Just in time for my friend's wedding in a few weeks.

Superb sizing advice from Alex and Gabriel. Great service (shipping speed, communication). Eager to score the Enzo wholecut next round!


I just purchased the same pair few days ago, I can't wait to get mine. Did you have to pay any extra fees when you received them?

@TGuns

None, sir! Post up pics when you get them. I'm in CA, FYI.

I am a believer in the austerity brogue. All I need now:

Tobacco suede
Navy museum calf

Can anyone confirm that Simpson and Uetam sizing are the same?

I wear a 7UK in Simpson............would I be the same in Uetam?

Thanks in advance!!

No, but I mentioned it in the Gentlemens Footwear thread. Sounded like a possibility.

I want to rock an all black outfit—jacket, shirt, pants—but I want to wear non black shoes and have a non black pocket square. I'm thinking navy or a deep midnight would look sweet.

Oh I was hoping you were going to do Enzo Bonafe. Not sure what I want yet. I was looking at Enzo Bonafé Museum Calf Austerity Brogue - Model 3724, 946 chiseled last. But I have 3 Burgundy Shoes (Carmina Chukka, Double Monk), 2 Vintage Rioja (G&G Wigmore + G&G St James II) and Oxblood (AS Miller Boot). Thinking it would be too redundant.

Carmina just issued a price increase on new Cordovan orders. We have quite a few already in production that will not be effected, but any new orders will be subject to these new prices. The increase is a result of the Horween Cordovan shortage.

Shoes- 5700 SEK / 4560 SEK ex VAT
Boots – 6900 SEK / 5520 SEK ex VAT

+50% surcharge for MTOs as usual.

Our Cordovan collection at this moment: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/cordovan

Lots of changes recently... The EG immediate one was a Shannon killer for me. Ms. Hilary Freeman, a lead time for such changes would have been appreciated. frown.gif

I'd love the same Enzo austerity brogue I got but in navy museum calf. That would look unreal and perfect for the outfit I described.

Just got my tobacco suede rain lasted adelaides, the special manolo make-up from Skoak.

This is the new batch of Tabacco that replaced the one which was initially presented, but then changed without notice to Skoak or any of it's customers.

Anyways, I took the chance that I would be happy with the purchase and went ahead with the order even though Skoak gave me the option to cancel and get a refund. I have always been happy with my purchases from them prior. Let me say, I'm very happy I did not cancel.

The color is a bit darker then the original, but has less of the redness and still has a soft brown that looks really nice under natural light. I can see myself wearing these all the way through the end of autumn before any heavy snowfall.

Anyways, here are some pics from my iPhone that I snapped just to give some of the members here an idea what they may have missed out on if they cancelled, or possible future MTOs with this material. The last picture of the bunch is a pair of captoes that I have in snuff suede, just to show the color difference.

They should be restocking that end of summer or early fall. I asked earlier but I'll wait for the response again.
