How does VAT work when it comes to an EU-based corporate eBay seller (i.e. not an individual)?

Is there any legal obligation to deduct VAT from non-EU purchasers or is it just an incentive thing? Can't remember where I read it but I recall someone having trouble with getting VAT deducted from an EU -> non-EU order and I wasn't sure what the standard is.

I don't think there's a legal obligation to deduct VAT. Anecdotal evidence: I placed an order from a store in the UK that didn't deduct VAT

Summer is here (kinda) and i need some sunglasses, can i get some recommendations for around £100? I don't know anything about sizing or how glasses should sit on your face.

glasses sizing comes in 3 numbers and it'll look kinda like 53-18-135

the first number is the size of the lens itself, the second is the length of the bridge, and the third is the length of the arm or temple. i'd say to try on some glasses to find out what your ideal size is and then find a style that suits your face. i have a rounder face so rounder lenses look awkward on me

re: fit, your eye should be in the center of the lens, the top of the frame close to (and under) your eyebrow. the frame shouldn't be wider than your face. the nose pad should fit on your nose (obv). when you move your head your glasses must stay in place. that's about it i think. finding a good optometrist makes everything easier tho

Only sometimes. I own(ed) two of them. Assuming they're not oversized, they're a bit long, but barely. I blame quality control though because my grey taupe pretty much hit the middle or top of my belt line. The black one (I lost it... don't know how) could go further, but it wouldn't drape like that, it'd rather bunch up around my belt line than actually be long.

Why don't European (or even Japanese really) designers make odd sized pants? I'm pretty solidly at a size 31 waist, which makes 46 too tight and 48 too loose on me (it stays on, I just have to adjust every so often, and it makes the other measurements seem a bit big on me otherwise too).

I mean I could lose some weight and drop down, but it's just a bit annoying nobody makes size 31.

Any info on brand "Orden" ? I've seen it posted a couple times in SuFu and SZ, but I can't get any info online.

Where can I get black leather espadrilles? Lika Mimika looks possibly OK (don't know if they do all black) but it seems unisex at best and a bit over my budget (since it's 120 eur). I don't want to spend more than 100 usd or so I think. Espadrillestore had/has black ones in their European store but they don't mention quality and it's not available in the USA store for some reason.

What's the general opinion on Margiela aids t-shirts? There's one for £20 in my size but it's the last season metallic paint one and I'm not sure how I feel about that

They're nothing special. Buy them if you like the print (why not) or if you want to collect them from the seasons or whatever. Don't buy them because they're cheap and have the brand-name.

I am thinking about buying another pair of Epaulet chinos. I like my current pair but I realised I have no idea what else is out there.

So: well-made chinos for $150, slim but not skinny. What should I be looking at? Available from Europe would be a big plus.

jp streetwear has no retail presence in NYC. I recommend dsm, oc, chcm, vfiles. some greatest soho hits: jil sander, prada, nsw, acne, slp, IF soho for yohji/soloist/ann/viridi anne etc. nepenthes in garment district is a gem, but there's shit else to do in that part of town.
