Ghurka has been around since 1975, with a true focus on quality and timeless craftsmanship. I leans towards almost all black, but the Cavalier II in Indigo and Hunter for Fall 14 are too handsome to ignore. Both have toppled the black vintage leather as the must-have colors for the upcoming fall season.
