What sizes are the t-shirts, hooded-tops, etc?

On each garment item page, just below the "Add To Basket" button, there is a link titled "Size Details & Garment Information". Clicking on it will bring up a pop-up window giving chest sizes/dimensions and materials information for all the sizes of the product you are looking at as well as information on the materials used and weights.

It says that your medium women's t-shirts are a size 10 and XXL are a size 16; that can't be right???

We entirely agree with you! In our defence you would not believe how hard it is to get wholesale fitted women's t-shirts that are a) large enough b) good enough quality and c) at a reasonable enough price to do larger size women's t-shirts. Our wholesaler's own sizing guide says that S is 8-10, M is 12-14, L is 16, XL is 18 and XXL but in our experience those women's sizes are at least one and maybe even two dress sizes out. When we used the above dress sizes on our size guide a huge proportion of the women's t-shirts that we sent out were returned for exchanges for larger sizes!

How long will my t-shirts take to arrive?

Please allow a maximum of 28 days for delivery. However, in virtually all cases orders will arrive much sooner than this.
We aim to dispatch all t-shirts within seven to ten working days of receiving your order, although unforeseen circumstances, such as items being out of stock at the supplier, can occasionally delay dispatch.
Please note that when ordering by post it can take several days for your order to reach us, and then several more days for payment to clear.
At busy times of year, especially Christmas, orders will take longer than usual to be sent.

My Credit/Debit Card was declined - why?

For security reasons all our credit and debit card processing is done by WorldPay - a specialist company that handles thousands of such transactions every day. Therefore, we never actually see your details - all we get is confirmation when your order has been successful.
If your card is declined and you are not sure why then you can contact WorldPay on shopper@worldpay.com detailing the message you got and they should be able to explain the problem.

I want a shirt in a size other then those listed - is this possible?

Yes. We find that the sizes that we stock (small, medium, large, extra-large, XXL and 3XL for men, S-XL for women, plus ages 1-12 for kids) are by far the most commonly requested ones, but if you want a larger or smaller size this is usually no problem. We will usually be able to source you a shirt in any size, but we cannot guarantee all sizes being available in all colours. It is therefore important that you email us before placing your order and we will advise you whether your request will be possible.
Please note that as we do not always stock these other sizes you should allow a few additional days for delivery.

I want a shirt in a colour other then those listed - is this possible?

If you do have a special request we'll do everything that we can to fulfil it for you so please email us to arrange it.
Please note that as we do not stock all colours of t-shirt some of these one-off orders will take a bit longer than usual to deliver.

Can I submit my own designs?

If you have an idea for a design which you think that we should produce, or if you have a special "one off" request we will do everything that we can to do it. Please feel free to email us to discuss designs.

How do I keep up-to-date with new designs?

We have set-up a mailing list in order to keep people up-to-date with new designs and products. Simply enter your email address on this page and we will send you mails whenever we bring new stuff out.
We will not disclose your email address to anyone else and you can unsubscribe from the list at any time.

Can I visit your storefront/telephone you?

In order to keep costs down (such as not having to man a telephone line or maintain a storefront) we operate entirely on-line and via mail order. You can contact us via the addresses on this page.
