    That's painful, another reason to avoid sites that use UPS as their shipping partner.

    Ouch. You should submit a request for adjustment. NAFTA is useful for one thing at least...

    I'm guessing UPS took the rest of the $ in "brokerage fees"... Can't get that back from the CBSA

    Most of that will be UPS's anal ripping brokerage fees.

    Sorry, I assumed some of that was duties. You can request a form to the CBSA to adjust, but if that's all just brokerage fees and HST, yeah, you're screwed.

    Hey All,

    Has anyone heard anything about "Munro Tailoring" They have a section in Harry Rosen in FCP. There`s a nice powder blue suit on sale I have my eye on but the fact they are a total unknown factor in terms of quality is a stumbling block. Google search doesn't reveal much except some marketing etc. Thanks !

    I've seen it too. Tried a jacket, didn't like it. Very stiff construction imho. It is MTM option, if I understood correctly. They have fabrics to chose from which were nothing special, and price was comparable to Samuelsohn MTO (if I remember), which is better option (again, in my opinion).
    They mentioned Holland as an origin country...

    They did have very nice long sleeve polo shirts from same maker, but really nice, dressy, shirt like... price was something like >$300. High, imo.

    Thanks for the feedback. One of the sales reps mentioned they are having a Samuelsohn MTM event in mid Jan. Will just wait for that then.

    Do you remember what they ask for these Munro suits? I have a price of North of $1200 in my mind, depending on fabric, but can't remember exactly.
