FAQ

1.PLACING ORDERS / E-MAIL PROBLEMS

I placed an order and/or sent a message, but haven’t heard from you.
What’s up with that? My browser is having trouble with your web site.
First, thank you for your order. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
We aren’t deliberately giving you the silent treatment.
If it’s been several days since you contacted us and you haven’t heard anything,
please email us again at customer@classicolabcoat.com
 We’ll reply as soon as possible.
Also, please check your junk folder to see if our response wound up there.
Sometimes,servers will automatically filter out commercial mail. Even ours.

 

My browser is having trouble with your web site.
It could be your browser’s encoding settings. Most of the time,
the trouble is due to an “Auto Select” feature that isn’t working properly.
To fix it, find your browser’s text encoding settings and change them from
the current settings to “Western”.That should clear up the problem.
If that still doesn’t help, try accessing our site using a different browser.
And if that doesn’t help, send us a message at customer@classicolabcoat.com describing your problem in detail.Include a screen shot, if you can.
We’ll have our IT geniuses figure out what’s happening,
and get back to you as soon as possible.

I need my order by a specific date because it's a gift / it’s what I want to wear when I accept my Nobel Prize. Can you guarantee delivery by a certain date?
Unfortunately, it’s hard to guarantee delivery dates because we have a build-to-order policy.
All our clothes are cut and sewn in Japan using traditional techniques. We don’t mass-produce.Sometimes, it can take a few weeks to finish and deliver your order.
However, sometimes we have a few additional items on hand. If time is of the essence, and we have your size, we may be able to ship one to you.
To talk with us about it, write to customer@classicolabcoat.com
By the way, congratulations on the Nobel Prize.

 

I’m concerned about owing import duties and taxes on my order. Can you mark my package as a gift, or fudge the declared value so I don't have to pay as much?
We understand your frustration, but we can’t go there. The law is the law, and we observe it. If we were to fudge the numbers, people would lose faith in us. Shortly thereafter, civilization would collapse. Thank you for understanding.

7.PRODUCTS & AVAILABILITY

How do I know which size is right for me?
Our clothes are fitted, so it’s important to have accurate measurements before you place your order. Compare your chest measurement to the chart on each product’s detail page.
The size that comes closest will give the best fit. (If you’re in-between sizes, order the next-highest.)
If this doesn’t help, contact us directly and we’ll work with you to find the right size.

 

How can I be sure the items I want are in stock before I order?
Because of the way our clothes are made, we maintain low inventories. All our clothes are cut and sewn in Japan, using traditional tailoring techniques.
We don’t mass-produce. While our policy ensures the highest quality, it also means we may not have your size in stock, and we’ll need to make it for you.
We do often have a few extras of each size, and if we do, we’ll be able to ship them to you immediately.
