    So, basically, here is chance to put in your EG MTOs "for free" because, after the price increase, today's MTO price will effectively match (give or take a very small amount) the going rate for RTW models. Hmmmm.

    Wait, I'm confused by the sentence "Just got notified by Edward Green that they are also looking to increase their prices, this will go into effect end of this week".

    Will all prices increase by the end of the week or just EG? If it's the former, I really gotta get my 5 eyelet GMTO off the ground [​IMG]

    I broke my $1k price cap for EG and it was definitely worth it, but at 15% EG is about to out price themselves for me. Not sure if I should call it quits now or get this next Galway off the ground then call it quits.

    What's funny is that a falling currency is generally an opportunity to sell more goods overseas. Raising prices loses that benefit and doesn't exactly help your domestic sales either.
    Edit: This is a critique of EG not Skoak. If SEK is weak vs GBP, price increase is absolutely needed.

    I think Patrik told me that the Dover would not be available until after March 1, which means the Dover will be part of the 15% increase.

    I really want the Dover, but dang the 15% is steep. Still leaning on getting it though, but it's a terroritory that's pushing me back to Carminas again, haha. No complains for sure though.

    Nobody does a neater split toe than EG and G&G in the RTW realm. If that is the style you want, don't settle for anything less. You'd be thinking about it even after getting the Carminas.
