Do you have any other currency? Hong Kong Dollars has a fixed forex rate with US greenbacks, just throwing it out there.

$870 CDN for the Coniston boot though...


Thanks for posting and informing the SF friends.

Prices had to be approved by C&J to keep their product value consistent. So we are not more expensive than their stores at all, as a matter of fact we are about $20 to $30 cheaper.

As mentioned previously I will be inviting everyone one soon for the first preview of our new store, soon as construction is done before we open to the public. We will keep receiving new stocks every week in preparation for the new store.

We've also received our first batch of matsuda eyewear today.

Feel free to drop by anytime and say hello

^^^ I popped on earlier today. The new C&J selection is very impressive.

So I just found out today that I'm going to Toronto next week for work. First time in the area. I'll be working and staying very close to the airport but I'm hopeful I'll have the mornings off to explore. (When I'm in the field, my workday starts in the evening and ends early morning.) Recommendations for restaurants? Will have car.

Just spoke to my hot branch manager TD girl smile.gif

Preferred client rate is 1.3710. Damn.

 

Have you checked Calforex?  They have pretty good rates. 

 

PS - If you don't already have a credit card with no currency exchange fees, Amazon.ca VISA is the one.  I just got one, thanks to this forum!

There were a bunch of restaurant recommendations a few pages back (late October).  That would be a good place to start.  If you have any specific food cravings, let us know.  Toronto has some great restaurants, and with the weak CAD, you will be eating like a king!

C&J is my favourite shoemaker, so I'm glad LF finally got them in.  Good to see, they're starting with C&J casual offerings.  I'm a casual blucher and boot king of guy and in my opinion, no one does it better.

PSA - Brooks Brothers RBC Plaza is having a 50% off Black Fleece sale on Friday. They are clearing out stock from other locations too. As you probably know, they are discontinuing the BF line. They had the C&J black grain medallion cap toe boots (9.5 was the smallest size) for around $650.

Good to know.

 

I'm not particularly familiar with the BB sub-brands - are you saying these C&J boots are part of the Black Fleece line and therefore subject to Friday's sale?  And does Black Fleece cover a range of different items?

C&J Coniston Scotch grain for 500$ taxes in... Pretty sweet deal

Correct. The BF footwear are made by C&J.

The line is designed by Thom Browne, known for his very tailored look. Not for everyone, but the quality is very good. In particular, I am eyeing the OCBD's.

Thread Starter 

Has anyone found that the black fleece fabrics are crap? I bought my wife an overcoat and the fabric is pilling after a month of wear. 

 

The cut is great, though. She won't return it because the cut is so good.
