Can't you snag RM Williams domestically at Australia Boot Co.?
I have not visited the Toronto store, but the website does not carry the model I want, (Macquarie) and they are laughably overpriced, almost $600. Plus the Canadian dollar is, or was, better than the Aussie dollar when I ordered them. Plus I could have them customized to my preference of leather, sole, etc.
$425 for Loake 1880? Not too bad of a price.
Needs moar chest hair.
Just today, good sir. Frankly, I can hardly believe it. Of the last three pair of Vass that I've ordered from NMWA, this is the first pair to come through unscathed, so to speak. Cleared customs yesterday morning in Mississauga, in my hands in Winnipeg today.
Thanks, and congrats! Pics!
Nope. My pair of J Fitzpatricks was hit about three weeks ago.
I've ordered a couple of Meermin belts and, given the fairly low price, I'm hoping they arrive with no charges.
Three pairs total, one from steve, two from skoak. All bullets dodged.
Okay well here's my input. I actually had three packages arrive today, all sent via post, 1 from the US, 1 from the UK, 1 from Sweden.
Some cycling stuff from the UK - sailed through!
A watch from the States - sailed through!
G&G Burnhams from Skoak ....... lubeless @$$-f#ckign! CDN$570. I've bought some pretty damned nice shoes for the tax on these things.
oh man, boy am I glad I held off those GG St James, they were in my cart when it occurred to me that they'd get nabbed at customs.
My sympathies Roger...I'm sure you'll forget once they're out of the box!
that's local stc territory when all is said and done :/
Sorry to hear this once again Roger. It's crazy, when I found out I owe $400 for my EG I was in shock. I will defiantly think twice now about ordering EG/GG/StC from Europe.
We are talking about Canada Post, damn it.
Enjoy those GG Chelseas, one of the best I ever seen.
Appreciate the condolences. And yes, comfortably into local St. C. territory.
It's not like I can complain, this is only the second or third pair in total that I have been dinged on. Makes me glad that I don't have a great many future purchases planned, though.
Yeah - it seems like Skoak has been flagged or shoes or something! When is that supposed Free Trade agreement with Europe coming into place?!!?
I wonder if Canada Post has been browsing this thread.
