@Leaves

I saw the photo of the hatch green Thorpe. Stunning.

Is it as dark indoors as the smooth BRG?

@Leaves can you post an image of the Goma Para? Or a link to a pair that has them?

 

Thanks,

Surprised there hasn't been mention of that Norvegese longwing boot.  Very nice IMO.

Shhh. I'm hoping no one sees it until I clear out room for a pair.

@Iyor Any difference in the fit and comfort between the lazyman and the laced shoes? How do you feel about the pig skins relative to other smooth and grain leathers please?

Canadian experiences with paying the premium for Canada Post shipping vs FedEx?

 

Looking to pick up a pair of Carmina chelseas but dont know if I can stomach a $200+ customs bill on top of their $500 price tag. Would just pick up a pair of C&Js next time im in NY at that price point.

FedEx will collect full duties and taxes and then some, and maybe charge you a brokerage fee as an added bonus.

Canada post may or may not collect any duties and taxes, but won't add a brokerage fee. But it takes longer.

I hate all couriers so I go post unless I have no other choice.YMMV.

Thank you Roger.

 

So I am guessing its hit or miss in terms of duties and taxes with Canada Post, whereas Fedex will get you every time. I think I will go ahead and pay the premium for Canada Post.

@RogerP is right on the money.
Local post tends to slip through but is slower.
I'd definitely go for that, over any of those thoroughly incompetent, unscrupulous couriers.

Dear gents at Skoaktiebolaget,

Is the leather of the GG Glencore boots English grain or Highland grain? The description says it is Highland but it looks like English to me.

Regards,

I've been hit for duties/taxes on the last 5 or 6 items with Canada Post.  I consider it pretty much a guarantee now.  I even got hit for duties on a pair of Made In USA Rancourts.  They were shipped from a EU retailer though, so I'm not sure if NAFTA applies.
