post #36796 of 46257

^ Looks to me like they do.

For this for example - http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/stephan-schneider-striped-sweater-item-10363895.aspx?storeid=9182 - price is pretty much equal to Schwittenberg's price w/o VAT. About a $6 markup from Google conversion, but since that includes all duties (and duties on the sweater would be $60 if marked at full value) I'd say it's a pretty good deal.

 

Edit: Sorry, I guess I don't know German as well as I thought I did. Looks like buying direct from Schwittenberg does save you $26, but then you're gambling that you can dodge the duty bill. (I think they use DHL?)

 

(Obviously, the 20% code tips the scale.)

I thought Schwittenberg's price includes VAT as they are in Germany like most European companies do? I thought most places remove VAT after you tell them you are in another country, I think Oki-ni does it and TBS.

When you use that sweater and change your location the prices are:
in US dollars 193.27.
in British pounds 129.79 ~ 195 US dollars
in Euros 144.5 ~ 188 US dollars

Yep, I misread, hence the edit.

The shop I bought it from is in the US. If you're looking at the Siki Im, VAT isn't an issue. I have no idea what their actual policy is for overseas, sorry!

Schwittenberg's prices include VAT. But if you order from non-EU countries, VAT is deducted at the check out. Most European shops do it this way.

Woo, with everyone distracted by all those shiny sales going on, I was able to find the diamond print Andover I've been after on B&S. Thank you, B&S!

The P2P is a little daunting -- only 20" for a Medium. 20.5 is usually fine. Anyone know how these are cut? Should I be worried?

Speaking of worry, I also found this nice works kit to fetishize everything anxiety-related -- aspirin, lint brush, hand sanitizer, bandages, emergency xanax, germ-busting UV travel light, maybe a nice cayenne pepper solution for those surprise cardiac events. Called a tool roll, apparently.

Andovers are the slimmest of EG blazers and I find mine to be pretty slim with high armholes...I have the gray wool so I dunno if different fabrics affect it
post #36803 of 46257
different seasons and fabrics do impact the fit of eg blazers. good cop noob, I had my eyes on that piece but didn't need it at all.
