X-post: Hello guys - just got a letter from Dean - we have been able to secure a small batch of Oak Kudu. Initially we thought we could make about 40 pairs but unfortunately a lot of the Kudu hides were in pretty bad shape so about half was deemed by G&G as not suitable for making shoes by their standards. 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

Gaziano & Girling Thorpe in Oak Kudu GMTO

Hello guys, I’m trying to gauge instrest in the following GMTO:
Gaziano & Girling Thorpe
MH71 last (to be decided)
Dainite Sole with storm welt (to be decided)
Blind eyelets and speed hook
E-width (only one width available for G&G GMTOs)

Basically this style but with a few minor changes and in Oak Kudu (less reddish and a bit darker):


Limited availability - we already have a few requests for single MTOs in Oak Kudu so we're looking at maybe 16 spots or something like that.

For me it's too close to the kudu Thorpe and Isham I've recently binged on. Will sit this one out, I'm afraid. baldy[1].gif
