I hear you, I notice even the bagging of groceries was also slower in the south :) I remember a moment of clarity when I realized I was going at a different pace when I was watching a lady slowly bag my grocery like she got all the time in the world.
oh, yeah. I have almost lost it so many times when I am in a rush, and the person checking me out at the grocery store is just standing there talking, holding the item in her hand, but not scanning it.

Shipping is still quite bad here in North America, and probably UK as well, based on my personal experience.

And by saying Covid impacts delivery timing, it's not just the shipping itself, could have some delays on warehouse/ company themselves due to layoff or w/e.

I also don't think the response from TLB is very polite, I didn't comment on that.
USPS has been getting worse where I am. Private ones like UPS are fine. I had very positive results with shipping in the UK through Royal Mail, but those were only private shipping. IDK about business times, I've actually not done too much work with UK companies.

The shipping speed imo needs to be worked on. I emailed and asked how long it would take something to shipped, they answered 3 with DHL express. So I got DHL express, and after 3 working days, they didn't ship so I emailed them. I needed this within 7 business days, so I figured when I ordered they could ship it within 48hrs if it's DHL express. It turns out, they don't.

When asked why this was and it seemed unacceptable to me that it takes longer for them to give the package to the shipping company than it takes for the shipping company to ship it halfway across the world. TLB point out to me in their Shipping Terms Page which does say it could take something 3-10 days to be shipped out. And replied

I have to ask you to don't say this is not acceptable because in our shipping terms you can see that our deliveries can be from 3 to 10 working days and with your order, we were 4-5 working days.

I suppose yes, it does say it on that page but I asked specifically and was told 3 business days for express and not that it takes 3-10 days for them to hand the package over.

I run an e-commerce business as well, and when people order express, I have it out the same day if not 24hrs. It seemed to me like something that is part of getting express shipping, at least 48hr seems fair. So I can't blame them entirely, but I do think this area needs improvement. And tbf, it worked out eventually as they shipped it to my Airbnb in another country. Although I was hoping to have the belts since I currently need it with and just bought another cheap belt to get me through until I get the package.
That's sad. I wish the correspondence was better. Sorry for you mate.\

I just ordered some items from a clothing company in Sweden for shipping to NYC. I placed my order on Monday and received delivery today. Oh, and shipping was free.

Received my special adelaide in burgundy museum with JR soles little over a month ago, haven't had the time to bring them on their maiden voyage due to WFH.

All in all, super pleased with TLB and Toni's service! Biggest regret is forgetting to checkout the lasted shoe trees as well :(

Were in the studio shooting a bunch of shoes the other day, including some Artista models, and when looking through the images it hits me how incredible it is that shoes looking like this only cost €425!

A few examples:
