    Very kind of you to say, Steve.

    I hope to participate in some of your crowdsourced collaborations in the future, although, I am running out of space in my stable.

    Hi, just a quick question about Carmina prices around the US.

    I was wondering where the cheapest place to get a standard pair of oxfords would be?
    So far, I know of the following places:

    Gentlemens Footwear: $525
    Epaulet: $545
    The Armoury: $550 + $12 (shipping) = $562
    Skoaktiebolaget: $400 + $45 (shipping) + $34 (customs - 8.5% I was told) = $479
    Leatherfoot: $500 + $40 (shipping) + Customs (How much would it be?) = $540 ++
    Nettleton Shoeshop: $565 + Shipping
    ToBox Shoes:: $595 + Shipping

    Am I missing any other options?

    Thanks!

    Unipair is another site to check. You can also purchase direct from Carmina.

    Thanks! I looked at Unipair and the prices were a lot higher than these stores (presumably from importing the shoes from Spain). Do you know how much they cost straight from Carmina?

    Their prices are on their website (both with and without VAT).

    FWIW Skoak was the cheapest for me and I did not get hit with import duties. I know many others have reported the same thing.
