If I'm in the Los Angeles area, can I swing by to pick up my order?
Not at this time! We partner with a shipping facility to send out our orders.
Do you take on interns?
Sorry friend! We are not taking on interns.
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 primarily in Los Angeles at a sweatshop free sewing 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.
Any internationally produced items are verified quality and sweatshop free by a third party organization for us.
What is your corporate environmental responsibility like?
Our clothes are primarily made of deadstock materials. These pieces are zero waste as we are rescuing materials from the landfill instead of producing new fabrics. When we have leftover fabric, we transform it into items like masks, scrunchies, and napkins or we donate it to Project Ropa in Los Angeles. We offset all carbon emissions from shipping by investing in forestry initiatives!
Let’s talk about shipping. Tell me about Domestic Shipping.
Totally. All orders shipped within the United States are sent via USPS First Class, FedEx Surepost, or UPS Ground (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 3 business days from when you placed your order and usually take up to one additional week (depending on the shipping times you've chosen) to reach their destination. Custom embroidery can also add an additional week or two to the shipping timeline, so please keep that in mind when placing your order.
What about International Shipping?
We ship all over the world except to the UK! 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 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 of California is not responsible for these fees as annoying as they are! Should you need to make an exchange or return for store credit, the customer is responsible for international shipping 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 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 us up 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, Fedex, or UPS. Please note that we do not offer refunds and can’t replace custom pieces.
Return to sender orders:
If your order is returned to us due to an inaccurate address, or maybe you moved after ordering with us, we can reship for the cost of shipping and a +$3 fee.
What if something is wrong? Or I want something else?
A quick and dirty guide to returns:
- We have a 15 day return policy, which means you have 15 days to get in touch with us after your item has been delivered.
- You can now process returns through our returns portal here.
- We do NOT do exchanges, only returns.
- We offer free domestic return shipping.
- You have 5 days once you receive the postage to put your item in the mail in unwashed, unworn condition in the original polybag.
- If you're late beyond the above timeframe, we will still accept your package less a 20% restocking fee within 30 days.
- Returns are not accepted beyond 30 days.
- If your item returns to us without original packaging and needs to be refurbished (cleaned, folded, and relabeled) you will be given store credit less a 15% cleaning fee. This fee may be additional to the 20% fee if your item is also late.
- We do not accept washed items and it will be returned to you.
- Sale items are final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged.

Should you have any issues with your order, please email us at email@example.com within 15 days of receiving your order. We do not offer refunds, but can offer you store credit if contacted within the 15 day window. You must contact us before posting it back to us. We will not accept packages returned to us that have not been in contact with us first as we have a partner warehouse that requires this information. 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 using the return label we issue you. We cannot guarantee stock availability for a return and issue store credit to choose your exchange item. If we receive a return item past the stated window of time (15 days to contact, 5 days to ship), we can offer you store credit, less a 20% restocking fee. We cover the cost of your first return from an order, but each subsequent return from that order number will incur a shipping fee. We send your store credit once 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.
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 cleaning fee of 15% will be subtracted from your store credit. Keep those kitties away from your returns!
What if I bought something and you later have a sale?
Apologies, we cannot accommodate price adjustments, but recommend keeping an eye for our awesome sales! We're known to do Mystery Boxes that are pretty great.
How long do I have to use a discount code?
Party! If you were given a discount code from a staff member, you have 6 months from date of issue to use it!
Pre-orders and Returns
Pre-orders help us produce our twelve piece size run and take around three months to make. Three months 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help facilitate store credit for another piece.
