Group spree for Pantherella socks

Hi guys! Is anyone interested in shopping from Pantherella.com?

The offerings are plenty but the shipping is a little expensive (GBP20), so looking for people to do a group spree

Any suggestions what to get?

Currently wearing carmina for about 3yrs, almost every day.... love the comfort of the leather.... thinking of trying other Brand’s.... any suggestions?

Anyone has a size comparison of yanko and carmina? If I’m wearing 9.5 for carmina... should I get the same size for yanko derby?

I just bought a pair of Yanko’s derby. And I used to have a pair of Carmina. My sincere advice is that you should really not buy any shoes without trying them on beforehand. My sizes have varied by +/- 1 full size across brands, lasts within same brand, types (oxfords, derby, loafer) within same brand. And dress shoes are not forgiving when you’re sized wrongly.

my barker chelsea boots just arrived from robinsonshoes...however...abit of crease on toecap area for both shoes and box has a hole lol.

it's common? or got ground for complaint?

Update: they offered me refund 10% or replacement with return postage on them.
Told them i prefer full refund+return postage on them. Some emails to and fro and finally they say ok.

However, i've checked speedpost...cost about sgd 70 to send back UK. Forgot to ask robinsonshoes if they have a cap on return postage reimbursement. Anyone here knows? Thanks in advance.

Should just take the 10%. Your shoes will get creased anyway.

If online store , why would they have display shoe? It could be due to shipping mishandled ie drop on the floor hard causing tip to hit hard
