A question for those who've ordered from Bespoke England. For the Wigmore there is an option to place an order for a delivery in three months if they don't currently have your size in stock. Do they charge you the full amount upon receipt of your order or are you charged only after the shoes are completed and ready to ship? For a regular MTO I know it's 50% up front and the remaining 50% upon completion of the shoes but I'm not sure these qualify as a real MTO as there is no upcharge.
Also, has any Canadians ordered from them? How much were the custom/duties? While the sale prices are attractive customs/duties are no joke.
Regarding Canadian customs and duties...Bespoke England sent my shoes via Royal Mail. As is usual with a national postal service (including the United States Postal Service) rather than a commercial shipper (such as Fedex, UPS or DHL), my package was delivered through Canada Post with no additional duty, taxes or other charges.

I'm going to try and stay strong and not pick up those Oakhams...partially because I still favor JL Chapels for that style and partially in case Nick decides to put the St. James II into the sale as I'd want to KOP 2 colors of those...
