    Sending you a PM. That's odd. Maybe they won't do this for a single MTO, only a run of 12. But that doesn't make much sense.

    Mine was charged as well, $945.72 (~£619.80?).

    Relatedly, did C&J ever confirm if we were going to get the flat welt or storm welt on the boots?

    Aren't the differing amounts due to different cc foreign transaction fees?

    I don't know what I got charged in gbp as it hasn't hit my account yet. The $929 was what was shown on the notification via phone app. I logged on and no pending charge yet.

    The exchange rate should have worked slightly in our favor. Unless your CC is playing tricks with EX rate.. I have no fees on mine
    I've reached out to Lauren, let's see what she says.It really all depends on what the final C&J charge was, anything else is up to our CC

    In my experience with purchases I've made in Euros, I get the published bank rate and no transaction fees. Not sure why I've gotten charged ~$40 more than the bank rate GBP->USD (my credit card website only shows charges in US Dollars).

    Mine was $1,019.90, charge went through today. Although I also got shoe trees with mine. That might account for the difference between some of the charges.

    Is the Harlech the same model as the Cordovan boot for Peel & Co?

    I believe it is, but it MAY be on a different last. Anyone know?

    I think that's right. Not sure if this part about the lasts is right but standard Harlech may be on 325 NOT SURE whereas Peal & Co. is on 240?
