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.

    I think that you're referring to my post in the Carmina thread: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0ijZ0up4MPE

    Do please note that my speech is somewhat dialectal.
    Leaves, I'll drop by the store the next time I visit Stockholm, but as a "poor" university student I think it'll be quite some time before I have to opportunity to travel. I do look forward to seeing G&G shoes in person.

    Yes that was it, thanks. A word of warning to tourists in Stockholm: Be careful not to confuse "Skoaktiebolaget" with "Systembolaget".

    Edit: (But perhaps you should visit both anyway)

    New Carmina Pre-order System

    Hi guys, I just wanted to let you know about our new pre-order system.

    For the coming fall season we are launching a new Pre-order System for Carmina. We will offer this service as an extension to our popular Group MTO Program. This will hopefully remedy the risk of people finding out that their size has run out in a certain model. In order to participate in the Pre-order runs and have your own production slot we will require a 25% deposit.

    Sign-ups for the Carmina Fall 2013 Pre-order will start today, March 6, and close on April 30. Delivery will be around September 1. For each season we will have three new models (dependning on interest of course). For our first Pre-order Season we have chosen these models:

    1. “Cognac Cordovan Longwing” - Model 532 on the Detroit last in Cognac Cordovan. Double Dainite sole with storm welt. Price: 5200 SEK (4160 ex VAT).

    2. “Navy Balmora Bootl” - The 80092 Balmoral boot on the Forest last in navy Calf and a Navy Suede upper. Single Dainite rubber sole. Price: 3800 SEK (3040 ex VAT).

    3. “Burgundy Cordovan Chukka”- The Carmina model 905 on the rain last in Burgundy Cordovan. Single Dainite sole. Price 5600 SEK (4480 ex VAT).

    Shoe trees optional at 800 SEK (640 ex VAT).
    Shipping Worldwide - 300 SEK
    Shipping EU - 200 SEK
    Shipping Sweden, Denmark, Finland - free

    Please e-mail us at sales@skoaktiebolaget.se for more information or if you wish to book a production slot.

    Each participant will receive a complimentary pair of Sozzi quality wool socks (above the calf) in their size.

    Oh my those look gorgeous, Leaves! Too bad it's a bit over my "poor-students-budget"! Hopefully I'll get a part-time job real soon and can finaly start saving up for some Skoaktiebolaget shopping!

    Leaves, can you comment on the instep and heel dimensions of the Detroit and Rain lasts? I might be interested if one has a low instep and narrow heels?

    Hi everyone,
    Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Adam and I work with Patrik (Leaves) as store manager of Skoaktiebolaget. Some of you might know me from the store and others from e-mail conversations. I have been following Style Forum for a while, but this is my first post.

    It is now five months since we opened the store and we have been very happy with the response so far, and overwhelmed by all the questions and e-mails we receive each day from such far-away places as California, Singapore, Hong Kong and Syndey to name just a few.

    Hopefully this thread can be a good source for all those who are interested in learning more about our products and our store. I will also try my best to participate in other threads of interest.

    Please feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions, or contact sales@skoaktiebolaget.se.

    Both Rain and Detroit are wide fitting lasts = wide heels. Detroit has a lower instep compared to Rain. Simpson would probably be the best option for you. It looks very similar to Rain, but has both a narrow heel and low instep.

    Leaves,

    Previously I believe someone mentioned in the Edward Green thread that you can order a different width in one of your stock models without an MTO charge. Is this correct?

    For example I would be interested in ordering the stock Galway you are getting in a Narrow width.
    Thanks!

    This is correct. There is no surcharge if you want a different width in stock models but production time is the same as for MTO, around 6 months.

    What model of Galway are you guys getting into your stock? Are they any plans for Skoaktiebolaget to order Galways in the future?

    Bonafé will be about 5500 SEK (4400 ex VAT, approx. $670). Button boots will be about 6500 SEK (5200 ex VAT, approx. $790). MTO will be an extra 15%.



    Dark Oak/Walnut Country Calf on a Dainite sole. This is a group MTO so we won't carry a full line of sizes, we just ordered a few extra pairs on top of the Group MTO. PM me if you're interested in pre-booking these extra pairs. They should arrive in early May.

    If interest is high enough, sure thing we'll order more Galways. I'd love to do a new Group MTO as with this last Galway.

    Just a quick reminder for all of you Gaziano & Girling fans out there, this Friday and Saturday (March 8-9) G&G will be hosting a trunk show at Skoaktiebolaget, Humlegårdsgatan 4, Stockholm. Both Tony and Dean will be there. This is the first proper G&G trunk show ever in Scandinavia.
