This might be helpful

http://www.dutycalculator.com/

Note, you can only use the site once, so choose your descriptions carefully. After you've tried it, you need to pay some fee in order to calculate a new import.

FWIW, I find that customs and duties can be a really variable thing, and there's often little rhyme or reason to it. A lot can depend on whether the people at the border decide to tax you on your order. Sometimes things just slide through, even if they're supposed to be taxed. Also, the tax code can be very, very complicated. A lot can depend on not only where the item was manufactured, but also where the components are from. In bespoke tailoring, for example, I know just 1% of cashmere can throw you into a whole new tax bracket, jumping the percentage points up from something like 10 to 40 (something like that).

I would use that calculator as a way to figure out what's the highest you could pay, but not actually what you might pay.

I was told that if you email Spence, you can ask them to ship using EMS rather than their default UPS/DHL. This should remove some surprise customs fees that may pop up. But since your item is 1k, you'll probably still get charged, but that duty calculator will be more accurate. Also them not deducting VAT is pretty annoying, but nothing you can do about it.

I dunno but looking around there are several cuts of it. Traditional, slim and normal length and long length. I think I had the long slim cut one. Don't know where it fucking went either... might have been stolen from my car when it got broken into never was exactly sure what was in my trunk. Ohwell next time I'm getting the shorter version the long version didn't really make sense given my height.. There are a few variations too. the history preservation versions have red lining and some have that logo on the arm. Mine was black lining, no logo. Probably want to repeat that.

History preservation has:

Buzz Rickson’s
Black MA-1
Intermediate
Flying Jacket
Original Full Cut
William Gibson
Collection

and


Black MA-1
Intermediate
Flying Jacket
Modified Tailored Cut
William Gibson Collection

Googled around and found this, they offer tax refunds for online purchases, so you should essentially be able to send the needed info and then get your money refunded.

It would be illegal to collect VAT and not pass it on to the Inland Revenue. But I don't know the situation if the VAT isn't actually due. I've got an idea they just pocket it.

I stopped using Goodhood because they refused to stop charging unnecessary VAT.

how long should one wait on a grailed offer before just assuming it's been denied?

It's fairly easy, as on your at form you fill out online, you just tell how much you have shipped out if the eu and get a refund, so it's not that big of a hassle.

So there's two option 1 they are pocketing the profit or 2 they don't know how to fill out a tax form.

Maybe I'm a cynic, but I'm guessing option 1.
