Yeah I don't see how it won't affect them. I also don't see how crushing consumption is the best way to get the economy on track and get your money back but that's the EU for you.    I'll be more general but the loonie isn't going to go up until the Bank of Canada increases rates or the price of oil increases. Both seem a ways off.
Not at all. The euro was depreciating as the deadline for a deal approached. Now that Greece is playing ball it's actually showing some strength. Probably stay around where it is for the next few months.
Just a note to everyone that while the loonie has tanked against the US dollar, it's actually done relatively well compared to the Euro. Although the Euro is rebounding after being dirt cheap in the spring, it's still about 4% cheaper than it was for most of last year. If you have the option of paying in Euros (some sites have multiple methods) that's the way to go. Obviously this should also factor into your online purchasing activity.    As an aside, I'm paying for my...
Those duty fees are absolutely brutal........how is it even possible?
Didn't get dinged with anything so.....
Got a pair of loafers from Velasca, an online retailer paired with Lanieri online MTM.    They are fantastic! Great construction for price.

They're obviously not world beaters, but for something I'll wear once a week through the summer months they fit the bill perfectly. 
Excuse the emergency tie, it was a casual Friday!

Wouldn't worry too much. It covers your butt which is the important thing. It may be on the shorter side, but the angle might be playing on that and if you hiked your trousers up a tad it would actually sit just right. The lapels are on the thinner side but definitely not too fashion forward. In fact most of the OTR suits I see these days have similar lapels. Overall it's a pretty nice fit especially for a first try.
"So what does this mean for the average Canadian?"   "Well Paul, I'm just going to ignore that question and tell you that I now have pretty much zero chance of breaking in a new pair of loafers before the summer is over. I hope Mr. Poloz is happy"
