    I don't have a horse in the race but I would think the Isham best suits the material.

    Anybody willing to use Dainite as the sole on the Isham or is this out of the question for most folks?

    the Isham is nice too (i'd still consider being a part of that too) but it is still so similar to the thorpe and we could see some great variety with some of the other shoes like Walkton, St. James II or the monk straps that have been mentioned.

    Love the regency. Isham seems overdone.

    My thoughts exactly about the possible two-tone makeup. Therefore, I am still rooting for Thorpe, although it seems that Isham is gaining bigger momentum.

    I think the majority is leaning towards Isham. But we should have enough for two, possibly three make ups.

    Regarding the Walkton being proposed, I have never handled Kudu so do you think it will handle the style, broguing and medallion well? I found only a picture of a blue lodger boot with medallion/broguing using google.

    Also is Isham going to be MH71 again? How about GG06?

    I think my preference would be for the MH71 on the Isham.

    Isham Proposed MTO

    Specs:
    Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
    Model: Isham
    Color: Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry
    Last: MH71 or GG06
    Sole: Oak Bark Sole

    I think we are close enough that we just need confirmation on widths and presences for Last. I will be out of the net today so please copy and paste when updating your widths and preferences for Last. Also would anybody else be willing to go with a Dainite sole? This however would not kill the deal for me.



    @dddrees E MH71 Dainite if possible
