    I'm looking for a pair of white leather Jack Purcells, just wondering if anybody knew a place locally in Vancouver, or online that sells them and will ship to Canada?

    Thanks

    There's a place in gastown that sells them for $110. I think it was Livestock at 239 Abbott Street.

    Damn, $110 is overpriced. I found this one from a member who had experience with them: http://www.instepdrmartens.com/brows...2be/items.html for $60 USD, but they don't have my size (8.5 in Chucks, from what I read they fit almost the same as that? Or a tad small, so mabye 9).

    Yeah, $110 is way too much. Nice find on the site. I'm not sure how they fit, since I haven't tried them on. Nevertheless, I imagine they would fit similar to all Converses.

    Yikes, $35 for shipping (if I read that site correctly)? Plus, they ship with UPS (brokerage fees), and don't forget taxes and duties on top of the $60. Oh the joys of being the little cousin of the north...

    They ship USPS Global ($12) outside the US, so its not too bad. That would have been my last resort, but unfortunately I didn't realize they did not have my size.

    I was the guy. I don't think there's anywhere in Canada that sells Purcells. The shipping was pretty cheap from this place. Got shafted a few bucks by UPS for duties, but still pretty far from $35 for shipping.

    Alot of places here in Toronto sell Purcells; this season Browns/Holts and Aldo is carrying them in certain locations. As well as alot of the smaller shops on Queen street.

    On fit: I wear an 11 (eur 44) usually. The Varvatos Purcell slips on my feet right now are an 11 (eur 45), but in Chucks I buy a 10 (eur 43). I don't know if that helps or makes it worse. [​IMG]
