WTB Carradice Kendal panniers or similar

I am just about to get my repainted, rebuilt, and upgraded Gunnar Sport back from my LBS. I was previously using a Topeak rear rack and pannier/rack trunk combo, but the rack was dented when I was hit by a truck, so I upgraded to a Tubus Vega. Now I need panniers. I'd like to find traditional cotton duck panniers, and the Carradice Kendal looks perfect. Not too big, not flashy, just right for what I'm going to have to carry. Unfortunately, it seems like Carradice hasn't been on the ball and no US dealers seem to have them in stock. Even St. John's Cycles in Britain doesn't. Anybody have any sources? I've tried Wallbike in New Orleans and City Bikes in Portland, OR---and they don't have them. Help!

Carradice is good stuff and worth the wait IMHO.

Probably just have to wait until they get new stock in. Have you talked to Bill at Wallbike? He can usually give you a pretty good idea when his stuff is coming in. I have a couple of items that I am waiting on and he is very good about emailing you when what you are waiting on arrives.

Scroll down to the Shopper Pannier or Bike Bureau...

I would highly recommend Carradice and Peter White Cycles.

I was lucky enough to score a pair of these (Carradura Rear Panniers) for $50.00 at my local LBS clearance sale!!!
