No Quibble Guarantee
We're so confident about the quality of our products, we offer a full No Quibble Guarantee.
If for any reason you're not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can exchange it for something else or get a full refund if you return it in accordance with our terms and conditions outlined below.
Simply return any unused items to us, with tags attached and a valid receipt or invoice, within 30 days of receiving the order (See Exchanges and Returns below).
You can use our Self-Serve Returns portal to set this up if you like? Or, simply email us firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your plans. For returns after this period has elapsed, please see below for more info.
***The only exceptions to this are gift vouchers, altered and special-order/custom items; these are non-refundable***
Special Order and Custom items (a purchase arranged directly with us that is outwith our normal ready-to-wear stock):
These are strictly non-refundable, non-exchangeable and not able to be modified due to the fact they have been specially manufactured for you. Any and all modifications including size and style changes are to be done by your local tailor.
Please note that after selecting your custom size at the checkout, our seamstresses will be in touch to request your measurements. Failure to provide details upon request will result in your custom garment being tailored to the specifications outlined on our standard size chart. Therefore, if you choose to check out with a UK size 18 and you do not respond within 7 days after our request for further details, your garment will be produced to the size chart's UK size 18 specifications.
If you have a note about your cloth choice, please be aware that different browsers and screens may render colours differently. If you have chosen to proceed with your custom garment and you have opted to not request a swatch, and later decide upon receipt of your garment that it is not what you expected, this in no way constitutes grounds for return, exchange or modification of the garment. We urge you to request a swatch of the cloth and to satisfy yourself that you are delighted with your choice.
If you ask for a refund on a sale item, your refund will be the price you paid for it. This will be the case even if the sale has ended and it's returned to its original price.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, discount codes cannot be applied to already reduced items. Transactions where this is attempted will be voided.
From time to time various promotions and/or discounts are made available to our valuable customers. These promotional codes, offers and discounts are individual and are not able to be combined on any one transaction. Unless stated otherwise, codes are valid for a single transaction only. Discount codes only apply to full-price items.

We know the vast majority of you are wonderful and loyal Great Scot customers but sadly, there are a few people who are spoiling the fun. For example, some people are ordering and returning large amounts of clothing - more than even the most loyal Great Scotter would order and some are wearing their Great Scot styles out and about, then returning them later for a refund.
By cutting down on wasteful and unnecessary returns and to avoid the exploitation of our generous returns policy, we can maintain our great quality and service, do our bit to help the environment and of course find ways to make your Great Scot experience even better!
So please don't worry, you can still buy more than one size or colour, and yes, you can make returns if you don't like something or it doesn't look or fit right.
However, a customer can no longer buy and then wear clothes socially and then send them back and expect to get a refund.
We reserve our right to suspend an account if we suspect the return shows any signs of being worn and /or the tags removed/replaced before the item was returned or if the account has returned too many items
If your account is suspended and you don't think it should have been, you can email or chat to our Customer Care Team
Once your return is received and acceptable to us, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. Your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within 5-10 days. If you receive a refund, the cost of shipping in most cases will be deducted from your refund.
You’ll get a full refund if you return your item within 30 days of you receiving the original order.
If you return your item between 31 and 45 days you'll get a gift voucher as your refund.
We don't accept returns for unwanted items after the relevant returns period above. If you try to make a return, we may have to send it back to your default delivery address and ask you to cover the delivery costs.
Please note: If you make a purchase using the Paypal option, then depending on the method of payment used it may take up to 30 days to receive your refund. This is to do with the way Paypal works, and Great Scot can have no bearing on their Terms & Conditions. Please ensure you are familiar with Paypal's policies before making your purchase.
Shipping costs are non-refundable, therefore when you receive your refund, the cost of shipping will be deducted from the total.
Late or missing refunds (if applicable)
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.
Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of the above and you still have not received your refund, please contact us at
If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.
If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and he/she will find out about your return.
