Threadless Mystery Tee 3 Pack with code £14.80ish delivered

Always mixed reviews on these T-Shirts but I think the quality has improved over the last year. Use SPOOKY30 for 30% off all full price items, I used it on a mystery pack so will get 3 t shirts

Just wondering if anyone can clarify whether there are additional charges? Or if it is as the OP says and will cost around £15?

well for me my paypal came up $23.90 too but using their current conversion rate that came to slightly over £15, with the prepaid customs option coming at a hair under £18. i like the designs but with such a long shipping time plus the uncertainty over customs charges/delays and the random factor think i'll skip this deal.

heated anyway for anyone willing to take the risks.

decent deal if you are looking to buy some of the disney or marvel shirts which are hardly ever included in their sales.

Unfortunately at this price you can only buy 1 shirt at a time before you start attracting custom charges

Plus $9 postage and the quality for the last ones I bought was awful (very thin cheap cotton) - so much so I'm never buying again.

They identified quality as a major problem and have since stopped using some suppliers and have created their own much higher quality blank

I did get smacked with a £15 import tax/brokerage charge though! Should probably think about that before ordering.

Anyone know if the shirt quality is back up. They moved manufacture to India and the shirts were very very poor


I bought about 6 months ago, quality was awful. Shame designs are awsome.


They used to be great, the shirts were American made tube spun so you didn't have seams up the sides hence "Threadless"

The 3 guys who started it sold it last year one has stayed on in some capacity but they changed shirt manufacturers a lot in a short space of time, if you ask about it on Facebook or twitter the either delete the comment or give you the "we're going for a vintage feel" company BS

Still at least Teefury and Redbubble still seem to be doing right

Voted cold due to misleading title - these T-shirts are not $7.50. With shipping they are $16.50....


Well obviously you wouldn't just buy one - if you buy three that works out $31 or just under £20 or £6.56 per t-shirt which is a bargain.

$5 + shipping + customs + parcelforce fee = cold.

No customs or Parcel Force fee if value of goods under £15 (which gets you 4 x $5 shirts). Postage charges are not counted toward this value.




That's incorrect, the postage is counted as part of the overall value.

I stand corrected - I did not know that.

The shirts arrived today though, and the value on the customs form was the goods-only value ($20, so well within the limit), yay!

Threadless have had better deals when shipping has been free, then you can avoid customs altogether

Shipping free doesn't avoid customs tax.


Yes it would as you would just order 1 t-shirt at a time so it is under the threshold.

VAT is chargeable on goods valued at over £15 according to HMRC. With the pound at around $1.55 that suggests a limit of two to avoid the taxman.
bearandom123
As long as the items are under £18 in value you shouldn't get import tax, I thought these shipping costs covered that?
It's £15 now - buy more than one T-shirt at a time and you'll pay 20% VAT plus an extra £8 to Royal Mail.
I have never heard of these but they seem to be good according to the posts.

I got about 10 t-shirts from the last sale, which was a few weeks ago. Quality of the t-shirts was disappointing, marking it as a gift didn't work for me and I got charged £14 tax plus a £12.50 "service fee" by Royal Mail. Took three weeks to arrive.
Did you not find the t shirt quality really poor? Which is a damn shame since the designs are awsome.
Send as a gift would only up the customs limit to £36 from £18 I reckon.

Personally, I tend to restrict my threadless orders to 2 t-shirts per order to ensure I don't end up paying customs.
"but think you can avoid this by ticking the 'send as a gift' option at checkout"

That will not work, you have been warned! ;)
Have ordered from them before and had great service, even with a few problems that were quickly sorted.

Likely as not you'll be hit for UK duty tax though, so factor it in and if you are lucky enough to avoid it then an extra bonus.

But do you know how much do I have to pay for the tax manwhen I buy more than two?


If the value is over £18 and the Royal Mail (or HMCE) decide to charge you then it is an extra 20% of the value of the items (this does not include the shipping cost) plus a handling fee. For Royal Mail this is a staggering £8!!

I have had a few $30 orders (3 x $10 t-shirts) come through fine, just one landed a fee and because of the scandalous handling fee it cost an extra £11. To be safe order 2 at a time. I cannot remember if it works out any cheaper per shirt to do a big order and get it delivered by courier but then you have to pay VAT and whatever the courier handling fee is.
The quality of the shirts has dropped considerably since the buyout. They claim to be going for a "soft vintage feel" when you ask about it. In reality they're Indian made thread bare junk.

They've even got stitching up the sides of the torso. Originally the cotton was tube sewn with the only stitching being the sleeves hence 'Threadless' It's a shame.
But do you know how much do I have to pay for the tax manwhen I buy more than two?
I totally agree, I've mailed them in the past about getting a European distribution centre or even better, a British one and they've said it could happen.

I've just ordered two tees anyway at $10 each with $9 delivery. Works out at just under £19 for two which im happy with!
will be wonderful if come with free shipping~~

my t-shirts have arrived, but one word of warning, on the declaration cert the full price was listed (each item) not the discounted price, so likely to have to pay VAT plus admin charge, when it was actually under £18 with discount plus it will be at the non-discounted price. It does annoy me that threadless gave a higher amount on the declaration than I paid.
you should be able to spend $35 in t-shirts as 25% will come off that which is $8.75 = $26.25 converted using current exchange rate = £16.85. Still safely under the £18 limit which is for the value of the good not the postage, though if the value of the good is over £18 you can pay Vat on the postage too (afaik).
Be sure to check the box to say the package is a gift just to be sure of avoiding import duties. I forgot to do it last time I ordered from Threadless and got stung by Customs.

@fort: I'd say fairly typical; I normally get medium from Next/River Island etc and would say that these are a similar size. I think they use 3 different tshirt suppliers though, so not sure if there's a lot of variation. Its been a year or so since I last ordered any!

@agmayu: yes can't see why that would be a problem, just the shipping costs may add up. Even so, it'll probably still only work out at like £10 a tee

Also added some information on a $5 voucher to the OP.


Edited By: roadeh on Aug 22, 2011 06:31: Added coupon information.
What are the sizes like?
Can you make multiple orders of 2 items, and skip the customs? Anyone tried this?
I love threadless tees.
But I think the customs limit is highly unfair and ultimately puts people off ordering items because the charge is so steep. It should be much more incremental.

I would if I could, but I can't :(
(still a good deal though)
Got 5 of their t shirts in a recent sale for $35.00: postage was another $15.00 and I was pleasantly surprised to have no customs charges... very happy with the deal. Guess it was my lucky day...

Just ordered 7 tee's, $70 plus $30 shipping. Paid extra on the shipping, cos it was only $2 to go from 3 weeks, to 5 days, and then another $1.50 to go to 3 days...or something like that anyway. Never ordered from the States before, and I know I will hit this tax you guys are talking about, how do I go about paying that?

I ordered 10 tees last time and got the fast shipping too.
Tees arrived within the week but the tax was £20 :(
We paid the UPS guy I think.

I cannot find anything on threadless to confirm it but I think the free shipping is for domestic orders only so you will have to add on $9 for single item shipping.


I've ordered twice from them already with this offer, I do check things before I post them - it's just a shame you couldn't actually be bothered and just speculated.


Actually, just after posting I went through to the checkout stage and on the page to put in the credit card details it was still showing $9 shipping. Not sure why it showed that for me and not others. I will take another look but it appears the site is down at the moment.

Is it free delivery on ANY hoodie or just on Select items?


Yes it is any hoodie as I said in my original post, also that's what the Threadless website says at the top of it (although I'm aware it was down when you asked) I ordered a $20 hoodie and a $25 hoodie myself. All I can think that happened is you added a t-shirt to the trolley by accident instead of a hoodie, I know it usually costs $9 delivery for 1 t-shirt. Free shipping on hoodies is definitely still working, I just checked again.

Great site but be prepared to get clobbered by customs. My $5 tee shirt had VAT added and an £8.50 handling charge added by Royal Mail. I asked Threadless to label the package as ' Gift' but they wouldn't so i never uesd them again.


It shouldn't have if it cost you $5 - the limit for customs charges is £18, even then they sometimes waive it if it's slightly over that. You must have ordered more than £18 worth of stuff, if you didn't and you got charged you should have complained to royal mail or customs.

They can't mark it as a gift on the customs label because that would be lying as it's a merchandise bought from a company and they would get in trouble for it. They're not some shady ebay seller from China.

I've ordered sub £18 worth of goods from abroad many times and never been taxed, because... well, that is the law.

I haven't got the original receipt but as i remember it the total order was for $25 which i thought would be under the £18 limit.
The Vat that was charged was only a small amount, it was the £7.50 'special handling charge' that i object to. I contacted Royal mail and they said that was the cost of moving the package to Mt Pleasant so that the customs charge could be applied.


It would have been under £18 surely? I think you should've argued it out with them a bit more, asked them how they worked it out to be over £18. I ordered $25 worth of shirts in that sale and I never got a customs charge.

Yeah I hate that charge the Royal Mail whack on too

3.5 Why do I have to pay a handling fee to Royal Mail?
If customs charges are payable upon importation, Royal Mail charge a handling fee to cover the costs for carrying out customs procedures paying any customs duties or VAT due and collecting it from you. If customs examination is required, or if information is missing from the declaration, Royal Mail open, repack and reseal the package. Royal Mail fees are itemised separately on the charge label and are collected at the same time as customs charges. As they are completely separate from any customs charges, any queries about them should be raised with Royal Mail or Parcelforce Worldwide as appropriate.

Very tempting. Do you know if the shipping cost would go on the customs form? £18 is the limit I think for importing before you're hit with customs tax and I've been bitten by that before.

You take a risk at the end of the day - everyone should already know about customs rules.

Yes - if you mark as a gift it should come in plain packaging which in-turn should mean customs don't bother to open it.

But meh, I'm surprised that quality t-shirts for £7 each doesn't appeal to many but I think it's clear for all to see that most people on HUKD would rather buy something five times than buy it once.

I'll be happy at receiving 6 T-Shirts and a hoodie for about £50 - and if I get charged more fees I'll have to roll with the punches.
Hadouken!
Mark the item as a gift and you shouldn't have to pay any duty on it - or am I being way off here?

I've always err-ed on the side of caution and ordered below the customs limit but still have been stung by the bloody royal mail even though I was under the limit. (taking into account exchange rates etc)


What with online international shopping, Customs got wise to the "gift" thing several years ago and the same rules now apply to them as to items you are buying. Even taking tags off clothes and saying they are used, doesn't work. They've got it all stitched up pardon the pun.
I didn't place the order but with 3 t shirts in basket delivery charge came to $9 USD

I've always err-ed on the side of caution and ordered below the customs limit but still have been stung by the bloody royal mail even though I was under the limit. (taking into account exchange rates etc)

Don't understand why so cold?
Some of the best designs on tees for a very reasonable price.
Far better than the Topman/River Island/Urban Outfitters clone-u-likes.


Maybe because the OP hasnt told us how much shipping is, if you don't spend $75. The site won't even say, until you send them your address. Also, if you order stuff to the value of £26 I think or more including the postage cost, you are most likely to have the parcel stopped and you will be charged not only excise duty but also a "holding fee" which is even more. And they can hold it for three months before even telling you. Ive had this happen with a jacket I bought from an American Ebay seller. I paid £70 incl shipping. three months later got a letter from Customs telling me if I wanted it, i had to pay £12 duty and £24 holding fee. grrrr. so yes.. that could be why this doesn't seem such a hot deal to some.

ps. I havent voted.

Love Threadless, bought a bundle in the Black Friday sale... then they went $9 - argh!!!
I regularly buy these t-shirts. some very nice prints - I usually go for a couple of $10 shirts per order to avoid the import tax stuff

Remember to take into account custom duties if ordering over a certain value. These are fun T'shirts and a bit different from the usual - would make nice gifts.

Damn! I'd like a hoodie, but I don't fancy the price with duty added on.

Yeah I can concur with the custom's.

At there last sale i bought 3 t shirts for $30. This just tipped me over the VAT limit, and so I got charged £3, BUT they also charge a £8 admin fee, so the total was £11 extra, gutted.

Stick at 2!


You can't even get 2 with the current exchange rate as you have to count postage in the £18 limit on not paying VAT.

Don't worry amibees! I appreciate this deal. The website is back online. I guess it must have been midnight in the states so they were adjusting the prices. Just paid $45 for 5 t-shirts + $7 shipping to a friend in the states who'll bring them back for me after christmas. The "food chain" one is only £3! "A simple plan" and "the communist party" are the best t-shirts I have ever seen.
website is goosed.
