So this is a tricky one.
I recently ordered a tan suede Matchless jacket in their "Craig" style. It's a badass jacket and I've no regrets so far. I paid $1440 USD for it to be sent to me from Matchless in Italy. Import fees came out to $95.40 with a tariff rate of 6.00% when I saw a bill from UPS a week later. The Duty Class marked on the shipment detail was 4203.10.4095 (this is important later).
So yeah, I liked it enough, I ordered another a few days later, only this one in Nabuk Wet color.
But for whatever weird ass reason, it fit slightly different. A bit too small for my liking so I returned it, shipping it back overseas on my dime. Anyway, here I am a week later and I've just received an invoice for import fees on this order from UPS. To the tune of a whopping $407.88! Wtf? Same jacket, same value on the shipment detail. Shipped from the same location. Only this one shows a Duty Class of 6201.13.4030 and a corresponding tariff rate of 27.70%.
So am I expected to really pay $400+ just because I ordered a jacket I ended up not even keeping that doesn't even line up with the bill I got only a week prior for the exact same item in a different color? What kind of fucked up scam is this??
Anyone know anything about stuff like this?
