Sad news.

With fedex the bonafe shells will be pricey!

Change is not immidiate, if you have already ordered a pair then of course the quoted price will be honoured. When we have all the details we will inform you of the new policies and we will have a grace period before the new policies kick in. I will try to be as transparent as possible throughout the process. There's "no cow on the ice" yet if I may use Swedish expression.

So U.S. retailers want a level playing field huh? It's funny how they never had problems taking an advantage of globalization when they were outsourcing the production of goods. Now that it has come to bite them they are screaming a bloody murder.

Bonafe Norvegese Jodhpurs finally landed! 

 

 

 

 

I sized down to 9.5UK but they're still really long on my feet (I take a 10UK in Carmina Forest/Oscar and a US11D in most stuff). Here's a comparison shot to my burgundy shell Frankenstitches in 10UK - color brothers from another European mother?

 

 

 

 

 

Super pointed toe on these! Even at a half size down the last is still quite elongated and there's a teensy bit of heel slip. I have to wear these with the straps buckled to the last hole for a tight fit.

 

Another thing to note is that the straps are just a teensy bit wider than the buckles - it's quite a squeeze to get them through. I hope it doesn't cause any problems with the leather in the long run!

Do you mean all postal mail deliveries such as via Canada Post or do you mean only orders to USA using USPS?

Getting rid of Canada Post option will mean I can't purchase from you anymore, and I have several pre-orders placed already that I would not have ordered if FedEx to Canada was the only option... Yikes.

I've always wondered whether this sort of thing is a violation of antitrust laws. Not that I'm an expert in that field, nor would I actually do anything about it if I were. But an interesting phenomenon.

As I said before, no orders that have already been placed will be effected. I'm just giving an early heads up that changes will come. The only orders that will be effected are the ones placed after the new policies kicks in, sometime later this year.
