    You really think ED is made in a different factory than mainline? They look pretty darn similar...

    Afraid not, I was last in store the week before the new stock arrived.
    Yes, confirmed it with the store manager in London

    Don't think so, they want to avoid the arb...

    No idea. Usually VISA makes the conversion and bills in USD.

    The international site (i.e. the non-US site) has removed shipping to the US as an option. Moving to Canada is your best bet.

    Still Belvest or another maker altogether?

    I assumed not too.

    See above, U.S.folks, can't order from the non-U.S. site anymore as there is a dedicated U.S. site now.

    My understanding is another maker, but as I said this was from a conversation, not first-hand examination.

    This is a bummer because the prices are lower on the U.K. site, even with the conversion rate and international shipping. Last time I checked, at least.

    Interesting. I would speculate that the Easy Day pieces look the same as mainline because, as I was told at the NYC store, Drake's owns the patterns. So it sounds like they took the patterns to another manufacturer so that they could have a lower priced line--competing with SuSu and others listed earlier essentially.

    Yeah, I just noticed that! I hadn't visited their site in a while.

    And I think they understand that perfectly well, given they have a US store they don't want to under cut themselves. I'm surprised someone like say CJ hasn't cut the mail order from UK to US yet (at least from their own store, though unless they can do that to their retail partners guess it's useless)

    Yeah, I had ordered a few ties and squares in the past because the pricing was more favorable.
