Returns & Exchanges

Generally, returned online purchases are eligible only for store credit or exchange rather than a refund. To find out if a purchase is eligible for return/ exchange, please contact customer care at within five (5) business days of delivery. Final Sale items are not eligible for store credit, refund or exchange.  

Returns & Exchanges must meet the following criteria:

Requests made after five (5) business days of delivery will be denied.  All approved returns/ exchanges must be shipped back within 3 business days.  

Returns/ exchanges that do not arrive in "new" or "unworn" condition may be subject to a re-stocking fee determined by us depending on the condition of item.  Examples of situations that may warrant a re-stocking fee are items that require steaming due to signs of wear (beyond normal wear from trying on) or have abnormal amounts of lint or hair on them.  Items will be disqualified from return/ exchange if they are scented with perfumes/ cologne, have visible stains or wear, have been laundered/ dry cleaned, etc.  If an item is deemed ineligible for return/ exchange, the customer will be billed for return shipping.

Exchanges may be available while supplies last. Please contact us before returning any item to determine if we can process an exchange. Exchanges must meet the same criteria as returns, listed above.
