That's the place I've been corresponding with by email. Immediate and clear answers to every question I've asked, including some very specific details. Certain items weren't listed on the site, but when asked about it, the site proprietor emailed back to say that updates were still pending due to Chinese New Year holidays, but he'd update. They were, within hours.I ran across this site which appears to accept PayPal, and is showing the D-1 in-stock for $669.00 USD. I have not personally purchased anything from there, but the site 'looks' legit IMO, and perhaps is worth checking into further:
EDIT: The brand 'Non Stock' is offered there also with a large selection...
Even with a concession on price, my workings bring it out at somewhere in the £600-£650 area.I agree , with import duty and vat it will probably end up costing more than a Aero D-1. And you will have difficulty sending it back if it doesn’t fit.
I've got an Eastman D-1, which I bought new from them in the days when they cost a mere £649.99, which is £300 less than today.It does look nice, both in the pics above and on their website. Something must have gone past me though, is Spanish sheepskin something special? When I think of Spain I must admit sheep and sheepskin is not what comes to mind?
I think when all’s said and done if you want a D-1, and you’re in the UK or EU go Aero. Lovely jacket and a known supplier and parcel farce and hmrc are out of the picture!
