I've seen that too and I was wondering why. You can tell by looking at it that it can't be Kudu.

Yes, well, that said, the Bureau Belfast has been consistently describing it incorrectly as antelope leather for years.  I think, at this point, that we are turning this discussion into a thread hijack, though, and should probably stop.

I have to get in on this party, I would hate myself if I let the kudus pass me by. Put me down for 9.5 e with speed hooks.
post #11225 of 23726

with that E width, we are almost there. What is the current tally? 

 

So are we good for speed hooks then?

post #11226 of 23726
OK for speed hooks

How supple and comfortable is it compared to a suede, hatch, or highland grain? Does it take polish and cream like calf leather?

I'd be curious to know the answers as well.

there probably is a thread for special leathers like kudu.

We have 6 E. This GMTO a go. It seems a lot of people want speed, I personally prefer blind eyelets and I think NAMOR does too but it's not a sticking point. FYI, I heard someone say their speedhooks fell off their thorpes before. As far as lining is concerned, a couple people want green lining and everyone else is silent so I'm going to leave it open. I'm going to hand this over to @Skoaktiebolaget and let them take care of the rest. Thanks guys.

id prefer blind but ill be willing to give that up for speedhooks if we can get green lining (does G&G offer green lining?)
post #11231 of 23726
Going for both kudu and mountain ram thorpe? Bravo. That seems like a lot of overlap to me

lol, I know. I'm kind of debating... I'm not sure how similar or different they are to have both.

Feels to me like in any instance you would wear one you would/could also wear the other. I'm not one to talk as I have plenty of overlap in my collection but I'd probably pass
