When we make the refund (or, if you used Klarna's services to pay, informed them that a refund should be made) we will also re-credit you any Style Points you cashed in for a discount on the purchase price of a returned item. Any Style Points awarded for a returned item will be cancelled.
- You should return the item in its original undamaged packaging and with all tags and labels, whether ours and/or the designers and/or the manufacturers, still attached. If the original packaging is damaged and/or will not protect the item(s) securely you must provide your own secure packaging at your own cost.

- Right to Cancel your Order
1. Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations you have a right to cancel your order, without giving a reason, by written notice to us and receive a refund. This right to cancel comes to an end 14 days from the day after the day on which you receive the last of the items included in your order. It does not apply to bespoke or made-to-order.
2. To exercise this right to cancel you must notify us in writing either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or letter to The Bias Cut Limited, PO Box 73605, London, SE13 9DZ. You may find it helpful to download and complete the form of cancellation notice available [here] and send/email it to us to exercise this right, but you do not have to use this form.
3. Once we receive your notice of cancellation:
(a) if your order has not been dispatched we shall issue you (or, if you have used Klarna's services to pay, ask them to issue you) with a full refund (including for any delivery charge paid) within 14 days after the day on which we received your cancellation notice;
(b) if your order has been dispatched we shall issue you with your Cancellation Number and Return Slip, and tell you how to return your order.
- If you cancel under the Consumer Contracts Regulations after receiving your order you must return it to us within 14 days of receiving your Cancellation Number. Unless the item you are returning is faulty or incorrect, you must bear the cost of returning it (we recommend returning it via a tracked service). If we do not receive back the items in your order we may arrange for them to be collected from you at your cost.
- If possible, return your order in its original undamaged packaging. It must have all tags and labels, whether ours and/or the designers and/or the manufacturers, still attached. If the original packaging is damaged and/or will not protect the item(s) securely you must provide your own secure packaging at your own cost.
- Within 14 days of our receiving back your order or, if earlier, your providing us with evidence of having returned it (for example a proof of postage receipt from the Post Office) to us, we shall issue you (or, if you have used Klarna's services to pay, ask them to issue you) with a full refund for the item, together with the cost of standard delivery to your requested address (regardless of the shipping service you selected) but not a refund of any local import duties or tax you paid. We will also re-credit you any Style Points you cashed in for a discount on the purchase price of your cancelled order. Any Style Points awarded for the order will be cancelled.
- However, you have a legal duty to take care of your order while it is in your possession. So we may make (or, if you used Klarna's services to may, ask them to make) a deduction from the refund we make you if the value of your order has been reduced because you have handled it more than was necessary or have otherwise damaged it.
- You will receive any refund via the method you used to pay for the relevant order. So, if you used a BC voucher to purchase any item you are returning we shall email you a new voucher to the value of its purchase price by way of refund, instead of a refund being made to your credit or debit card, or by bank transfer, or by making a bank transfer to your bank account if you paid by bank transfer. If you paid for an item you are returning using both a voucher and your credit or debit card or by making a bank transfer to us, we shall refund you (or ask Klarna to refund you, if you have used their services to pay) on that payment card or by bank transfer (as appropriate) up to the amount paid via that method and email you a voucher to the value of the remainder of the purchase price of the item you are returning.
