Does one generally get better pricing ordering from C&J in New York (no sales tax if shipped to another state) or from the UK factory (do they deduct VAT, and what is the shipping cost)?

Thanks!

I just kinda put a spit-shine over the damage.


I'm just amazed that it worked so well. I might have to spit shine some black cap toes that have similar abrasions. So you did pretty much what you would do on a non-damaged shoe (e.g. no extra wax was needed?).

Yeah, normal spit shine. More wax was needed to fill up the 'ridges'.

I have ordered from one of the stores on Jermyn St in London directly.  On both those occasions, they deducted the VAT and shipped via Parcel Force (UK mail) which was transferred to the USPS and I paid no customs fees.  The shipping was about £30 each time.  I have never ordered from or priced at the New York store but compared to Barneys prices,  you save money by going direct to C&J.

Just ordered a pair of Coniston boots, hopefully the instep is roomier on the boots.

From recent experience, I ordered a pair of Skye II's from Jermyn street.  Including shipping and a pair of shoe trees it came out to be $100 less than what the NY store quoted me for the boots alone.  

 

I plan to go this route on future orders based off this experience.  I also received better customer service from the Jermyn street shop than the NY shop (though I only communicated via email).

Cheers, I'm going to give it a try.

Let's say you get hit by customs, would you at least break even with the price at the New York store?

We'll need to get someone else to answer as I've never been dinged by customs so not sure what the charge or percentage is.  My guess is it's going to be pretty close.

Charges should be about 8.5% plus $12 to $30 or so fees depending on courier.
That's assuming the sender fills out the customs form correctly and the courier's agent enters in the right tariff code.

Never dealt with the Jermyn Street shop but I placed an order from the NY shop ~6 weeks ago and they get an F for communication. Can't wait to get my shoes as I know I'll love them but doubt I ever order from that store again.

How are you guys ordering from C&J...email or the enquiry form on their website?

I used to e-mail the order forms to them.

I said it before a long time ago but I'll say it one more time -- I went to the NY store and the salesman working the floor there was shockingly cold, rude, inattentive, and dismissive.  I'm a polite, well-dressed (I like to think) guy in my 30s, so while I might be a bit younger than the typical customer there, I don't know that my appearance should have made me an automatic non-entity in the eyes of the salesman.  Regardless, I was treated as completely unwelcome.  F-.  I do understand that others have had better experiences with better salespeople there.
