Ordering Information & Terms and Conditions of Sale
AVAILABILITY, ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF ORDER
Availability All items are offered subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are not available or we are unable to supply within any time scales you have provided to us.
Acknowledgment and acceptance of your order Upon placing an order you will receive an automated email setting out the details of the order and allocating an order number. We will email you again, as soon as possible, to confirm acceptance of the order, availability and the expected dispatch date.
What size should I order? Most Tom Sawyer waistcoats are individually made to order and our aim is to supply waistcoats that fit and provided that the correct size is ordered, or accurate measurements are supplied, we should get it right first time.
Prior to ordering, please check our measurement charts. For waistcoat orders, it is best if you supply your chest measurement and waist measurement (taken around the widest part of the stomach), as well as your full height. These measurements can be in inches or centimetres and added to the special instructions box at checkout.
For Skopes brand jackets, waistcoats and trousers from our Men’s suits department, and for shirts, please see the size guide in the product description for the relevant item.
Colour Variations/Fabric Samples Where time limits allow, it is our policy to send fabric swatches for made to order waistcoats and neckwear once ordered to give you the opportunity to see and approve the actual colour and fabric prior to manufacture of the goods. We are also happy to send out fabric swatches free of charge if you wish to see the actual colours and fabrics prior to placing an order.
Please be aware that due to variations in individual monitor settings, there may be a slight difference in shade between the photographs on our website and the actual fabric colours, which is beyond our control. Therefore we cannot accept the return of a made to order item on the basis that the colour of the item did not exactly match your monitor’s display of the colour shown on the website.
When an order is placed by you online, your credit or debit card, or Paypal account is debited to the full value of the order in pounds sterling. International credit card providers or banks determine the exchange rate you are charged and may add additional processing or administration charge in relation to such transactions. The conversion rate shown on our website may vary from that applied by your Bank or card provider.
VAT is payable on all goods delivered to addresses within the United Kingdom and all E.U Countries unless the goods are Zero Rated or otherwise exempt. We are required to charge VAT on Boy’s waistcoats made to fit body measurements larger than those shown on the measurement charts for our size 14 waistcoats (i.e. 32” chest, 5’ 3” height).
