    I don't have to feign ignorance, it's pure ignorance. I wish I could keep up with fashion though, I'd have something to talk to you and Synthese about when we run out of Jäger next time we meet.

    1) We should never run out of Jager.
    2) It's all a matter of conditioning. Read Hypebeast and Fourpins daily for the next five months, and we'll both seem very previous level.

    That's because clothing is a luxury that no one really needs.

    Yet furniture and diamonds have a 0% import tax.

    well, that's because Scandanavia exports furniture, so it's not like they have anything to fear, and diamonds. I mean, what sort of fool buys diamonds online from someone overseas?

    The effort involved in selling crap on the internet is a great lesson in not buying a lot of junk in the first place, especially when I have to write all the Chinese characters in tiny letters for the packing slips :)

    It's for non EU imports, so everything entering from a non EU country has to pay those fees and not only online purchases.

    Which is why they should rush the TTIP. We may get some evil transnational corporations that are out of control, but we'll also get cheap clothes [​IMG]

    It's a very interesting thing to look at what countries try to control through import taxes, or tariffs if you will, isn't it? You can destroy industries, encourage them, change social behaviors, etc. through often modest tax increases or reductions.

    Mens styling compared to what women are exposed to is horrible, i often find myself browsing womens online stores for inspo. Just look at totokaelo.com, similar brands offered for both yet womens is so much better. Maybe its as simple as silhouette. Than again grass is always greener.
