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.
We reserve the right to accept, reject or cancel any order, or part of an order, at anytime during the process. If we reject or cancel an order, we will refund any money you have paid in relation to the rejected part of the order, less any actual and reasonable costs we may have incurred on your behalf in trying to fill the order.

REFUNDS & COMPLAINTS
We do not offer refunds but will happily exchange or credit items provided you make contact with us immediately after receipt of your order, and we will advise you of the process to follow for exchange. If you think any goods are unsatisfactory/faulty, a written explanation needs to be emailed to us immediately after you receive your order, before we can consider a refund. Requests for refunds on this basis will be looked at on a case by case basis and any refund is totally at our discretion. There are no refunds at all on cut fabric or made to order/measure items, if you disagree with this please do not place an order.
Any complaints about our products should be sent to us in writing. We will look into your complaint carefully and will notify you of the outcome.
