Frequently Asked Questions

Hassle-Free Returns

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return the order for a full refund within 30 days from receipt. We accept returns in new condition with original manufacturer tags. Returned items that have been worn or used cannot be accepted. 

We do not accept returns of non-stock items. If the item(s) is damaged or defective, please contact us to facilitate an exchange or return of the affected item(s).  

Non-stock items are defined as a product that is not housed in our warehouse at the time of order. 

Let our customer service team know if you need to return or exchange a purchase and they will be happy to facilitate. 

What if return is beyond the 30-day window? What about during the holidays?

The holidays can be a hectic time — we get it! We have an extended return policy for purchases made in October, November and December.

Please contact our customer service team if you wish to return a purchase past the standard 30-day return window. We accept most returns in new condition with original manufacturer tags attached.

What if my package is missing or delayed in transit?

Please contact our customer service team as soon as you notice an issue with your shipment.
