Frequently Asked Questions
Who do you use for shipping?
For the majority of orders, we ship UPS. Depending a few various factors, your order may be shipped using a different carrier. Your local Post Office or regional carriers may provide final delivery.
We encourage you to sign up for UPS MyChoice. There are two UPS MyChoice account levels, one of which is free. From your UPS MyChoice account you can choose where, when, and how you receive your packages. Do you want UPS to leave your box in the third bush on the right, behind the red tulips? You can tell them this in your account preferences!
How long does it take my order to ship?
We try to ensure all orders are packed and shipped within 1-2 business days, pending merchandise availability. Orders placed on weekends or holidays will be processed on the next business day. Business days are Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). Note: We may get backlogged during sale events and holidays, which could delay your shipment.
Where will my order ship from?
Our distribution center is located in Southern California and all orders will ship from this location.
I didn't receive all of my items. Are they coming in a later shipment?
There is a small chance that the missing item(s) you ordered were out of stock when you order was being fulfilled. Please contact customer service at email@example.com for assistance with additional questions.
I entered the wrong shipping address. Can you update it?
Once an order has been placed we are unable to modify the address in any way.
Do you ship to APO addresses?
At this time, we unfortunately do not deliver to APO/FPO/DPO addresses.
Do you ship to PO Boxes?
At this time, we unfortunately do not deliver to PO Box addresses.
Returns & Exchanges
Please allow up to 30 business days for your exchange to be processed. If you receive defective or incorrect items, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-328-8488, prior to sending these items back.
New and unused merchandise may be returned with the original tags attached up to 60 days from the date of purchase for a refund or exchange. A credit will be issued to the original credit card for the item(s) amount, less shipping and handling. Products marked Final Sale are not eligible to be returned or exchanged.
The return form says I need to include my packing slip, but I can't find it.
Our packing slips are either in a plastic envelope on the outside of the box, or under the shipping label. If yours was under the shipping label and you cut it in half, please submit the part with your order number and item. If you have thrown away your packing list please print a copy of your order confirmation email and include that with your return.
I cut the hang tags off the garment, can I still return it?
If you have only removed the hang tags, then yes, you can still return the new and unused item. However, you will need to include the hangtags with your return so we can reattach them at the warehouse. Unfortunately, if you have also removed the sewn in white product care tags, we will be unable to accept the return.
I need to return something, but my credit card number has changed since I made my order, can I still get my refund?
If you received a new credit card number from the same issuing bank, it will not be a problem to refund your credit card. Just like all pending payment transactions carry forward onto your new card, so will your refunds.
However, if you closed the account with that issuing bank and opened a new credit card with a different bank, please contact us at email@example.com before sending back your return.
I received my return email confirmation, but I don't see my refund on my statement. Are you sure it went through?
Most banks take 3-6 business days for the refunded amount to reflect in your available balance. While 3-6 business days is standard, some banks can take much longer. If you use multiple cards for your online transactions, please be sure you are checking the correct account. If you used PayPal to checkout, your refund will go back to your PayPal account. You then have the option to use that amount for any future payment via PayPal or you may transfer it to your bank account.

Payment and Checkout Errors
I am getting an address error while checking out
All billing addresses must be in the US. The billing address you enter must match the address your bank has on file; we send this information to your bank for verification, and we cannot override their response if it does not match. If you feel you are entering your address correctly, please call the 1-800 number on the back of your card, ask for either the Fraud or Authorizations Department and have them verify what your address is on file. If you have more than one address on file (most common with PO Boxes and after moving to a new home) one of those addresses will likely need to be deleted from the bank’s system. Please use the exact address they provide for your billing address.
I see a charge on my credit card, but didn't get an order confirmation
Please email us at email@example.com and we can provide your order number for you.
