    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.

    Sorry guys. There was only enough for one more and I emailed Skoak right after Patrick posted. I will be putting the deposit down and probably go with the same makeup but I'm still thinking through design choices.

    On the bright side,at least I post photos often :)

    I feel like I should get in on this pre-price hike madness but nothing stock fits a need. Is there a way to see all the impending Skoab GMTO's that are actually happening, or need one more person to leave the station? I tried looking thru this thread and the EG/GG threads but only got totally confused

    I think we made a right choice ordering that Burnham in Deep Burnished Cedar.

    My understanding from my emails with Skoak today, is that there is no vintage grey that they know of, only pearl grey. Pearl grey, from what i can see in google pics is a museum type leather (like a pearl) with a purplish overtone.

    I would have been down for a vintage grey, like in the Canterbury pic, but i'm not feeling the pearl grey...

    I know that feel, vintage grey is really a good looking color, its like lighter color of deco black and personality I like darker grey color

    How exactly does this apply to things "in stock" but with a restock coming in? I inquired about the Carmina brown calf double monks on the Simpson last back in December and was put on the waitlist for my size. I was told they would be coming in this month.

    Is the scenario if they come in this week, I pay the current price, but if they come in after this week I pay the higher price?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Ironist. That is a nice pairing, really well matched. Not spoilered for ease of comparison with...

    a picture I found, which I assume has a similar color scheme since it's listed as snuff suede Simpson last (from an former Epaulet employee)

    Trousers to me here are dark mid-gray to light charcoal (I know I'm splitting hairs). It works ok, I think, just to put one bound. I would definitely not go darker.

    Curious if other folks have opinions.

    So, after some soul searching, i think i am going all in this month and placing x3 Arran MTO orders with Skoak.

    This would mean that i miss out on the GG Burnham GMTO deadline, and i will have to push my EG Shanklin MTO by a few months as well. But it would be silly for me to pass up saving $150 on each of these now, as opposed to placing the order after the price hike.

    No better time to order your grail GG or EG shoes i figure, my wallet is going to hate me this month... :fu:

    We very rarely give exact dates for arrivals, we provide estimates. If a restock is late it's not much we can do about it as our estimates are based on preliminary delivery dates from Carmina. Hopefully the model you are waiting for will become available before the price increase, and then we will make it available in our web shop. If they do not, then yes you'd have to pay the higher price, which is about 3% higher than our current price (3% is the planned increase for Carmina and Bonafé).
