Did the US$16.50 for shipping include both tee-shirts?

Mine was US$12.50, also to Melbourne, only for one shirt though.

After usurious Credit Card currency conversion, it actually works out to nearly A$50 for one shirt.

Them's the breaks...

That'll teach me to be cheap and only order 1.

OSG Tees - they're even better in bulk!

Unfortunately international shipping has gotten rather expensive. The cheapest I can send even a 1 ounce package overseas is nearly $9 now. It was less than $2 as little as a couple years ago. :squint:

it really has gone up so much...the other day having a pedal shipped via priority USPS (that gives a tracking number throughout the "journey"), was like $60 :wtf:

It has actually stopped me on my tracks when it comes to buying stuff in general, unless I really, really want something. Like an OSG t-shirt! :)

You don't need priority for tracking. This is kinda the secret they don't want you to know but the customs form number on any package going overseas will allow basic tracking information at least and should provide reasonable details like departure, when its in customs, when its hit the local office etc.

I was thinking about buying 2 but then the dillema would start that it's over the tax free amount and I guess you know what that means :fp:

Good to hear, Jay! I've still got a few days to decide, poor students life :squint:

reason I now buy 2 t shirts if I love the design.... is because ...
(a) you loose the first one
(b) gets shrunk by the Hilton hotel in Seoul in their 4000 degree washing machines even though you ticked "dry clean"
(c) it gets torn while doing something stupid like [insert your stupid activity here]
(d) it just wears out and you wished you'd bought a second at the time
relaxing alternative to doing actual work ...
