post #31711 of 33197

Does anyone know what is the maximum value a package can be valued at when shipped from USA before it will get charged tax through Canadapost when coming into Canada? I am considering buy a pair of sneakers and I am not sure if $90USD will get hit or not.

While I've never lived in Canada, nor do I regularly ship goods to Canada, a few seconds with Google led me to https://www.canadapost.ca/tools/pg/manual/PGcustoms-e.asp#1382741

2.2.2 seems to directly address your question:

*begin quoted text*

Mail items valued at less than $20CDN

The CBSA does not assess duty or tax on mail items valued at $20CDN or less. However, this general rule does not apply to certain products including intoxicating beverages, cigars, cigarettes, manufactured tobacco, and publications where the supplier is required to register under the Excise Tax Act. Also, this may not be combined with other exemptions.

The CBSA does not consider items to be of low value in cases where a single transaction is split into smaller shipments to keep the value below $20CDN.

*end quoted text*

Of course, it may be that Canada Post's enforcement is imperfect, so perhaps many items over the $20CDN limit manage to slip through, without tax being charged. I couldn't say. But $20CDN seems to be the official answer. With various exceptions. Oh, and per 2.2.3, the cut-off amount for most gifts is $60CDN.

Hey everyone. I'm trying to get some info on a wool jacket I just picked up. Would like to figure out the approximate age and possibly a value.

Looks 1940s or early 1950s.  Is it missing a button on the sleeve cuff?

post #31715 of 33197
Good eye! Sorry, should have mentioned that. It is missing that 1 button. But that seems to be the only really flaw, aside from some wear to the cuff lining. I figured it was pre-1960, because I couldn't find a material tag anywhere on it.. Thanks for the response!

I have a hunting jacket from the same era that I wear during the winter and paid about 70 dollars for it at a vintage store. You could probably get at least that much out of yours, especially if you can source a matching sleeve button from an antique store and sew it on with cotton thread.

Is there any guide to shoe colors and clothing pieces? I want to buy some Loake Heston in tan would it go with grey/black clothes? New to classic menswear not sure what colors to go with yet.

^Mid gray, yes. Dark gray and black, no.

Black pants or suits require black shoes. You have some flexibility with grays, but those are not the most versatile shoes- to wear with charcoal, you'd need a substantially darker brown or a burgundy.

Black jeans maybe.

Does this go together with a navy blazer and grey trousers? It would be for an engagement party. Square is 100% linen from Kent Wang. I will do the same square fold as a white linen square.

Will you be wearing a shirt? :rimshot:

 

But, seriously, it does depend on the shirt.

 

I would do that tie, pink shirt, white square – the pink and blue are nice together, but I like having a hank pick up on a color in a tie.

 

They are very summery colors.

As YRR92 notes, it depends on the shirt. But there's certainly nothing inherently wrong with wearing that pocket square, that tie, and grey trousers, with a navy blazer.

Oh, and it also depends on the trousers' shade of grey. Light grey trousers with a navy blazer is a classic look. Dark grey trousers with a navy blazer tends to be much less pleasing a combination.

You indicate that it'll be worn to an engagement party. Assuming it's an engagement party where grey pants and navy blazer is an appropriate form of dress, I can't see any problem. For some engagement parties, anything beyond jeans and a t-shirt would be inappropriately formal. For other engagement parties, anything less than a suit would be excessively casual. But I'll assume that you know where in that spectrum of formality the engagement party in question falls.

And wear pink-and-navy argyle OTC socks. Just because. smile.gif

I believe 100 usd is the psychological limit...

What's the name of that shoe firm I believe located in Paris which offers men's leather woven slipper style loafers in many different colors? Saint Crispin website shows no such.
