    I'm not having much luck here in Vancouver - bought an SNS tshirt from Tres Bien that was marked at €19 and FedEx charged me $19.37 in fees. It wasn't charged at delivery, I just received an invoice a week after getting the package.

    Does anyone know if Black Celebration marks down items when shipping to the US? Is the fee that FedEx sometimes charges generally for customs or are they dicking you with un-necessary brokerage fees?

    Just received a package from Haven to the United States. They were kind enough to mark down for me from $600 to $85. Shipped with USPS, so no customs.

    Does any one have experience with superdenim? Do they mark down? Also, I really hate fedex's invoice system of billing you a week later --- such a hassle.

    Anyone here in Canada have experience with receiving jeans from Gustin? Considering they were made in SF and the denim is from North Carolina, it should in theory be a NAFTA ticket item, so will it be just HST or will I get hit with a surprise tariff as well?

    Looking to proxy $300 trousers from US to the UK.
    Can anybody suggest a carrier with whom I'd minimise the risk of getting hit with customs. Anybody have experience with sending stuff from US to UK?
    Thanks

    Has anyone ordered from shopnumber4? Its based in Kuwait, and I know the company is legit, but are there any issues getting the packages through customs and actually to you?

    Unless you get the value of the package marked at £20 or below, you will almost certainly be hit by customs.

    Anyone in Canada noticed that Yoox started passing the customs charges to the shoppers? up to end of June these were included in the price.

    Anyone have any experience with Kamakura Shirts coming into Canada? I just had one shirt from Ratio clothing sit in the customs wing at Canada Post's Gateway plant in Mississauga for the better part of a week.

    Any Canadians know if customs and duties are expected when ordering from Rakuten?

    Same I expect to get dinged. Rakuten wouldn't lower value or mark as gift.

    Worse is need supply co. They marked value regular price instead of sale price. Got dinged bad. Wtf
