Just got off the phone with Drew.  Some cool leather choices in both black for the chelsea or sidezip, as well as interesting lighter brown colors, and a few good options for a stitchdown "tough" boot as well.  I'll get back to you guys when I have more concrete information. The sidezip has never been done before for production, so it would be pretty exciting to be the first people to do one! Cheers, Fok.
I'll need to look this place up.   I grew up eating bombolini all day long, but was recently told by our social media manager, who is Italian, that this is a breakfast food only (this explains the looks I get when I order on to eat with my 5 p.m. espresso while in Italy), so I may only have one shot at this. Chocolate and vanilla custard or fruit jam, in a nicely risen dough, deep fried, and dusted with sugar.  With steaming hot coffee.  You don't get much better than that.
People had better sign up. I refuse to have Ed again. It's just wrong.
Bummer, it would have been good to see you.So... No love for Sullivan Street Bakery bombolini?
It can still be done that way.  It's mighty uncomfortable though.  Just be warned.
For all people who can get to NYC on Nov 5, Richard of The Shoe Healer will be at our The Proper Kit Trunk Show: http://www.styleforum.net/t/529915/the-proper-kit-trunk-show-saturday-nov-5-new-york-by-styleforum-and-aandh-magazine hopefully with some Trickers.
And yes, you can look here: https://www.cbp.gov/trade/programs-administration/determining-duty-rates and try to figure things out.  But it really is up to a bureaucrat, and trust me, while you can appeal a government decision, unless it is in the thousands of dollars or a clear mistake (like, they charged you for 1000 items instead of 3) which has happened to me, good luck getting your money back.  Even in that case, it took me nearly a year to sort out.
Get it from the US, then.  Unless you have a customs broker, it's up to the judgement of a faceless bureaucrat somewhere.
BTW, NYC guys - who has the best bombolini in town for that 10:30 crowd?  Gonna get 100 or so and a handful of carafes for the vendors, organizers, and whoever else shows up early.
I'm seriously considering getting one of these, from @PierpontLeather , for my wife, for Christmas. Checj out the stitching and finishing.
