    Have that Frankenstitch derby. Gorgeous shoe, but that sole is super stuff and still hasn't broken in for me. Would rather have single Dainite, Tomir, or Ridgeway for something like that.

    I don't think they are interested in that derby, only the NST.

    All my dudes sent great vibes. Just saw that my shoes cleared customs and are in San Jose. Hopefully they are here tomorrow!

    I am not thanking anyone except my bros for those vibes.

    I guess, it's always possible it was just a mistake.

    True I guess it had never happened before so I thought I would ask

    Not exactly new, we used them in an ancient occult Viking fertility tradition, but they should be ok. :) Wear in good health.

    Now it's time to wake up the kids. I was enjoying reading the newspaper in serene silence for once. Here comes the chaos.

    Any residual white stains are only Saphir Reno that wasn't polished in properly. Just rub it in...

    Carmina owners

    Can anyone comment on the colors/saturation etc. of snuff, tobacco and fox suede? Reddish versus greenish in tone?

    Side by side pics would be great if you have two or more of these make-ups. Show off your shoes!

    Thanks.

    March 1 price increase

    An update on this. Just got notified by Edward Green that they are also looking to increase their prices, this will go into effect end of this week. But we will honor any quotes and prices until end of this month. Because of the currency exchnage rates and the G&G and EG price increase, we are looking at an increase in pricing for about 13-15% (!). So you guys send through your orders if you want to take advantage of the old pricing.

    Enzo Bonafé & Carmina increase: about 3-4%
    Edward Green and Gaziano & Girling increase: about 13-15%.

    We have a small restock of Edward Green staple incoming before the price increase, as well as some G&G staple that might make it before the increase.

    Hey, I just wanted to remind people of this GMTO because we have changed some of the details; in particular the suede color and sole are more defined now.
    I'm trying to get this going this month before Carmina/Skoaktiebolaget's price increase in March. With the strength of the USD to the SEK, this is a good time to organize an order.

    These chukkas will be a work horse by being able to worn in both casual and business casual settings easily. A lighter shade of suede is something that will add another dimension to your shoe rotation. The makeup is variable, but here is the initial plan:
    Model: 905 5 eyelet chukka
    [​IMG]
    Last: Rain
    Sole: Dainite
    Leather: Snuff suede
    Price: ~$390 + shipping, which may be around $40 if shipping to the US. A 50% nonrefundable deposit is required at the start of the GMTO, with the balance + shipping is charged once the shoes ship. This price depends on the currency exchange rate at the time of order.

    We need 6 people total to do a GMTO via Skoaktiebolaget, and so far we have 4 confirmed. Let me know if you want in on this makeup or if you have any further questions, but the link to Skoaktiebolaget's GMTO program should answer most questions. For fit questions, it is best to email Skaoktiebolaget directly, but I've found sizing down 1-1.5 from your Brannock works for Rain lasted chukkas. I'm looking forward to getting this GMTO off the ground.
