    Cannot believe I am about to say this but after following this thread I "may" prefer the thorpe to the Nevis.

    For now I'm leaning towards the Thorpe as well.

    I can't remember exactly when they were stopped, but they were halted after the Nevis GMTO went through.

    At this point I'd rather get the lighter colored Thorpe.

    it probably would be easier to just have someone post the pictures of each one in contention and then people can vote here.

    Shocked. :wow: you're kidding, there was a month long window to pay for it and @dddrees was spamming the gmto nonstop during that time so it's not like you didn't get the memo. This would never happen to a real boot fan :stirpot:

    I like to think of it not as spamming but advertising. LOL



    Besides in the end isn't this the reason the Mahogany CC Nevis was able to get the remaining numbers to become a reality?

    That major difference between the Nevis amd Thorpe is the just the shape of the apron correct? Aside from the obvious difference in lasts.

    I prefer the Thorpe. For me it's the additional stitching on the sides that really make it for me

    I tens to agree with you on this one, GG sizes like EG? I also think I prefer the blind eyelets, they do GMTO correct. Sorry for all the ?s I haven't really considered GG seriously as generally their aesthetics are too forward for me.
