Frequently Asked Questions

UK orders usually arrive in the next 1-3 days depending on the postage you select. Overseas orders take 3-20 days depending on location.

Orders placed before 1pm on a week day are sent out the same day. We offer a range of delivery options including guaranteed next day. Occasionally items do get lost in the post we can re-send or refund your order 10 working days after it was sent (20 days for international items) as this is when the Royal Mail class class it as lost and allow us to claim for the loss.

We want you to be happy with your purchase, if it’s not what you wanted you are welcome to return it for a refund or exchange within 30 days but please return items in the same condition you received them.

If you return your entire order within 14 days of receiving it, we will refund the full amount debited from your card. Postage will not be refunded if only part of the order is returned or after 14 days. Please enclose either your original invoice or a copy of it.

If you have changed your mind about colour or size or just want to exchange for something else please enclose your order number and what you would like to swap for.

Unless the item is faulty you are responsible for the postage to return items to us and we’d always recommend getting a proof of postage.
