    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    and don't forget about the eventual possibility of the kudu and calf St. James II when Skoak finds out about the shading of both parts. Now that will be a great pair for a GMTO.

    +1. I would include all kind of good loafers too.

    Furthermore 3 pieces lasted shoe trees (like Vass) and hollowed shoe trees (like SC) are a beautiful craftmanship work worth their money, IMO.

    As @Leaves just posted in the Skoak thread he may have something to show us by the end of the week or first part of next week.

    Actually I was hoping there might be another chance to get a Kudu Thorpe.

    After we see the color and plan our st James I'm sure there will be extra if you want a kudu Thorpe in that color if you like it.

    You will just have to wait on leaves first but let's let him take his time so more people can get in on it.

    You could more than likely do an MTO on your own, but it certainly would be nice if there was enough to do two Pre-Orders or GMTOs again.

    If it's only one or very limit kudu left then it's all your brother but if there is gmto then I will join in or if there is enough kudu for all of us the I am game.

    Well I can't imagine that I would want to order another St James Kudu but depending on the availability, interest, and color I might be interested in another Thorpe butt this time in Kudu.

    mw313 are you planning on doing st j kudu gmto or were you in the last one? If there is a gmto I would be interested this is assumption the kudu color is similar to the last one And matchable with clothing easily.

    The color is supposedly different, this is why @Leaves asked G&G to provide him with a color in calf that would work with the new color of Kudu. If I remember correctly the new color of Kudu was like a brick color.

    I would have to imagine this will be another great version. Even though I will probably pass on this St James I can't wait to see what they came up with.

    No, for one thing I wanted to make certain the one I already ordered worked well for me first.
