9.1 Goods are manufactured in accordance with the measurements provided by you. Please follow the instructions on how to measure which are available on the website. If you are unsure please call us for advice and clarification. We cannot accept the return of goods incorrectly measured by you.

Cancellation and Refunds

10.1 Because all our products are made to measure to your specific measurements and requirements, they cannot be resold and are not subject to the Distance Selling Regulations. It is vital, therefore, that you check order details before confirming your order with us. If you wish to cancel the only opportunity for this is between placing your order (this is when we take payment) and you confirming the order details with us, which we ask you to do by telephone or e-mail. Once order details are confirmed the order cannot be cancelled.
10.2 Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulation 2000
The Distance Selling Regulations, which allow a seven day “cooling off” period after ordering and a right to cancel an order within this period, do not apply to “personalized goods or goods made to a consumer’s specification” thereby excluding all Dolman and Taylor made to measure products.
