Yes, so low. I've also ordered loads from the US over the years, including a $400 Grateful Dead boxed set, and not paid duties. But I've paid duty on ridiculously low amounts too. And Tony waged a long war a few years ago with GD merchandising who had a policy of showing the invoice amounts on the customs declaration so duties were paid on the shipping costs. Of course, there are also many "aware" suppliers who helpfully show a low value on the declaration form ....

Here's someone in the UK who got caught with Customs Duties:

The t-shirts were a bit more expensive then - but the higher £18 import limit applied.

Oh dear, poor Gill! Now I think about it, I think I've generally had kind suppliers who write 'gift $5' and suchlike on the customs forms. A bit cheeky, but saves my poor wallet - £15 is ridiculously low.

If anyone in the US is thinking about ordering T-shirts & other merchandise, now is the time to do it! Bandmerch is relocating its fulfillment centre and is offering free US shippping via USPS until June 19 to compensate for the delay in shipping. Alas - but unsurprisingly - the offer does not extend to overseas orders.

Link as per somewhat-nifty's post above:

Happy shopping!

I keep waiting for all the other merchandise to become available. They couldn't have possibly sold out of every pin, poster, tour book, etc. The prices on the shirts, tie, and jacket are very good. Thank you for the head's up on this Wendy.

Hey Mary - if you keep an eye out on eBay these sometimes turn up, there are sellers who seem to have ties with official sources and I have got official key rings, pin badges etc from eBay. Cohenyislander is one seller as I recall...

Wow, these are great prices!

Does anyone have the "Heart Zip Jogger"? What material is it?

Well my two $12 tshirts arrived today, and no customs charge! So now I have two different Beautiful Losers tops to choose from :D Edit: though that said, one size M is on the small side, while the other size M is mahoosive, but I can live with it.

Mnky, not sure about the Jogger top, but all the merch seems to be reasonable quality...

Does anyone know the sizes of the Heart Zip Jogger? I cannot find an option where they have the sizes :)
