To the best of my knowledge, Outside of the EU we get charged import duty and a release fee for anything between £12 and £120. Additional customs charges for anything over £120. In my experience though, some things get through and some get charged
You could buy online from an English retailer. The you will cut down on postage/customs/vat.   I like Bates (though a bit pricey) http://www.bates-hats.co.uk/. I bought this tweed one which i really like http://www.bates-hats.com/store/caps/gatsby/gatsby-tweed/prod_187.html (they also do gloves)   Christy's are also worth checking out http://www.christys-hats.com/8-piece-moleskin-baker-boy-cap   Make sure you know his hat size
I like Cordone. The website is not great, but you can email Luigi and he will email over the materials he is currently working with (most of the ones he sent me were Thomas Mason fabrics). You have the freedom of choosing collar/cuff/fit. You can send measurements over too if you wish. Nice people to deal with. Comes within your budget. I love the cotton on my shirt.  Made in Italy by Luigi Cordone, by hand. cordone1956@gmail.com   http://www.cordone1956.it/en/
