    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Wow. That looks great. Been googling for 10 minutes with no luck--where did you find that monkstrap wingtip?

    I bought those monks at Arthur Knight Shoes. From what I understand according to their website they were the only online retailer that carried them.

    I think they only have one size left.

    Only one pair left, actually. Lucky for me it was in my size. :)

    Thanks for posting!! I should have mine in about 2 weeks.

    I'm glad it will work out for you. Oh, one more thing the shoes tend to fit on the snug side and I have narrow width feet.

    Lol...well, in that case either I will be very pleased and lucky, or someone else with slightly smaller feet will have a great purchase opportunity here in the States.

    Either way, it is worth taking a chance! Cheers!

    Nordstrom sells similar model. The prices are almost double compared to
    Skoak.

    I applaud Skoak for adding Carlos Santos, seems like an awesome brand to add. As a fat footer, I'm incredibly bummed that I won't be able to try the brand out (Gabriel confirmed CS doesn't do wider fittings). That Florest patina --- hot damn! If Skoak could convince them to create a wider fitting...

    I'd be interested in this new company. However I probably wear a suit 3-4 times a year and I find black shoes boring, so I'll wait for something with more flair.

    Although a sleek pair of black captoe does look great with grey pants and suit

    I'd be interested in the jumper boot with a suede shaft.

    maybe the coimbra (dark brown) with a dark blue suede shaft? Green suede shaft works too

    Remember, though, you can do the patina service and choose your own color.

    I wish there was an oxford available for the patina service.

    The Patina Service has been very well received. If all goes as planned, we hope to be able to add some additional styles to the Patina Service line up, but it's a bit early to tell. Maybe end of this year or something like that.

    Think I just found my next pair of shoes on the Andreas Weinas's iG account: the Carlos Santos full brogues look amazing. Any idea when these will be available?
