I have been thinking of a mignight blue austerity brogue.
The new US site has been discussed for over a month now in this thread. While there is a price increase, the new prices also include shipping and customs fees. The price increase is minor blah, blah, blah. Please read the thread...
Apologies, this was a faux pas on my part.
I was referring to the Carmina ecommerce site, not Skoak.
This post was also meant for the Carmina thread.
I am extremely familiar with the discussion in this thread on the global economy and not shorting the US retailers, etc etc... Yawn.
The Skoak guys are rightly doing what they are told by their supplier.
Please read his post. He specifically mentioned the Carmina US site.
Edit: Wait....Skoak now has a US site and now everything is more expensive??
Agreed. My initial thought was to cringe at the pricing hike, but it is exceedingly reasonable once actually analyzed.
I emailed Skoak this weekend with the exact same question. And the answer was Yes. Order has been sent to G&G. Delivery in 4 to 5 months. Life's good!
