Can't wait to see them!
If it's any consolation my pair are still in Stockholm, as dark forces have conspired against me!
First the extra delay, and then when they finally did arrive Paypal decided to "investigate" the payment. I think that is sorted now - but the boots are going to be sent to Hong Kong (I live in Beijing - import taxes here are too unpredictable) - and my next business trip there isn't for another 3 weeks! Good in any case to see some of the reports about the boots - I am really looking forward to seeing them.
As a consolation prize though, I'll be in Paris at the start of April on business, and have a free morning so I think you can guess where I'll be going ...
I am new to Carmina and Spanish shoes - tried a on a few pairs back at the Armoury
in HK but didn't pull the trigger.
Is there a SF proxy who can source me Carmina? If not which retailer is the most effective.
I understand Carmina has their own website, anyone had any issues ordering direct from them.
I am based in London and Swizterland -
^ If you are in Switzerland, I believe Brogue in Geneva (www.brogue.ch) caries some Carmina models. Other than that, ordering directly from Carmina is usually the cheapest, if they have the model you want. Also, the prices in their Spanish stores are the same as in the webstore, while the Paris store is a bit more expensive (last time I checked). A couple of affiliates here also sell their shoes: http://skoaktiebolaget.se/tags/carmina, UniPair, Epaulet (besides Armoury, of course).
Thanks everyone - I'll probably try Betty Boo first and get it shipped VAT free to Zurich.
Think I know what I want - but I understand MTO a juicy 30% premium, is this a message
saying they are too busy making lots of RTW shoes or simply we don't want your MTO business?
Farhad, who are Matches - are they UK based?
I never buy anything in Suisse - my hard earned CHF is converted and spent elsewhere.
It's crazily expensive this country. I rarely touch the stuff, but to give you an idea, took
my little nephew to McDonalds for a Big Mac meal and shelled out $17 USD.
My tea and apple pie was $6
