Aerostich availability in Europe?

I wanted to get an Aerostich Darien setup while I was in the USA but it seems that it can't be ready before I leave (6 week lead time, gaaa!). From talking to Aerostich it seems that they don't have any distribution or dealers in Europe. You can just order the gear as normal and then they will ship it to you but this adds in a hefty shipping expense and import taxes.

So:

(1) Is there a more efficient way to get Aerostich gear in Europe?

(2) What's the European available equivalent (uber fabulous everyone loves it, etc...) of Aerostich gear?

If it's a fabric suit you are after then you cannot go wrong with the Hein Gericke Master V

Utterly waterproof in all day torrential rain it is a superb bit of kit.

I have a Rukka outlast that is made in the EU. If the rain is heavy you will need a rain suit. It works in hot if you don't stand still and if its damp you can fast enough to dry it out
