Store Policy

Shipping Policy

Every product we offer is made by hand in our Philadelphia factory.
To prevent waste, we do not keep an inventory and everything is made-to-order, except for our Alpha Direct garments.  These are made beforehand and have a quicker turnaround time when ordered. 
We try make and ship each order within the time frame noted on the banner on the front page of our website.  Please allow some extra lead time for production when placing large orders.  

Build time is different than shipping time.  Build time refers to the length of time requires to prep, print, press, sew, tape, finish, pack and ship your order.  
Shipping time refers to the length of time the package will be in the mail en route to you. 

You will receive a shipping confirmation email from us with a tracking number once your order has shipped.  You will not receive any other email regarding the production of you order except for the initial order confirmation email.  Rest assured, your order is in production the moment the payment clears and the order appears in Shipstation.  

We have little control over mail delays caused by the post office, inclement weather, incorrect address entry at checkout, and customs.  We are unable to reroute, pause, or edit details on a package once it is handed off to the Post Office.  

We are not responsible for misdelivered/stolen mail.  Please ensure your shipping address is entered in English or Romanji at checkout.  We cannot print shipping labels in other languages and Shipstation will attempt to translate your address, potentially leading to inaccuracies.  

If you are using PayPal or ShopPay or another third party express checkout app, please ensure your native language is set to English.

We are not responsible for misdelivered/returned mail due to the use of third party shipping companies.  Please use reputable vendors if you decide to go this route.

If your order is returned to us due to undeliverable address or unclaimed mail, we will generally try to reach out to you and request a different delivery address to try for the second shipment back to you.
