do you know some good place in Vancouver can buy TR cheapper, I just bought them last saturday, I can return them for a full refund. $265 Canada Dollars or US dollars ?? coz I bought this jeans at $275 canada dollars, about 240 US
oh I assumed you were a girl cause you are looking for female jeans. But anyways you can always buy them from ebay and us online stores for much much much much cheaper.
a pair of TR in the states that is ~$170USD is ~$265CAD here. 170USD is approximately $195CAD. So basically its ~25% more expensive here than in the USA (based on a basic pair like what you bought). So right there you have a savings of ~25% if you buy from the states, not factoring shipping costs. You can usually get a 15-30% coupon code with online stores as well. So $170USD with (for example) 20% off is $136USD or ~$156CAD, so now its ~40% cheaper than the USA.
now!! if you do get taxed at the boarder, then you are being taxed 14% on 156CAD instead of 14% on 265CAD. only thing is that if they ship with USPS (don't ever order something from the states over $20CAD with UPS) you get charged an additional $5 for customs handling fee, and then theres the shipping cost. But that 40% savings is more than enough to cover all that. Also if you buy from certain online stores, or ebay you can sometimes get away with paying 0 tax and 0 customs handling fee, so that is even more savings.
and thats is the end of my lecture of why not to buy TR (or most popular designer denim) in Canada. There are some good sales here, but hardly ever.
Just to tell you I got my Joey Big T Raw in a super rare size cheaper than you got your dark vintage. mine retail $240USD, yours retail $170USD.
