Shipping and Returns Policy

RETURNS, REFUND AND EXCHANGE POLICY*

In accordance with the ACCC guidelines Manteau Noir is NOT required by law to provide a refund or replacement if you change your mind or if you select the incorrect size. Outside of items with a major problem or fault (as detailed below) Manteau Noir does not have to offer a refund, return or exchange on any item.
Our website has detailed sizing information and our staff are more than happy to take additional measurements for you. Please call the store 03 5348 1902 to talk to a member of our team if you need any additional sizing information.

Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds, credit notes or exchange on goods purchased in-store or delivered more than 7 days from the customer receiving the item (if by mail) or from purchase in-store (unless the item is faulty).

REFUNDS

Manteau Noir will offer a refund or exchange if an item has a major problem or fault. This is when the item: has a problem that would have stopped you from buying the item if you had known about it; is unsafe; is significantly different from the sample or description; and, doesn’t do what we said it would, or what you asked for and can’t be easily fixed.

Alternatively, you can choose to keep the item and we will compensate you for any drop in value. If the problem is not major, we will repair the item within a reasonable time. If it is can not be repaired in a reasonable time you can choose a refund or replacement. Please keep your proof of purchase—e.g. your receipt.

RETURNS / CHANGE OF MIND

Our return policy lasts 7 days from receipt of goods. For online customers this is 7 days from when your order arrives.

If the product or garment you have purchased is not suitable, we will be pleased to offer you an exchange or credit note based on the criteria below. If, once your order arrives, you feel that the style, sizing or colour is incorrect and wish to exchange the garment for another size, colour or another style please contact Manteau Noir on 03 5348 1902 or team@manteaunoir.com.au. Please note you must receive approval prior to sending your item back to us.

For clothing, to be eligible for a return, your garment must be unworn, with labels still attached and in the original packaging. Any garment that has been altered, smells of perfume or deodorant or is marked in any way, cannot be returned. To avoid damage, remove jewellery before trying garments on and leave all swing tags and accessories attached to the garment. This does not mean that you cannot try on your new purchase, just that we cannot accept any items that show signs of wear or use or have been washed or dry cleaned.

Any non-clothing items must be unused and in their original packaging. Any sign of use or wear will disqualify the item from being returned or exchanged.
