Still, a deco Thorpe/Isham - were it even possible (and as far as I know it isn't) - is a step too far for me. Too much of a clash of style between the sharp deco lines and the casual-to-rugged aesthetics of the Thorpe for my taste.

But a Thorpe or Isham on the MH71 would definitely be of interest.

I would certainly advise you to do it. I think the Thorpe really works well on this Last. I'll actually have both of these, that is when my Ishams get here.

Agree - I have 2 Thorpes already, and the kudu Isham GMTO is on order, all on the MH71. Given they aren't decos (so have broader appeal among the SF crowd) and the derby lacing is more forgiving of a high instep, I've been happy to source them either directly from G&G stock or wait until there's a GMTO. I think that strategy will continue.

Agreed, and I actually have my second Thopre on the way. The Kudu version of the Isham and Thorpe were just too hard to resist.

That's awesome. I only wish I could have done both.

Just came back from the Savile Row store having pulling the trigger on a couple (you guessed it) decos. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

There was a question a couple days ago about the difference in hue between mink suede and mole suede. I said I'd check, so in the picture below you have a mole suede Hollham on the right, a mink suede St. James on the left.

I'm sorry we'll miss each other! (My wallet isn't, though - I have a feeling we'd completely enable each other lol8[1].gif)

Just ordered a pair of Holdens in mink suede.

And spent way too much time trying to decide a Gatsby combo (a first of many - that model is pure sex). Finally settled on a vintage cedar calf/fox suede combo. Can't wait to see how it turns out! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Ha - I heard you loud and clear! My bank account is now rather a few pounds lighter, and I can't wait to see the result. wink.gif

@TtownMD When will you be posting pics of your Gatsbys in the wild? It took all my willpower not to order the same black/pearl grey combo this morning and go in a different direction. But that makeup is fantastic and it's only a matter of time before I get it. It's inevitable.

A bit of cream and some expert TLC from Max at the Savile Row store. My St. James IIs and Holdens are back in the game!
