PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Company tries to be as accurate as possible in the representation of information on the website and in our stores. However, the Company does not warrant that the product description or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.
Our customization software is a computer render of the actual fabric. Colours and patterns may appear different based on the screen resolutions being used. The final garment may differ slightly from that of the image being displayed.

MEASUREMENTS
Every fabric has a unique weight, feel, and fall, hence measurements may appear to be different. There may be slight variances in fit based on fabrics. For all made-to-measure garments, all measurements provided are final garment measurements and will be produced within a general 0.5" tolerance of those measurements. All ready-to-wear garments are made in standard sizes; you can choose whichever size you like.
We have a single repository for measurements for a customer's garment. The most recent version of the measurements will be referred to as the base measurement for the customer profile.

  • Your base measurements stay linked to your profile.
  • Any updates done from the profile page will update the base measurement and will apply to open orders (not in production).
  • Changes made while creating/editing an order will update the base measurement and link the base with open orders.
  • Changes made while creating/editing alterations will update the base measurement, open orders (not in production), and other open alterations.
  • Once your order/alteration goes into production, the measurements are frozen for the particular order. Any measurement changes from the profile or other orders won't be applied to this order.
  • If your account is used by a family member/ relative or acquaintance and their measurements are stored on the system, then the Company will alter the same if possible, at no cost to the customer. No refunds or cancellations of these orders will be accepted.
