    Sometimes we get caught up in Virgin Mountain Goat leather and forget about the classics. Well done!

    To be fair, I don't think I have a horse in this race. I think I would need a G width for GG, so I'm more or less out.

    Edit: Mehh, probably oxblood. Oxblood is a nice deep shade.

    A lot more appropriate for that style of boot in my opinion as well.

    God I love a smooth-leather Thorpe ... :inlove:

    Count me in for a GMTO. E-width. Open to all suggestions as long as it's a smooth leather and MH71 last.

    Have you seen the smooth leather Thorpe with hatch grain shaft (above the crescent stitch) ? It should be on the Bespoke England tumblr.

    I'd go for green hatch grain Thorpe. GG06 F would be my preference

    Pretty sweet. This would do it for me. Or all-smooth. Colour-wise, not personally feeling a green or blue Thorpe.

    So we have two possible make ups that are potential GMTOs that seem likely to gain followers.

    A) Thorpe in Vintage Oak in E
    B) Thorpe in Green Hatch in F

    Let's do an interest check! Too long since we got a GMTO started in here.
