Everyone knows that the UK has some famous quality clothing brands which are unavailable in Australia.
With the current improvement in the exchange rate buying clothing from the UK is now an economical option, as long as you are aware of some of the pitfalls.
- Be aware that UK sizes are not the same as Australian- a UK 12 will be more of an Aussie 10
- Do searches on the brand as a lot of goods are from factory outlets and available from multiple sellers.There can be substantial differences in prices between sellers
- Always check the cost of postage before bidding- some sellers have high international postage rates and you do not want to find this out the hard way!
- Always pay via paypal
- It is worth thinking about parcel insurance if the item is really special
Most of all just enjoy when you get something special that hopefully not too many other people in Australia are wearing. Brands to look out for - Per Una, Autograph, Boden, Warehouse too name but a few!
