I had a string of several postal hits, but over the last couple months it's been a bit better than 50/50.

Yeah I figured as much, I've noticed that MTL is much much worse for getting hit vs Toronto or Vancouver for airmail, don't know why that is. I guess the $40 premium for Canada post is worth the small chance of avoiding a $200+ customs bill.

 

Ever since an Omega Speedmaster I bought snuck in duty/tax free a year or so ago, thus avoiding $500+ in taxes/duties, I've figured it was worth the chance.

 

P.S., if you still have the customs form for those rancourts, mail off a Duty refund request to the CBSA casual refunds center with proof they are made in the USA and they will cut you a cheque for the duties they charged you.

In the last 2-3 months, I've managed to get away with not paying any customs. I have a package arriving later this week,but it's two pairs of boots, so I have a feeling I won't be so lucky. Occasionally they'll only charge me GST/PST as well.

Props to Skoak for their consistently excellent service.  I managed to pop one of the buttons off of my beloved Bonafe button boots (short version: I'm an idiot).  Sent 'em back to Skoak who sent 'em to Bonafe who sent 'em back to Skoak who sent 'em back to me: just over 4 weeks total.  Fixed as a warranty repair even though it was nobody's fault but mine.  Props to Bonafe as well for a quick turnaround at their end.  I'm a happy customer.

Thanks for the Skoaktiebolaget team, they just make my dreams come true again...and again!

I dig the new additions. The navy suede brogue is sweet and it's nice to see the underutilized Robert last in play. The Bonafe split toes are money.
post #22752 of 24880
There seems to be quite a variation in the color of the Bolet calf.
Ranging from a very light brown on the Bolet adelaide with medallion to a more or less mid brown on the "split toe".
Still very nice though.

For the life of me I cannot find the answer anywhere as to the difference between English Grain and Highland Grain.  Could someone enlighten me?  Are these both different than Scotch Grain and Hatch Grain?  So many grains!  They're all good for you but I have no idea what they are!
