Hey,

 

You guys still have the "Burgundy Beauty" from Enzo? Can't seem to find it on your website anymore. If not, is it still available via MTO?

 

Thanks!

I get my personal things ship to my house shoes, cloths etc I try not to have them ship to my office. Because higher chance of theft. I also work in small office setting. Too many nosey coworkers & ppl.

So it's post office for me. But frankly, this would be the case even if I could have office deliveries. Part of the reason that couriers can speed packages through customs is that they are hyper-aggressive in collecting duties and taxes on all commercial goods - which is about 99% of what customs really cares about anyway. As a result, I am not only almost guaranteed to get hit with duties collected on an international package, the courier will make damn sure to apply every single tax that could conceivably be applied. FedEx is spectacularly thorough in this regard. And then they will charge me for the privelege on top of it.

With the sheer volume of postal material coming in daily, customs really can only spot-check when left to do it themselves. So the chances of the package sailing through with no duties or taxes assesed at all are very good. And when they are assessed, at least they don't charge you for the work they did in making the assessment.

Besides, do I really want my employer and co-workers knowing how many damned shoes I buy? No, I don't. I really don't.

On a recent delivery (NOT Skoak) I had specifically requested trackable postal shipping, but the vendor decided to ship by UPS anyway. Massive headache on my end, as a result. Missed delieries at home (d'uh, I work for a living) - multiple calls by me to their 1-800 number, assurances that the package would be held for pickup but that message never seemed to get to the actual drivers. Three missed deliveries at home (d'uh, still working...) and then they say they are returning the package to the vendor because it is "undeliverable". 4th call to the 800 number finally gets the package held..... at the airport. 40 min drive there. 40 min drive back. This type of BS does NOT happen with postal deliveries here.

I think a suede chelsea would be more versatile. The braided boot is way cool but kinda funky and a bit out there. A nice addition to an already well established and versatile rotation, but not the best choice if you are seeking maximum versatility out of this particular pair. Not sure that Fox is the most versatile shade, though. I would get more wear out of a slightly darker shade.
I am sorry you had to deal with all that I had to deal with similar situation but not that bad. And that is why I agree with you regarding local postal service. And thank you for your input I really appreciate it icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It is currently sold out and we have not yet decided if we will restock it again. However, it is available to order as a Single MTO for a good deal since the surcharge for Bonafè is only 15%. Please e-mail us for further questions.

Thanks. Man, so many great pairs in bracken over the last few weeks.
post #13769 of 23837

Wow

Those chukkas look really good. 

Must say that IRL the bracken museum is actually darker than I expected, with rather subtle mottling, which is good, very good.
