Been buying from John & Karam since the eighties. Introduced a Nova Scotian friend to Haddad's back then and he still talks about what he bought. Last time I was there I got new Blundstones & a couple of pairs of levis. I'm just about to order another 2 pairs to be sent to us here on Waiheke Island. Too far down to Otorohanga so we'll have to make do with mail. They are great guys and theirs is the best rural/working gear shop we've come across in NZ.
