Ppanther,

 

That is one sweet tie!

 

Starts with conservative grey and even adds some orange.  

 

Lets one explore their inner pastel?!

I just received a customs duty invoice from DHL, 3 wks after delivery? Is this normal if opting for expedited shipping to US rather than regular snail mail? Thanks

I was impressed.  I see another order in my future.

No, but I always limit my orders to two ties.  Not sure if it's correct or not, but I recall hearing that there is no duty on purchases that are under $200.

Thankssf, the same thing happened on my last order too. First time ever on a hober order. It was also 3-4 weeks after delivery.

This is normal in my experience. Can't speak for snail mail.

I might have to go that route. I called DHL to schedule a different delivery date and got hit with a $22 bill for three ties. Oh well...

^ guess I never have felt duties were a big enough deal (in the U.S.) to adjust purchasing quantities or shipment methods. I want as many Hobers as I can afford as quickly as possible and paying about 5.5% duties (which is less than sales tax in the county I live in) doesn't seem all that bad.

Agree with PP. I've never been hit with duties on a hober order before that last one, but I placed another order for 5 ties today (cashmere/ wool yahoo!) and chose DHL again. It's a 5% tax or thereabouts. It's a cost of doing business/investment.

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I got mine in the southern US 13 days after shipping notification from David via duty free (as far as I know) snail mail. It is worth it to me to wait a few days and save the $
