    however, Skoaktiebolaget team once again demonstrates the exact meaning of "excellent customer service"

    Skoak, when can we expect the EB3863s in their brown calf (Vitello Meleze) GMTO from back in February? Or, at least, I think it was February. I thought the order on that said two months.

    I seem to remember that one is due in mid to late June. I believe it closed mid February.

    Happy to help. I'm very excited for this one to arrive. Thankfully the etrusco chukka that @RogerP had a hand in is due anytime now so there's something to help pass the time.

    Lovely Thunder! I'm under hard debate right now as to which route to go for a Jodhpur. A few styles are standouts for me (Enzo Bonafe, Zonkey Boot, or J Fitzpatrick.)

    Has anyone tried the new Carlos Santos line? I kind of like the look of the espresso brown oxford (cannot remember the exact name) and am curious about quality as compared with Carmina.

    What have you discovered in your research thus far? What exactly are you wanting to know?

    Skoak wouldn't carry these shoes unless they were up to a certain level of quality - I'm sure they have done thorough diligence not only for their own sake but for the sake of their customers and reputation.

    Don't be so defensive - he just wanted to know impressions, and how they stack up vs other brands that Skoak carries

    No, he wants to know if the leather is gluten and GMO free and the name of the calf whos leather is used for his shoes.

    LOL!

    What do I have to be defensive about? Skoak is the real deal - they are truly masters of their trade.

    I just thought that maybe someone with "shoes" in their username would actually know how about - umm, I don't know.........SHOES??

    People who know have learned. People who learned have asked. Don't be so quick to put someone down.

    So because he has the word 'shoes' in his name he must know the quality levels and comparables of every shoe brand?

    Speaking of which, I hope you're a world renowned expert in Viruses or in marketing - otherwise you might need a new name yourself.

    Just be nice.

    whoa...........let's calm down. Not intended to put anyone down, sorry!

    He came across as a newbie - ironic given his username. Posting in a thread about a store that sells probably the finest quality footwear in the world about the quality of one of their brands struck me as odd. That's like walking into a gym while Jordan and Kobe are playing pick-up ball and asking if they can really play basketball.

    And my username has nothing to do with viruses................so American of you to assume that :lol:

    Now......let's all enjoy the beautiful weather!
