Scot and Stu, What were your experiences with import duty when buying suits off of the German ebay sellers? Â I have considered buying from "krawattenprofi" a couple of times but have never pulled the trigger. Â The seller does not make any mention of duties in their auction, but in reading feedback from other buyers, it appears that some have been charged import duties of up to 30%. Â What have your experiences been with duty from the German sellers?
I wasn't charged a dime. Then again, I live in Puerto Rico, which, while legally a territory of the U.S., often operates in a gray area itself with regards to duties and such. I know that when I was living in the U.S. last year, I never paid duties on stuff from England and Malaysia (shoes from Plal), or my Chan suit from Hong Kong.
