  • Please use our Nicola Hawes Returns Form,    print and fill in,  photograph or scan and attach the form completed.
    Please clearly state if you want to return the garment for a refund, or exchange your purchase for a site credit (same or higher value).

  • We can issue site credit and make an exchange where a size does not fit. However we can only do this after we receive the garment returned in perfect condition.
    Nicola Hawes Returns Form
  • Unfortunately we do not issue refunds if you change your mind so please choose carefully.
  • Equally important to note that return shipping is at the Purchasers expense and we recommend you track the shipment to avoid losses in transit. Should the garment be lost we will be unable to issue a refund.
  • As soon as you request the refund or exchange send us the vest in it’s original packaging and with documentation to:

Garment Condition

Any returned products which are damaged, stretched, pulled or soiled, or which do not include the packaging materials, will not be eligible for refund.   We prefer that purchased products are returned in the original packaging, including any boxes, envelopes or carry bags.


Shipping charges are non-refundable. The return shipping charges are the buyer’s responsibility unless the return is necessary due to a fault in the product. As such we recommend sending return items insured to avoid a possible loss or theft in transit.


When we receive any returned products we first inspect them to check for any damage.
Once we ensure the condition of the returned item we will then charge a refund within 5 business days.
Your refund can only be made to the original credit card or PayPal account.
