International packages are shipped via UPS, DHL, or US Post's Express Mail Service (EMS). We ship Monday through Friday. The rates are much more expensive than US shipping. There is no way we can offer free international shipping.
We will not use the cheaper services (Global Priority and Surface) due to a lack of tracking numbers. It has proven too tempting for fraud in the past. DHL, UPS & EMS keep everybody honest. Priority EMS (Priority Express Mail Service with the US Post Office) Basic cost for EMS starts at a one pound rate which is $38.00-$52.00. Yes- if you only need one patch it still must ship this method.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES
If the product is in any way unsatisfactory, displeasing, does not fit, or misbehaves, ship it back in the original condition within 10 days for a refund or exchange. (The item needs to be shipped within 10 days. Especially with international orders we realize that it may take a few more to reach us.) Refunds will be made via the original method of payment, excluding shipping and handling charges.
Return Shipping Charges
Customers are responsible for all return and exchange shipping costs.
Only in cases where we sent the wrong* item, or a defective item will we reimburse shipping charges.
Return shipping charges for items needing to be inspected before insignia is sewn are also the customer's responsibility.
* "Wrong item" means the item shipped was not what was specifically ordered. If you order a size 44 Field Jacket, and we send you a size 44, then it's the correct item. If you order a 44 and we send you a 50, then it's the "wrong item".
We will not reimburse expedited shipping charges back to us without prior approval. If you send your return to us by Next Day Air or another high priced service, we will NOT refund those charges, unless you have cleared it with us beforehand. We will only approve this in rare cases with extenuating circumstances.
Defective items: If you have a problem with an item (missing button, loose zipper, etc) please contact us first as it may be more practical (in time and money) to send you the part(s) it needs. If you have 2 left sleeves, then that's another matter. We do NOT accept returns under the following conditions
Returns will not be accepted if...
1. The item was received by the customer more than 10 days previous to it being shipped back to us. If it takes 60 days to realize that the pants are too small, there is a problem, but it is not ours to solve.
2. The item has been modified. (Patches sewn on, a garment has been tailored, item has been painted or stripped)
3. The item has been used. Tried-on is not the same thing. By all means, try it on, but once you've run around the block or climbed Kilimanjaro with it, it's yours. Also, if it isn't fitting easily, don't force it onto your body. Send it back for a larger size. This is an example of what NOT to do...
4. The item has been washed.
5. If there is no copy of the sales receipt. If you have lost it, call us, we'll probably work it out. If there is no copy of the receipt, we will simply send it back to you.
6. If the item was sold as a "closeout", it is not returnable.
7. The item was bought at a show from the close outs/defects we only take to shows. If you bought a bunch of $1.00 patches or a pair of defective boots and then try to return them for the regular stock we offer, we will just return them to you with a bill for shipping them back
Multiple/ Duplicate Orders: If you send us 2 or more email orders either by mistake or due to impatience, it is your responsibility to contact us to cancel the extra order(s). We will not refund shipping and return shipping for duplicate orders!
Product failure/ Warranty
If one of our products fails or develops a problem, we may repair or replace it after the normal return period, depending upon the circumstances. Normal wear and tear (worn soles on boots, fading uniforms, chipped paint on hardware, uniform shrinkage, lost hobnails, and aging of leather) is not covered. However, defective workmanship or materials we will address on a case by case basis. Snaps or zippers that break, loose eyelets, etc, we will usually repair. In some cases, the cost of shipping the item back to us exceeds the repair cost, so it will be easier to simply send you replacement parts.

Additionally, you will be charged for any return shipping from your country incurred by us. Several customers have been unhappy with the duties their customs office demands. That is NOT our problem. Likewise, if we are requested to reship the refused package, you will end up paying shipping again. This is NOT negotiable or debatable. Habitually troublesome customers will be cut off and will not accept your orders.
