    Haven't figured out how to upload pics on the forum with an iPhone yet. The pics on the Bespoke-England site are probably better than what I can manage. From my understanding BE only ordered one of each size this order and I got the 8.5. Great service and attention from those guys.

    The new prices on MTOs are in on Bespoke England which has opened up a nice arbitrage opportunity:

    Pardon my curiosity but what did you get hit with in terms of customs/duties and brokerage fees? I believe Bespoke England uses Royal Mail which then passes it on to Canada Post once the package enters Canada..

    Shoes were £548 shipped. They didn't even check the box, no duties or taxes. Last month I got nailed for $208 on a pair of Lobbs. Guess it's a crapshoot with every parcel.

    Claes- Thanks for letting me know. Sorry for this price confusion. I'm currently updating the MTO pages which is nearly done now including some alligators now available. Lizard and stingray will be on there soon. So many choices now!

    Also, 6 of the latest styles now available including these Monk Straps: Grosvenor, Mayfair, Regency
