    Numbers on that second pair are way off. What's up with that?

    I have had several shipments from the UK via DHL within the past year and have not had to pay customs on any of them.

    That's not uncommon. The degree to which it is diagonal may be a bit extreme, but I've seen a number of pairs that are like that.

    Good to know, I've never personally seen that :) Wouldn't be happy if my nearly $400 shoes came like that though.

    Do they also mark it as a gift? Marking them as gift is more trustworthy than a $10 jacket (for example).

    I know you guys hate customs charges and them marking full value and/or a gift (I don't like it either)..............but you do realize this is illegal for companies to do and that's why they usually won't do it? You end up paying about the same as you would in the states (sometimes less) so it's not like they're grilling you on the price, it works out to about the same. Not to mention if they did mark your $1000 purchase as $100 and it was lost.........somebody's going to be losing out big time.

    The main reason I'm saying this is I've seen some guys on here discount great online stores just because that won't mark as gift/lower value which is stupid. Example-I just ordered from WrongWeather last month, seamless transaction, super quick to emails and measurements and 3 business day delivery from DHL. Yes, was charged about 10% customs fees, but it was still way cheaper than anything in the states.

    ^ I agree with you here on the custom charges, although it's painful for me also, being in Switzerland (so not in European Union) so I pay custom taxes from any outside destination. And I consider fair to pay the taxes when for example the VAT is removed, like for ordering from WrongWeather, especially in Portugal where the VAT is 23%.
    I'm a bit annoyed with Yoox only, where I pay for any order a minimum of 25 euros shipping (and it's only express shipping) and 25 euros taxes. Yoox price difference between different countries is difficult to understand.

    So please stop complaining when ordering from Europe and the VAT is removed.

    Dockers.com is doing 30% off today. They seem to be sold out of my size in everything of course.
