1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    This would be helpful - I just got dinged for a Kent Wang suit, which I've never had before. And it looks like I'm definitely going to be hit with a skoak package...

    BNN missed this angle when we covered the rate cut yesterday - "the lower loonie and guys who spend too much money importing clothing"

    "So what does this mean for the average Canadian?"

    "Well Paul, I'm just going to ignore that question and tell you that I now have pretty much zero chance of breaking in a new pair of loafers before the summer is over. I hope Mr. Poloz is happy"

    Speaking of which. I'm ordering something tomorrow. Just trying to decide which one. Burgundy Cap or Snuff Derby.

    Not the best time, but I see an increase on the horizon. Also EUR likely moving up (can it get any worse?)

    That's not what I wanted to read today! I've been on a losing streak all summer (Exquisite Trimmings x2, Pediwear, Epaulet, NMWA, eBay), with 2 KW orders in progress. Even a $12 battery for my camera was "sent for further processing".

    Yeah, my Skoak package got dinged - nice 20% charge...

    Wish Leatherfoot could organize GMTOs!

    Jesus H that's horrible. Those duties are killer!

    I would 1000% be up for @Viral muling some stuff back from the US instead.

    Hey guys,

    The Brooks Brothers Black Fleece double monks in brown are 60% off at the Toronto location.

    So $765-60% = good price for C&J

    I'm convinced the CBSA has my name down on a list somewhere :)

    Even the canada post lady was shocked by the duties bill!
