Did you notice their shipping fee stays the same no matter how many shoes you buy? Good strategy, I was going to get one pair and thought the 40 pound shipping was kind of steep so I decided might as well get more if the shipping costs stay the same.

That was me. :-)

Just got an email from nick. They will begin to send out shipping details at the end of the week and begin to ship next week.

That gets me thinking maybe I can get two pairs of loafers to my ongoing order.

Bad Benjamin :cloud:I did find another pair on eBay in normal width but for double the price.

 

I'm sure you could add to your order but they're going fast.

I got the email from Nick, also, and I had done 2.seperate orders a couple of days apart. Trusting that they will not combine the 2 orders or I may be hit with big customs charge GST and all 😱. That's why I did seperate orders as we are exempt GST if under a certain value.....
Got a Paul Smith grey suede Willoughby and a Chambord

They'll also include more products. I think they did a staggered roll out last year.

You can cope it at  the stylerush and have it shipped domestically.

So no GST, no import taxes.

Couldn't resist the temptation and got me two pairs

So did I icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif One purple calf and one purple suede.

I kopped a pair of in purple suede and another in grey museum calf.  I actually prefer purple museum for the calf but Nick didn't have my size.  Am thinking of getting a custom patina job done by either Dandy Shoe Care or my local artist if the grey museum colour doesn't work out for me.

 

Here's an example of the work done here in HK:

 

GC Cleverley Reuben:

 

 

After patina:

 

 

 

Given the rather light colours of the JL for Paul Smith shoes, I'm sure a custom patina would look awesome and at the same time, unique!
