    seriously?


    You are aware that they are getting crushed by the currency rate right now, right? and as a courtesy to customers Patrik is waiting till 3/1 to raise his prices so that everyone has advanced notice. But you want additional markdowns?? I don't see that happening...

    +1 Let's let the person who actually owns the business and takes all the risk decide when to have a sale. Give 'em a smile, they take a mile.

    A thorpe at 1k is practically giving it away. That make up anywhere else would be $14-1500 all day. The shipping is quick transactions flawless responsive staff that actually cares.

    I have dealt with numerous high end retailers non of which are better than skoak, some as good but none better.

    I want to skoak to do well, everyday I look at my zugs I remain grateful.

    We have a king in Sweden, not a president. :)

    Lol - scratching my head. I thought someone might make this connection. Aside from the fact that no American president was born on presidents day. Sigh. We love our door buster sales. I hope we do not export this trend to Europe.

    Quote:Well played :) As an aside, while I have thanked you through email for my customer service experience, I havent done so publicly. So, thank you. I'm sure most of the people posting in this thread are already aware that you take excellent care of your customers, but it was still a pleasant surprise.

    I echo @bespoken pa comment, Skoak customer service is second to none. They have been putting up some of our crazy requests for unique makeups, really wonderful and caring customer service.
    I am looking forward to seeing that special pomegranate color prototype Skoak is working on. :slayer:

    So, I think I have decided that my last purchase before the price increase will be a MTO EG Ullswater (my first MTO). I want this to be a casual shoe for wearing with jeans and chinos for casual Friday and weekend dinners and preferably wearable year around. But, I don't want the shoe to be clunky and I don't really need it for foul weather as I live in North Florida. I want this shoe to be in a mid to mid-dark brown but I don't want it to dark. I think that EG Walnut is to dark.

    I am in awe of the design skills shown by many on this thread so I am throwing this out here to gather suggestions on how I can make this shoe awesome. I am currently thinking of Mahogany Country Calf. Maybe no storm welt. Dainite sole.

    Any design suggestions? Other thoughts? Thanks for your help in advance.

    Just got the Bonafe MTO email. 120 single MTOs! That's pretty awesome! This thread should be amazing when those start rolling in, although it sounds like that will be a few weeks later than originally thought. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    To be frank Rydenfan, I was inspired by your Willow version and by some of the Mahogany CC pictures I found over in the EG thread. This shoe seems very versatile.
