1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Wondering if people here would be interested in Gammarelli socks. For those that don't know what they are, this is a great article: http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/mes-chausettes-rouge-mazarin-gammarelli-socks/

    They are currently (only) available via: http://www.meschaussettesrouges.com. Cost? $55 a pair (shipped with tracking to the USA) $45 a pair (shipped with tracking to the UK)

    The socks are available in 3 colours, red, black, purple and in either 100% cotton or 100% merino wool. They come sized (UK) from size 4 to 12.5, that is equal to US 5 - 13.5. Europe 37 - 47.

    If there is enough interest I could offer them for no more than $40 shipped worldwide, very possibly even less. (Considering shipping charges, customs etc...)

    Any questions, post here or PM.

    (It is possible to get Mazarin socks as well if there is interest...)

    I like them (both). But they're only $20 a pair sent in the regular mail.

    I mentioned that the price was including shipping with tracking.

    The price on www.meschaussettesrouges.com, is 19.90 Euros for the socks and 6.00 Euros for regular shipping. That is $33, so I'm not sure where you get $20 from.... Just so you know, including shipping, customs and any other charges I would have to pay, I would be paying more than $20 a pair and that is if I bought 100 pairs.

    Whatever the case, I would be offering the socks cheaper than can be bought anywhere else, shipped, with tracking. If you want to save some money then I would happily ship them regular mail at your risk of course.

    Understood. I'm outside the EU, so didn't pay VAT. I bought several pairs, and the shipping is at a flat rate, not per pair. With seven pairs ordered, it worked out at $22 per pair from mouse click to feet. Normal mail took about a week to the Middle East; I'd imagine the same for the US. Also, I'd guess you're less likely to be hit with additional brokerage/customs fees with regular mail rather than couriered package.

    Anyway, I can recommend them highly - I have the fil d'Ecosse from Mazarin and the merino from Gammarelli. They fit to size, are long enough to go over a bigger calf, and feel great. The former are very light and airy, the latter feel very luxurious for the money. Great value.

    To confirm 2 points you mentioned. The price I mentioned, would be for 1 pair. If more than 1 pair was ordered, the shipping price wouldn't change.

    Regarding VAT, that would be taken off for customers outside the UK. However, I don't remember seeing on the www.meschaussettesrouges.com site, that they take off VAT for any orders outside the EU....

    Understood. But you have mentioned "per pair including shipping", so you haven't said what the shipping charge itself is.

    Re. VAT from Mes Chausettes Rouges, it's deducted at checkout automatically.

    My mistake.

    If you're right about the price, then that is more than I would be paying, so I guess this thread is a fail. [​IMG]
