Anyone else think a Thorpe in Chestnut Pin Grain would look sweet? Keep looking for a shoe style that that leather would look great on.
Another Bonafé MTO idea:
Casual boot on the 363 MOD or 804 lasts
Melezze calf (see monkey boot)
Black calf tongue
8-10 brass eyelets
360 Black Norvegese stitching
(Not sure on styling yet)
I used to be put off by the side stitching on the Thorpe. However, after having handled the Thorpe in real life - and now owning the Thorpe - I think it actually adds character. The Thorpe on Dainite is a perfect nominee for various grain leathers from G&G.
