We ship with Swedish Posten, they work with USPS in the US. I don't know who they use in Canada. It seems extremely rare that our clients are hit by customs.

I got hit with a huge customs bill for 3 pairs of trees and a pair of shoes.

 

$33.

Only time I used dhl was with farfetch, who includes duties in their upfront price. I've been screwed by dhl enough times to avoid ever dealing wih them unless it's farfetch.

My Galways that you shipped were delivered locally by Canada Post.  No duties.

Well then you would double-hate living in Australia.

 

My brother has lived in Canada for many years. On visits back to Aus, he always remarks on how incredibly expensive everything is here.

 

His comment is "Australians seem to love ripping each other off outrageously".

 

When the A$ strengthened last year, prices for imported goods mostly didn't drop. Now that it's weakening, prices are going up. And most Aus-made goods are more expensive here than overseas. Go figure...

We use EMS for shipping and we have not had any customers complain about taxes so far.  Using EMS means no shipping on the weekends but the cost is reasonable and most times no taxes.

Hey guys,

Here's a quick cross-post of styles that we have on order in our Streetwear & Denim thread. If you have any questions or need any advice, please feel free to PM or email me at anytime.

First off, we're running a Carmina version of a John Lobb WWII-era Field Boot. It will be made on the Oscar last, and it's being offered in three different leathers:


Brown Hatch Grain WWII Field Boot Special Order


Cognac Shell Cordovan WWII Field Boot Special Order


Hand-Burnished Scotchgrain WWII Field Boot Special Order

Stopped by the national WW2 museum in NOLA where i spotted some cool ww2 boots. took some pics that reminded me of this makeup

Damn you for posting this. censored.gif

I just talked myself out of the Jumper boot and I wasn't even aware of the Epaulet one. I need to unsubscribe myself to some threads before I wipe out our London/Paris fund and my girl bans me from the interwebs.

A bit off track but do Canadians have to pay anything for the health insurance? I'm at $164 a month so that's a bit. And I probably only get 1 dhl shipment every two months

I think Alden has exclusive rights to those particular shell colors.
