    ^ possibly made in Spain in collab w/J Fitzpatrick and/or his manufacturer there.

    I agree at the possibility of a house brand or the collaboration theory. Leaves dropped what I thought was a big hint when I asked him about the chelsea boot on one of his previous teasers :happy:

    Would love to have it be a collaboration with a Japanese maker...

    With Maftei having a go at RTW, I can see that being a fit at Skoak. It just doesn't seem a natural replacement for Carmina.

    House brand seems reasonable.

    In terms of pricing, unless they’re replacing Carmina, I don’t know how a house-brand with the same or similar maker as J.Fitz fits into their product line-up. They’ve got a product gap between Enzo Bonafe ($500-600) and Paolo Scafora (1000+). Vass would fit there, but folks seem to have ruled that one out... what other brands would fit in that price gap? Crocket and Jones would, but as others suggested I’d think it would be a smaller, lesser known brand.

    The EU-Japan economic partnership agreement will make trading with
    Japanese shoemakers a lot more interesting, so who knows...

    There's a specialized C&J store a few hundred meters away thats been around for a very long time and got A LOT of more models than SkoAB would have. I think we can rule out C&J. Vass would work, but I think they make more money from a Carmina tier than a Vass tier. Vass did lose out with Jeevees though... so there's always a chance.
