    Import noob here. I'm assuming I pay FedEx at delivery? Thanks in advance!

    I've experienced either collection at delivery or a separate bill/invoice that comes in the mail a few days later. Not sure why that varies.

    I've only had UPS and USPS collect on delivery.
    Fedex and DHL have always sent an invoice after the fact.

    Ahh, you are correct sir. Thanks for the clarification. Goes to show you that I am buying too much stuff being delivered by too many carriers. [​IMG]

    I've had FedEx collect at the door. But it's been a good long while since I've used them so that info is fairly dated.

    FedEx typically bills me a few weeks later for imported shoes. The Carmina's that arrived a few weeks ago resulted in a $26 customs bill from FedEx. I'm in the U.S.

    Gerry: how does the toe box compare between Rain and Inca? My only complaint with my Inca cap toes is that they are too chiseled and press down on the top of my big toes. I have no such problem with the Forest last.

    Alcudia. It is the same as Simpson but with an almond toe.

    Well I didn't last long as an owner of one Carminas. [​IMG] Snagged the Navy Shell Greeleys from Epaulet on sale. I think I'll be able to pull these off.

    Pics of both to come. These will probably be here before the ones I ordered direct.

    Interesting. I found that the toebox feels slightly wider on my Inca shoes (the oxford captoes and a pair of captoed double monks) compared to the Rain. I'll try and do a comparison with the Forest and see if I feel any difference.

    Betty told me that they don't 80250 inca double monks in Boudreaux in a size 8uk. What are my other options for purchasing these?

    I haven't seen them in Bordeaux but I have seen them in burgundy shell. Epaulet had them at one point.

    It looks like Carmina e-Boutique just restocked the 80250 in tan calf. I don't want to get socked with duties but I might have to grab these while I can.

    I really really wish Epaulet carried 11.5UK sizes on the regular. I know this one has been available as a MTO, but some of the others they do for standard retail have been fantastic. Jealous btw.
