It's now at 1.495 according to xe.com...

Am I the only one who's planning a quick shopping trip to London in the next few weeks?


I realize this may be more appropriate in the CE forum, but I'm really only interested in this news to the extent it effects my shoe buying power.

Doesn't help those of us travelling west across the pond in the near future.

Hmmm, I ordered an alpha M65 from the states when it was $2 to the pound, I'm tempted to cancel the order and make my first £25 in currency speculation....

It was great being able to buy cheap clothes from the states when it lasted. Hopefully you guys will now return the favour and help your cousins' economy out by buying plenty of shoes. This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity, I'd advise stocking up...

Benchgrade C&Js are now $324 with free shipping from Pediwear folks. Get 'em while they're hot folks.

The yen, too, is unbelievable. IIRC, this summer it was nearly 170 or so yen to the Euro... now it's 119? And it was up over 200 yen to the pound a while back, now it's like 142? Nantucket Red, Alter, dtmt, and our other expat friends are laughing all the way to the bank...

Offer to mule crap across the pond and charge a small commission. You'll make a killing.

Are you coming to the states for the late RJman's wedding?

The dollar may get even stronger against the pound and those shoes may get cheaper yet, according to some "experts".
