For example there is a customs duty within the USA on neckties but it is small as someone mentioned basically the same as sales tax.

My goal is to get our DHL shipping rate lower and lower so that even if there is duty and tax collected it still works out to be best to go with DHL.

 

David, thanks! This is good information.

And for those who were curious about English Plaid #9 (it's not shiny):
 

 

Mr. Six, great ties! And I agree that the english plaid #9 is not shiny (I posted a pic of it in action a few days ago, post #2220).

@ Mr. Six: lovely ties. I have 121 as well. My favorite burgundy tie. As for the carbon black, what does that description mean? Is it a duller black just south of charcoal maybe? Or the opposite; super clean black?

@PP: your pic is so much lighter than David's website, almost orange. Where does the color actually fall IRL?

tdude: IRL the color is much closer to David's website, it is a nice burgundy shade.  My pic is washed out (for reference the suit is navy).  Alas, the variablility in the iPhone photo quality is frustrating and extremely dependent on the light coming in the windows of my office, but it is what it is..censored.gif

Thanks! I saw your photo, it looked great. I just figured that as long as I was taking photos I'd add one more for the curious.

Your photo of #121 helped me decide to pull the trigger. Thanks for posting it! "Carbon Black" is how it's described on David's site. So far, it just looks like a clean black to me, but I'll take a look in some different light. It's pretty matte, which might be part of the source of the "carbon" description.

So that's where the last regimental #3 went eh? Had to change my order, but I actually found another that I'm hoping I will like just as much, if not more. The #3 looks good....

Thanks! And sorry (but only sort of smile.gif). No doubt the alternative will also be nice.

Got one of those emails a few days ago, but standard shipping makes for rough wait times.

Got the email early this morning. DHL shipping. tounge.gif

On another note, I'm getting excited for the new striped grenadines and restocks!

Just received my plum Sangdao Thai rough silk tie (no.9) and think it is , by far, my most versatile casual tie. Goes with my navy, dark blue, brown, gold, and grey odd jackets. Interesting texture, like a grenadine, but snag- resistant. That, and my Hober navy twill are the two most useful ties in my closet.

Can you post pictures of that rough silk?
