Crockett and Jones did something similar to P.LAL
It is true, sadly. I was informed of by by email after ordering an AS and I quote
"I'd like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the fact that since January 15th (today) we are now no longer able to sell AS Exclusive outside of the EU market due to AS licensing agreements. In future therefore we would only be able to sell you AS Country, Sanders, accessories etc and not AS Exclusive standard collection. Since your Radwell order is already in place, we will of course honour this, but sadly after today that will no longer be possible. We hope to be able to continue with our hugely successful MTO SF programme though, since these would be shoes not available elsewhere they would not fall under the rules of any licensing agreement."
