SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
SHIPPING OPTIONS. In order to keep your costs for transport as low as possible and transparent we offer various shipping options to most countries:
AUSTRIAN POST: The parcels are forwarded by Austrian Post as Priority International Parcels and will be delivered to your address by the Austrian Post or by their local partner in your country. The duration and costs of your delivery depend on the destination and can be seen in your Shopping Bag and during the Checkout process. To countries where Priority International Parcel service is not available, we offer shipping by DHL Express or DPD.
COURIER SERVICE: Depending on your shipping destination, we offer courier services through either DPD (to some European countries) and DHL Express (to the rest of the world). The duration and costs of your delivery depend on the destination.
RESTRICTIONS. All shipping options listed above are limited to a maximum weight of 10 kg per single order. Made-to-measure belts cannot be shipped to People’s Republic of China.
IMPORTANT DISPATCH & DELIVERY INFORMATION:
STOCK SHOES and SHOE TREES: We dispatch orders within 2-3 working days after we have confirmed your order.
PRE-ORDER SHOES: We need between 10-14 weeks to produce a pair in your size; therefore your shoes will be dispatched the manufacturing process has ended. We will do our best to finalise your order earlier than that if possible.
MADE-TO-MEASURE BELTS: Orders can be dispatched earliest in 5-7 working days after the placement of your order, since the belt needs to be adjusted to your precise size. Important information for non-EU customers: Made-to-Measure belts from crocodile leather require an additional 5-15 working days for the release of the CITES certificate mandatory for all shipments of exotic leather products to non-EU countries.
MIXED ORDERS: If you have ordered a Made-to-Measure belt or placed in your Shopping Bag a Pre-Order for a pair of shoes along with other products that are in stock, your entire order will be dispatched when the item with the later dispatch date will be ready. If you wish to have the stock products delivered faster, please place separate orders for products with a different dispatch date.
DELIVERY DURATION. Please note that the shipping services are provided by third-party contractors and these companies don’t offer a guaranteed delivery time, only an estimated one. The estimated runtime for your delivery starts from the moment you receive from us an e-mail confirmation stating that your parcel has been dispatched.
If you are not at the shipping address you have provided, when the delivery is made, make sure that an authorised person is taking over the parcel for you. If nobody is present at your shipping address, the forwarder will leave a notification. Try not to overlook this notification.
LATE DELIVERIES. Late deliveries are to be handled as follows, depending on the shipping method you have opted for:
For Austrian Post: Please inform us about overdue deliveries earliest 5 days after the estimated delivery time has expired. We will track your parcel and keep you updated on the progress continuously. Since your parcel may be stored at your local post office, a profound search in case of loss can only be initiated after the storage time at the destination has expired. In most countries this is 4 to 6 weeks. For a full refund in case of loss, please allow 3 weeks after expired storage time at your local post office.
For Courier Service (DPD or DHL Express): Please contact us if your order has not arrived 3 days after the given runtime has expired. We will track your parcel and keep you updated on the progress continuously. In case we cannot track your parcel and our forwarder is unable to find it within 4 weeks, we will immediately refund the full amount of the invoice to your credit card or bank account.
RETURNS, REFUNDS AND SIZE EXCHANGES
OUR RETURN POLICY. If you have purchased stock items or pre-ordered shoes from us and you wish to return them, you may do so within 14 days after you have received your parcel.
Returns of shoes will incur a re-stocking fee of €20/pair. This fee is necessary for re-polishing, re-packaging and re-stocking the shoes, in order to fulfill all our customers' expectations of receiving shoes in pristine conditions. The re-stocking fee will be waived for size exchanges.
Items must be returned new and unused. All shoes must be tried on a carpeted surface; avoid flexing your feet to keep the leather from making pleats at the vamps. Shoes that are returned with marked soles or any other visible signs of wearing will not be accepted. Make sure you return all items that have been shipped to you along with the shoes: original box, shoe bags and shoe laces.
Made-to-Order shoes and customised stock shoes or customised pre-order shoes cannot be returned.
Our handmade belts are only offered as Made-to-Measure and they are adjusted to fit precisely to the measure you have given us during the ordering process. Therefore, we cannot accept returns on this type of product.
HOW TO INITIATE A RETURN. If you want to return a product to us, please contact us in advance via email or using our contact form, provide your order/invoice number and tell us the reason why you want to return the item.
Your email will help us identify your return when it arrives at our warehouse. Unidentified returns may be shipped back to the sender.
SHIPPING OF RETURNS. Your return must be sent from the same country to which we made the original shipment.
For customers outside EU: All parcels sent back to us must be accompanied by the necessary customs documentation. This documentation, which we will provide to you via email, enables your parcel to be cleared through the Austrian Customs. Returns without proper customs documentation will not be cleared by the Austrian Customs and will therefore be refused and returned to you.
Returns in transit are entirely your responsibility. If your return gets lost or it is damaged in transit, you are liable for the value of the items and, therefore, we will not be able to issue a refund. Therefore, we recommend that you use a secure trackable means to return your purchase to us and that you insure the contents of the shipment. Keep a tracking number and/or the forwarder’s receipt, as a proof of dispatch.
The shipment costs for returning merchandise must be covered by you. In cases of warranty, we refund a limited amount of the customer’s return shipping costs. (See our Refund Policy below.)

We do not refund any taxes, customs duties and charges claimed by the Customs Authorities of your country. However, if you have paid these duties and wish to claim them back, please contact your local Customs Office.
SIZE EXCHANGES. If you have purchased a pair of shoes that doesn’t fit you, you can opt to exchange it for another size. In this case, contact us as soon as possible via email for reserving the replacement item. Once the initial pair has been returned and reached our warehouse, we will ship the exchange pair.
