    Free ship at 8000SEK.

    It's about 45 USD for a pair of run of the mill StC. You do get it much faster with Fedex than USPS.
    I believe they charge socks at a higher percentage 11%, not sure about shoe trees that is list as a separate entity.

    Yes, but the overall cost of purchasing through them with fees is still less than most if not all other retailers that I am aware of, correct?

    Skoak is def the cheapest alternative out there. Until they have to open that us shop. Then it becomes more in line w everyone else.

    Depending upon your make up for the shoe & if you get taxed aka hit by custom for example I had button boot done by stcrispin I paid 1560$ for them with custom it would be same price as U.S. Retailers

    Ok, my mistake but like I said both of my St Crispins were a while ago and through stateside retailers. Same cost overall, so still a good deal since you've done a good amount a business with this same people and they do provide excellent customer service.

    I get that what I am confused about is for example today I paid total of 5100 sek$ this includes 50% cost of the shoe & 300 sek for postal service. So know my question is upon delivery I am going to pay 300sek$ less because I paid extra money for usps shipping. And shipping is free with 8000 sek$ dose that make sense sorry doing this with close phone

    Ok, same price. But the advantages of dealing with them still outweigh the others in my opinion. The fact that they are well established affiliate here who also happen to openly and rapidly communicate with their customers here and provide such excellent customer service. The fact that Leaves comes thru with some great make ups not to mention some rarer leathers not found elsewhere and not to mention such a large percentage of Pre-Order possibilities. Not to mention the fact he publishes his anticipated arrival list whichi greatly helps me determine what to MTO and which I can :embar:count on purchasing without MTO through them. Did I forget anything? oh yeah the fact his staff and mainly Gabriel to this point responds so quickly to questions and assistance via email


    All in all Above and Beyound my normal expectations!!!

    No, the way I remmember it is that if the total cost exceeds or crosses the threshold you'll pay initially because the initial payment doesn't cross the threshold. However once you pay the second and final payment then the total cost crosses the threshold so you second payment is less because then the shipping is also deducted as well.

    Honestly, I'm thinking I would love to have a DOAK pair in TG73 to go with this. It's pretty sweet. I don't know how @RogerP got that deep reddish color on it. Really good lighting. I took some photos but they look washed out so I'm going to try taking more photos when its overcast.

    I'll agree with you however nick at bespoke England is great too imo. I've only had good experiences with both he and Skoak
