    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.

    Looks like Thorpe in rosewood kudu is odds-on favourite to break the GMTO threshold, but if I'm not mistaken Isham might also be a contender? (fingers crossed!)

    No Thorpe because of the current GMTO kudu Thorpe but I'm interested in other two tone shoes like the St. James or the walkton in the vintage cherry and kudu like dean showed you. . Both would be amazing especially on the MH71 or TG73

    The Walkton has to be DG70 IMO, the wingtip screams for the rounded toe...

    But most in here seem to orefer Mh71 and TG73, including me. I have a Canterbury on the DG70 which looks great but the fit isn't the same due to the toe shape.

    I wonder if the table could even be pulled off with the cherry and kudu. That could be sometching really unique.

    I think a calf leather but with the strap in croc or gator would be much nicer for the jodhpurs

    Looking through the non-binding expressions of interest so far, I see:

    Thorpe:
    @NewStart
    @Pbayvip
    @TtownMD
    @Steel28
    @OREO (speed hooks)
    @dddrees (no speed hooks)

    Isham:
    @JubeiSpiegel
    @grc1
    @whyriver
    @rydenfan (colour too close to EG rosewood?)
    @dddrees (too reddish?)
    @daizawaguy

    Two-tone: Walkton / St James
    @mw313
    @TtownMD
    @Steel28
    @Ironist
    @laufer
    @JubeiSpiegel

    Tavistock
    @JubeiSpiegel
    @TtownMD

    Other
    @nickrut (anything except Thorpe or Isham)
    @rydenfan (Wells or Glencoe)
    @daizawaguy (Hove)

    Are we starting to build critical mass around some projects yet, gents?

    Sounds good so far but I also suggested gable in two tone If that gets anyone's interest for a more unusual setup.

    The Gable is essentially a wholecut, I'm not sure how a two tone would work...

    Yea I guess it is to a point so that may not work unless it would be layered which would throw off proportions. Good call so scratch that. Haha
