Unless someone already knows the prices of the incoming Saint Crispins and John Lobb, we can only comment on the pricing of Carmina and EG. EG which is in line with others, fair enough, and Carmina which others have mentioned are still priced above Skoak after getting hit with duties and taxes.
Don't get me wrong, I am all for and support local stores. Though having more offerings in the middle range and pricing the likes of Carmina more competitively would help them reach a larger audience, let alone make them the go to shop for Carmina in Canada as opposed to taking chances with Skoak or others.

It was once on par for a short time. I used 1.10 as a conservative exchange, though it has been even more favourable (in favour of Leatherfoot profits). The CAD has only started to tumble around 2013.
