Frequently Asked Questions



How do I track my order?

1. Locate Your Tracking Number

So long as you've entered your email correctly, you'll receive a tracking number for your order, or for each part of your order. We ship our gear from up to four (4) different places, so you could receive up to four (4) tracking numbers. A shipping confirmation email is sent each time a tracking number is matched to a part of your order. For our custom made-to-order gear, you may even receive a tracking number up to 2 weeks before your gear ships.

I didn't receive a confirmation email with my order

1. Check your Account info

A full record of your order is held in your account. Can't access your account with the email provided, or email not found? You probably entered your email incorrectly. Use our contact form to send us the correct email, and we'll update your account info.

If there is no order information in your account, your payment didn't go through. Your order will still be in your cart. Verify with your online credit card records or Paypal account that the order didn't go through, and then place the order again. A record of your order will appear in your account immediately after placing your order, and you will receive an order confirmation email.

2. Check your Spam Folder

If your email address was entered correctly, our order confirmation and shipping emails may be in your spam folder. Regardless, all order information and shipping information (including tracking numbers) is available in your account.

My package should have been here by now. What should I do?

If you have confirmed that your order went through, here are your next steps:

1. Confirm your package has shipped

If your order included pre-order items, it generally will not ship until the pre-order items are in stock. Your order will ship as soon as the pre-order items have been delivered, sorted (into sizes / colors), and shelved.

Your package may have also been held if there was some issue with your order, such as your size being unexpectedly out of stock, your phone camera covering your case design, or USPS not recognizing your address (rural locations). In this case, we will email you to resolve the problem. If our emails are continuously spam filtered and we are unable to resolve the problem, we will issue a refund for all items that cannot be sent and associated shipping, typically 2 weeks after receiving the order.

2. Track your Package

If your packages have shipped, but haven't been received as expected, acquire the tracking number for the undelivered portion of your order. Your tracking number can be found in your shipping notification email, or in your account. Use our Special Tracking Link.

3. Contact your local Post Office

Contact your local post office with your tracking number. Your local post office can use the tracking number to redirect your package to another address, or tell you which post office to visit in order to pick up your package.

4. Contact us

Send us an email or use our chat window. Include another way for us to get in contact with you, such as your Tumblr, Instagram, or Twitter account. Many major email providers (specifically Hotmail and Yahoo) view our elegant communications as spam, and treat us accordingly. Gmail works, and you are always welcome to contact us through our Twitter or Tumblr. Instagram is not recommended because only the last 200 notifications are stored.

Special instructions for International Customers

Live outside the US or Canada? Of course we ship to your country - and with a tracking number too.

However, please be advised: Packages sent to international customers can be subject to more complications that keep your packages from being delivered. Often times, your English-language address is poorly understood by the local postal system, and your package is held by the local post office before being returned to us. If you live outside the US or Canada, it is very important that you verify your address with Google, and track your package.

1. Verify your Address

If your package is returned to us because the address you provided could not be properly understood, we will email you to request an alternate address. If our emails go unanswered, we will issue a refund. That's why it's super important to verify your address!

We've seen packages delivered to similar-sounding addresses on adjacent streets, similar addresses in adjacent towns, and packages refused at the border. Not sure if your address is deliverable? We recommend using Google Maps to confirm that the information you are providing matches Google's understanding of where that address is located.

Enter your address into Google Maps. Is the address understood? Then copy it word for word into your account profile. Does Google Maps have trouble understanding your address? Then the post office will too: use a friend's house, or your place of work instead. Trust us! We can no longer give refunds for addresses not recognized by Google Maps.

2. Track your Package

All International packages ship with either United States Postal Service (USPS) or Hong Kong Post tracking numbers. These tracking numbers are guaranteed to work until your package departs the country of origin.

USPS tracking numbers will continue to work in the following partner countries: Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, France, Netherlands, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, Israel and Brazil.

Hong Kong Post is part of the EMS Worldwide network, and Hong Kong Post tracking numbers work on many of the local partners. Use the EMS Worldwide list to find your local partner, and trace your package every day!

If you suspect your package has been lost, or if any warning messages appear, contact your local post office with your tracking number 7 days after your package leaves the US or Hong Kong to ensure delivery. Your local post office can use the tracking number to redirect your package to another address, or tell you which post office to visit in order to pick up your package.

Undeliverable USPS packages will be sent back to the United States, and undeliverable Hong Kong Post packages will be sent back to Hong Kong.

What's the deal with customs and duties?

Customs and import duties aren't charged until your gear arrives in your home country. Fair value is reported on each item shipped in order to minimize the import fees.

For gear that is made in the US, shipments to addresses in the US are duty free.

Customs policies are unique to each country, and there really isn't any way for us to know what the charges will be for every country. It's your job to pay your customs duties, son.

My size is sold out. Will you be printing more? Why not?

Heck no! But also yes.

We always print in small batches because we can't afford to keep making gear if we have a lot of unsold gear lying around. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to everyone that busts their butt to be able to grab our gear while it's still available. It would be unfair to them for us to just turn around and print more. When we say Limited Edition, we mean Limited Edition.

That said, if something is sold out and you want it, tell us! We can always make something other style of gear with the same design the following year, but we need to know what. For example, our new black tank tops feature designs that were previously available as a crew neck and a grey tank top in 2012.
