With shipping the total in my cart was $173US ... I haven't seen the credit card statement to know exactly what I spent after the exchange but I'm sure it was a good $220 CAD, add the $83 from DHL and these ties are a $300+ CAD investment which is too much. As an American though, with basically all of my money in US Dollars and mortgage rates dropping while the Greenback is going further and further, I have to say that this is shaping up to be a great time to be considering the purchase of my first home which would be in Brampton. So, maybe the perfect time to buy a house, even if an awful time to import neckties. Oh, and if the price of 2 ties basically doubles on account of shipping, duty, tax, exchange, fees etc I would hate to think what a couple pairs of good shoes might have added up to. Will definitely be buy my shoes from Jok.
