MARGARET HOWELL Fall/Winter 2013 - Page 24

post #346 of 351
I like those a lot and I'm sure they would work well with MH pieces.

Not sure if my eyes are fooling me but the shape looks more refined compared to DMs. I do wonder if that sole will be just as slippery though.

Thoughts on these Solovairs to complement MH stuff? A bit more expensive than DM but I dislike contrast stitching.


They look good - nicer leather than the Asian made DM's and not as pricey as the UK made ones.

Yes the Dollar is very strong at the moment which is good for US based Customer buying from Europe but bad for us buying from US.

Sure lot's of places will mark as gift/low value but did you read Pepper's Customs Policly?

CUSTOMS

Customs and import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary from country to country.

We do not under any circumstances undervalue any of our orders.


The only upside is they do deduct their Norwegian VAT as standard on anything they export, but that is shown in the price when you view the site.

Regarding the Solovairs: You are aware that MHL did a collaboration with Solovair this season:

Was wondering what the idea behind the saddleneck neck opening is. It's too wide to wear a turtleneck underneath, but I see the MH site styling them with both a shirt and a turtleneck. 

 

Got the MHL derby boots, paid more mostly because the MHLs display the welt stitching unlike the Solovairs, and because I could ask them to mark down. The leather is apparently better but it's still corrected grain, not that it matters too much. I looked hard for combat boots or boots with a similar shape and there were none at a reasonable price.

 

The manager for the MH store sends the most comprehensive replies and is the most helpful of any SA I've e-mailed. He says they will deliver to the US soon, hopefully in the spring.

If someone from here picked this up and it doesn't work out for them, let me know - would love to give it a shot.  It got discounted pretty far (farther) iirc not sure when it sold, definitely in the past couple days.

it got sold a couple of days ago as I was also thinking about picking it up but wasn't totally convinced it suited me. the discount was pretty good but with import duties it would of bumped up a bit higher than I wanted to pay. It's quite a nice coat, as you'd expect from MH, but its not particularly substantial, only really suitable for mild weather.
