    Stocked model of the Nevis? Ok, but what leather is used on it? Mahogany CC? With or without storm welt?

    Good info. Thanks.

    So why are you guys trying to organize a GMTO for a Nevis in Mahogany CC? Is it just for the Dainite sole? I am guessing that the mint green lining isn't a real deal breaker...?

    Yeah would like the dainite. Mint green is a nice touch as well but not the deal breaker

    Price will be 8150 SEK ex VAT (if you do this through us, like we hope). Trees are optional at 760 SEK ex VAT. Shipping will be free of charge (this applies to any Skoaktiebolaget order above 8000 SEK btw).

    Unfortunately there has been a price increase from EG effective immediately, prices have gone up about 5%.

    There will also be other changes to their offerings. Keep tuned for more info. There's going to be some kind of launch early October, they're introducing a new last and some new models. I dunno if I can reveal more. I'll have to get back to you on that.

    Correct, I realize it's now public, but it's supposed to be launched in October officially. Here's a picture from Manolo.se of the new 890 last.

    The new model Laughton looks nice. I also might have to consider stocking the Newbury on this new last, that looks phenomenal.

    @Leaves,

    If I have quotes for MTO's are they all 5% higher or is quoted price honored?

    I must say it looks just like Bonafe's chiselled last but with a lower instep and narrower forefoot.

    I will make a decision soon too. I am debating now between Dover in 202 and Nevis, unfortunately I can only get one. I need to be able to get over that squared apron. Keep me updated guys.

    The new 890 last seems like the 82 and 888 mated.

    Edward Green does also have a last 89 in their archive,
    I believe, the 89 was exclusively designed for Ralph Lauren and in use during the late1990s - early 2000s.

    I presume, it's the DNA of the 89 that might have entered the new 890.

    A bit of an aside, but Bengal -- I was wondering, do you happen to know of any other notable archival styles from Edward Green that aren't in the catalog? I'm aware of the "City boot" they made for Asprey, and the Herrick. Are there others? Specifically ones that might be available for MTO (though, I'm aware the Herrick is probably not available for order).

    Thanks in advance.

    Just out of curiosity, how much would the total be for us Swedes (and other EU citizens)? Just add 25% VAT, or are there any other extra costs involved?

    Picked up my latest MTO from @Skoaktiebolaget today: EG Westminster in Mahogany Country Calf, 82 last, double leather sole, 360 welt. Service from Skoab was excellent as usual!
