It equals roughly £12.31 for a $20 hoodie and £15.39 for a $25 hoodie at the current exchange rate

Threadless are running a promotion at the moment that offers free worldwide shipping with any hoodie or "Threadless Select" branded item.

If you've never bought from Threadless before it's worth a look, they have some great original designs. The sizes of the hoodies run from XS to XXL

They have a pretty decent selection of $20 and $25 hoodies at the moment, and because of the free shipping it's worth just ordering one at a time and then you don't get stung with import tax. (Commercial consignments of £18 or less are free from customs duty and import VAT.)

When the page loads click either the $20/$25 button on the left hand side to see all the hoodies available for that price. I'm only pointing this out because for some reason the site keeps showing the t-shirt prices instead of the hoodie prices on the search page.

Just taking a look now - however noticed your link isn't working for me? For anyone else having problems try:

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 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 added a $20 hoodie and went through the checkout to the delivery stage; they offered free standard delivery with an estimated delivery time of 2-3 weeks.
Sounds like a hot deal to me

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.

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.


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.

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?

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

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.
