    slight contrast on a tan suede yes, that's why I mentioned peccary ( in my head peccary is a shade darker )

    I've seen a chocolate suede / gator done by Zonkey and it turned out really well, very clean with no shout
    but dk brown ostrich or bullfrog could work too

    Does no one want the Antibes? I mean I think it would be sharp in suede and some sort of exotic combo. Or am I being crazy?

    Doesn't look like the normal midnight blue. But looks beautiful.

    Yes sir I would agree with you on that one by the way did you pull the trigger on pearl grey? Or skipped it thinking they will have purple effect.

    I'd probably participate in the antibes one. Still need to verify price as any gator has a pretty solid upcharge.

    Anyone game for a GMTO for gable in deco last in racing green or navy ? I am not fussed about pattern - would also be open to Hanly, Warwick or Connaught.

    This modified gable below would be sweet.

    I've narrowed minez down to GG St. Thomas, a modified standard by St C and one Bestetti has for the loafer
    Eventually something is going to get done in pig

    @Leaves can we get a quote on this potential GMTO?

    I have been trying to get that one going for months, i'm sure it's not going to happen. Not enough interest in a staple that most people probably already have from another maker (like C&J) i suspect...

    What last does the GG loafer fit like? MH71? or the TG73?

    I would guess MH71, but I don't have first hand experience to verify that. Maybe a GG loafer aficionado can help?

    fairly similar to MH but nothing like the TG. KN has a somewhat more tapered toe box than MH
