Frequently Asked Questions

Effective 10/15/2021 - New Return Policy

As a corporate apparel retailer it's important we prioritize our business customers who purchase in bulk. For that reason our products are priced accordingly (heavily discounted). Due to COVID we have seen an increase in individual customers who wish to take advantage of our selection and prices. While we welcome your business, we must make sure this doesn't interfere with our core business, which are our business customers.

To keep our prices competitive for our core customers we must institute new policies designed to minimize the return of orders being placed by the at-home buyer. We understand this policy is more restrictive, its also a policy that will have limited to no impact on our core customer base. We also understand this policy may not fit the needs of each and every at-home buyer and appreciate that we may not be the right fit for some individuals. We encourage everyone to evaluate this policy as prior to purchase as part of their buying decision. We appreciate your understanding.

Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. As a corporate apparel retailer, the majority of our customers purchase in bulk. For that reason our products are priced accordingly (heavily discounted). This differs from a traditional retailer who further marks up their products to allow for "free" returns.
Restock Fee

A 20% restock fee is charged on returned orders which shipped with complimentary shipping and bulk/volume purchases. If unsure about a particular style we would recommend ordering a single item to check for size/color/quality/fit to avoid returns of multiple unwanted items.  This restock fee primarily covers the cost UPS charged us to ship your initial purchase but is also used to offset credit card fees, packaging costs, labor costs, return processing, and additional costs associated with your unwanted order.
