Apparently, it's only traceable to certain countries.

Spain is on the list but not Italy.

Edit: The list is for countries that you can do signature confirmation to.

Italy success story, the Maiden Mexico tee made it, as well as about 5 others to this one particular address.

I sent another Maiden Mexico to another part of Italy....crossing fingers again.

Could the problem be resolved? Or is it just certain locations?

I had a ton of problems with Italy, things never got there, they allways got lost, or stolen. Recently the last 4 to 5 items have arrived no problem.

Alright guys. I have a jacket which may go to Italy this week. It's leather and clothing, both of which are restricted for import into Italy. What's the best way to declare it for customs?

According to USPS all leather goods and clothing are restricted. However, some Italians online have had said that the problem is with USPS and not Italian customs. There seem to be alot of conflicting accounts.

So maybe that's why all these shirts vanished over the years? they get confiscated?

Well, if they get confiscated you're supposed to get a letter from Italian customs.

I send everything xpresspost anyway, so I guess we'll see. I've added Italy to the "shipping exclusions" and an American has outbid the Italian, so I'm crossing my fingers.
