Custom jackets, personalised wig tins and personalised robe bags are made specifically for you. This means no one else will be able to wear or use the item once it’s made. Due to this, Ludlows cannot accept any returns on these items. Please be sure to check all measurements and personalisation carefully. Ludlows understands that sometimes alterations are required once you’ve received the jacket and will be more than happy to assist you with alterations up to 30 days after receiving your item. All shipping involved in the alteration of custom-made items will be at the expense of the customer.

Please consider that all wearable garments will, over time, differ from their original condition/appearance. This is particularly true if products are left in bright sunlight and/or are not properly stored. Ludlows cannot accept any responsibility for normal wear and tear, deterioration of garments due to poor care or neglect in the cleaning of garments.
