Exploiting low GBP and EUR

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Now that the GBP and EUR are declining due to the Brexit, it might be a good time to buy European brands in the local currency. Two brands that come to mind are Charles Tyrwhitt and Suitsupply. Can anyone else suggest other "budget" brands? Thanks.

I don't know that the budget brands will be effected as much as the higher-end British brands like Crockett & Jones and Drake's. There's only so much more affordable a $30 shirt can get; but if $450 buys what had previously been $650 worth of shoes, that's huge.

Agreed. Tyrwhitt was more of a suggestion than an example.

However, a suit from Suitsupply that retails here for around $500+ tax can be purchased on the Suitsupply website for 299 EUR, which now translates into roughly $330 (plus a VAT refund of around 18%). I'm looking for other such opportunities.

Thanks.

How do you get euro pricing to show, while keeping a US shipping address?  As soon as I enter my address the pricing changes to USD (and goes up accordingly).

As far as I know, you cannot pay in EUR for shipment to the USA. But I hope to travel to Europe sometime this summer, so I can just have it shipped to my hotel.

My wife was already on me last night about that. It will be interesting to see how it plays out though there are a number of institutions working to stabalize that drop.
