I want to order something from Europe. Cost with shipping and vat deducted is about $370 USD. They only ship UPS to N. America. If I get it shipped to Canada I will pay about $120-$130 customs, for a total of about $500. I could get it shipped to a UPS store in upstate NY and pick it up myself across the border, no big deal, done it many times for items shipped within the US. Question: Does UPS charge the same customs for a package coming into the States as they do in...
When in doubt just assume it will be 30%. As you know, customs can be hit or miss; finding someone who didn't get hit doesn't necessarily mean you won't get hit. Free shipping to Canada? Didn't know. That's great.
Very much liking this jacket from the UK site.
This is great. The shirt, belt, and jeans, PS.... all RRL working wonderfully together. Now I want that belt. You could probably rebrand that shirt "Visvim indigo patched" and sell it for $6000.Last year I had an order cancelled and they even had the nerve of charging me $5 bucks for the cancellation. Never mind their measurements are quite often off.Doubtfull. He doesn't charge that much for rather unexceptional vintage shirts. In fact RRL shop can be quite reasonable...
No, hoit is right. They are vintage pieces.I have the upper right plaid rayon blue one, but I unstitched the pockets and flaps.If they look awful, it's for several reasons.1. Not everything RRL made/makes looks good2. The shirts don't photo very well. The colors are much more subdued and deep in person3. Blame it on the mid-90's aesthetic. They are very bowler/workwear/grunge inspiredNow, personally I love the one I have. I bought it because it is 100% rayon and sometimes...
Yes, I have with ambivalent results. So I'll say it depends.Other than the obvious needing a good tailor, it depends on how much.In my experience, up to 2 inches lopped off the waist will produce negligible visual results. I took in a pair from around 38 to 36 with fantastic results. Anything over 2 inches I wouldn't recommend. Hence taking in my first pair of Rescues years ago from 39-40 ish down to 36 (tag size 36) completely ruined them. The back pockets got too close...
Oh yeah, that ridiculous Pitny Bowles import charges crap. I've had to cut back my ebay purchasing by 70% or so because of increasing numbers of sellers who utilize it. Paying import charges doesn't bother me per se, but I'd rather have Canada customs make the decision. That cap, for example, would sale right through customs, I know it would. If the Canadian border doesn't care, why should they? It's just a money grabber for non-existent charges....

Likewise, I have my two Corso boots, one being worn, and the other stored. Love them... knew they were absolute keepers from the outset. I also handled and flipped Daytonas and Starrs. The Starrs were never my thing, but those Daytonas were some of the coolest and most solid boots I've seen, but could never find a size for myself. Looking back, I would love to buy a pair or two of Daytonas, Triumphs, and Ricards, the caveat being that $800+ retail on the Daytonas was...
Ebay seller tendafritz has been putting up some choice pieces for a little while now. There is three up now I would BIN in a heartbeat, but all her/his pieces are much too small for me.
