Where do you live? I get the impression that duties into the US aren't very high. EU ones are, apparently, brutal.

 

Think I'll stick to ordering smaller lots of ties in future - perhaps that will help. I didn't get customs charged when ordering only one tie.

 

Also hope you get away without them!

I live in Italy ... I'll see in the next days and I'll keep you posted here ...

Did you order by DHL (3 days shipping) or regular post (3 weeks)? David said that DHL almost always end up charging duties unfortunately.

It feels wrong to whinge when asked to pay the legally expected fees for import to the EEC but it's most hard not to!

 

Oh well. Greatly looking forward to picking the ties up anyway.

Its why you have health care, infrastructure and (if you're Belgian), 15 governments!
post #2362 of 5641

I'm not Belgian thankfully, but I pay the many governments here a substantial sum for the privilege of working here :D

 

Can't complain really.

 

But probably will.

The Burgundy Oxford Silk Tie #6 will be on its way in a few days ....

Within hours of placing my order, David emailed me to confirm my specs. I appreciate good customer service, and don't mind paying a bit more to get it.

I have an oxford silk on the way as well and am anxious for its arrival. cheers.gif

 

IMO, David's customer service is second to none and the value proposition of his ties at the list price is ridiculously awesome.  Should one be assessed duties on their Hober purchase, the value proposition of his ties might (emphasis on "might") decrease to really awesome.

In full agreeance! The hefty duty places these ties at a value i'd expect to pay for such ties rather than the price I would normally pay for them.

So many choices...now it occurs to me that you might have meant to just get all of the grenadines, not all of the swatches 😄. I think I might be in trouble, so many beautiful swatches!

Holy shit man, I was just refering to the grenandine swatches...but getting ALL the swatch sets is strong! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

You have some shopping to do!
