Ok, so C&J from the UK uses DHL for shipping internationally. What kind of duties can i expect from DHL if I order from them?


EDIT: Never mind, it's ParcelForce, not DHL. Thanks everyone.

Just to let you know, when I ordered a Polo shirt from Mr. Porter at 80 GBP, DHL quoted me 25 GBP just for their administration costs + custom + tax of my state .. The shipment was made outside of EU countries in this case so I have refused to accept the package and told DHL to return it to MrPorter, after which I informed Mr Porter tha I would like a refund which they provided.

I've had two pairs of boots shipped directly from C&J on Jermyn St and both times they shipped ParcelForce (UK Mail) which got transferred to USPS here. No customs duty either time.

C&J has been "customer friendly" in their declaration in the past and they used Royal Mail.

From other DHL shipments I've received, they typically charge about $12 brokerage plus the shoes will be about 8.5% for duty.

Yeah DHL are the worst (alongside FedEx) in my experience. I would call C&J and see if they can mail via Parcelforce, as with them you're unlikely to have any fees at all.

+1 on the above - I've ordered from Jermyn St. several times and they've always used ParcelForce (with no duties).

My apologies, i miss remembered the email, they mentioned shipping with Parcel Force. It did not know it was a service from Royal Mail in the UK, so i'm a little more comfortable with ordering now. Thanks everyone...

Just received these today.

Pembrokes:

That's a good looking longwing, the retailer pics do not do it justice.

How do you like the country grain leather? Just as supple as the C&J calf leather?
post #7363 of 7809
Actually surprisingly supple. I had a pair of C&J buffalo leather longwings (the Pembrokes are actually wingtips), and while the leather on those had a similar appearance, they were more akin to wearing clogs. Really more of a 'city country shoe' if you know what I mean?

^ Funnily enough, I was just getting ready to list these on eBay: the Argyll longwing model that C&J made for Fife back in the day. Never seen another pair of these, although a leather-soled single shoe sample of this is held at the Birmingham C&J shop.

 

On either the 240 or 248 last, so one of the earlier ones. Leather is the same as the Islay, with a slightly flatter last and with an EE width:
