the belfast bureau prices are INCLUSIVE of 20% vat. So a further 20% would be taken off for outside EU orders.
They seem to set a cookie for your location if you've purchased from them before so they knew to show prices without VAT.
Anyway, the text "Price Ex 20% VAT" or "Price Inc 20% VAT" is pretty explicit as to what's being shown.
I think whoever was working may have had one too many...what do you guys think?
Stitching seems a bit off
A bit heavy handed
I'm not sure what you are referring to? The stitching is too close to the edge of the welt? The edge dressing is blotchy? Hardly noticeable, especially while wearing. Pretty good considering the types of flaws that others experience with new pairs.
Remember, they are hand-made in a union factory. A little bit of inconsistency is to be expected.
(not saying that I'm anti-union, but it is hard to deny that union workers get away with a little bit more given their collective bargaining power.)
No, they are from Epaulet and on the Leydon last. I purchased them a few years ago. These are the most comfortable Alden shoes I own.
Every time you post these it kills me that Leather Soul's pre-order from January 2012 still isn't ready yet. I was really hoping to have them by now to wear this summer. Epaulet's version looks great though, Leydon is an awesome last for this makeup. Edited by Beatlegeuse - 6/21/13 at 8:38am
