    Anyone know if Oki-ni subtracts VAT? I get to checkout and despite my address reflecting the US, no VAT discount.

    It can take up to 2 months for customs bills.
    Oki-ni will refund VAT AFTER you purchase.

    I spent $250 at End and didn't get charged anything either. This was last year. It's a gamble though, I agree.

    Well all their sale emails said stuff like "SS12 70% one more week!" so I guess in between sale seasons their sale items go back up in price and then drop again once FW markdowns start.

    FedEx has high fees because the courier drives around the world before they come to you with your pack. I bought something from tbs, which is Sweden and next to Norway, but FedEx drove around Europe and then delivered to me. I had to pay high fees, because of the long travel.

    Btw, tbs did mark down the value, but not below the custom and vat limit

    My geo combos measure about 33-34" in the waist with some stretch, size M. They're very slim in the calf though.

    That's like one size larger than on their sizing chart. Hope my shorts aren't too large.

    Loose waist is alright with ISAORA though, because everything else is so damn slim

    They didn't say anything about it, but I knew they were going to charge me extra, because I checked the tracking number and they travelled around Europe. They are also going to charge you for transportation costs, and the transportation costs wouldn't be there if they just crossed the border. TBS marked the pack to €38,5, while I had to pay €30 for VAT, customs and transportation costs. The transportation costs was €20, while the rest was VAT and customs.

    You're saying you got an invoice from a delivery company that had a line item that said "Transportation Costs?"

    Also, I don't think you realize how delivery company works; surely you don't think they pick stuff up at once place and drive straight to the delivery address? Companies have hubs where everything goes first and then ship back out. I've seen packages from one Caribbean country go to Miami and then back down to the other Caribbean country, for example.
