Err American retailers regularly charge 40 USD to ship to Canada (52 CAD). So 30 (CAD?) ain't so bad. 

 

That said, I don't buy from retailers charging 35-40 USD shipping to Canada.

Ok big timer.

Italy, yes. You'll find the best deals at the larger malls with labels that aren't truely global luxury brands.

Do research on the brands at the particular location you are interested in visiting, there's different stuff all over the country. I hit Serravalle. Lardini, Colombo, and Pal Zileri were strong. Gallo, not so much. Worth a pit stop if you're transiting through.

Prada's Space and "The Mall" can be missed IMO.

that's just within the market i follow though - what products are you talking about specifically?

if you take something like a pair of geobaskets on ssense, and compare them to any american retailer's RRP, they will typically be the exact same [at least when doing the currency exchange via google].

I guess I'm basing this alot on Haven, although Common Projects appear to be more expensive across the board there. That might be due import fees merchants are having to pay to stock them.

But I don't do alot of price comparison, to be honest.

cool, yeah was just curious.

if they're more expensive than other North American retailers' prices for the same products, then that doesn't make sense.

they won't be able to compete with the EU though for obvious reasons.

import duty on these kinds of products should be ~ equal between USA & Canada, but sales taxes will depend on particular state & province [which they pay on top of duty when importing products].

Meyvn is 20%-40% off. Good brand list Common Projects, Engineered Garments, Robert Geller, etc.

No shit, Mervyn's has CP's? I think my grandfather has a lifetime discount card there.

That makes sense, given NAFTA. From my understanding Canada is heavier on the taxes (it's how you fund taking care of your population). Following that train of thought I was thinking that maybe Canadians need to pay more for goods, particularly luxury goods (not factoring shared trade agreements).

With the brands I follow ssense is about 20% more expensive than just about any other retailer I can find online.  It also explicitly says it is USD so it seems like the conversion isn't necessary.

if you're browsing from the USA, ssense is likely calculating import duties into their displayed prices [which would make sense seeing as they're ~20% over the RRP you're expecting].

i mean, maybe they're doing that - wouldn't know as i've only ever browsed them via Canada.

I didn't realize there is a 20% import fee to buy from canada; you charge that with your shop as well?
