  Surprised that it's that much, but I suppose with the AUD$ in the doldrums, it's to be expected. Land's End, like a number of other places, calculates shipping cost based on the value of the shipment, rather than the weight, which is a bit frustrating if you're ordering something light but reasonably expensive, such as ties. Here's their table of international shipping costs (in USD$): http://www.landsend.com/customerservice/shipping/online/other-countries/  Value of...
 Yep, it's happening for me, too.
  I did a bit of an explanation over in the Kamakura thread a while back on how to order using the Japanese site: http://www.styleforum.net/t/333221/kamakura-shirts-madison-ave-store/1245#post_7994545 Of course, it's a bit out of date now that they don't ship overseas, but I hope that it still provides some assistance to anyone wishing to order from the Japanese Maker's Shirt site. 
 Can't do that anymore, unfortunately - they stopped international shipping from the Maker's Shirts site a few weeks ago.
  Oli, if you're unhappy with them, I think that you can send them back to CT any time in the first three months, regardless of whether they've been washed and/or worn. At least, that used to be CT's policy - they may have changed it since it's been a few years since I bought anything from them.
 I don't know whether they'll produce the Lindrick again for RL, but C&J does make a very similar boot in dark brown shell cordovan called the Skye II. It's almost identical to the Lindrick but it has a heel counter, whereas the Lindrick doesn't, and it doesn't have the punched seam across the ankle, whereas the Lindrick does.  http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/skye-2-darkbrown-cordovan 
   It's probably just because of that damned carpet that SG refuses to get rid of!    
  Very true. Still an enjoyable movie though, and I really like Kevin Spacey's performance as Verbal Kint. A lot of good lines, too.  "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone." "How do you shoot the devil in the back? What if you miss?"
 No, Cuba's become too popular over the past decade for that to have hipster cred.  North Korea's where it's at nowadays. 
Speaking of BBC articles such as the one Farhad posted above, here's another article from the BBC on fine watches:   "The Super-luxury watches that take years to make"   The article's mainly about Roger Smith, who apprenticed to George Daniels after he impressed Daniels by making his own watch from scratch. Following Daniels' death, Smith remained on the Isle of Man and continued to make watches under the name RW Smith:   http://www.rwsmithwatches.com/home/
