1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yep, and obviously you are smarter than me. Just wanted to advise others who are buying from SBoy that they should add the additional costs to amount paid so there are no surprises. If you're in Ontario, you know that you will pay duties of up to 20%-30% (check the tariffs chart) + HST 13% + any specific handling fees depending on the shipping company.

    To me it looks like he just posted a helpful reminder that people should consider at-the-door charges when calculating the cost of buying. I don't see him calling SB a-holes anywhere, and since couriers routinely charge 3x actual duties now (I've paid 30%+ COD fees on all manner of crap even though the Canada Customs duty rate on clothing and accessories is 13%) -- money which goes straight to the corporate profit margin -- I don't think your "Jeez" is at all justified.

    I should've quoted this guy instead, sorry about that. But I'm also not sure what sshum was hoping to achieve by asking them what price they put on the packages.

    I stand corrected. Always forget Quebec is part of Canada.

    When did this become the Canadians bitching about sales tax thread?
    People need to get back to posting single use TBS codes.

    I know there's a whole other thread related to this, but Brooks Brothers put a lot of stuff on sale very recently, and is offering an extra 15% off from tomorrow.

    I asked for a pair of Swims galoshes for Christmas, and they were $100 retail, but by tomorrow morning they should be around $65 or so. You can probably get them a bit lower elsewhere, but they have all the colours and sizes in stock (so you don't have to buy bright orange if you don't want to).

    Asking them isn't illegal. Them actually doing it probably is. Big difference.

    Toronto PSA: Sydneys is clearing out its high end footwear. Got some Guidi horse derbies for about 60% off. Pair of backzips left in 45 for about $700. I believe m.a+ and Officine Creative is also on sale, although more like 30% off.

    It's also apparently the last season they'll be carrying those brands... because people weren't buying them at full price. Too bad but I guess that's the paradox with that stuff.

    To be fair, I don't think anyone should expect the value to be marked down. It's an added bonus.

    It's always nice to see the older members raising the level of discourse here.
