    Thanks so much for all your answers everyone! Rani... I'm new to all this... what do you mean by 'restricted categories? Do you mean a tax implication? All of this is investigations for personal use not for retail if it makes any difference. Cheers, Natalie

    Hi- My Mum has had clothes ordered from Victoria Secret online delieverd to HK and as far as I know she never paid any taxes on it. It was for her personal use, not retail.

    Clothing is under a quota system and most manufacturers do not allow exports back to HK. You'll find most online US retailers, Gap, Old Navy, Gymboree do not ship to HK, even if its for personal use.

    i order regularly (ok maybe 2-3x/yr) from LLBean and Lands End. Never had any problems. I've also ordered mat.clothes from and motherwear nursing; again no problems. I do remember years ago having a "sticker" on one of my shipments asking me to "claim with custums" (or something similar). I just phoned them, argued everythign was purely for personal use and never heard back from them. some US companies will ship to HK, but will charge you an "extra handling fee" for international shipment OR you have to phone them directy for (credit card / mailing address) approval.
