I own two shoes on the 348 last in 9.5 E and the Chukka in 10 D (UK sizes) in the snuff suede. The Chukka is definitely a width narrower than the 348's.

US has $200 exemption (only $100 for gifts?!) for duties through the mail.

Carpet beetles (and other insects) also love wool garments and are responsible for most clothing damage according to the EPA. Shake and brush the garment and I'd eventually clean everything to kill any larvae. That cedar blocks kills moth larvae is a myth as far as I know. It's actually the oil in the wood that's responsible but must be in high enough concentrations.
^^ They deducted VAT at checkout when I ordered a few months ago.
Sorry, drbaw. So it was you who took the 28, Seventy!
