    Agreed. You can really see the difference in volume between the two.

    Do those who are sizing up a half to Grant also find them snugger in the instep/waist of the boot?

    Sweet cap toes. Where did you find them? I like the ever so slight variation in shade between the different pieces. Enjoy often and in great health my friend!

    100% agree. I'm still recovering after paying US$660 with shipping for LS choco Tankers.

    The CAD exchange rate has meant that the cost of Alden's has gone up $100 in the last 2 months. Sure hurts!

    As my fellow Canadian TTG pointed out, exchange rates from US to CAN add another $100 for us.

    I got lucky and didn't get charged additional 13% HST on top of that lol.

    Jeez.... 13%.
    Never did understand customs and duties. I recently had a bottle of whiskey shipped into the US, cost me 40 dollars in customs. Sounds petty but for an 80 dollar bottle its 1/3 the price.

    Yeah the exchange rate, local taxes on the purchase amount, custom & duty along with ridiculous UPS brokerage fees meant I paid about $900 CAD for my whiskey PTB. I thankfully have a local store I got my Indys at for $475 CAD and they also carry the 990 and the 975 for I think $750 and $775. Really makes me consider just buying those classics instead of the Leffot Dover or the antique edge LWB.


    Edit: Just checked and it was $910 CAD from Alden DC plus almost another $100 upon delivery, oh my
