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.

    Cheers,

    [​IMG] Appreciate it!

    I was waiting for somebody to explain to me that Sweden does not use the Bolivar.

    That's how I pay for all my Skoak orders. Ends up costing me $27.43 for a pair of EG.

    Oops. Did I say that out loud?

    $27.43 is too much for me. Do they accept payment by installments? I demand the shoes to be shipped as soon as the first installment payment is made.

    When an allotment for 10 boots comes in, do we have to go Hunger Games to see who gets them?

    well most of us are on Patrik's super secret list and have the chance to order them before they ever go public...so typically you are on safe ground if/when they get released publicly.


    I am only joking, please don't take this seriously [​IMG]

    Best first post ever.

    Yes.

    Btw, this whole concept of a running list for a boot for which there is no shell has led me to coin a new term:

    "Shell-squatting": Staking out a claim for a spot on a list for a shell shoe/boot/item that does not exist and for which no shell is even allocated.

    Questions for Carmina shoe owners, Leaves, or Gabriel.

    For the Rain last, what brand and/or shape of shoe tree do you find to fit the best if not not using the Carmina brand? How well does the Skoaktiebogalet brand shoe tree fit in the Rain last?

    I've been shell squatting on those Kudu Ishams since those pictures were posted last week . . .

    BTW, this is a different list than the watch list - the group of people who receive complementary watches with their order of shoes.

    I just use Allen Edmonds trees (made by Woodlore, which AE owns, and supplies trees to Joseph A. Bank also) in my Carminas. They're not as fancy but they do the job well enough.

    Thanks owenau1989 for keeping the list up to date.

    To be honest I haven't read all the previous posts but I really don't know why you're being poked fun at and I find some of the jokes quite distasteful. The original request was for burgundy shell, to which Patrick replied it was not possible at the moment, and then some people suggested the MTO could be done in other colours, and it seems to be what owenau1989 is enquiring about.

    That being said, I think Patrick said he was going to visit Carmina factory on Friday and he'd ask about shell availability.

    To be fair, regarding the size change, you should blame Alden. Some retailers quote such long lead times that, yes, it is possible to change (in some cases) your requested size, sometimes a few months after the initial preorder.

    I think they would be perfect. I have a few pairs of rain and 1 pair of skoaks trees with a few more with my upcoming MTO's. They are fantastic and I highly recommend them

    Let's start a list for Patek 5140s. I'll be first.
