Gloverall is nice, but they are not going to fit slim, even if you size down.

Sherman Brothers in PA is having a trunk show for Alden. 15% off, but you can only get it in store.

I am not complaining. I have no intention of purchasing for this retailer. I'd never expect a company to mark down stuff or send it "as a gift" if that's indeed illegal. But I mean advertising that you are going to stop your illegal practices for one day just seems odd, and not something that you should advertise.

They're technically not stopping their practices for one day. It's just that they decided to put out a 12% code on 12/12/12 because of all the qq that they charge VAT on sale items.

I've never asked for a retailer to mark down prices for me, and I'll also never buy from a retailer who doesn't take off VAT if I'm buying from outside the EU.

Hi,

Please stop "edit"

 

To answer to everyone asking the question:


We are two individual owners, Au revoir et merci website is the junction of the two small entities, and in France there is a special type of corporation that is exempted from paying VAT when selling.
But while you can go higher than suggested retail price, you can't go under... then you are free to refund VAT or not.
So to resume this point, In our situation, the VAT deduction that we apply on non-sale item, is a pure gift made to the customer since on each sale we don't pay it, and we must respect the suggested retail price, we do it only to to be more competitive, and actually I think that we are one of the most competitive store across the board.

 

There are also several additionnal reasons, just contact me if you have some additionnal questions.

 

Lou

Au revoir et merci.

Not to deadhorse-a.gif , but you guys need to keep in mind that many EU/UK small businesses simply aren't VAT registered in their respective country. This means that they do not pay VAT on sales, and therefore should not deduct it from sales outside the EU/UK (because it doesn't exist as part of the purchase price). If they become VAT registered, their prices increase by the VAT amount, which is deducted for applicable sales, and you pay the same amount you originally did.

I suggest you to read the whole page.

@artishard
Lou has already stated before that if you were so curious about this VAT thing, you could always just e-mail them. He probably didn't want to write it out to clog this thread/waste the time of people who dgaf about this whole VAT situation (like me and about 88% of the others who read this thread). I swear, I get excited when I see new comments in here, but it's just people talking about iphone cases or VAT/duty problems.

To stay slightly relevant, I copped the CP B-ball hi's off of sense.



I should really unsubscribe from this thread for all of the reasons above.
post #24389 of 35850
^^copped some bball highs myself. gone ham the last week with cps, hard to pass them up at the 40 and 50 ive been getting. ssense already shipped to, was pleasantly surprised by that
post #24390 of 35850
, this thread is full of entitled asses. Lou has posted many times for people to email him if they really want to know, but instead you get a bunch of dudes going on about laws and stuff they don't really understand so they can save a bit more on stuff that is marked down 30% already + free EMS shipping.
