When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.
You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

Covid-19 Shipping Delay Notice
We Will Always Be Here For You
Shipping Service-Related Impact due to Covid-19
EXPECT DELAYS. Our carriers have informed us of delays due to record-breaking e-commerce orders, COVID-19 closures and safety concerns, as well as weather events. Your order may be impacted by these delays.
All orders outside of Pakistan may experience a delay due to high demand and restrictions posed by COVID-19. All orders over $100 USD may be automatically required to go through a customs clearance processing. Kindly note Canadian Customs, Switzerland, and some Europe countries have experienced a high rate of absenteeism due to COVID-19 delaying the processing of packages. They are working cautiously to get your packages to you!
When you place your order, you will be notified with your order confirmation within 15 minutes. If you did not receive an order confirmation please email us, at firstname.lastname@example.org
When your order has been shipped you will receive a second email with your shipping notification via email provided within 4-7 business days from placing your order. Business days do not count as holidays and or weekends.
Expect major delays in standard shipping during this time and with expedited, Xpress, or priority shipping. FedEx, DHL, DPD can no longer guarantee regular or on-time shipping estimates given the current global situation as they accommodate the increased service demands with mail and parcel delivery of Christmas-level volumes of mail and limited staff.
If your tracking shows a label has been created:
Our production team has shipped your package, but it could still be at the post office. Many carrier facilities are operating at full capacity with a backlog of scanning packages due to limited staff. There may not be updated tracking events for you to check on until your parcel has been scanned and sorted, or is Out for Delivery.
If your order is in transit:
Kindly note that your package may be held by the carrier for delivery at a later date due to the world circumstances beyond their control as carriers quarantine some packages. There may not be updated tracking events for you to check on until your parcel is Out for Delivery.
There is nothing more to do your part, we're taking good care of your order!
If you would like to track your order, opt for the expedited shipping options.

More on our shipping & returns policy
Hussars' bright military dress from 1700 onward was influenced by the popular Hungarian trends of the time. The typical components of this outfit included a short jacket called a "dolman" or, later, a medium-length "attila" jacket, both with heavy, horizontal gold braid on the chest and yellow or gold Austrian knots (sjtás) on the sleeves, a matching pelisse (a short-waisted over-jacket frequently worn slung over one shoulder), coloured pants, sometimes with yellow or gold Austrian knots at the front, a busby ( (often Hessian boots). Frequently, a sabretache—a decorative bag hung from the belt—completed the attire.
Hussars were known for being the army's daring, if disorderly, explorers. The stereotypical portrayal of a hussar is that of a womanising, hard-drinking, hard-swearing, reckless swashbuckler with a moustache. This mentality was best exemplified by General Lasalle, the prototypical arrogant hussar officer, who said things like, "Any hussar who is not dead by the age of thirty is a blackguard."

- The easiest and fastest way to process your exchange is to purchase the replacement items in a new order, then return the unsuitable items for a refund.
- Alternatively, you can send them back to us for an exchange and we'll post the replacements to you. You can process your exchange via our online exchange system.
- Once we receive your returned items back, we'll get the replacements sent out
- normally this takes anywhere from a few days to a week or two depending on how long it takes the items to come back to us.
To exchange an item, please purchase a replacement item in a new order, and then return the unsuitable items for a refund.
If you are thinking of exchanging something - remember that you can combine the replacement item with any other items you may wish to purchase, and only pay to ship for the combined order.
