I am in love and thought that I'd include a variety of photos to show the variation in color of this shade based on lighting. 

Marvelous, Congrats!!

i'm still trying to figure that out but for now i'm leaning towards blues and black. I have a navy blue lining so the blue will work well at the least.

How about light to mid greys in terms of trousers? Too safe?

To our clients in Singapore

Starting this week we have implemented a new pricing structure for Carmina items shipping to Singapore. The price will now be including:
• Shipping
• Customs and taxes
• Handling fees

Please note that this special fee only applies to Carmina. All other brands are currently unaffected as of now.

I'm so fortunate that I don't think there will ever be a retailer for "nice" shoes in Brunei :-)

Yes of course that should work well too. I don't mind safe combinations but I like to have some days where they "pop" as well.

I am quite disappointed with the speed of which this notice was given. I basically had to talk to Patrik Löf for the whole day and gone through 3 different price hike before it finally settled for 3700SEK.

 

In fact just yesterday I inquire about the prices of carmine and whether there is changes. However this was their reply 

 

"No, we have not raised our Carmina prices since the fall season but please also note that the currency converter is only to give a guidance on the price for different currencies. We always trade in Swedish Krona, SEK, and our own currency can be quite strong at the moment.

Kind regards,
Gabriel Öberg Bustad, Store Manager"

 

And for them to tell me today that there is a price hike just when i want to purchase it, Im quite disappointed overall with the speed at which such important information was provided.

I don't agree with the Carmina pricing structure either. You don't see them lowering prices in Hong Kong where there have been Carmina stockists for a long time charging high prices. It's not fair when it only goes one way which is up. Frankly, it was always a risk since they opened that franchise Carmina store in Singapore selling shell models at 2k SGD (~1.4k USD). 

 

Not taking any sides but we should be clear this is a Carmina and not Skoak policy. Gabriel didn't say anything false in general imo but did you ask him specifically about Singapore? 

 

By the way, shouldn't the price include free shoe trees?

What on earth are you talking about. 

I have just checked the site, current prices for SG customers remain as they were, though the price hike is likely to be soon. 

Patrik's most recent post is ample and fair warning enough. 

Moreover, Gabriel's statement did not imply that there would be no price hike. It merely stated that prices have not been raised since the fall season. 

Grow a pair dude. Or improve your reading comprehension, or preferably both.
