    As per your instructions I am not sending you a PM Frank. But I'd like to know whether or not the shipping is free in Sweden, Denmark, and Finland as is stated on Skoaktiebolagets website. The info I got from you read that there would be a shipping charge of 300 SEK. I've already sent an email to skoaktiebolaget with the same question, but I thought you might already have the answer.

    Google and you shall find.
    I didn´t know the answear but after 30 sek on skoaktiebolagets web site i found this:
    _______________________________________________________________________________

    SHIPPING
    We ship globally with flat rates depending on where you live:

    Sweden, Denmark, Finland - free shipping for purchases of 3000 SEK and above.
    European Union - 200 SEK for purchases of 3000 SEK and above.
    World Wide - 300 SEK (ex VAT) for purchases of 3000 SEK and above.

    At this moment we do not accept mail orders under 3000 SEK. This may change but not in the near future.
    _________________________________________________________________________________


    This is not meant to be rude but i find it quite funny that in the era of information and easy ways to find it, people still write questions on forum that takes longer time to write than it takes to google the answear. This is the reason i told people not to PM me :D

    Which is exactly the same info I found. The reason I asked is that you sent me conflicting information in the MTO info. "Shipping cost is 300 SEK flat rate with swedish regular mail." As you also wrote that the info was given you by the store manager I was unsure which would prove correct. Granted that info was likely directed at non swedes participating, but I wanted to be certain. Glad to have an answer in any case.

    BTW. Please give a green light for PMs when appropriate, I'd like to revise my shipping address if that is still possible.

    Probably one of the best looking loafers ever!

    Did you order them through The Armoury?
    I want those so badly too but customs of Germany are ridiculous.
    Very sexy loafers and great to finally see some more pictures taken from other angles.

    Damn, the full grain bal boot sold out already at Skoaktiebolaget, and discovering that prompted me to realize that I could have moved my money around to buy them last week instead of waiting for a paypal payment to go through [​IMG]

    Time to wait 3 months for a restock...

    Thanks, Gentlemen.

    Yes, it's from The Armoury. Also ordered the blue suede but didn't come in this time.

    You too huh? I've been ogling them for the last few hours while reading the balmoral boot porn thread. I was told that our mto would probably be delivered in early january though, so the only reasonable thing for me to do is to pick up a pair of them as well when I collect the mto boot. I mean it would make no sense for me not to have an oxford boot. Right? [​IMG]

    I envy you. Being a size 13, I will never have the chance to see any Carmina in stock anywhere or at the Armory. These are nice. Enjoy!

    Also a 13. The only real option is getting in on a MTO group order. It would be nice to be able to try on different lasts and get a feel for sizing. Oh well, the lord gave us big feet but he compensated by giving us...big other things.

    Yup. I'm also in on the MTO, and I think my January boot plan will turn out exactly like yours.

    For now, I think I'll set my sight on those shell bal boots that are still in stock [​IMG]
