Apart from the fact that they are an English company, you are shopping from their website priced in £. The warehouse might be in Italy but that is not a problem..

Mr.Porter ships from Italy most of the time due to stock constraints in the UK and there is never a surcharge.

I ordered stuff from Prada UK, again it was sent from Italy with no additional surcharge. Hope this helps !

Anyone had decent experience with Etsy ? Buying something from Europe. Are all duties / taxes included in the final price ?

Tax should be sorted by Etsy but there may be duties if it's over £135 / €150.

My wife has sold sub-£135 items to the EU since Brexit and everything's been fine with that, the buyers didn't have to pay anything.

Thanks Andy. It’s above £135. Frustratingly After buying I’d noticed it was significantly cheaper on the sellers own website and wondered if that’s due to Etsy seller fees or duties are automatically added I guess we’ll see !
