Not to derail on this thread but as a Canadian who has to pay for international shipping I've never once wasted time debating a $20 shipping cost and there are other options as spoken above. These ties are not mass produced items as one would get at Drakes or a shop selling Zegna yet we all have dropped $100+ bucks on those many times. You will never see anyone in the office, city or country walking around with these on their neck. You are the only one and for that privilege the cost is far from prohibitive. Step up and pay the charge if you want the item, the seller is just a guy sitting around in his living room putting together some snazzy stuff for all of us to drool over.
