Vietnam Insider
Hi, my name is Chris and I built this webpage. I have been working in the Vietnam Garment Industry since 2008. My expertise is advising fashion start-ups. I also introduce established brands to factories making shoes, socks, bags, hats etc. Vietnam is small and my network of factories is wide. Let's talk about growing your business by manufacturing in Vietnam.

This page is about Un Available. They are a vintage t-shirt printer in Vietnam that specializes in both knit and woven streetwear apparel. Read about their customers below.

I offer services like factory introductions, factory visits and quality control. Contact me to start producing your vintage t-shirt brand in Vietnam.
Un Available's boss always has a direct line of communication with the owners of the brands they produce for. Three brands that appreciate that close relationship are Palace, Saturdays and Munster. Un Available treats their customers' designs and production as if it was their own. Un Available knows the importance of intellectual property protection because they have their own brand called Marshall Artists. To facilitate the factory's job as a vintage t shirt printer in Ho Chi Minh City they choose the brands they work for carefully. Un Available delivers excellence as if they have as if they have the same skin in the game as their customers do.

Palace founder Lev Tanju planned for authenticity and needed a factory that would say yes to everything he wanted. When the ex-skater set up Palace in 2009 south of London, one thing was non-negotiable: the logo had to be supersized. He asked, “Can you make the logo as big as it will go on the back of the shirt, as far as the seam will allow?” Un Available said yes. Being a yes factory is just one attribute Un Available possesses as a vintage t shirt printer in Ho Chi Minh City. Lev Tanju went on to ask them, “Can you guarantee that none of my designs will be leaked.” Un Available said yes. Can you produce small runs of 250 each design? Un Available said yes. To learn more about Palace check out this great article written by the Guardian. https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2016/may/03/cult-label-palace-uk-skate-kids-hip-hop-royalty-brand-rihanna-jay-z-teens-dads-leve-tanju

Saturdays. Colin Tunstall, Morgan Collett and Josh Rosen all co-founded Saturdays back in 2009. If you can imagine a surf brand in New York City then you can begin to understand their universe. They run a coffee shop, design a full range of menswear apparel, and also curate a namesake magazine with no advertisements and rare interviews. They heard about Un Available, a vintage t shirt printer in Ho Chi Minh City, and trusted Un Available with their need for attention to detail and aesthetic quality. Un Available brings their brand to life with grace and casual vibes that embodies their brand identity. How could you not want to produce apparel for Saturdays? To learn more about Saturdays check out this interview by Hypebeast. https://hypebeast.com/2013/11/saturdays-surf-nycs-co-founders-talk-about-the-brand. Un Available does and they consider themselves lucky.

Another prized customer is Munster. Rich Brown, the founder, explains Munster the following way. Kids, kids, kids! They’re the future, but while they’re young and wild, they’re exactly that… wild! MunsterKids is a label dedicated to giving your groms the raddest styles out there while keeping up with their endless energy. It’s for the little rebels that run rings around you at home and will play all day and night if you let them. MunsterKids was started by a couple of new parents looking for cool, quality clothing for their own little wild man. They have grown organically and filled a gap in the market for surf, skate and street culture inspired apparel for children. Thanks to Un Available’s unwavering support and on-time quality production Munster is poised to continue it’s growth since the owners can focus on design, marketing and sales.

How to find your import duties from Vietnam to USA

Step 1 is to figure out what is the HS Code of your product. Step 2 is to look up your HS Code in the Harmonized tariff schedule. You will see the duty rate listed next to your HS Code. Done. Sounds easy right? Like putting socks on a rooster. The safest thing to do is hire a certified customs broker who classifies many products every day. The problem is, customs brokers will only do a classification for you if you are a lucrative client shipping containers on a regular basis. That's how they make their living. So what can you do? Sail out into the open ocean yourself, do your own classification, let me chart the way for you.

First thing you need to keep in mind is that when your goods get to the USA port, it's the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer that will either approve or disapprove the HS Code classification declared on the shipping documents. Their job is to make sure you pay the right import duty. If the CBP decides your classification is wrong then you risk delaying the delivery of your goods and being labeled as an offender which could delay future shipments. You will have to pay the remaining tax to get your goods released. If you are caught incorrectly classifying your product, your certified customs broker who made the classification for you, has their neck in the guillotine too. They can have their license revoked and be out of work if they are caught multiple times classifying products with low taxes. The broker can petition the decision to save their neck but they waste time petitioning and time is money - lost.

Here is what the classification hierarchy of round grain husked rice looks like.
