I picked up the Vintage 2007's and Barker Black Crown loafers. Already have the Vale's, Tudor's and Brackley's from previous sale opportunities.

These are made by Crockett and Jones right? I want to buy them, but I need a proxy because I'm in Toronto. (earlier I posted that I'm looking for one in the b&s forum)... The most certainly are NOT C&J. Clearly listed as made in Italy...
