The UPS rep I dealt with seemed to indicate that if they get involved with clearing your package through Customs, the fees apply. Cool that you only owed import duties. As there are many, many categories of import, do you know...

I have never heard of their financial incentive via a processing fee. I don't know about the "dinged by U.S. Customs" part, but UPS definitely has a financial interest in processing import duties - they get to charge a minimum of $25 brokerage fee to the receiving party for doing so. Also, there...
Definitely agree with what others are saying here - for very high quality cottons you can expect that even his cost may be $20 to $40 per meter (or more!), with somewhere around two meters being needed for an average shirt? I've been looking around lately at some fabrics and Sea Island, for example, can be had for about $24/m...but then those other factors such as weave come into play and turn fabric selection into a maze of options.

mccvi, thanks for your perspective - I totally didn't see it coming across that way but now that I re-read my posts I see that they could appear as other than intended! Appreciate the heads-up and will definitely keep that in mind in the future. thanks, Sean Paul
I don't think the Edit feature will let me replace my original button pictures in the first post so here they are - these do a better job of showing off their brilliance! It is very tricky to capture the light at the correct angles to show it off but I hope this helps. Enjoy, Sean Paul

I'm a new member to the Style Forum, having just joined in late 2009 after searching the web for a place to buy thick MOP buttons for some shirts I was having made. I have been lurking since then, learning quite a bit on here and appreciating the laughs some members provide. I'm looking forward to becoming more involved with the Style Forum community. On to the good stuff. I have found a line on beautiful, thick Mother of Pearl buttons from an excellent supplier. ...
After unsuccessfully trying for a month to get some MOP buttons from Naturlaut II, I had to turn to other sources in order to get the buttons I needed for shirts I was having made. As a result, I now have a line to a fantastic supplier and already have in my possession a substantial order of beautiful, thick MOP buttons. Due to shipping costs, etc. it made sense to order in bulk. Therefore I have amazing MOP buttons available to the members of this board. I will create...

Meanwhile, to keep on this thread, I have still not received any buttons and it has been 5 weeks since payment. I have been forced to put in a Paypal dispute and can...
