    I can confirm that we received the Cognac Shell Jumpers late this afternoon (CET). They will go through quality control tomorrow and then e-mails will go out to all participants. All further communication in regards of this GMTO will go through sales@skoaktiebolaget.se. Thank you for your patience and support.

    A batch of Jumpers in Grain also arrived ahead of schedule, these will be supplied based on how early each client placed their pre-order ("first come-first serve"). E-mails will go out for these participants as well.

    EDIT: added picture

    Thanks! Yeah I'm aware that we should bring in some more UK 6 and 6.5, and this has also been taken into consideration for our large February restock.

    Thank you for the post and for going a bit smaller!

    I have the added challenge of wideness -I walk on clubs - so the wide lasts (soller, Detroit and perhaps Inca (?)) And the wide fittings of rain and forest lasts are what I need. So I look forward to seeing what is available in 2014. Plain toe blucher in the light cognac Cordovan or navy cordovan, six eyelet boot in light cognac cordovan, medallion captoe bluchers in black or burgundy cordovan and a navy cordovan loafer are of great interest to me. And, of course, you make such great make-ups, I am looking forward to seeing what you have created that will become needed.

    Quote:Forest is not a wide-fitting last, but you are correct on the others.

    I think he is referring to the MTO option of a wider version for both rain and forest, not that either last is inherently wide normally.

    Has anyone had any taxes/custom fee with their shipment to the USA?

    Mine have all come in to Canada without a penny assessed. Trackable post is the way to go.

    Just wanted to add these amazing made-to-order Carmina shoes that also arrived:

    Plain toe Derby in Loden Green suede (X-post from the suede thread).

    Balmoral boot in Ruby Cordovan, for one of our favorite clients Down Under.

    And this is how the new Jumper Boot in Dark Cognac Cordovan turned out.
