We shall evaluate the condition of the product by considering if your handling goes beyond that which might reasonably be allowed in a shop and the general wear of the product.

For ‘Special Orders’  those being products ‘NOT’ a stock item or being a style outside our selected range; whereby you have stipulated size, colour etc. In such a case we reserve the right to refusal of a return other than should the item be deemed faulty.
