It's possible that the fee may cover duties (@17%) and the FedEx brokerage fee ($10) but may not include taxes (GST/PST or HST).My last shipment was for 5 pairs of trousers, delivered in early April and I was hit a few weeks later with a bill from FedEx for $27 and change.Edit: I did NOT pay the $25 flat shipping fee for the order above.

You don't like the particular medallion on the Edgewear or you don't like any shoes with medallions?
I have the Lowndes and wear them often, but they feel too casual to wear with suits in my opinion (mine are brown).I wear them exclusively with odd trousers - grey flannels, linen, etc.I would get the cap-toe oxfords first as you'll get much more use out of them and the Lowndes later, if you find you'll be wearing odd trousers outside of work hours.I think even brown oxfords will be worn less by you than black ones - it seems you're currently more comfortable with...
