    Thanks!

    So if anyone is wondering and for what it's worth: I ordered from Nomad and no customs fees (order was ~$400).

    In my experience Royal Mail is fine. It's FedEx and UPS that you have to worry about. Of course it sounds like it all depends, but generally the post office doesn't seem concerned with customs oddly enough.

    As for VAT, you probably should have sorted that before ordering. I had a sizing question from them over the Summer and got a very quick reply, so you might want to reach out. Some places (Coggles, Liberty) don't deduct VAT at all (which is IMO complete bullshit and reason to never order from them).

    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with shipping from Trunk Clothiers. Their site says they use Fedex, which fucking sucks, but I was wondering if they mark their stuff down like TBS.

    How much in duties can I expect to pay on roughly a $300 purchase from wrongweather?

    Stupid question, but the NAFTA still holds if I buy a product from Europe? Say a pair of Vibergs from Superdenim.co.uk?

    Can you elaborate? What I can tell you is that Superdenim does mark down the value of the package, they have for me every time and that includes an order of 4 pairs of McNairys, and shipping is quite fast. Can't remember the carrier they use, but it's fast and they mark down the package. 3-4 orders last year and never been hit with customs.
