Please PM me if interested! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Skoak has confirmed the price is going to be 4480 SEK ex VAT (about $669 USD). I believe shipping is 300 SEK, so that would bring the total to around $712 USD.

Then question is not whether it looks good - I.e. everything matches. The question is whether it is appropriate. Yes, zthe shoes may (or may not) ook good with a navy suit for a retailer trying to sell the suit and shoes. But it would look out of place, for example, for them president of the United States to wear those shoes with a navy or other dark suit or for a lawyer to wear those shoes to court with a navy suit. The soles of those shoes are on the casual, not the dressy, side and the color is too light - too much contrast - for a dressy situation. Context is important too. Creative types in a creative field dress more casually than accountants.


ersonally, I do not like that caramel color with navy or black. Maybe charcoal, but probably not. But that is preference

Yes - please include last info - the burgundy Chukka is very appealing, but last choice is critical.

Current Epaulet Carmina MTO Projects

Hey guys,

Here's a quick cross-post of styles that we have on order in our Streetwear & Denim thread. If you have any questions or need any advice, please feel free to PM or email me at anytime.

First off, we're running a Carmina version of a John Lobb WWII-era Field Boot. It will be made on the Oscar last, and it's being offered in three different leathers:


Brown Hatch Grain WWII Field Boot Special Order


Cognac Shell Cordovan WWII Field Boot Special Order


Hand-Burnished Scotchgrain WWII Field Boot Special Order

And after that, we're offering a 3-eye Soller Last Chukka boot in both Hatch Grain and Snuff Suede. It's a really fantastic shape that you can wear casually or dressed up.


Brown Hatch Grain Chukka Special Order


Snuff Suede Chukka Special Order

Where would you say the Soller Last is in regards to fit? Is this somewhere between the Forest and Rain?
