    Speaking of exotics, here are most of the G&G exotics. Some of these are available in other colors than those posted, but I did not have time to post them all. Left out the usual suspects like 'gator and stingray, you've all seen those.

    DAMN! some of those are incredible...

    I think I need a Taupe Kudu or Mountain Ram makeup. I love that mocha ostrich too but not sure how I would integrate it

    Let the brainstorming begin. Isham in either would be stellar.


    Wonder how expensive these get...

    I would also love a more casual Burnham but not sure that would get a lot of traction

    I can't remember if the G&G whole cut in black stingray ever got going? I recall a GMTO getting very close to fruition quite some time ago, but I don't know if it went all the way. I find the black stingray offered by G&G extremely nice in a pimp kind of way...

    I was quite impressed with the suppleness and texture of GG's highland grain, the best feeling grain leather in GG's swatch book IMO. So i would be very interested in EG country calf or GG highland grain offerings in the future...

    All right, I really want to jump on the Bonafe GMTO but am stuck on what size to order. Any last advice? Typically a 7.5 UK including a 7.5 on the AS 348 last. Should I stick with 7.5 or drop down to a 7 since the last on this Bonafe is roomy? I would not be so hesitant except that I don't believe I can return a mto shoe...

    Please e-mail us for fitting advice, we will help you as best we can. Luckily the 946 last is the easiest Bonafè last to fit if you are thinking about the GMTO.

    I'm in for a Kudu Isham.

    I could not help myself last time I saw Tony, ordered a Mountain Ram with matching calf St James II. Been drooling over a wonderful GC Adelaide I saw over on Leathersoul's site a few years back and when Tony told me about Ram being in stock I just had to do it... I'm not usually into dandy styles, but... maybe I'm having a mid life crisis. :)

    Thanks. I actually did and Gabriel was great in recommending a half size less than usual. But, I also saw a lot of opinions from folks on here in regards to the rain last indicating that plenty of them just stuck with their normal size. So, I am stuck in a little bit of a quandary in deciding whether to pull the trigger.
