They will most likely distract everyone from getting any work done!  Maybe you can use them to perform some hypnosis to get what you want. :)  "These are not the shoes you're looking for"

Besides Thorpe is a lot nicer looking boot. LOL

I'm in the same boat/predicament...   Too close to Nevis? maybe not... "texture is different" "style is different".... hmmmm

 

I always thought Nevis was nicer.... but Thorpe has won me on the sex appeal

Personally I think the color and texture make this unique enough that even if it were a Nevis it would be worth thinking about it.

 

 

Heck, I just received my Thorpe in Arran Grain last month and I'm going for the Kudu version.

It's an SF thing.

 

 

If I get in on the Thorpe, this will be my third Kudu.

 

Both is good, three is even better. LOL

All brass eyelets (no speedhooks)
Normal welt (not storm)
Double leather sole (or HAF? Not dainite)
MH71 (but GG06 also ok)

Aint there enough boots out there wth Dainite already?

This make up 

I'm in if this is it

I've said this in other circles; 3 is always better than two. "Twice the fun" is bullshit

Dainite just works if you ask me.

 

It last longer too.

Yeah, sure, we could argue that.. but classic make ups are always better IMO. But FK it, why go for classic anyway

Is the new Kudu (one available now) same as the recent  St James II?

@Leaves posted a picture of a swatch about a page back. I think it might be a bit more brownish in color.

Fair enough, can't argue with that

I don't have winters so my view is skewed, just find leather sole aesthetics more pleasing
