All orders are subject to the availability of the products you want to buy.  There may very rare times when we have run out of products before we have had time to update the website.  In that case, we will contact you promptly to discuss your order.  Products with lead times will have the estimated time for delivery in the products description.

Please note that if you are ordering made-to-order or other tailored garments together with products available in our stock, all goods are dispatched together; so if there is a delay in any of the made-to-order items, the whole order will be delayed. You may prefer to split your order, so in-stock products are dispatched straight away, while you wait for your made-to-measure items to arrive. However, splitting an order may require an additional freight cost to you.
