What does ex chainstore mean?
Ex-chainstore means that the clothing was originally made for a major high street chainstore who cancelled the order. The most common cause for cancellations is late delivery. We can then offer them to our wholesale customers at a substantially lower price than the original manufacturer's price to the store group who ordered them in the first place!
Are original labels removed?
Store labels are removed, cut or blacked out in accordance to requirements of the chainstores. This is in order to protect the intellectual rights of the original high street chainstore and to prevent unauthorised store-returns. Labels are removed by the manufacturer or by ourselves before sale, however mistakes can happen and it is our customers' responsibility to ensure that all kimbles and original labels which can identify who the garment was made for are removed prior to sale! Goods that were originally made for chainstores, brands or on-line retailers are supplied under strict condition that all labels and tags are removed before resale and that no reference to the original storegroup is made when being offered for sale.
We do not display chainstore tags on our website as they may be subject to copyright protection but we usually have a sample of each style with original labels and tags.
All items of clothing have labels with washing instructions and fabric content.
Where Ex-Chainstore goods have been delivered with labels, do we have to remove them?
Goods that were originally made for chainstores, brands or on-line retailers are supplied under strict condition that all labels and tags are removed before resale and that no reference to the original storegroup is made when offered for sale. This is the responsibility of the purchaser of goods whose name or company appears on the sales invoice. Some brand names may be licensed to a store group, designer or manufacturer. Where this is the case, it is our customers' responsibility to ensure that all kimbles and original labels which can identify who the garment was made for are removed prior to sale!
What high street stores do you have stock from?

Are all your items of clothing ex-chainstore?
No. Where we have not listed the item as ex chainstore, they will be sold with labels (and tags where applicable). Some brand names may, however, be licensed to a store group, designer or manufacturer. Where this is the case, it is our customers' responsibility to ensure that all kimbles and original labels which can identify who the garment was made for are removed prior to sale!

If we are shipping to the country of destination using our courier and the invoice address is in the country of destination, you will not have to pay VAT when placing the order.
If we are shipping to a UK address and you are arranging shipping abroad you will have to pay VAT when placing the order.
We will refund the VAT if the following is done:
1. The invoice address is the address the goods are being delivered to in the country of destination, NOT an address in the UK.
2. You supply us with a proof of shipment from your shipping company. This must be in the form of an SOE8 declaration with either a "customs departure message" or an "entry advice after departure".
