Shipping - FAQ
Shipping + Courier
If your order is confirmed and paid for before 12pm Monday to Friday, we will aim to ship the same day. Orders received after 12pm will be shipped the next business day. Orders received on the weekend will be shipped on Monday. All orders to a non-rural address can expect delivery in one to two days after receiving shipping confirmation. This is not guaranteed however, and we do encourage you to contact us if your order is required in a short time frame. Over the Christmas period please allow a few extra days on top of this for delivery.
Our preferred courier service is Courier Post. All deliveries must be signed for and are not able to be delivered to PO Boxes. Please bear this in mind when supplying your shipping address. When your order is shipped you will receive a confirmation email with a link to tracking details. It can take some time for your order to enter their system so if it doesn't show up straight away, please check back later.

CLICK + COLLECT
What is Click & Collect?
Hate missing couriers or live locally? Click & Collect is our exciting in store pick up service; shop online, but instead of having it delivered to your home or work address (and missing a courier) you can choose to pick it up.
To use it, select 'collect in store' at check-out when placing an online order.
Can I pick it up immediately?
Your order should be ready to collect the same day, if ordered before 12pm.

Do I need to print anything out?
We just need to see your Order Confirmation email – you can save it to your phone and show us that way, or print it out!
Can I get someone else to pick it up?
Yes! As long as they can show us the Order Confirmation email when they collect it.

If you are unsure of a garments care label, always ‘cold hand wash’ to avoid any damage in the garments fabric. For garments that specify dry-clean only, we recommend the use of a specialty dry cleaner. If an item is made from viscose, we recommend this to be a cold hand wash or spot clean if possible. If your garment is damaged because it was washed incorrectly, we are unable to accept this back as a return.
WEAR AND TEAR
If you damage a garment or product after wearing it e.g a button falls off or the zip breaks because of ‘wear and tear‘ we cannot accept these garments or product back for a return or exchange.
