The item I want is out of stock, how can I order it?
You can always contact us regarding any item on our website, however you may click “Notify Me When Available” to receive an email when the sold out item you’re interested in returns to stock.
ORDERS & SHIPPING
I placed an order, but have not received a shipping confirmation with tracking information. How can I find my order status?
We strive to fulfill orders as quickly as possible, however it may take a few extra days for us to ship the items to you. Because we source products from across the globe, it can sometimes take a few business days for the items to arrive at our NYC HQ from the warehouse. As a local business, it’s simply impossible for us to hold local inventory of all products, sizes and colors featured on our website, which is why some items will ship from the warehouse. The COVID-19 Pandemic has further contributed to limited staff and efficiency of shipping services, which results in some delays. Our Free Economy Shipping can take an estimated 7 - 10 business, in some cases it can take less days, sometimes more. We truly appreciate your patience and we strive to offer you artisanal and difficult-to-get products that we use and love. If your item is not fulfilled within a day or two, this is likely the case. We typically ship via USPS as it is most often the fastest and most reliable service, plus we love the postal workers of USPS, they’re always super nice! If you have a specific question about your order, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
Do you ship internationally?
At this time we are only able to ship within the USA.
I am trying to purchase a bundle of jersey, bib shorts and socks, but the bundle discount is not being applied to my cart. Can you help me fix that?
Yes, occasionally there’s a backend error where certain payment types such as PayPal and Apple Pay disable the automatic bundle code from apply. The easiest solution is to checkout normally, and we will manually refund your 15% bundle discount to your original payment method.
