    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.

    Do I have bad luck? Cross post from the Carmina thread.

    Just curious if loose grain creasing common on Carmina Calf 1sts? Just opened my boots.

    Great looking shoes otherwise. Thanks for the input all.

    Love the Frankenstitch.

    FYI, I did some investigation and I saw that this was actually Acorn Kudu.

    Seems wildly different from the sample. Wondering how dark the tan kudu is now and if it is closer to dark brown than a light/mid brown. Any thoughts on the comparison in color to DOAK / Mahogany CC / Oak Hatchgrain? Is it close to any of them / lighter then all?

    That's strange, because the swatch @Leaves shows that Acorn Kudu has a yellowish tint. Those shoes have a brownish tint like the Tan Kudu swatch. Maybe the original user you linked too was wrong or they've since renamed a few of the colors.

    Yeah, I pretty much figured my reasoning wasn't exactly how you went about doing things.

    Oh well, I'm sure some of my decisions wouldn't exactly work too well for you. LOL


    But that Frakenstitch boot certainly tugged at me I have to say, Great looking boot.

    Whatever floats your boat.



    I'm just glad @Leaves includes free watches with my shoe purchases. Because let me tell you, it can be pretty expensive if you have to actually pay for both hobbies.LOL

    I'd gladly order 20 shoes if @Leaves would see fit to include a Patek Repeater next time. LOL

    Thanks!



    Thanks for the feedback, great to hear.



    Sure you can, but that would have to be as a single MTO.


    Yes, that's an option for a single MTO, no doubt.


    No, no, no you got it all wrong. It's a free Paul Newman with every 10 MTOs. Sauce.

    Any plans on extending the donation of watches to Vacheron Constantins? I'd like a Patrimony or Malte, please.

    I'd say that it fits close to Forest in general but with a notably roomier instep.

    Sizing and fitting is entirely individual. It's not a general recommendation to size up or take a different width in the 82 last, but it's sometimes the case. For sizing & fitting inquiries, please e-mail us at sales@skoaktiebolaget.se.

    Please note that our respective sizing charts don't constitute any general recommendations.
