    We should try to get the international shipping / custom / duty fees information into a single post. I've ordered from Tassels Hong Kong with no fee besides the standard shipping fee (I believe the shipping was handled by USPS on the US end).

    I was charged about $50 shipping for these from Northern Ireland to US. I ordered them on a Wednesday and they arrived on Friday!!

    I suspect UPS f'd up.
    Try and get an invoice from UPS detailing how much of that are their fees versus the customs/duty. You should be able to somehow get that customs/duty back.

    Took my cigar LWBs on a maiden journey for a date (sorry guys, didn't have time to snap pics, will do later). My better half said something along the lines of "..nice shoes..". I thought, "for the buck, they better goddamn be nice!"
    Well, at least that was the first time she commented on my shoes [​IMG]

    About to pull the trigger on some NSTs when I find a deal of any sort. Should I do #8 or Ravello? And boot or something else?

    Finding a pair in ravello is unlikely. Finding a deal on them is basically impossible right now.

    You can try TSM for some Ravello NST boots, I think they still have some sizes in stock. But like others have said, you'll have to pay full price if you are lucky enough to find your size.

    Unfortunately, I am not.




    Thanks. Looked on the seconds list the past few months and no luck. Leffot is near my apartment so will likely just buy there since it appears no deals are available elsewhere.

    Very possible you won't find a ravello nst boot, and perhaps not a ravello nst shoe. Neither one will be on sale.

    Very possible you won't find a color 8 nst boot, but you should be able to find a color 8 nst shoe. Neither one will be on sale.

    If anyone is interested in acquiring lightly used Alden shoe trees (Medium) or lightly used BB shoe trees (Medium), PM me. The BB shoe trees are basically the same as the Alden shoe trees.

    So I am looking for a nice boot for the season. Need the following: WaterLock Soles, Storm Welt, Double Leather Soles. Not sure of the preference of speed hooks or not, mostly worn casual denim, chino. I just don't see this make up anywhere.

    Does Brooks Brothers ever discount the unlined LHS, if so when is the sale?
