    If it makes you feel any better they only had 45s left in the cp derbies.

    Those black NS for $74 shipped is a steal if anyone needs a 31 or 33.

    CP BBall in white is super tempting at $215 shipped. Melon's pics looked pretty good.

    VAT is deducted, duties added, and shipping is £30 (for trousers, shirts, sweaters; could be more for heavier items). The end result? You're paying two or three per cent less than UK price and then almost $50 to get it home.

    Yes. However it's not always the case.

    For wool/cotton stuff, after VAT deducted and add import duty, you may pay 2-3% percent lower than UK price or about 1% percent higher than UK price. depends on the material, cotton, nylon, wool, knits or woven.

    For leather jacket, after VAT deducted and add import duty, you pay pay about 92% percent of UK price. For some stuff, UK pricing is already lower than US pricing. If you are going to make purchase a 1000 GBP jacket. for same discount UK pricing is cheaper. What you get is far more than the 30 GBP shipping.

    For most of credit card companies, you need to pay 3% percent transaction fee, and, US import duty is not refundable.
    For example UK price is 1000, after VAT deducted is 900 and import tax is 50. You end up paying 950+30 shipping=980 for the item
    If you return, you will only get 900 back and 30 shipping and 50 import duty is non-refundable.
    I don't know if you are going to pay extra return shipping.

    I'll let you know if it doesn't work out. I was on the fence, since I got a PS navy wool blazer from MrP also... but the beams one looks casual, while the PS one is definitely formal.

    Code is not working anymore at TBS. Checked this morning the 50-70 sale, not much left.

    Matches has further drops (up to 70%) since last night. Prices similar to Mr. Porter for what I just bought: Acne camel coat and Lanvin high tops.
