    I have never been hit with a customs charge from TBS and I have had some pretty large orders with them in the past. Stand up dudes with great customer service.

    would fedex send something if you had to pay customs? as far as I know there was nothing on/in the box to indicate I owed anybody anything more

    I'm in Canada and usually get hit with customs when ordering from TBS. Normally it's a bill from FedEx that I get a few weeks after the order arrives. TBS marks down the value in the package so the charge is never for very much.

    Surprised not many people bought the MMM GATs on Tres Bien. When I ordered mine, all sizes were available.

    275 EURO - 20% VAT - 25 EURO (Spring discount) + $8 shipping = 203 EURO total, which was $266 CAD for me (or 266 USD roughly)

    Quite a steal imo considering Canadian retailers charge $500+ for a new pair, after tax.

    I'm glad I ordered the white lows yesterday, which are now down to one size.

    I found the upper leather of the MMM GATS (bought low white as well) to be pretty pretty meh. Great price, but I'm thinking I should have purchased the painted canvas GATS instead.

    Tres bien customer service has gone down the shitter due to the cancer known as Victor at the helm.

    The only issue i have with Tres Bien is it takes them 30 days to process a refund which in all fairness is taking the piss.
