John Elliot,

Looks like you updated your international shipping methods again, but something doesn't seem right.

I'm from Canada, once I fill out my address you add taxes to my total.

But here is where it doesn't make sense. When I choose USPS as a shipping option, you're still charging me taxes. When USPS crosses the border, it gets taken over by the country's local post office who then determines if the package should be charged taxes based on the consumer goods index and also the value of the package.

Unlike a 3rd party courier like UPS/DHL/FedEx who uses a broker, USPS shipping goes directly into customs so there is no way for a retailer to collect taxes ahead of time and pre-pay on my behalf. Only the government can collect taxes in that scenario. Right now you are charging me 13% taxes at checkout, which is the same as the government except that I can be charged those same taxes again when I get my package from Canada Post. That doesn't make any sense, can you see why you're collecting taxes with USPS shipping option?

I completely understand that if you are shipping with UPS/DHL/FedEx that you charge me taxes upfront, as that is a convenience and I won't be charged taxes by the 3rd party broker when the package is shipped to my door. But my understanding is that this can't be done with USPS/Canada Post/Royal Mail/etc.

Generally when a retailer charges taxes at the checkout, they make a disclaimer that no further taxes will be charged at your door and they have been taken care of. Luisavarioma and Mr. Porter for example does this, I don't see any disclaimer that this is the case upon checkout.

Our apologies for this confusion. We are looking into this and will get back to you.

I might be making this up, but I believe a while back JE might have mentioned the introduction of a heavyweight villain. Might that be happening sometime soon? My current Villain looks and fits great but it's certainly not warm and winter hasn't even started yet.

I know, I have my shopping cart on their website full of their tees and sweatshirts.  My only complaint about the black villain is my backpack is fading the color in some areas.  But whatever, that's bound to happen with black terry.

Black Escobar



Got tired of waiting for Midnight Esco, Charcoal Villain Crew ...
post #4703 of 25317

tried on a bunch of stuff today, thoughts

 

ls charcoal uneck was amazing

medium escobars fit like leggings and large was everything i wanted in sweats

didn't get to try a medium villain, liked the length of the large villain and the fit, but might like the slimmer medium more

silk tees much better in person

didn't like how the neckline looked on the white tees

 

 

and if they ever release a villain with an oversized hood i would grab 2
