If items are delayed in the post to an unacceptable level to you, items must be returned to Big Matt's Menswear for a full refund. If items are lost in the post, the standard Royal Mail or courier compensation procedure will be under taken by the Big Matt's Menswear on your behalf.

If you believe that an item is faulty, please contact us before returning the item as it may not always be possible to exchange or refund in the case of a faulty item i.e. if an item develops a fault after you have had it for more than 28 days, then it is unlikely that is can be returned.

Out of stock items:
Any normally stocked items shown out of stock on our web site may be able to be ordered if our manufacturers have any available stock. Clothing is commissioned seasonally and very often when an allocation is used up it is not possible to obtain more. In line with our policy of customer satisfaction we will always make enquiries with manufacturers in order to try to obtain specific items if requested. In these circumstances we will communicate by phone or email and should we manage to secure the goods we will inform you and following payment we will dispatch the goods to you. Please allow extra delivery times for these special orders.
Not normally stocked items:
If you require a specific item that is not shown on our website at all we will always be happy to try and trace that item for you through our extensive range of suppliers.
