    No.... I am a Premarital Agreement fan, but the wives were loads more expensive even so.

    While this seller is not my cup of tea due to his prices, I've never heard of anybody getting a bad deal from him. Too bad you have to go this route.

    I hate to be bearer of bad news but it might be tied to the Global Shipping Program (GSP) and not import taxes. If that's the case you might end up being charged VAT anyway, because that should be between you and your government. The GSP is pretty much universally panned over on the leather jacket side of TFL. Lot of horror stories associated with it.

    I kind of wondered how this would work, so it's likely I will be charged import taxes (again) before I can finally hold that hat in my hands. It will have doubled in price by then. The invoice does state the charge is for international shipping and import taxes though. Lesson learned.

    I have no sales tax in Oregon, but this will kill any thought of me ordering goods from other countries if taxes are being imposed by internet, shipping and intermediary companies.

    I have been thinking of caps from Keith Lo Bue, hats from Hornskov, etc, but no way if trade gets taxed to death.

    "Wool" Borsalino, hehe. Gift for my friend Willy. I love ignorant eBay sellers. Do NOT educate.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    One day, after clicking on roughly 50,000 Stetson 5Xs, one will turn out to be a 5X Clear Beaver with a low BIN. It happened to me once, so only 49,000 or so clicks to go!

    eBay Victories, Defeats, Gripes, and HOPES!

    Ha. I knew you won it! I was writing with the seller to establish a date on the hat; he had already turned down my low, low offer when I left for some laundry and came back...and it was gone!

    It looks like a great addition to the collection!

    We ought to make it a team trick. One of us makes a really low offer, and the other makes a half-decent one and swoops in!

    Blame me. I told Max about this one. If the brim had been wider I would have tried to get it.

    My offer was absurdly low, yours was much closer on an interesting 50s 15. It’s a really cool hat.

    Next time I make the absurd bid, then.

    Ah the classic price fix! It's proven to be very effective. I have a friend who has a similar furniture company to mine. We like to call it 'bid coordination'

    BIN Nutria Stetson bowler currently en route. It’s a 5/8 size that I’m taking another gamble on but feel slightly more confident after my 5/8 7x CB from GW which fits exceptionally well.
    Also was doing some heavy searches the past few days, only one other post of a Nutria Bowler? My first ‘nut’ btw, and it’s low BIN has me hoping it’s a true eBay steal.
