Returns Policy


If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you can return any items to us in its original condition* within 30 days of receipt. Exchanges and/or Refunds will only be granted within this timescale.

*Original condition is classed as unworn or unused so please take all reasonable care and keep all packaging and labels.


If requesting monogramming please ensure you check the sizes carefully as refunds cannot be offered once items have been embroidered with personal names/initials. If you are unsure of size then please visit one of our stores and we can help guide you to establish the correct size needed.


We monitor quality of stock on an ongoing basis and make our best efforts to ensure that it conforms to description, is of a satisfactory quality and is fit for purpose as stated in the Sale of Goods Act 1979.

We allow a 30 day period for the return of any goods that you do not feel meet these guidelines and if confirmed we will refund or replace without delay.

In some cases if we feel that we would like further advice from a manufacturer to ascertain if the item has a manufacturing fault, we reserve the right to return the item to them for their comments. We will make sure this is done in a reasonable time and we reach a conclusion as soon as possible. Please note, we cannot accept photographs as proof of a fault, and do need the item to be returned to us in order to be able to replace. We cannot send out a replacement before receiving the faulty goods back.

Items that are used and are within a 6 month period of purchase, that you feel have developed a fault will be inspected and, if deemed to be faulty due to a manufacturing fault, will be credited or refunded to the value when purchased. Anything over this time will be dealt with at the discretion of F.R.Monkhouse Limited.

Please enclose a COPY OF THE INVOICE or RECEIPT and a brief covering letter explaining the reason for the return and whether a refund or a replacement is preferred. If you do not include all of the necessary paperwork the refund or replacement of your goods may be delayed or not completed.
