2.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will provide you with a refund for the product.

152 - 153 Sloane Street,
All returned products must be accompanied by a delivery note which is provided with the products when they are delivered. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the products within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
6.3 Returning faulty products. In accordance with the Consumer Rights Act 2015, you have a 30 day right to reject faulty products and receive a refund. Where you believe the products are faulty, please return them to us in accordance with clause 6.2. We will inspect the products and, if we confirm that they are faulty, we will refund the price of the products to you. You also have the right to request that we repair or replace the products where you have requested that we do so and where we consider that is a reasonable remedy (as opposed to refunding the price of the products). We will only be able to offer a repair service for products which are no more than 12 months old.
6.4 The cost of returns. We will pay the costs of returns for full priced orders within the UK or if the products are faulty or misdescribed as deemed by our team in correspondence with the customer. In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
6.5 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products excluding delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below. We may request proof of return from you to confirm the delivery costs you incurred. Where this is not provided you will be responsible for the cost of delivery.
6.6 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
6.6.1 We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
6.6.2 The maximum refund for delivery costs on faulty products will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
6.6.3 Where you are seeking to cancel a service (i.e. our tailoring of the products), we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full amount of the contract.
7. Our Rights To End The Contract
7.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
7.1.1 you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
7.1.2 you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products; or
7.1.3 you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you.
7.1.4 you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to supply the services.
7.1.5 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 7.1, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
8. Price And Payment
8.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 8.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order. The price of the products will be displayed in GBP. VAT will be automatically applied for order shipped within the UK. For products purchased in the rest of the world, the amount of VAT or equivalent sales tax will be displayed separately to the product price and are deductible at the checkout. You must also pay any import or export duties, tariffs or similar costs charged as a result of your order.
8.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT or sales tax changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT or sales tax that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT or sales tax takes effect.
8.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
8.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, Google Pay, ApplePay and Paypal. All payments will be processed in GBP.
9. Our Responsibility For Loss Or Damage Suffered By You
9.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
9.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your statutory rights in relation to the products
9.3 We will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice. This could include where we have provided information about how to use, store or care for a product.
9.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
9.5 Online payments. Whilst we take all appropriate and technological steps to ensure your payments are secure, we will not be responsible for any loss you suffer as a result of transacting online unless we have been negligent. As part of our routine security we may validate your name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. This may include providing personal data to a credit reference agency which may keep a record of that information, and by accepting these terms you agree to this identity verification taking place. This will not be a credit check and your credit rating will be unaffected.
10. How We May Use Your Personal Information
10.1 How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
10.1.1 to supply the products to you;
10.1.2 to process your payment for the products; and
10.1.3 if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us; and
11. Other Important Terms
11.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

11.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
11.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
11.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
11.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms and the relationship between us shall be governed by English law, subject to your local mandatory rights. For complaints that cannot be resolved otherwise, you may bring a claim against us arising from these terms in a court located either in England or in the jurisdiction where you live.
11.7 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
