Does anyone have any suggestions where to find a pair of burgundy or dark brown longwings, or black PTBs locally? You know...the kind with a nice thick sole and substantial welt. Hoping to find pairs that are not in the Alden-price range (meaning not that expensive). Thanks.
Are you willing to buy used? If you know your size for different brands, and their lasts - you can get lucky on eBay or even thrift stores.

For LWBs, I like American or Canadian made Florsheim. Hanover is also a great brand. Vcleat.com has a list of the well made US footwear companies.

For Canadian brands, I look for Dacks, Hartt, John McHale... Any of the pairs made in Canada are extremely well made and are durable.

If you have not visited the pop up shop at 83 Bloor west... you are missing out on major COPING action on Kiton pants 150$, Finamore, Mattabisch shirts 100 bucks

Isn’t Cavour Norwegian? Norway is not in the EU so CETA would not apply.

I think its based on where the product is made, not where the product ships from. if you buy a italian blazer from cavour I think CETA should apply
I have paid duties for shoes manufactured in Northampton England ( Crockett & Jones) that we’re shipped from New York. DHL is always subject to duties.

CETA is based on where the good was manufactured. It said so on the Government of Canada website.

As for DHL, you can ask for a refund on the duties. I did it many times. Sometime they will ask for proof of country of origin on the commercial invoice, especially when the shipper wasn't diligent with the paper work. But I always get my money back.

Does anyone know if Solovair shoes can be bought in the city? Also, has anyone had any experience with the brand and can speak to their quality?

I was actually there a couple weeks ago and snapped a few photos. Found the shoes to be a bit trendy for my taste, didn’t have time to look at the clothes though.

I visited the pop up shop on the weekend. So much inventory...so little time. I may need to go back when I can properly browse the selection. The neckties mostly seemed to be Hermes style patterns and the shoes mostly around size 8. I can't remember the brands of shoes, but I wasn't familiar with them.

I went there couple times, every single time I would be more inclined to stay and look around if I was not pressured by the sale people there. A lady literally followed me everywhere telling me I should get this, I should get that, or how expensive the original prices were, blah blah blah. Hated their sale tactics.
