Placing an order

We are not obligated to accept your order and reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order once it has been placed. This may be done, for example, if:

  •        your payment is not authorised or has been marked as fraudulent, or potentially fraudulent, by the payment system;
  •        payment has been made using a card not issued in a country we dispatch to, or not where the billing address is;
  •        there is an error on the website regarding the price or description of a product; or
  •        if you have requested a bespoke design and it is not possible for any reason to carry out that design.

 

By placing an order with us you are confirming that any information you have given is true and accurate and that you are authorised to use the card on which payment was made.

We are not liable for any breach of agreement, for delay or failure to perform if the delay or failure is due to acts of God, civil commotion, riots, floods, drought, fire, legislation or other cause beyond our reasonable control. This does not affect your statutory rights.

 

Our products

All products are subject to availability, which is subject to change. Images of products shown on the Website, and colours shown on screen, are reproduced as accurately as electronic processes allow, but may not always represent the exact image or colour of the final product.

We reserve the right to amend the details and specifications of our products as necessary, or to conform with any changes in UK or EU requirements.

We try to ensure that information regarding products on our website is as accurate as possible. However, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies or errors.

 

Prices

All prices are in pounds sterling and include VAT at the prevailing rate. 

The prices shown on our Website for our goods includes delivery worldwide, by Royal Mail, Fedex or DHL or by standard postal services.

Prices are subject to change. However, in the event of a change in prices, these will not affect any order which has been placed and agreed.

 

Customer's obligations

To enable us to produce a high quality garment, you agree to co-operate with us by providing us with your exact measurements and dimensions. We provide instructions on the Website describing how to measure yourself correctly. You should follow the guidance given by us as you will be responsible for the sizing information you provide to us. If the information relating to the requested size of the garment proves to be erroneous or if you change your mind or want to alter the size of the garment to a different size after placing the order, we will inform you of the cost of replacing or making the alterations necessary to meet the new sizing and, if you want us to make such changes, you will be required to pay those new costs.

If you send us images or details of any design or style you would like us to prepare for you, you warrant that you have all necessary rights, licences and permissions to use such designs or styles and you agree to indemnify The Drop against any costs, claims and expenses which may result from us creating any garment based on such designs.

The customer must arrange for receipt of the garment within a reasonable time. A reasonable time is deemed to be within two months of the date of the garment being ready for receipt. If The Drop agree to allow the customer to collect the garment outside those reasonable time limits, the customer may be required to pay for any additional alteration costs that result from a change in the dimensions of the customer during the period after the order was placed.

 

Alterations and our Perfect Fit Guarantee

The Drop goes to great lengths to ensure your suit fits you perfectly. With our three-step process of measurements, photos and a manual check of measurements by one of our stylists, we are confident the fit will be spot-on.

In the unlikely event that there is anything that needs changing, we will reimburse up to £35/$50 of alterations.

If, after alterations, you are still not satisfied, we will remake your suit for you. 

If you require any additional alterations which are not covered by our Perfect Fit Guarantee or our Returns Policy, and which are not due to the fault of The Drop, we will charge these to you at our standard rates for alterations. We cannot be liable for the any loss or cancellation of order due to a change in the size or dimensions of a customer after the order was placed.

 

Changes to your order

If you require any changes to your order, these should be made within 24 hours of placing the order. However, do note that even if you do submit a change within 24 hours of placing the order, this does not guarantee that a change can be made. We will, where possible, endeavour to make changes. All changes to an order, once the order has been processed and where a change remains possible, will carry a £20 change fee per change which is in addition to any further charges associated with that change, be it changes to colours, fabrics, styles, sizes or any other aspect.

Where the customer requests a change to an existing order and we are not able to fulfil that change for any reason, this shall not be deemed grounds which allow the customer to cancel and we will proceed with the original order.

If there is a dispute between the customer and The Drop over the styling of the order, the record on The Drop's ordering system shall be taken as the correct and final order.

 

Delivery

Turnaround and dispatch of orders may vary from time to time depending on current order volumes, work schedules, fabric availability or a particular characteristic of the order placed. We aim to meet our standard turnaround time of 2-4 weeks.

Delivery will be made to the address you have provided to us. It is your responsibility to ensure that there is an adult available at the address to sign for and receive the garments.

Delivery times will be notified to you. If for any reason we are unable to make that delivery time, we will notify you as soon as possible. However, we will not be liable for any delay in delivery, due in whole or in part to any reason beyond our control.

The customer is obligated to ensure that the delivery address supplied to The Drop is correct. If for any reason there is no one available at the delivery address, or no one answers the door when our delivery person arrives, we may leave the goods outside your premises or with a neighbour (if there is someone available). However, in such circumstances, we shall not be liable for any theft, loss or damage caused to the products as a result.

Title in the goods shall not pass until the price of the garments have been paid in full. The risk of loss for such items will pass to the customer upon delivery of the items.

 

Returns policy

If you are not satisfied with the fit of the ordered items(s) The Drop will, after inspection of the goods, follow a strict policy of first altering the suit to meet your requirements, next if for any reason the suit you have ordered cannot be altered we will remake the suit for you, and finally once both those options have been exhausted if there is still a legitimate complaint regarding the suit, we will provide you with a full refund. The Drop shall retain the final discretion in determining whether there remains a legitimate fault with the garment.

Do note however that a refund, where applicable, can only be processed following the procedures of alterations and replacement. In the event of a refund, we reserve the right to deduct shipping and delivery charges from the amount refunded.

Please also be aware that as all suits made by The Drop are bespoke, made-to-order products you will not be covered by the Distance Selling (The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013), which means that you are not entitled by law to an automatic refund. Therefore, our returns procedures, as outlined above, will apply in all cases.

Where an order consists of multiple garments, the start of the manufacturing process commences with the first garment. For the avoidance of doubt, subsequent garments on a multiple garment order cannot be cancelled once the first garment has been started.

In the unlikely event that a manufacturing error has occurred we will follow our strict policy of altering, replacing and finally refunding (as set out above) for a period of up to 3 months after completion of an order. We will require you return the garment to us, by post for inspection. We are not liable for defects resulting from the customer not following our care instructions. Should a customer return a garment more than 6 months after completion we will not accept responsibility for a faulty garment and will maintain the customer has had fair use of the product.
