|Here at Connoisseur our main source of payment accepted is PayPal. It's the easiest way to accept payment from all over the world.
And of course is very secure.
Paypal covers the regular debit and credit cards and you don't need to sign up or register, simply select follow the instructions to pay with your card, it's easy.
We have recently had quite a few queries asking about no email confirmation after ordering. All payments are processed with paypal. You receive a paypal email transaction and with it a unique transaction number. This is your proof of purchase. Also during checkout you are notified that your payment has gone through.
We deal with the rest, we feel we provide a great service with a fast turnaround. We receive a high volume of orders from all over the world.
We do not accept personal cheques. If paying with an Echeque purchases aren't sent until it clears.
We do not accept Bank transfers either at present, unless with bulk orders with prior contact.
Please note certain lines of our stock can and does sell out very quickly. Dealing in limited numbers with items like the Ski hats it does happen and we operate on a 'fastest fingers first' basis with plenty of advanced notification of the release date. PLEASE also note that merely adding to basket does not guarantee you a purchase. Items can be held in a cart for a short period, but until you fully checkout the product can be returned to stock if your cart expires.
Please note from 30th April 2012 postal prices have rose rather significantly! And increased further in April 02 2013. However we strive to remain as fair and competitive as we can and share the hit between us and you the buyer; for example an item of clothing from us to post now costs on average £4.10 (UK Recorded), between £3.50-£7.85 (Europe standard) and £4.98-£12.60 (rest of World standard) with a further £6.00 required for the international signed for/trackable option. We have tried to keep any increases or postage charges as low as we can and continue to offer a great product for great value for money, it still can be done!
We always strive to ensure a nice fast turnaround with postage. Though we ask you to please allow around 3-5 working days for purchases to be processed and delivered to you. Unless of course purchased at weekend or Public Holidays/peak time (eg Summer or) PLEASE ALLOW longer during the hectic festive period or in the event where the workload is high, during a Sale or for example the Weir hats release where items have sold out very quickly delays may be expected and out of our hands.
Items are sent out overseas using standard 'International Airmail'. If you want your item sending out trackable/signed for you must add to cart and purchase the extra signed-for option as this will be of extra cost to you. (on top of the standard postal weight price). Otherwise as stated items are sent out using International Airmail, this is a standard mail option, there is no tracking number with this. We cannot be held liable or responsible for any missing items sent abroad. (See below for more). Once we have posted something out we can do no more. Please note, we have noticed places in Italy and Russia specifically can take a very long time to be delivered sometimes even months, (this is the same for many british shops) and on the very rare occasion sometimes not even arrive. If in any doubt at all then it's up to you to please add the signed for option. This is solely down to the postal service of those countries and there is nothing we can do about it, except to recommend you use the signed for/trackable extra option. Otherwise items are sent as stated above and in buying you accept our T&C when you enter into a purchase.
PLEASE NOTE: All items are sent with Royal Mail and using a Certificate of Bulk Posting Proof with everything we send out UK, Europe and the rest of World.
We are NOT liable for items after we have posted them.
In the event of missing/lost items it is up to the buyer to seek items and or compensation. We post a high volume of items worldwide and mainland items can be tracked via the recorded reference number (UK) and International we have proof we have sent but cannot trace them, standard international airmail doesn't provide a tracking number. Nor can we give a time of how long they will take to arrive as each Country varies, (for example Russia and Italy can be very slow) If you do not want standard airmail where you cannot track it, then you can add Signed for at checkout and pay the extra costs yourself, as mentioned above. We offer that choice, otherwise when you make a purchase you agree to our T&C as outlined on this page. We try to offer as fair a price with postage on most product where possible, though items will vary through shape and size. We try to only charge one postage cost too, regardless of qty's/product ordered.
If you want to have your items sent mainland or abroad using the 'Special Delivery' service you can at your own cost. We offer this option if you want more than the standard shipping method, please contact us after purchase. Otherwise you accept the terms and conditions of sale and are happy to use standard airmail shipping as stated. Please contact us prior to purchase. These rules and regulations form our terms and conditions and it is up to you the customer to learn and be familiar with our terms outlined here. T&C may have to be revised or changed (postal prices for example) again it's your responsibilty to be aware of our terms and conditions.
What are your garment sizes?
Our product is usually always a regular fit and pretty true to size, e.g. Large = 22.5" armpit to armpit, XL = 24 armpit to armpit, See above for more details. All items of clothing are represented by their own size guide on their pages though. We've covered it!
Do you only accept Paypal as a payment?
Paypal is the main payment accepted. Paypal does also cater for bank cards and credit cards. It's very easy and convenient and you don't have to sign up or have an account to use it. It can be used to checkout with a bank card. It is used as the merchant to process payments. We can also ship to anywhere in the world.
Unfortunately we do not accept cheques. Again see below for more details.
How do I buy your product?
Online via our site, any in stock item is available to purchase directly with a 'buy now' button. Selected product can also be purchased via any of our current selling partners or stockists subject to their stock availability.
Do you do women's or childrens Tees?
At present there are no plans to develop our designs on to any other tees than stated, ie baby wear or 'skinny fit' tees. We don't get enough demand for this type of tee to currently make it viable. Most of our design work is aimed at the male persuasion or film lover. That's not to say we're being ageist or indeed sexist, if there is a demand for a certain design we'll strive to see what we can do subject to supplier availability.
I live abroad, can I purchase your product?
Absolutely. We'll send our tees out to anywhere in the world. With free postage worldwide. Please see payment details below for more details on costs and postal guides.
Can you supply your product in bulk for sale?
Yes, we currently supply several stores with our tees and are in negotiations with others. We'd be delighted to send our tees out to reach a wider market without going overboard. For details on minimum supply, cost and more details please email us. We have a policy and system in place for store supplies.
Our other product is usually done in very limited quantities and thus available exclusively online through this site.
Where possible we will offer product to our retail parntners.
Why do I not receive a receipt/invoice paperwork?
As stated above we are a 21st Century business operating fully online. We feel the use of paperwork is excessive, time consuming and an unnecessary burden on the environment. It isn't required as most/if not all of the transactions are done via paypal. The paypal transaction is your proof and receipt of purchase. When you check out you are taken to a page which clearly acknowledges your order has been successful. When you check out with paypal you will receive an email from our store notifying you of your order as will we. We'd love to respond personally to each and every sale and to let you know about orders being dispatched but time contraints and sales volumes prevent this.
Anymore questions or queries then please feel free to mail us.

|GARMENT CARE AND ATTENTION : WE TRY AND ENSURE ALL OF OUR PRODUCT HAS RELEVANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS CLEARLY ON THE GARMENT ITSELF.
IN THE EVENT IT MAY NOT WE WILL ADD THE INFORMATION ON THE PRODUCT PAGE.
Our T-shirts are all professionally screenprinted. the care guide is pretty simple and easy to follow as this method is tough, durable and versatile. However we still recommend for a longer life, less harm on the environment and to keep the best quality of your tee you should wash at 30 degrees, do not tumble dry or dry clean your tees and of course when ironing your tee you should iron on reverse/not directly on the design/motif.
FOR ALL OTHER GARMENTS PLEASE REFER TO THEIR INDIVIDUAL WASHING INSTRUCTIONS. IT'S USUALLY PRETTY CLOSE OR THE SAME.

|NOTE : we have taken the time to measure each and every garment we produce and stock, there is a clear and easy to follow size guide on each product page (where applicable), therefore you should check your sizing prior to placing an order, whilst we have to accept returns for wrong sized items it can be totally avoidable if you just follow the guide and save a lot of time and hassle for the both of us.
* In the event you have ordered the incorrect sized item, the postage cost is paid by the buyer and not ourselves as it an error on the buyers part and not ours.
We like to make things easy. Once again, please ensure you check your size prior to ordering.
