I will probably visit them first and see them in person before ordering

Thank you!

- Natural Kudu (pictured below)

 

 

Sweet, I prefer dainite sole. How many more do we need?

While I appreciate being considered the main Detroit last booster, I'm not a fan of this kind of Kudu that Carnina uses, so I'll be sitting out.

Now if we start talking suede chukkas on Detroit, you have my attention. smile.gif

Here is a photo of brown kudu, but I'm ok with either makeup.

Sorry I will have to pass. Somethings have changed on my end and it isn't a good time. Good luck!

For the sole, how about the Brick Red dainite? It has been discussed at least two year ago when I joint the Loden Suede PTB which was not available at that time.

 

If still not available, victory sole?

Almost an oxy-moron, no? It's not a pretty leather for an elegant pair.

 

Surprised nobody has talked about a Chelsea boot done up in llama. Seems like a sweet pair.

You might want to look around a little

I am under the impression that the kudu in these pics on G&G shoes is different from what carmina is offering through @steveyoo1983

Can someone confirm pls, especially if you have kudu on both G&G and carmina? Thanks!

They're quite different

I am not sure if you are referring to my post? If so, I am responding to the portion of sac's quote that referred to oxymoron. There are elegant Kudu shoes/boots, although they may be made of different version of Kudu leather.

I cannot comment on Steve's ability to acquire such leather.
post #7304 of 7558

The kudu that G&G uses is from the now defunct Pebody tannery in Northampton. 

The only other maker I know that has access to this particular leather (antelope), with this particular and specific grain pattern, in this particular tannage, is Antonio Meccariello. 

There is no further ability to acquire this leather unless you already have it on hand. 

Carmina's "kudu" is totally different. 

That being said, I don't think you can make an elegant pair of dress shoes with this leather. Whatever the makeup, it will be casual, no doubt about it. 

Then again, I suppose different people have very different definitions of "elegant".
