    Placed an order for some shoes but package stuck with FedEx, have you guys been hit with customs duties on your purchases? I don't like receiving merchandise through FedEx. :fu:

    FedEx called me in advance of my package going through customs to have me fill out a form. They were pretty helpful and made sure the overnight shipping wasn't delayed by customs, and I didn't get charged any additional duties

    You'll probably get a bill within 30 days, they would not have asked you to fill out the forms otherwise.

    I should have added that the photo is courtesy of Leffot. I tried them on, and loved them, but they are a bit out of my current price range.

    Yes, these are superb shoes and yes we can use this design on a AS Exclusive spec shoe - we want to find out what other styles you would want, and in what leathers and colours. We can run this as an mto over on the thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/300953/a-fine-pair-of-shoes-x-alfred-sargent-mto-thread if you want or we can get a really good idea then put a stock line order in with AS - up to you.

    I don't remember exactly, but I think they were approx $1100 or $1200 if MTO on a different last/leather color.

    Very interested but cash poor at the moment. Personal preference would be in a dark brown color like Oak, but would be willing to go with the crowd if someone else started a MTO and it was not something I already had covered.

    From what I recall Leffot had a lot at that price range- AS Handgrade, G&G, EG, perhaps one or two more. They had Alden as well, much lower down the line, focusing mostly on boots if I recall, but not much if anything in the middle where C&J and AS Benchgrade seem to occupy the space here on SF.
