I've got a buddy who lives overseas and we're thinking about starting a small custom clothing business. Basically I'd send orders, his tailor would make the clothes, then he'd ship back to me or direct to the customer. We're not planning to get rich by any means (there's a company out there that does this already and they're pretty big) but at least want to get some small business experience and hopefully run something that at least pays for itself but hopefully turn at least some profit.


Anyone have experience with this? I work a bit with importing merchandise but on a very large scale, I don't know where to begin with a smaller-scale operation and import tarriffs though...

if it is small scale just send the items postal from his end. You probably will not even see any import duties. I have ordered a number of things from Aliexpress and they normally just come shipped regular mail.
