    Skoak. There's a mad rush of GMTO's over there since Skoak announced a price increase going into effect March 1st. The GMTO is Euro's boot in snuff suede with a Danite sole. I think I'm in. @thehaven22 is organizing it.

    Nice gents. Lasts? Rain/Simpson?

    Thanks @europrep ...it seems in terms of darkness, they are in the same ballpark and would look ok with mid-gray. Tobacco looks redder though who can tell with lighting and cameras being different.

    @New Shoes1 Are those mid or light gray trousers?

    I'm inclined to snuff suede right now...

    Increases from the manufacturers.

    It does seem like Carmina's increase is only 3-4%. It's EG that's really jumping +15% (incidentally, if anyone is ever thinking about buying EG, it does seem like Skoak's pricings are very nice for a few more weeks).

    I have worn them with jeans as well. In the first picture above I am wearing a sportcoat, no tie and it worked. Second pic I am wearing just a sweater and also worked well. These also have the dainite sole...spray them with Nano and they hold up well in bad weather.

    One more side view I found:

    Rain last...same as GMTO.

    Here is the GMTO I am part of through GFW that needs one or two more. Somebody jump in please!

    We don't make unilateral purchases, particularly with regards to 1000$+ luxury purchases ^_^

    Mid-gray. They're Howard Yount tropical wool.

    I think Carmina's snuff suede looks outstanding with mid-gray. I'm not sure if there is enough contrast to wear them with tan pants.

    Also what's style forums opinion on flip flops? I ask because fro the summer i have (in my opinion) the best flip flops on the planet and i think they are great for everything casual they even performed fantastic on steep rocky ground as i walked into a crag, they can do just about everything and any thing provided i don't have to wear a suit. http://shop.reef.com/reef-jbay/d/1161_c_106

    An essential part of any Aussies wardrobe. What else do you wear to the beach? I like 'em :)

    Don't tell me you're considering to wear flip flops anywhere else?

    Thx! I see. I really did have an infected cochlea once which kept me down for a good two weeks. The vertigo that you get from the viral infection is probably the worst thing I have gone thru. Your world is just spinning 24/7.

    Anyways, who needs WebMD when you have NGNT and Dr. Cox (typing away in prison).
