    Standard Shipping.

    Take your tracking number and go to the UPS tracking site. You'll then be able to tell where they are in the U.S.

    Sorry to hear that. I thought you might not be aware that the same tracking number also works on the UPS tracking site and it shows the progress once it arrives in the States.

    Express is usually 2-3 business days worldwide. Last weekend was a special holiday in Sweden (closed Friday-Sunday) so they were not shipped until after that. But please e-mail us and we'll sort it out.

    Alex + co.,

    I'm on the cusp for the Carmina Modern Classic in Brown (from here: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carmina/products/carmina-modern-classic-in-brown) but it occurred to me that it looks like there's no burnishing on the toe, which seems odd (funny how that's now become a semi-standard look; or at least I've come to expect it).

    Just double checking to see if that's really the case or maybe the pics aren't picking it up. I'm sure I can darken them over time but just wanted to double check what their natural state is in real life.

    Appreciation in advance!

    edit: I'll also ask that I'm a solid US10.5, and more like a 10.7 in my right foot (about .25" extra width in my right foot's toe area). Should I be going for a UK9.5 in these or a UK10?

    So I just got an email about my Manolo Adelaide GMTO pre-order. Apparently the source for the suede changed and it no longer looks like the original. I'm not sure if I like the new suede and I'm debating opting to take the offer for a refund. Wanted something more like polo suede or more tan. Not sure about this one. Thoughts?

    It's very close to snuff. Needs more pictures, maybe a few in natural light for a better decision. I really liked the warm hues of the original.

    I would take the refund, the new one looks nothing like the old. The old has a much nicer tone coloring too it, like a burnt sienna color. The new one is just brown.
