    ...and good grief, Glengarry Hats is listed as 20% off right now too. $45 USD and no borders to cross in delivery.

    This is get harder to resist.

    Bill,

    Why not cancel the order with B&S and order directly from Mackie? I've had no problems dealing directly with them, and even had them create a custom balmoral for me. Unless something's changed, you should just cut out the middleman...

    [Edit: I just checked through my email, and it seems that Chris Taylor-Balls was my middleman. So, not sure if you can deal directly with Mackie...]

    David, I looked at that and couldn't find ordering contacts. Right now, I'm leaning towards the Glengarryhats at half the price (!). I E-mailed James at B & S and told him I'd changed my mind and asked for the refund. I'll make a decision after I see that they do indeed put the money back onto my card.

    No rush; I was hoping to have something special, but it's turned into something rather sorry.

    I'll avoid B & S in the future. Unfortunately, they have the Canadian market tied up on some things, such as Locharron.

    So, what's the opinion of the Rabble about black vs. navy? I know that it's hard to tell the difference, but . . . .

    If you would like, I would be happy to inquire with Mackie to see how to go about a direct purchase for you.

    It's an incredibly generous offer. Thanks! Unfortunately it would also mean dealing with import, shipping, duties, exchange rates, etc. etc. I'm a wee bit gun-shy right now, but if I decide that's my preference, I'll let you know.

    It's always heartwarming to know that we have the support of this wee online community.

    Merry Christmas!

    I ordered a Navy Balmoral from JHiggins a few months ago from their web site. It was not in stock and had to be ordered from Mackie. It arrived in a reasonable time and at no additional cost. This was in the US so I donít know about any additional duties you might encounter. Great product and good price.

    Hm. Might want to have a look at Higgins.

    Thanks!

    Edited: No navy diced shown. Reasonable prices though (USD)

    Shoot John an email. He'll order whatever you want; for some reason he lists color combinations as people ask for them. Be very specific about your color choices, he's a bit of an odd duck about color names and such. For instance, what he calls "lovat blue" on his webpage is actually Mackie's "saxe blue". I believe that's the only oddity, but it's worth double checking.
