Product Information

Can I order items that are 'Out of Stock'?

We are unable to take orders for items that are currently out of stock as we cannot guarantee when they will next be available for dispatch.

How do I know if an item is in stock?

If a product has an 'Add To Bag’ button next to it, this means that it is in stock and available for dispatch. On rare occasions we may discover that an item is out of stock after you have placed your order. If this happens, we will supply the remainder of the order and either process a refund for the item that is unavailable (including any related shipping costs), or we will contact you to offer an alternative item or size.

My payment won't go through, why is this?
