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.

    Very busy, but the boys have been working around the clock lately to get all orders onto those courier trucks. I had to restrain myself not to post the new styles here, but the boys need a couple of hours of peace and quite. Then it's back to the coal mines! :D

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I've got a feeling things are going to get busier.

    Photos look great. Instakop.

    Those burgundy museum Carminas look great!

    Only makes me more excited about the museum Bonafe that may come to fruition!

    Wow! The new arrivals are awesome. My wallet thanks you for not ordering a 5.5, but my heart is sad. These will move quickly! :happy:

    Question on the String loafers from Carmina:

    Do they actually tie? As in, can you make the instep tighter or looser based on how tight you tie the string, or is it purely decorative?

    Thanks!

    The loafers from Carmina, is it Goodyear or blake?

    I know it's been mentioned before but if I wear Carmina Forest and Inca lasts in UK8 (perfect fit) and Rain in 8UK (very loose heel) should I get loafers on Uetam in 7.5UK or 8UK?

    cheers

    All shoes that we carry from Carmina are Goodyear welted.


    Please email sales@skoaktiebolaget.se for specific fitting advise.

    Ugh so tempted by the Adelaide, I just wish it had one more line of broguing around the heel like the AS Moore or G&G St. James II.

    I actually think it would look too busy with a heel cap. Because the Adelaide curves back longer than on a normal Adelaide, this provides better balance. On the St. James it makes more sense.
