paying the extra custom and duties off those sites is a bitch too.
luckily i have a bunch of local shops around me that carry diamond and can sometimes do specific orders for certain things. i can avoid the extra charges and rape prices, just gotta wait a little longer. i was able to get basically everything i wanted from the holiday drop, it's allllll good haha.
I'm getting charged $30 in duties every single time i order. Made a big order for xmas and got charged $50. It's ridiculous that i have to pay duties. Your lucky from where i am i can say that i only know of 1 streetwear shop that would carry Diamond or any other brands.
I live in Europe and I had the same problems with the customs when I bought straight from the sites in the US, plus the shipping is double. Now, I have my buddy in the states order, re-pack and ship as a gift with low value, get your hustle on
