    Sure, 2 pair of Enzo Bonafes, a pair of whole cuts, and a pair of button boots.... Really looking forward to the boots, my first pair of buttons.

    Express is usually 2-3 business days worldwide. Last weekend was a special holiday in Sweden (closed Friday-Sunday) so they were not shipped until after that. But please e-mail us and we'll sort it out.

    Alex + co.,

    I'm on the cusp for the Carmina Modern Classic in Brown (from here: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carmina/products/carmina-modern-classic-in-brown) but it occurred to me that it looks like there's no burnishing on the toe, which seems odd (funny how that's now become a semi-standard look; or at least I've come to expect it).

    Just double checking to see if that's really the case or maybe the pics aren't picking it up. I'm sure I can darken them over time but just wanted to double check what their natural state is in real life.

    Appreciation in advance!

    edit: I'll also ask that I'm a solid US10.5, and more like a 10.7 in my right foot (about .25" extra width in my right foot's toe area). Should I be going for a UK9.5 in these or a UK10?

    So I just got an email about my Manolo Adelaide GMTO pre-order. Apparently the source for the suede changed and it no longer looks like the original. I'm not sure if I like the new suede and I'm debating opting to take the offer for a refund. Wanted something more like polo suede or more tan. Not sure about this one. Thoughts?

    It's very close to snuff. Needs more pictures, maybe a few in natural light for a better decision. I really liked the warm hues of the original.

    I would take the refund, the new one looks nothing like the old. The old has a much nicer tone coloring too it, like a burnt sienna color. The new one is just brown.
