    They reply very quickly to the "Contact" form on the website.

    Also, did they confirm that the shoe you wanted was in stock before you paid?

    I was gunning for the Suede Wholecuts and just did my due diligence by asking about sizing and was informed by Pepe that they wouldn't have any for 30 days,
    nothing on the website about out of stock.

    They didn't say it was in stock and I didn't ask because I'm not in a rush. I just want confirmation that the next step is happening, be it shipment, them waiting to receive stock, etc. because for all intents and purposes no communication (including that payment has been received) appears to me to indicate a lost order.

    I just ordered a pair of shell PTBs and Sandro said it'd be 30 days before they shipped. Which turned out to mean they were out of stock, at least in my size, and needed to make them up. Not a big deal, though.

    FYI, for me VAT deduction was about 15.5%. Might help with your cost calculations. My order of classic line shoes came out to $175 per pair shipped.

    Cheers, not sure we want that though:)

    Jose confirmed that a UK7.5 should be fine, so I'll be ordering that size from now on for the Ama and Hiro. The RON is apparently similar to Ama, with the instep modified for a loafer. Taking the plunge soon I reckon.

    Regards,
    Tom

    Got my "Dark Brown" Oxfords.
    I don't know if the colour on the site is way off or they sent me the wrong thing, all I know is that the shoes I got are
    10 times better looking than the ones I ordered.

    Compare this:

    I had the same thing happen with my bluchers I ordered. They seem to have two versions of dark brown, one an actual brown, one more or a burgundy. It's a very pleasant colour, but if you're feeling particular, you'll need to be careful.

    Wow, I just ordered a couple in brown and I really wanted the color shown, not that. It is a nice color, but it shouldn't be sold as brown and pictured as it is on the site. Is the other version of brown, the actual brown, used on certain styles, or is it just chance to get one or the other?

    From what I've seen, it's certain styles come in the different shades. For instance, the brown monks everyone has been getting come in actual brown, whereas the norwegian toe derbys come in the maroon.

    See the difference?

    What did you order that you are worried about? To be honest I was displeased as first too, but the colour, as stated above, is far from lackluster in person, and grows on you very quickly.
