    Leaves, can you comment on the instep and heel dimensions of the Detroit and Rain lasts? I might be interested if one has a low instep and narrow heels?

    Hi everyone,
    Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Adam and I work with Patrik (Leaves) as store manager of Skoaktiebolaget. Some of you might know me from the store and others from e-mail conversations. I have been following Style Forum for a while, but this is my first post.

    It is now five months since we opened the store and we have been very happy with the response so far, and overwhelmed by all the questions and e-mails we receive each day from such far-away places as California, Singapore, Hong Kong and Syndey to name just a few.

    Hopefully this thread can be a good source for all those who are interested in learning more about our products and our store. I will also try my best to participate in other threads of interest.

    Please feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions, or contact [email protected].

    Both Rain and Detroit are wide fitting lasts = wide heels. Detroit has a lower instep compared to Rain. Simpson would probably be the best option for you. It looks very similar to Rain, but has both a narrow heel and low instep.

    Leaves,

    Previously I believe someone mentioned in the Edward Green thread that you can order a different width in one of your stock models without an MTO charge. Is this correct?

    For example I would be interested in ordering the stock Galway you are getting in a Narrow width.
    Thanks!

    This is correct. There is no surcharge if you want a different width in stock models but production time is the same as for MTO, around 6 months.

    What model of Galway are you guys getting into your stock? Are they any plans for Skoaktiebolaget to order Galways in the future?

    Bonafé will be about 5500 SEK (4400 ex VAT, approx. $670). Button boots will be about 6500 SEK (5200 ex VAT, approx. $790). MTO will be an extra 15%.



    Dark Oak/Walnut Country Calf on a Dainite sole. This is a group MTO so we won't carry a full line of sizes, we just ordered a few extra pairs on top of the Group MTO. PM me if you're interested in pre-booking these extra pairs. They should arrive in early May.

    If interest is high enough, sure thing we'll order more Galways. I'd love to do a new Group MTO as with this last Galway.

    Just a quick reminder for all of you Gaziano & Girling fans out there, this Friday and Saturday (March 8-9) G&G will be hosting a trunk show at Skoaktiebolaget, Humlegårdsgatan 4, Stockholm. Both Tony and Dean will be there. This is the first proper G&G trunk show ever in Scandinavia.

    Anyone interested in doing another round of MTO's for the Galway? Maybe on the 888 last?
