I'm not sure whether this, or B&S, is the place for the question, but here goes.


I'm headed over to SK to teach English in a couple months. I'm not a huge guy, but I'm fairly muscular (5'11, 190lbs) and so my clothing selection will be somewhat limited. Given that, I'll be looking at these forums for clothing. However, I have no idea if it's even worth it, as I have no clue to the shipping costs from the US to SK.

Does anyone know? Or would getting custom made clothing to my size be cheaper than buying + shipping from here?


Thanks for any advice.

The problem with shipping to South Korea is that it will get there 6-8 weeks after it ships from here, or it just never gets there. I've stopped shipping to South Korea, even though I never shipped EMS and i would assume that it would be quicker/more secure, just not worth the headache to me.

We have shipped to South Korea in the past via USPS, which is the least expensive worldwide. The cost of shipping really depends on whether the person / store from whom you buy requires UPS or allows USPS. Our customers have been very dissatisfied with UPS because of their "broker fees," which can hit $50.
