I agree with this.

There are still some basic models i would really like to have, so i seriously hope Nick starts up the monthly model deals he use to do. I would definitely be interested...

170k sounds a little bit high for C&J but in the ballpark. $100 mil sounds high for revenues. Unless it's a shoe sold at a C&J store, they're selling at wholesale price to retailers. G&G produces wwwwaaayyyyyyy fewer shoes than C&J.

Well then none of those shoes will age beautifully. Perhaps thats the allure of applied patina; many do not have the time or patience to wait for acquired patina.

If you're worried about pricing, you might want to consider purchasing from Leatherfoot due to the fallng price of the Canadian dollar. Did a quick comparison, and a pair of Grosvenors from Nick costs roughly $1361 USD, compared to $1037 USD from Leatherfoot. That's a savings of $324.

Hope that helps!

I'll look into that, but unless they offer wide (or in my case extra wide) sizes, MTO is my only option frown.gif

Shipping is free, though pretty sure you will get hit with custom, how much is custom?
post #11624 of 21771

Depends what the label the cost of the items when shipping and what the purpose of the item is...

 

If they label it at true cost and purpose you may get hit.

 

If they label it is an advertising piece or something and cheap price like $50 you won't get hit...and yes, many companies do this...from all over the world

Advice I got from Leatherfoot was customs should be under 8%. Fwiw.
