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.
Request to UPS?
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.
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.
I was told starting at 1099 if I remember correctly.
That's SF for you, just when you think you're free, you get sucked back into it. Lol
Saw Munro as well. Made in China and half canvassed on the models I saw.
How is the selection? I might make it to Harry at FCP on Boxing Day after checking out Brooks Brothers at RBC.
I want a Drakes madder tie. Did they have any madder?
@clarksdb before dropping any retail $ on Drakes. Look up styleunicorn on eBay. He is local and has a bunch of Drakes usually. I bought 2 grenadines off him for a song IMO. Good guy!
Message him if you don't see anything you like in his listings.
He's got them on ebay for $90. I think they're 50% off now at the store so you're looking at the same price.
@clarksdb easiest way is to just check the website before going in, I took a good look and there's nothing in store that's not listed on there. From what I can see there aren't any madders on sale.
Drake's are 2 for 150 CAD at the Harry Rosen outlet
