Price Increase September 8

Hello people, just wanted to let you know that prices for all our brands will be increased on September 8. The price increase will be marginal for MTOs because here we have already increased our earlier this summer, but all our ready-to-wear stock will be subject to an increase, especially G&G and EG stock. So if you are on the fence, you should consider pulling the trigger before September 8 (this means Sunday evening, September 7, in North America).

As a couple of examples Gaziano & Girling Walkton will go from 7900 SEK to 8800 SEK (incl. VAT), Edward Green Berkeley will go from 7400 SEK to 8000 (incl. VAT). Carmina and Bonafé will only be hit with a 5% increase or so, not too bad.

The reason for our price increase is that the Swedish Krona (SEK) is so weak now that it has become much more expensive for us to buy from the UK, Spain and Italy.

Patrik, is it possible do a Dover MTO on the 82 last without going Top Drawer?

Will you be receiving a restock of the Carmina Balmoral grain/calf boots before September 8? I know it says mid-September on your page, but here's hoping!

 

Either way, a price increase won't put me off from buying a pair as long as the last fits my feet. ;)

If you want to do the Dover on anything other than 202, 606, 32 it will have to be Top Drawer or MTO Option 2 with a surcharge of 2700 SEK (incl. VAT). A Top Drawer Dover is 15800 SEK (incl. VAT).

So it's also possible to do it on the 82 last through MTO Option 2, without going Top Drawer? In that case it'd be 11 800 SEK.

Correct, 11800 SEK including Swedish VAT. Plus 900 SEK for trees.

Sorry, seems like there've been some sort of misunderstanding. I didn't inquire about the price difference, rather about the difference between the MTO options (Option 2/Top Drawer).

How does the boot compare to the following in terms of sizing?

Simpson 11.5
Filadelphia 11
Rain 11

I assume I need an 11?

Thanks for the advanced warning @Leaves. I had been looking at the EG Chelsea in Doak for a while now. I decided this would be a good time to go ahead and get a pair.
