The cost of returns policy

We are very conscious of both the impact a cycle of purchasing and returning is having on our environment and crucially upon the price point which is chargeable for an item so as to continue to provide good value for money.  For us to achieve our goal of being sustainable in both these regards, we intend to be central to influencing this positive change.  To enable customers to make a more informed decision when choosing our products, we have introduced several new tools such as ‘Size Guide’ and ‘Style Fit Tips’ as part of our product information sections.

We will however not pay for any return charge, however incurred by you.

Returning via post:

It is your responsibility to retain all return documentation and to also ensure that the item(s) posted back to us can be tracked and traced.

Should you have used a discount code with a threshold value and the returned items make the remaining order value fall below this threshold; the amount refunded will be minus the value of the discount code.  Please note we do not exchange discount codes so if you return an order where a code has been used, you have now used your code and another will not be issued.
