If there are enough just in the E width than can anyone else of different widths, like my narrow, get in for the same price?

I'm interested but think that speed hooks at the top would be nice too!

Ishams and Thorpes are too close to have both right? Haha. Feeling left out.


Leaves - any word on the gmto button boots?

Yes, once we get one more in E Width the Thorpe I can hand this off to @Leaves and he'll probably ask you guys to email sales@skoaktiebolaget.se with your size and width.

When we get the 6 confirmed Patrick will open up a pre-order GMTO link on the website for the Thorpe for 50% deposit (you pay shipping at purchase but it is deducted when you make the final payment). You can then specify your non E-width in the comment box and if you want shoe trees for 1440 SEK ex VAT extra.

You can tell I've done this a lot biggrin.gif.

I note that you shoes go up to UK 12.  Do you at some point intend to carry any UK 13 sizes in your regular stock?  Thanks


They don't carry them in but can order them. They have done that for me in even larger sizes for EB and EG. As long as the shoemaker has a last, Skoak can order them as an MTO and possibly even in other ways depending on the style and brand.

Thanks and I know that it has been done many times, but I've never been a part of them due to my big size and narrow width. It has taken so long to really work out the specific sizes I need in each brand, but have been a "fun" experience. I think I am close for the width/size combo, but I can talk with the Skoak guys at that point, if this all works out. 

 

So this is your plan, right:

 

Tan Kudu
Thorpe
MH71
Storm welt
Double Dainite
All eyelets or Speed hooks - Open
Lining - Open

 

I like the idea of the storm welt to add some bulk to the MH71, which seems like it will go well with the Tan Kudu!

 

What is the double Dainite vs the regular? Do you have any picture examples. Is the double really bulky?

 

Have you decided on all eyelets or with speed hooks? I think some speed hooks at the top could really make things easier, and since it is a more casual version of the Thorpe, they probably would look nicer as well. 

 

​What about the lining? Any thoughts on colors yet? I figured that since it is such a special leather, we might want some type of different lining. It doesn't need to be anything crazy, but would be nice to try something out. I'm open to anything on that part.

Definitely let us know what single would cost to compare to the GMTO Thorpe.

Yes, I've worn my CC Alderleys with heavy flannel suits on some stormy days. Mostly wear them like this though: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have Alderleys in Mahogany CC. I can see myself ordering the Rosewoods on top. I must be infected...

it sounds like the first sign of infection! I started to suspect the infection after buying a 2nd pair shortly after the first!
