How do I book a return?
1. Ensure return conditions are met
Before booking your return online, check that your item meets our returns conditions below. Please note: Purchases made in store cannot be returned online.
- Item(s) were purchased within the last 30 days and proof of purchase can be provided
- Item(s) must be unworn, unwashed, or otherwise undamaged with original tags attached
- Item(s) are in original packaging or shoebox in their original condition
If you believe your item may be faulty, please view this article.
2. Package your return
Place the return into a satchel or box so that the product arrives protected and undamaged.
Do not use the shoebox as a postage box. If the shoebox is taped, damaged or has postal stickers attached, we cannot accept your return.
3. Book your return
Once packaged safely, click HERE to book your return. Follow the prompts to pay for and print a returns shipping label. Then attach the label to your parcel and drop it off at your nearest Post Office.
- Entering your order number: Do not include the # or any other symbols.
- Split orders: If your order was split, then you would have received two order numbers (ending with _1 & _2). They must be returned separately in the portal as they're recognised as unique order numbers.
- Don't have a printer at home? Your return label includes a QR code which can be scanned at the Post Office and a label printed for you.
Please allow time for your return to reach our warehouse. Once received, we'll process the return within 2-3 business days and notify you via email regarding your refund. Refunds will be automatically issued via your original payment method. Please allow 2-5 business days for funds to reflect in your account.
