I have been very happy with the belts I just received from:
http://www.equusleather.co.uk/

Apart from a couple of them, they're very reasonable prices particularly when I compare with some 'Made in China' local purchases. Pretty happy buying from the UK due to saving on the 17.5% VAT + GST here... or is it 20% VAT now.. they keep bloody changing it!

Very funny.  Am not familiar with this Dexter character, Wallander was the preferred choice, however, am downloading Dexter series over the weekend, looks fantastic.  Saw snippets of it last night on some doco on American TV.  Thanks for this, made me laugh

Interesting you say that - on delivery I realised there would be no one available to collect the package, so I rang up and arranged to pick it up the same day, only had to wait 10 minutes at the depot for the driver to come back and collected it without any dramas.

 

Interesting comment from Ken the Herring customer service manager - apparently the 10.5 F would be 3-4mm longer, but slightly narrower than the 10.0F. Does this sound correct?

 

Incidentally, anyone want to buy a pair of Church's? Perth in Cocoa Suede & Legate in Black Calf, both 10.0F, worn once each. $220 plus postage

I can confirm a few things about Double Monk. They will open by 4 December and stock the following: 

 

John Lobb, GJ Cleverley, Edward Green and Crockett & Jones, Rubinacci accessories and a full range of Saphir shoe polish.

 

Cannot wait to give these guys a look when I next get to Melbourne.

+1.  Be interesting to see what they charge for the Saphir, given I and many others here get it sent to us at a pretty good price.

I ordered my first lot of Saphir from shoe care in Holland he uses Fedex which is deer if you are just buying a few items but for my first order I had quite alot of gear so was not so bad.

I hope they have done their market research. I wear John Lobb and Edward Green, but I can't bring myself to pay Australian prices for them when they are readily available at cheaper prices elsewhere over the phone or online. Henry Bucks still charge 2,000 for Edward Green. I hope this new store's pricing is slightly more competitive.

On the subject of casual leather belts http://www.handmadeleatherbelts.co.uk/tanning.html by far the best made and value for money option via England. There used to be, years since I have been there, a couple of good leather workers selling belts at Paddington markets.

A quick trip to Henry Bucks for their $10 white linen pocket square in support of Prostate Cancer (very appropriate in Movember spirit).
