    A shoe in with grey trousers I figure (pun intended). Or in any scenario I would wear black shoes. My style is more casual, not to many suits in my lineup...

    So, Jubei, what will you pair yours with? I'm having difficulties as this sculpted last is a dressy one but the large-scale grain is a country leather.

    Reminds me how much I love midnight blue.

    Also, that stingray sinatra is sick! Does stingray have any longevity/durability issues?

    Have a look at Isham too if you like Hove, Isham is an underestimated GG model IMO.

    With the limited occasions stingray shoes could be worn, I highly doubt durability would be an issue.

    On the flip side, rock stars wearing stingrays could afford many pairs.

    This is Styleforum. We are all rock stars in our own firmament, and "afford" is a term long banished from our collective lexicon.

    Any interest in a GMTO on something (very) similar to these?

    I am trying to get a GMTO going for a burgundy highland grain Thorpe going with very similar specs going if you are interested. We have 4 confirmed people that are interested so you would be our fifth if you want in. And we would be off to the races. Let me know.

    I was in the GG shop today and saw the highland grains in the flesh. I was expecting to think the browns would be more interesting, but the burgundy is by far the most stunning. Very dark (may be the lighting and sample), but was fabulous.

    Went to EG to see their equivalent hatch and GG wins hands down.

    Let me know what specs you are going for - definitely interested

    Awesome - glad to hear it. These are the specs we are considering:

    Burgundy Highland Grain
    Exposed antiqued brass eyelets
    Double Dainite with storm welt
    MH71
    Lining color?

    How does that strike you?

    I would definitely prefer the hatch grain over the highland grain. I also like the look of the GG06 on this model - though I love the MH71 on most other models. It gives the boot a less refined look, which works well IMHO - particularly with the Ridgeway

    I think it's probably too much compromise for me with the specs - though I have no doubt it will look great

    Anyone else up for something more directly aligned to the VRaivio original?
