Returning items from outside the EU?
When returning items from outside the EU please be sure to include 'Returns Department' prominently at the top of the address and declare the goods as returns to the couriers/postal service. This will prevent your return being delayed by UK customs, allowing us to process it far more quickly If you don't do this then UK Customs will hold the parcel for processing. This can take up to 28 days to complete, and will lead to an invoice for VAT plus handling (roughly 20% of the returns value) which we will pass on to you and will require payment before the parcel will be released to us. This is a non-refundable charge.
How long will it take to process my return?
We receive UK and international returns daily (Monday to Friday). We aim to apply all refunds and despatch exchange items within 48 hours of the day they are received, although it can take longer during busy periods such as Christmas and Sales.What if my order wasn't correct?
Every so often mistakes do happen, but we do our best to fix them and correct any issues you may have. If you have noticed that we have made a mistake with your order, please contact us at email@example.com and we will look into it. Please include your order number at all times when e-mailing customer services. Afield takes great care with its product photography to make sure that we are providing you with pictures that accurately and fairly represent the products we sell. However, due to inconsistencies in the manufacturing of some products, and inconsistencies in how different computer screens reproduce colours, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that the product you receive will look exactly the same as you see on your computer screen.What if the item is faulty?
Faulty items are dealt with slightly differently. If you think the item you have received is faulty in any way, please get in touch with us firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know how to proceed from there. Can I take my return to the Thread Menswear in Brighton?
