    These are my new pickups from the folks at Skoaktiebolaget, they were a pleasure to deal with and I received the shoes in less than a week to the US from Stockholm.


    These pictures don't do these shoes justice what so ever. I own John Lobb, Edward Green, and Gaziano & Girling respectively, however for the price I don't believe there is anything that comes close to these shoes.


    Thanks guys

    Please excuse my crappy iphoto's

    Thanks guys!

    Honestly as beautiful as they look in Skoak's pictures, doesn't come close to how gorgeous they are IRL. Beautiful in every which way, and the fit is impeccable.

    Grab them both while you can.

    Only thing I'd change if I could is the side's of the soles on the grey suede to black instead of dark brownish...

    Have to agree those Adelaide's are awesome, if only they weren't Simpson lasted. I seem to only be able to wear the Simpson in a derby, oxfords are just a bit tight.

    If you could get five other people interested, you could do an MTO for the standard price of a pair, Jason.

    Speaking of potential MTOs...with that lizard Carmina chelsea on the front page, would anyone be interested in a lizard chelsea or jodhpur for this coming Autumn? That would put us around May for deposits, accounting for Carmina's summer vacation, and delivery in September.

    Yeah, perfect timing as well, I can take some paternity leave just in time for the Football World Cup next summer. :)

    Back on topic, I'm going to be at the Carmina factory in Inca on Monday (March 4). Any requests for photos or intel?
