Threadless 09/09/09 sale - all shirts $9

Threadless are having a special sale today - all tees $9 to celebrate 09/09/09! For those with a penchant for Threadless shirts, now's the time to grab those designs you've been umming-and-aahing about!

Of course postage is extra. And be careful - if ordering a whole load at once you can get stung for import duty. Better sometimes to split up your order to avoid this.

EDIT: consensus seems to be that ordering no more than 3 shirts at a time should keep you under the customs limit for import vat - thanks bunkum100 for the link.

Website is down currently

And now its back up - good deal!

Think they're getting hammered, I can't get in either

Another one of those sites that announce a good sale, then fail to make sure their site can handle the traffic..

poor poor customer focus

nice find! thanks.

Hot! They're very busy.

Great find, love the t-shirts they do! Heat and rep

Nice find, are their sizes pretty normal or is it a good idea to order up/down?

I find the sizes to be fairly normal - I wear large in the UK and order large from threadless and they're about the same.

Thanks for that. :thumbsup:



Shame it's $15 shipping for 3 t shirts, but still some nice gear.

they have a ]sizechart which is pretty reliable.

I'm having no issues with the site at all and just purchased 2 t-shirts. I love this site and I think 90% of my t-shirts are from here!

Cheers ordered 3 - $36 delivered!

Can anyone remember what the customs limit is? I think 3 was the magic safe number, right?

Actually, I've bought off Threadless many times, and they have excellent customer focus, I've got a really decent service every time.

I think I must of got lucky when I ordered. I ordered $120 of stuff from them, go it delivered to my boyfriends work and made it out as a "gift" with a bogus letter etc. I avoided the tax...but I'd be cautious.

I actually ordered 3 about a month ago and got charged £10 for customs.

I ordered 2 and they came through fine.

I've always ordered in batches of 3 and never been charged customs.

Thanks bunkum100, davington, ruch182 and emmajk42:

If the HMRC guidance is correct, then 3 should be the magic number today, and probably also last year when the exchange rate was better. At normal price it looks like we're stuck ordering in twos

Ordered

Thanks for this

Also a heads up - once you've added something to your basket ORDER FAST. By the time i got to checkout, 2 of my tshirts I had chosen had sold out

If I wanted to order 9 tee's would it be better to split the order into 3?

How much import duty would I be paying on that sort of order?

Thanks

Guys, 3 t-shirts in GBP would be:

27 U.S. dollars = 16.3596704 British pounds

...so SHOULD be fine and I'm taking the risk. Customs and excise are nothing if not onconsistent though so if in any doubt get two.

Hope that helps.

site seems to be down, anyone else having problems?

Just my 2p on Threadless t-shirts.

Whilst the designs look good on the website and on the models. The actual t-shirts are made from a horrible quality material, its really rough and thick, and they are a bit of a funny shape if you ask me. Though I appreciated that is much more down to personally body type, they are not very "fitted". Maybe thats different if you wear a small or medium.

I bought a load a while ago, and only ended up wearing one and recently sold the others.

If you look closely on the product information pages, you can see that some of the designs are printed on what they term "threadless tees" and some on american apparel tees, I have a strong preference to the american apparel ones, on which the material seems to be nicer (polycotton instead of just cotton I think)

It is better to order two at a time not three at a time. Nothing to do with customs - shipping is $15 for three, or $9 for two. So if you want six, buy three lots of two, rather than two lots of three.

It works out at about £8.15 per T-shirt, not worth it in my opinion. Can get better ones cheaper than that here.

Excellent stuff, ordered 3! :thumbsup:

The upper sleeves look awful on them tees.

I can just about find 2 or 3 t shirts worth buying,not the best collection :whistling:

Wish these guys accepted Maestro :x I want some of their stuff!

The last time I ordered from Threadless I got 3 T's for about £20 plus postage. Customs wouldn't worry about going a couple of quid over the £18 limit, but unfortunately the Royal Mail aren't so forgiving. VAT came to £3 plus pennies if I remember right, but The Royal Mail charge an extra £8 "admin" charge so my £20 purchase came to over £34 plus postage.

I can't remember if you can get Threadless to mark the parcel as a gift, but if they do it's worthwhile. The limit for gifts is £36.

fyi - this deal is still available...

[INDENT]"Thanks to everyone for sticking with us during our technical tribulations early in this sale! We've since fixed the issue (ninjas) and to make up for it, we're extending the sale until 4 pm ct today (9/10/09)! We've also restocked some reprints and added some new designs... "[/INDENT]

Who has recieved their shirts that they ordered on the 9th? I haven't, I know I picked the 1-3 week shipping though that times is up today. I recieved the shipment email about 3 days after I ordered.
