Products may vary slightly from their pictures on our site. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours and images of our Products that appear on the site.

Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the Product may vary from that shown in images on our site.
The price of a Product will be as quoted on our site. Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with you by e-mail.

Please note that if you pay in any other currency that the relevant prevailing exchange rate will apply and that your bank may charge you a conversion fee.
Products are shipped to most countries on a “DDP” (Delivery Duty Paid) basis, whereby all relevant import taxes and duties will be included in the Product price. The VAT rate applicable to our warehouse’s jurisdiction is applicable to all purchases made from countries in the EU, but VAT is not applicable where purchases are made from elsewhere. The countries to which we offer DDP deliveries are listed on our Delivery page .
Where a non-DDP destination is selected, a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) destination is selected, product prices displayed are exclusive of all taxes and duties that may apply to them. If you place an order to be delivered to a DDU location you agree that you will be liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes which may be levied by the country of destination and that payment of these may be necessary in order to release your order from customs on arrival.
Please note that in the event that you return a product, there will be no refund of tax and duties that you have paid directly to any state collection agency.
Full payment is required at the time the order is placed. You can pay through our payment processor or any other payment methods which we may add to our site from time to time.

8. RIGHT OF RETURN, REFUND AND CANCELLATION
Your right to return. If you are a resident in the European Union, then you have the right to return purchased Products for a refund within fourteen (14) days of you receiving the Products for any reason. The Product(s) must be returned directly to us unused, and we are responsible for issuing all refunds in relation to cancelled contracts and returned products. We have the right to withhold or reduce any refund on Products that have already been worn and/or which have been damaged or otherwise diminished in value.
Please note that, for hygiene reasons, we are unable to accept returns of Products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
To cancel a Contract in this way you must contact us in writing which you may do by sending an e-mail to [email protected], by using the ‘contact us’ page of our website, or by sending a letter to Alpha Charlie Limited, 3 Cadogan Gate, Chelsea, London, SW1X 0AS, UK. Once we receive your notice of your intention to cancel we will send you a cancellation notification for your records, you may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation will be effective from the date you sent us the e-mail or posted the letter to us.
We do not offer free returns, so you will be responsible for paying the cost of postage if you choose to return Products to us. For details of how to use our selected carrier (for UK Customers only) and how we ask you to package returns, please see our Returns page.
Please note that we will not make any refund to you until we have received the relevant Products from you and confirmed that they have not been damaged, for details please see our Returns page.
Your right to return Products that are faulty or not as described. If your Product is faulty or not as described, you have a right to cancel your order and get the Product replaced or a full refund. The cancellation period starts from the date of the e-mail from us to you confirming your order and ends 30 days after the day you actually receive the Product. If you want to cancel the Contract, you must do so by notifying us of your decision during the cancellation period.
Alternatively, if your product is faulty or not as described and a period of more than 30 days has elapsed, then you are entitled to request a replacement or a repair. If your Products cannot be repaired or replaced by us then you are entitled to request a refund within six months from the date that you received the Product. Products returned in this way should have their original tags attached, and we reserve the right to reject refund requests which relate to goods which have been damaged by customers while being worn.
If you are entitled to receive a refund in this way and you are a customer located in the EU then you will also receive a full refund of the price you paid for the Products and any standard delivery charges that you paid for them (which excludes the cost of any expedited or special delivery).
We will process your refund as soon as possible after receiving the returned faulty product from you and confirming the reported fault and, in any case, within 30 calendar days of the day of receiving it and making that confirmation.
Please note that we reserve the right, in certain jurisdictions, to suspend the granting of refunds during certain periods of the year at which we experience particularly high demand. Where this is the case it will be noted on our Returns page.
