap for me though
post #18400 of 21772

Both boots are outstanding, however Kudu is cleaner for that kind of boot (I rather use Mountain Ram for a more casual/sturdy boot).  Good choice those blind eyelets for the Thorpe IMO.

 

You lucky man.:nodding:

I am officially jealous @grc1

Congratulations! Great shoes

Ironist I would keep mountain ram personally & yes too much overlap but both are outstanding boots.

I prefer the one on the left - guess that's the kudu? Cleaner look.
