    Kudos to TS for managing to organize this museum calf order. From the pics, the leather certainly looks nice.

    Hatchgrain would def. be a second hot favourite.

    I don't know if every UPS store does this, but I know of two near the Niagara bridges that receive shipments for $5 a pop (+$1 for every day they have to hold it). You have to call them to create a file and then you're good to go. They give you a "street address" so that it doesn't look sketchy to prospective sellers/shippers, and your goods go straight from the courier to a secure store, so it's actually better than getting dumped on someone's front porch. They give you a call when your stuff arrives and the rest is up to you.

    Just placed an order for the Dark Brown Captoes and Black Wholecuts (Classic Line). Let's see how long this takes...also picked up 2 of their belts.

    After seeing that leather, I hate myself so much for having to get out of the group buy. I'm with fox81, I could use (but surely not afford) furniture in that stuff.

    Good to hear that this is a somewhat standard practice. The site I linked seems to have a reputable history but is by no means a large company like UPS (as far as I can tell). Service fees are much smaller compared to the duties Canadian posters have been reporting, so as long as there's not much complication in bring the shoes over the border, this might just be a way to save some money and an excuse to go on a roadtrip to Niagara/Buffalo.

    Granted, you still might have to risk American duties.. but the odds are much better as our sampling has suggested.

    Here is a quick picture my father took of my double-monks. I won't have them in my hand until next Thursday, but, they look fantastic. Super excited!! Sorry for the lighting.

    I don't know why they don't add this to their standard catalog. Unless Namor is demanding royalties for his design....

    Those look beautiful! I hope to have a pair just like them someday. I'm at 45 days and counting right now.
