1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Saw you meant Detroit last, so editing my response.

    Barrie and Detroit are similar fitting lasts - full in forefoot and toe box. I wear an "e" width in barrie, and Detroit lasted shoe fit a tiny bit more snug than a barrie shoe with "e" width, but not much.

    The rule of thumb is barrie-lasted shoes are .5 size down from brannock size and Carmina shoes go down one full size from Brannock size. For example, my brannock size is 7.5E. I wear 7E in barrie-lasted shoes and 6.5 in detroit-lasted shoes.

    If your real barrie size is 8D, I would think your brannock size would be 8.5D and you would likely wear a 7.5 detroit-lasted shoes.

    Rain last is a bit strange for general boots (too style-forward and angular), but with this special model it works perfectly!

    What a thoroughly dandy boot, nicely done SkoAB team!

    Thanks. I will try the 7UK Detroit and see how that goes. I have seen some people use that size conversion from Barrie last and also say that Rain and Detroit differ by a half size. So that all seems to make sense. If it's too small, I will try to snag the 7.5 if it is still available.

    Sadly, not until the Shell situation changes.


    They fit differently but similar, so yes the general recommendation is to use the same size for Detroit as for rain.

    No, but let's just say that Bonafé has an interpretation of a boot similar to the Crisp above, that in my opinion is more elegant.

    If you're a Nevis lover and welling to switch to G&G we do have the Thorpe in Arran Grain being launched today too.

    EB Chukka is on (with wrong pricing - I warned te guys already).

    It's indeed a nice chukka, I wondering if they are not too conflicting with my Galway, meaning similar type of leather.

    Well, Skoak, this was your best seasonal release ever. Top to bottom everything was awesome. So many goodies if anyone from EG almond CC crew wants a nicer version of the Nevis, the Thorpe is ready and perfectly executed. I'm so glad nothing in my size

    I will buy the carmina double monk immediately if I am not having a similar MTO with your side.

    Can I get my money back? Haha
