Yep, western Canada. Hanon deducted VAT and was 'friendly' regarding the customs part of your q. An important factor -- they used domestic mail vs. say Fedex or UPS, so it came through Canada Post with no customs. This was my experience with a few orders, and I would venture if Canada Post even paid attention, the charge would still be minimal.
I believe some models of Acr's bags like the 5TS have gone through iterations with fabric / design tweaks over the past few years and have been made by Bagjack over that period. I happen to like most of their bags, but can see how they may not be as attractive to some peeps.
Slightly OT, but still in the technical theme. I posted about this in another thread, but Bagjack makes some great looking messengers. Check out the features of the Next Level Messenger. It's no wonder Errolson Hugh chose to partner with them to produce some of Acr's bags. I was hot on this Bagjack but wound up getting an Acr 5TS. Btw, there are some good dealers for Acr in N. America like Haven, but I ordered through Hanon. They're good to deal with too, and the...

Don't this has been posted yet.

I have made it less than 5x, and while I enjoyed the results, have always reflected on the effort afterwards (buttermilk soaked, double-dipped, shallow fry, clean up etc etc). I do mainly karaage now, which is simpler obviously, but not what we're talking about here.
If I'm to be honest, I love the one WM piece I have (a tweed / Gore winter jacket) but otherwise am not too crazy about the most recent collections. I'm somewhat disappointed they discontinued the Blk line :I has a sad: But this could also be attributable to my recent monochromatic, i.e. boring preferences.
Herno Laminar, designed by Errolson Hugh (of Acr as you probably know). Have seen little on this other than a few blog posts, so may not even be out yet. Images at least look good, stuff uses Gore and I'm assuming a much lower price point than Acr. http://onandbeyond.com/2012/02/blogger-project-herno-laminar http://www.vogue.it/en/uomo-vogue/latest-on-fashion/2012/01/herno-laminar
Thanks for the report and photos. I haven't seen the documentary but a few excerpts from it (that probably lasted almost as long as a meal there). One thing I was wondering about -- Is his 20 minute experience unique among this level of sushi in Japan?
