    All this banter the last week be it negative, speculative, or otherwise has brought about some very positive movement.

    I'm genuinely excited to see what is in store for LF in the near future.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful support and encouragement. It's truly appreciated and I'm very humbled.
    Please, if either of you plan to stop by some time to say hello, I would truly love to know so I can be there to meet and share a cup of coffee or tea.

    Best regards

    Thank you sir!

    Your support is very much appreciated.

    All the best and I can't wait to organize something so we can all reconnect again at the new store.

    Thanks for the tip, Roger. I'm also sitting on my wallet at the moment so may just make do for another winter. I'll have a peek in NYC but the exchange rate makes things much less tempting south of the border.

    In any case, you've confirmed my thoughts that CXL is the way to go.

    Leatherfoot has always been more than fair in terms of their pricing anyways. Both my Carminas ordered from the webstore themselves ended up being around $700 a pair after I was absolutely destroyed by duties. I've been hit too many times by hidden duties and taxes, I find myself rather tired by it, and not really willing to risk it anymore. I'd rather go local and get a pair of Vass from Jokb or buy Carmina from LF where there are no surprises in pricing anyways. Everytime I've popped in staff have been friendly, and there is always something beautiful to gawp at anyways.

    My Ring Jacket from LF was a great deal. Haven't bought Carmina in a while but would certainly consider buying from LF.

    It would be nice if LF could have a Carmina trunk show like those guys in NYC are having! @sirLF would that be an option?

    The big question, will the tariffs and duties on shoes from the UK and EU drop once the free trade deal is phased in?
