    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.

    I agree that they look great! I love their version of the Jodhpur and this leather shade and the 804 last are a great combination!

    Hand welted.

    In that case I would like to propose the following GMTO:

    GG Arran in Tan Kudu
    GG06 last
    Wensum rubber sole
    dark brown welt & laces
    :undecided on lining:

    I'm not usually the conservative last type, but I'm willing to compromise to complete my Arran last collection. What say you gents?

    I don't think I have ever seen an Arran in GG06.

    Anyone who can't afford a G&G chukka be interested in a Carmina GMTO Chukka? Some lighter shade of brown (Natural CXL, Cognac Shell, Tanned Calf etc).

    I believe only 1 person in an E width is needed to get the order going:
    [​IMG]

    Details:
    Order via SkoAB
    Sandringham
    Last: 202
    Chestnut antique
    Double leather sole
    ETA is approximately 4 months
    Price is 7700SEK (which is just under $900 today)

    Anyone else interested? This is almost ready to go.

    It seems like it would be a nice make-up. I wasn't digging the GG06 for the Arran, but it doesn't look bad at all. I would think that double leather would suit it more though.

    I thought that you were going for the GG instead. This is a great choice, but I figured that it wasn't going through.

    I would be willing to consider other sole options if we can get the minimum people needed... :)

    I just think that the idea on sole should be kept open just in case others are interested but caught up on the sole. I'm in the Thorpe Kudu GMTO already so I'm not going to be a part of this, but it is a great idea!
