RKD will revise headwear samples, depending on the nature of the request, however once the CUSTOM HAT ORDER has been accepted and finalized – no additional work will be carried out on the order.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CUSTOM HAT CUSTOMERS

Please be advised that because of the immense amount of time and commitment that goes into building custom hats, including, but not limited to, purchasing of specific materials, custom pattern cutting which renders material unique to client’s specific order, creating of special blocks, employment of specialized craftsmen and individual field research, you cannot cancel an order once it has been processed by our RKD staff. By placing a custom hat order with us, you accept and agree to the terms and conditions in this agreement, and by doing so, accept and understand that you have entered into a legal and binding agreement.

TOLERANCE

Please be aware, all RKD are cut and Sew pieces. So please keep in mind, that not all headwear construction will be exactly alike. There will possibly be up to a 5% tolerance ratio.

SHIPPING – “RUSH” ITEMS

If in the case that your RKD order needs to be shipped by a specific date the client agrees, accepts and understands, RKD is not responsible, if your order has been delayed because of clients instigated changes or due to Customs holds. Our staff will make every effort to keep you informed on the whereabouts of your order, and/or any delays that may occur; and of course you are more than welcome to contact us via e-mail info@rkdco.com However, the delay of an item for reasons outside our control (including, but not limited to, acts of God, special material delays, re-do’s of samples or orders, material exchanges, need for special hat blocks or other custom equipment to create your hat, shipping delays, equipment failure, etc.) cannot constitute a default, and a void of your headwear order. You will receive your order as quickly as we are humanly able to.

DAMAGE IN SHIPPING

RKD makes every effort to insure the safe shipping of your order. However, once the merchandise leaves our warehouse and is in the hands of our shipping providers the condition of your order when it arrives at its destination is beyond our control. All our hats are Insured, so if you do receive a hat from us that is damaged in shipping, simply contact us to let us know what the problem is and return the hat in the original packaging, we will then determine how we can resolve the issue. If your order arrives damaged, it does not constitute in any way “defective” merchandise, and we will not refund the purchase price for said damage. Client understands, agrees and accepts that it is their responsibility to send the damaged merchandise back to RKD.

CLIENT CHANGES

RKD will in most cases send images of embroidery sew outs, screen print details and other trims and embellishments to client via e-mail for their approval. If the client continues to ask for changes to the said order, RKD will accept no responsibility for delays in production or shipping, and therefore the client agrees, accepts and understands that they cannot instigate any refund or chargeback. This is especially prevalent if changes made by the client are beyond the original scope of the order as stated on our official quote. Because conceptualization of designs are extremely subjective, and can be subject to infinite interpretation, Client agrees, accepts and understands that such disputes as to the artistic “matching” of the final RKD product with the original concept (in text and/or photo), shall be solely the discretion of RKD, and that our decision is final.
