    Maybe. I do love that style, but how do you feel about:

    A) Etrusco calf, a reddish brown tone that is extremely versatile, perhaps moreso than the (still beautiful) Aubergine color. Tan goat lining if Etrusco, green if Aubergine.

    B) Seeing if EB will do the buckle over the ankle. Gabriel previously mentioned this would incur a 30% fee due to the pattern change, so maybe we can bring that down a bit with more people? I think it looks a tad sexier to see the buckle just under the trouser hem, though it's also more casual. Carmina has this style. I am ok with the pictured version, though.

    Dear gentlemen, just a reminder that this GMTO is ongoing.
    Having reached 7 orders we are thinking about closing it early. Final deadline is March 11th (6:00 pm, Swedish time).
    If there is someone else interested, he is more than welcome to jump onboard.
    All the best.

    I got a job offer at the end of last month, so I kopped a pair of Edward Green Ivernesses (thankfully before the price increase). All I can say is wow.

    Never got hit with duties when ordering from Skoat until now. Postman came with a $170CAD bill for the fox suede chelseas... ouch!!!! Definitely took some excitement out of getting the boots... especially after waiting 2 weeks for them =(

    Local postal service. The 4 times before that i ordered from Skoat were fine. They just delivered and that was it. Knew something was up when customs held the package for 4 days

    ouch, and I've been hearing that it's usually never caught with canpost. Was contemplating an order too...
    chalk it up to law of averages I guess, or otherwise about what you would have paid at Leatherfoot if they carried the same.

    As far as I know they didn't. Might have to ship my EG Galway to US now. Canada Post loves me and I can see their happy faces once they see $1000+ EG lol

    So they still ship with the Swedish government's post? It doesn't eliminate the risk of duties but does reduce if I read right.
