Do you have a price list for C&J in England? I only have a booklet for the NY shop. I didn't realize the UK store would ship to me.

For Benchgrade I think they start at GBP 320 - VAT as long as prices were not raised.

Well, closer to $470 if you include shipping and CC fees for international transactions. Still better than getting it locally.

I don't have a price list, I email them and ask; and compare to the online sellers.

But considering that the wait time is 0 in most cases, it's well worth it.

That's why I buy from Bodileys. No import duties and free shipping. Do you think the lower price from the C&J store makes it worthwhile? They charge shipping and I'm not sure they will help you around the import duties. What's your experience?

Import duty is a hit or miss thing...

and make no mistake, shipping is not free, you have paid for it.

C&J charge for shipping, bodileys don't but thair price is a tad higher than C&J, shipping inclusive.

With C&J seemingly doing very well financially at the moment it wouldn't surprise me if they were trying to beat Tricker's for the POW's Royal Warrant.

Is that dealing directly with the factory? Last time I spoke to anyone about this, I seem to remember being quoted £115 for a factory resole and £90 for a resole of any non-C&J pair.

These were prices quoted by the Birmingham shop, for shoes and boots dropped off there with them handling all transportation. They use Koko's in London for the non-Crocketts stuff.

Thanks for the info guys! I think I'l try and see what I can have done about a dainite sole before they ever ship stateside.

CTB- I saw quite a bit of your collection on that thread the other night, it inspired serious envy. But it was actually your pictures on this thread that made the Islays and the Skyes go from boots I wanted to boots I needed. My wife may have reason to hate you if I end up getting Skyes before even breaking in the Islays.

Cheers! I'll do a proper family pic (or set of pics) one day.

 

You'll love the Skye, by the way...
