Terms & Conditions of Purchase:

Our responsibility to you as a client is to provide for a first fitting:  

● The specified cloth and trim options.  

● The specified style options. 

● The measurements taken from you, with a tolerance built in for fit (as agreed at  consultation).  

● Delivery on time in accordance with your chosen level of service.  

Our responsibility after your first fitting is to:  

● Ensure that any adjustments are carried out as agreed.  

● Ensure that the garment quality is not compromised by alterations.  

We reserve the right to refuse an alteration if we feel it will compromise any of the above. In the  event of an alteration refusal, we will update your pattern accordingly ahead of your next order.  

As the client, you understand the following:  

● Standard delivery time is up to 8 weeks.  

● Express delivery time is up to 5 weeks.  

● Super Express delivery time is up to 4 weeks.  

● Alterations will be no less than 2 weeks from your fitting date.  

● Express alteration packages can be purchased upon request at a cost of £25 per express  alteration. In turn, this means alterations will be ready in under 2 weeks (dates to be  confirmed as per each individual scenario).  

● If for any reason we are unable to alter your garments, we will remake as necessary to  ensure that the order is fulfilled and a superior fit is achieved. Remakes are placed on the  same service as your original order. You can upgrade your service to express at any point  throughout the process for the appointed fee. When you place an order for more than one  garment of the same type (e.g. shirt packages or 2x business suits), we will make one  item on the order first. When you are happy with the final pattern measurements for this  order, your remaining items will be placed into production. This policy is strict. If you  would like all garments to be made at the same time, this has a serious effect on our cost  of order. A surcharge of £149 per additional suit will apply, and £49 per additional shirt.  

● As this is a bespoke product, commissioned by you, no refund is possible once cutting  begins. This does not affect your statutory rights.
