Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us.
In line with many global brands, the price of our products varies, depending on where an item is purchased. Our pricing takes into account the costs of doing business internationally, which vary significantly country to country. Most importantly, J. Crew prides itself on always offering the highest quality and craftsmanship in our products and our prices are reflective of the value we deliver, in the context of each local market. We are, however, offering free shipping through April 30th, 2012 for any international order.
I apologize for the inconvenience that this causes. If there’s anything else I can assist you with, or you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

Thank you for the prompt response. Based on your comments, I think I shall buy from your website, enjoy the slight discount afforded by our strong currency at the moment, then use shipito.com or a dozen other similar forwarding services to get my products from your US site.
While your generous offer for free shipping is tempting, I think I might take a $30 hit on shipping it from the US myself and just settle for the 30% discount of your Australian site prices.
Thanks again for nothing.
