So is it usual to get a shipping notice after paying one's deposit?

It's a standard notice from our ecommerce system. Items will be ready in 3-4 months.

This is a good idea

If you decide for scotch grain I'm also fine with this makeup.

How much brogueing would you like on the shoe?

Fellas, just FYI, the Carmina factory closes for summer leave on Friday and opens up on August 10 again. Edward Green, G&G, StC and Bonafè also closes up for a couple of weeks so we won't get any answers (or deliveries) coming out of there, just so you know.

On August 12 we plan to launch the first part
of our fall collection from Carmina Shoemaker. Keep tuned then! Deliveries from other makers will also roll in mid-August, so be sure to check out this thread regularly for updates and new releases.

I will be in vacation until August 10, Gabriel is back on the 17th so Alexander, Douglas and Oliver will pilot the ship, so please allow for a few extra days before the team responds to emails. Please note that you should always email sales@skoaktiebolaget.se for queries instead of using PMs.

Thanks fellas, have a great summer, this past Spring/Summer season has been phenomenal! I really enjoy working with you guys with amazing special projects and MTOs. I'll probably post here during my vacation, but less frequently.

I think that this is the idea for quarter brogues:


I am also OK with half brogues, really with most things, as long as it is a formal shoe which is:

 

1. burgundy

2. tomir sole

3. rain last

I've seen some Enzo Bonafè shoes being referred to as Betis Castagna. Is this the equivalent to the color Bergeronnette? I can't seem to find it (Betis Castagna) in the color chart that Skoak has provided.

if i'm not wrong, Betis is a range of leather EB has. Castagna would be chestnut. not too sure about similarities with Bergeronnette!

Thanks. I thought that the colors included in Skoak's color chart were all the colors available from Enzo Bonafè and that Betis was a name some resellers used instead of the names that Skoak uses, hence my conclusion that Betis = Bergeronnette. But you're suggesting that there are more colors available than the ones Skoak offers? Maybe Leaves can shed some light on this matter?

The color chart I'm referring to

Here you go.

Thanks, laufer. Seems like I was looking at the wrong chart. Here's a pair of shoes that's advertised as Betis Castagna. Doesn't look like #3 in the chart though. Confusing...

I may be in on this. What's the current lead time for Carmina?

It is confusing but Leaves already answered this in one of his post

"Note that Betis looks very different after they have been finished. It looks so different when finished that we have been reluctant to post them before. As an example, the derby shoes posted here is in Castagna Betis."

For this very reason I have been reluctant to order betis calf. However eventually I will I think go for a chukka on betis calf. It seems to be very durable leather.

Well if we get the GMTO started now, I presume the shoes should be shipped sometime in October or early November….

Well, have a great vacation, you and Gabriel. Post some pics of Galways on The Bahamas or Dovers in Calais, why don't you. wink.gif

Looks like Carmina factory is going to close for vacation soon so I expect some delays. I will make a separate GMTO page for this later today or tomorrow.
