I asked the salesperson in the NY about this yesterday. He said it will only be on discontinued models, not anything in the store currently. They don't even know which models, as they are waiting on the shipment from England.

The Oriel 2 is a nice model.

Same :(  Stopped by the one in San Francisco this morning, their stock was looking pretty sparse.  On the flip side they had new Isaia suits for 1200 a piece, not bad.

I had my doubts at first, but after I tried them on, I couldn't resist.

It looks like they use DHL though. In my experience I've been dinged with customs/duty about 1/3 of the time with DHL.
If you do get hit with duty, it'll be around 9%.
DHL's fees aren't too bad. My last DHL shipment fees were $6.50.
Personally I'd just order them from Barney's. Bird-in-the-hand and all.
Also, given past experience with Barney's, I wouldn't cancel your CF order until you get them.
Barney's web site sometimes has a tendency to show availability that isn't there.

Good call on the advice about not canceling the Christopher Forbes order. Almost five days after ordering a pair of Islays from Barney's I have been informed that my order has been cancelled because they can't fulfill it. Weak.

-FYI heads up, just returned a pair of Black Weymouth, handgrade line, size 9.5 US to Barney's (I purchased @ first sale price of ~$530, now marked down to $369) as I decided to get a different pair. I'd imagine it should be coming back online in a week or two if anyone missed out!

I purchased a Crockett & Jones Boots from Barneys called the Arran The leather is Cavalry Calf which looks and feels like shell cordovan, but it is not.
I am looking for advise on polishing and caring for them. I am not sure what is Cavary Calf, perhaps it is corrected leather, but it feels a bit waxy.
Any advice from all you expertrs is greatly appreciated.

Isn't it the same leather used on the Northcote? Both the black and brown? I care for them as I do any calfskin shoe
