Fellow Skoak loyalists, I wanted to check and see if we might be able to get a G&G Thorpe Group MTO off the ground. I was inspired by the past two days of pouring rain here in NYC and the lack of a classy pair of boots that can handle this inclement weather.
Considering the stock Skoak model was unavailable in my size, I thought let's see if we can do something slightly different. This boot would be killer and at an awesome price. Definitely post your interest and PM me if you have any questions.
So here are the specs that I was thinking of (and I am obviously willing to hear other thoughts/recommendations to get it off the ground):
Burgundy Highland Grain
Exposed antiqued brass eyelets
Double Dainite with storm welt
Just to whet your appetites, here is the current version of the Thorpe in a country grain that Skoak stocks:
And here is a swatch of the burgundy highland grain:
Just a friendly reminder, in order to avoid the MTO fee, the first five pairs would have to all have the same width.
Just a quick status update to see if we can wrangle a few more people over the weekend. Right now, I have three people with confirmed interest in a burgundy highland grain all in the standard E width:
Doing their due diligence (or interested in brown highland grain):
@IGotId (interested in either burgundy or brown highland grain)
@tifosi (brown highland grain ONLY)
I am impressed that we are more than halfway there. If you are interested in joining the Thorpedo, then we can get the ball rolling with Skoak ASAP. Please PM me if you are interested or have any questions.
Also, I have included folks who have voiced interest in the brown highland grain - just in case we need a backup plan (or we can place two orders for both burgundy and brown and make Skoak's day!!).
