    Great deal on those CC&J boots - even better tomorrow - but alas, not my size.

    If they're not the exact same, they're very close. But black.

    Didn't check out the footwear since I think it was in a different section to the BF stuff, sorry (man, I'm so Canadian)

    If you meant me, I found when I tried on the Black Fleece items like suits they were cropped and boxy. Can't speak to anything else though.

    Yeah, thanks! I'm planning to check out the sale for Christmas gifts, and he's a large guy.

    PSA shoeme.ca is having a 25% site-wide sale. Most of their offerings aren't SF approved, but you can kop Wolverine 1000 Miles for $300-$315 CAD pretax with free shipping. Weird how Wolverines aren't on their exclusion list.

    Can anyone report what other boots/shoes they may have available? Looking at size 11.5/12.

    Hey guys, stopped by Woolridge shoes today and spoke to Ivor. He brought in some beautiful Cheaneys and they're priced really well (cheaper than Holt Renfrew).

    As an SFer I've become used to scouring the net for the best prices for shoes, but there's a charm to shopping at an independent shop, and Ivor is a great guy.

    And for the Loakes, he offers recrafting services and actually has Loake branded replacement heals.

    Want to make a small proposal to Toronto based SFers. What do you guys think of doing a meetup at Woolridge and doing a 'purchase bomb'? There's a couple of cool pubs close for afterwards. And frankly, I think it'd be great to support a local independent business owner who's actually passionate about his craft.

    I'm in for a pair of Loake or Cheaneys.

    Anybody in for this?

    it varies depending on the discount code, so sometimes the exclusions will apply to a brand when it wouldn't normally.

    After Christmas last year the Bay at Queen put all remaining1000 Miles at 40% off, so I bought two pairs. I have no idea if it will happen again, but worth watching for

    Too bad I missed it. Thanks - I'll keep an eye out. But I think Wolverine and AE are discontinued at the Bay on Queen, as I didn't find them when I visited the store a while back. They do carry church's now and a few pairs of shoes in the $500s range with subpar quality....leather was worse than Meermin's imho lol

    Speaking of the The Bay and Loake shoes, I was in the The Bay a couple of weeks ago and while walking by the men's shoe section an SA handed me a Loake 1880 brochure and said "new in the store". I didn't see them anywhere, but was in a hurry and not there to browse shoes. Has anyone spotted these Loake's at The Bay, and if so, prices? I've seen the Church's.
