    Note the 9% "government" tax on the John Lobb shoes. Suspect it's a way of recouping ebay fees as I haven't heard of this tax before when buying from Canadian sellers.

    It's BS. There is no tax GST or PST on used (preowned items in Canada) only on new and only if you are a business that has a gov't issued GST number and only if sold within Canada.

    Based on his number of feedbacks, he should know better. Cash grab.

    ^That is a nice LT messenger; I had the tote version of it. Sturdy navy canvas with chocolate pebble grain trim. Sturdy construction and a good value... classic styling, but functional, and doesn't draw too much attention to itself.

    I may just have to place a bid... though I really am in NO need for new bags.

    As well, LT has gone out of business, so snap it up as they won't make anymore.

    Lobb bespoke size 15 gunboat loafers in snake skin . . . i don't know if you can take a shoe this big and basically scrap it down to re-use the leather . . . size 15, that is freakin gi-normous, you could probably re-cut a size 9.5 shoe with enough left over for a matching sac a despoo [​IMG]
