This story reminds me of a point Vox once made about how there's the "Ivy" clothes tradition of restraint and subtlety, and the "haberdashery" tradition of bold colors and accessories, with the schools accusing one another of uptightness and tackiness respectively.

Thanks. What kind of buttons are available for these? Thinking brown or grey buttons would look nice with a linen kurta.

FWIW, based on the few purchases I've made from Farfetch and comparing prices for the same items at other EU boutiques, the prepaid duty surcharge appears to be insignificant to nonexistent.2. How does CBP verify that the...
