3. How Do I Return An Item?
We work hard at ensuring you derive utmost satisfaction from our products but in the unfortunate event where you have been sent wrong or faulty products, we will arrange a pick up on our tab. Please let us know within 24 hours of receiving the product.
Please note, we do NOT accept returns or exchanges for wrong size selection, we have a size guide detailed on the site to aid with selecting the right size, kindly check this as 99.9% of the time, the item will fit great if the closest size is selected. We also offer custom sizing at a fee for shoppers in between sizes. However, if you want to return an item for other reasons , we will exchange any product that you are not satisfied with if we are contacted within 24 hours and returned in unused condition (unworn, unwashed, and with the tags still attached). If assessed and the product does not meet up to our return requirement, the product may be returned back to the sender and money not refunded. Please kindly check the size guide and in some product cases, length descriptions to enable you purchase the right size as we will not refund cash if returning for these reasons but will keep the value as store credit to be used at anytime.
Cash Refunds will only be granted if the item is not received at the stipulated time or as a result of any fault of ours.
For office pickup orders, we advise that you pick up your order within 24-48 hours to be liable for an exchange or store credit refund. We can keep items for pick up in our warehouse indefinitely but the return window of 24-48 hours still applies.
Shipping Charges for Returns are same as the delivery charge for that area (N850, N1200, N1500, N2500 for Lagos Island, Mainland, Lagos SubUrbs/Outskirts and other states respectively) when contacted within the stipulated time frame and condition as the couriers regard this as a new delivery trip.
