Do you have a physical location?
YES! We are proud to announce that our flagship store opened June 1st, 2018 at 1292 W Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles, CA. Follow @tuesdaybassen and @tuesdaybassenLA on Instagram or sign up for our newsletter for up-to-date information on the shop.
If I'm in the Los Angeles area, can I swing by to pick up my order?
Yes! You can swing by our shop and save on shipping.
Do you take on interns?
Not at this time!
Where do you make your products?
We use a combination of domestic and international production with an emphasis on local production! Our clothes are made within 5 miles of our shop in a sweatshop free sew house. We do our best to ensure that our products are made in an ethical environment with high quality materials and always use post consumer, vintage, or California produced materials first.
Why do your packages take longer to ship than Amazon?
We feel you. Although we ship daily, Amazon has a privately owned delivery system that allows them to deliver within two days. We ship via USPS, which tends to take a bit longer. Trust us, it’s worth it. Read more about delivery below.
Let’s talk about shipping. Tell me about Domestic Shipping.
Totally. All orders shipped within the United States are sent via USPS First Class (you’re worth it, babe) and come with their very own tracking number. Shipping prices are calculated during the check-out process and are based on quantity and your location within the United States. Didn't get a shipping update? Check that pesky spam folder or your "updates" folder on Gmail! Our shipping updates are automatic, just like our luv for you.
Orders are shipped within 5-10 business days from when you placed your order and usually take up to one additional week (depending on the USPS shipping times you've chosen) to reach their destination. Custom embroidery can also add an additional week to the shipping timeline, so please keep that in mind when placing your order.
Need something shipped faster than the 5-10 day shipping window? Email email@example.com before you've placed your order and she'll do her best to accommodate your needs.
What about International Shipping?
We ship all over the world! International orders are also shipped via USPS First Class within 5-10 business days. Depending on where you exist in the world, it can take longer than the standard one week for domestic shipping. For example, packages to Australia can take up to 6 weeks! Although we do everything we can to ensure a speedy delivery, once we ship it, it’s up to USPS and your country's postal system.
Shipping prices are calculated during the check-out process and are based on quantity purchased and your location. Customs and import duties may be applied to your order when it reaches its destination. Tuesday Bassen LA is not responsible for these fees.
I can barely contain myself. How do I track my order?
Tracking information sent in shipment notification emails may take up to 2 business days to update with current location. Depending on where you are in the world, your tracking may not update beyond the USPS origin scan. If your domestic shipment info hasn't been updated within 2 business days of receiving your tracking number, please feel free to hit up Crystal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if it never comes?
As we’re still a fairly small, fledgling company, we can’t accept responsibility for packages that have been stolen, mis-delivered, or lost by the occasionally unreliable USPS. If such is the case, please email Crystal at email@example.com, and we will work with you to find a solution. Please note that we do not offer refunds and can’t replace custom pieces.
What if something is wrong? Or I want to exchange it for something else?
Should you have any issues with your order, please email Crystal at firstname.lastname@example.org within 5 days of receiving your order. We do not offer refunds, but can accommodate most exchanges if contacted within the 5 day window. You must contact Crystal before posting it back to us. We will not accept packages returned to us that have not been in contact with Crystal first. Please note that we do not accept requests for returns on sale items as they are final sale.
After contacting us, you have 5 days to post the item at your own expense with tracking to us at 1292 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026. We cannot guarantee stock availability if we do not receive return shipment confirmation within 5 days. If we receive a return item past the stated window of time, we can offer you store credit, less a 15% restocking fee. We do not cover the cost of shipping on a return or exchange. We do not send your exchanged item, or store credit, until we receive your unworn, unwashed, damage free item.
Additionally, we do not accept returns and cannot accept responsibility for garments past the 30 day purchase mark. Whew!
We ask that you triple check our size chart before ordering. All sale items are final sale. Additionally, items returning to us must be in unwashed, unworn, brand new condition (no stains, odors, pet hair, etc.) otherwise a dry cleaning fee of 10% may be requested at the expense of the customer. Sorry, babe.
What if I bought something and you later have a sale?
Apologies, we cannot accommodate price adjustments.
Pre-orders and Returns
Pre-orders help us produce our eleven piece size run and take at least eight weeks to produce. Eight weeks+ might seem like a long time, but that's actually quite short considering all of the human hands that make each piece!
We do not accommodate requests for refunds on any of our products and preorders are no exception. However, if you feel like you might prefer something else instead, just email email@example.com and she can help facilitate store credit for another piece.
