    Having slept on it, I'd also be open to a contrasting colour / grain on the shaft. In fact, I'd be pretty interested. But also extremely happy with non-contrast all-over vintage oak, or subtle-contrast such as in the picture above. Let's see where @Leaves' option A) goes!

    Im leaning towards option A) as well.

    I'm on the border of E/F width.

    I'd consider any F width option.

    Either one in F

    But you can't tell me a hatch green is not going to be awesome, unique, and also quite versatile if you ask me

    Agreed. I could not possibly say no to that outstanding combo.

    So by my count we have the following interest thus far:

    A) Thorpe in Vintage Oak
    @grc1 - E
    @shaggycalf - F
    @RogerP - F (would also consider option B)
    @Steel28 - E/F borderline
    @Faster - F (equal interest in option B)

    B) Thorpe in Green Hatch
    @Faster - F (equal interest in option A)
    @lartiste - F
    @RogerP - F (would also consider option A)

    Rather looking like option A could potentially be viable in a F width if a couple more of F-company rally round to the cause. But where have all the E-widthers gone??? I'm feeling a bit lonely up on that scoreboard! :puzzled:

    We can add me to the list of VOAK Thorpe in F. So we have 5 interested. Getting close!

    There's a 5% G&G price increase coming March 1st, received the email today. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up. Any GMTOs we want to get off the ground should be completed before this!

    Let's do this!

    I have a feeling this GMTO will get a lot of people.

    Patrick, remind us again of the width gmto rule for GG? Can we mix and match widths in one order?

    The price for a GMTO Thorpe is about €1430 including VAT or $1395 USD for US clients (including taxes, shipping etc).


    All widths need to be consecutive in a GMTO. No exceptions.

    I am E width but I am not interested in VOAK.

    I tried a pair of F width boots in my usually size but these were too big. I am afraid to go a half a size down on F width, the shoes might be too short.
    Hey @Faster can I trouble you to give me a the length of sole on that Thorpe you have in F width?

    Price increase, yikes! Well I got my first G&G incoming in a long time (six, seven years?). St. James II in vintage cherry from Skoak.
