When to Order and Need by Dates?

      • It is best to order at least 4 weeks before your need by date. This will allow pleny of time for size exchanges if needed. If you do not order with enough time to make a needed exchange we still do not accept return for refund - exchange only - so order in plenty of time!
      • Give us your need by date. Entering your need by date at checkout helps us to determine if you chose the correct shipping method for delivery by this date. Entering your need by date in no way guarantees delivery by said date.
