Am thinking it was more the Duck Wraps than the double monks CW....!!!!  Still the Chairman a truly great CBR institution.

Pics would be good, although after seeing the ridiculous shipping cost of $38 I might have to let the wallet go for now.

The real question is, how much is it worth to you? If you'd actually pay $128 for a wallet like this then suck it up and buy it. If not, forget it. Forget about the shipping cost in relation to the wallet, etc.

 

What would you get for $128 elsewhere?

+1.

When shopping overseas, it really only makes sense to look at the total price, not the nett price of the goods plus shipping. Then, the questions becomes, can I get a similar wallet here in Oz and, if so, how much will it cost?

If, for example, such a wallet would cost you $200, and the overseas wallet costs $128, then clearly the overseas wallet is a better deal, regardless of the shipping costs.

It's also worth noting that postage costs have risen markedly over the past few years and that it's not particularly reasonable to expect small businesses, like the above wallet-maker, to swallow shipping costs just because you only want to pay $20 instead of $28 in shipping.

Just sent it to shipito, $15-20 I'd say.

wow that has blown my mind - i dont think the GF will appreciate me buying a new wallet when she only got me one.

on my hit list - thanks smile.gif

on the topic of shipping - GoRuck (the bag company) are charging $70US for shipping of bags. it was hard enough to connivence me to pay $250 for a packback let alone 70 for ship.

Jason

Sort this man (Gerry) out with a sponsorship deal.

In terms of cashmere ties something like these are what I would love. I imagine you are doing something similar to the first one, the second I imagine is a bit too unusual (but could maybe be a special order?).

And what about something like this for the next Australian Members tie?


Understand that these are complete my own personal taste but just putting it out there. I wonder what others think (I know Gerry is keen on the purple tie too).

When are you expecting the cashmere ties? No rush, just be nice to know...
