So I got a special spring offering for you today! I present to you the Quarbaro (Quilted Barbaro - sorry I just could not help myself).

Are these a loafer or slipper/house shoe?

Use code staywell for 10% off all items in store.

We have to adjust to the current global health situation and we realise we have to encourage even more people to shop online instead of in our brick & mortar store. Normally, on a warm, sunny day like this our store would be buzzing with people looking to gear up for spring. The reality is that Stockholm is a Ghost Town right now, like many other cities all over the world. We will make it through this but we need your continued support.

Stay healthy, stay well and protect our old and frail by following the recommendations by the authorities in your area. Thank you!

I can't match your photos (well done!) today but I received my pair as well. This is my 1st pair of EBs. I have to admit that they fit a little differently than I had anticipated. This is a little more akin to how I expected the 74945 last to fit. They are a hair on the snug side for me around the midfoot and at the ball but I am pretty sure that with a tiny bit of sole and upper break in they will be perfect.

The overall fit seems more like a slightly less elongated and more narrow Carmina Soller than it does Detroit, which is I think how the fit was described for these on the Skoak site. They actually kind of remind me of the C&J 240 boots from Brooks Bros but just a hair slimmer at the toe. Nice boots. If and when I get something on the 74945, I have a feeling that I'll need to either size up or get them feathered at the ball on a custom order.

I'll try to grab some pics in better light. The color variation on these is absolutely gorgeous and unfortunately it doesnt really show in my pic.

Skoak is almost a joke (in the best way possible) in their turnaround time.
Nearly every order I've ever made with AE has been the same if not longer delivery times from my recent Skoak order. And AE is in fact CONSIDERABLY closer. ;)

Speaking of, no photos as of yet but my calf/suede Parks arrived and they are fantastic! So glad I took the plunge with my Rain size. The fit is spectacular, they arrived in just a few days, couldn't be happier. Hopefully photos once I get some wax on the toe.... :hide:

These are really cool! Yeah a loden would be epic.
@Leaves you might have missed this: any plans for a loden green Barbaro this season? Otherwise, could it be gmto? (Not sure what timelines would be given the circumstances?)

No Loden planned. Factory is closed for a couple of weeks at least I would guess. So lead times would likely be 4-6 months.

@Leaves, any potential restock of the L&T Kingsley Utah Grain in 8.5UK? I assume since the factory is closed it's a no. Are S last and T last sizing generally the same? I wear an 8.5UK in the Denham.
