Returns & Exchanges

At Peter Christian, we want you to be completely happy with your purchase. If you wish to return an item for any reason, the following sections provide helpful information.

Our Returns Policy

All items being returned or exchanged must be in as-new condition and preferably in their original packaging (this excludes items that are faulty). Unwanted items must be returned within a reasonable time (usually 28 days).

We cannot offer refunds or exchanges on:

  • Items that have been visibly worn or used
  • Underwear or swimwear
  • Items that have been altered, including items we altered specifically for you

If you return an item to us for refund, it can take up to 7 days from the day we receive the item to process your refund.

If an item is faulty or you are unsure whether an item is eligible for return please call our customer care team on 01273 492 287 (Monday–Friday 9am–5pm) or email us at: [email protected]

How to return or exchange an item

If you wish to return an item for any reason we promise to exchange it, or to return your money without a fuss. Please be aware this is subject to goods being in as-new condition, except if faulty. Please return unwanted items within 28 days of purchase.

If you return an item to us for refund, it can take up to 7 days from the day we receive the item to process your refund.

How do I return an item?
  1. Place the items you wish to return back into the box or bag.
  2. Complete the returns form on the reverse side of your delivery note. If you no longer have the delivery note, you can download and print a new returns form using the link below.
  3. State your name, address and postcode, order number (if known), the reason for return and whether you would like an exchange or refund.
  4. Include a contact telephone number in case we need to call you.
  5. Detach the return address label from the returns form. Please note that postage is prepaid for UK customers only.
  6. Place the completed returns form inside the parcel.
  7. Stick the return address label securely to the parcel, covering the previous address. Ensure that no part of the previous address is visible.
  8. Take the parcel to your nearest Post Office and ask for a 'Proof of Posting' receipt which you should retain until we have confirmed receipt or resolved the matter to your satisfaction.

If you have lost your delivery note, you can print a new returns form here in PDF format (document opens in a new window).


Tracking a returned item

  1. When handing over your parcel at the Post Office, ask for a 'Proof of Posting' slip.
  2. Visit the Royal Mail website and select 'Track Your Item'.
  3. Enter in the barcode number which you can find on your 'Proof of Postage' slip.
  4. The progress of the parcel will be displayed.

For exchange items, as long as the requested replacement is in stock, dispatch will normally be within 2 to 3 days. If the exchange item requires alteration it may require a further 3 working days. Please allow 5 working days for dispatch during busy periods. If the requested item is out of stock, it will be sent out to you as soon as we receive more stock.


When returning your item, the way you originally paid for the purchase will determine how you will be refunded. It can take up to 7 days from the day we receive the item to process your refund.

Credit/Debit card

If you paid by credit or debit card, we will refund the same card originally used to place and pay for the order.


If you paid for your order with PayPal we will refund into your PayPal account.

Amazon Payments

Amazon payment refunds are refunded through your Amazon account.


Refunds of orders by cheque will be refunded by cheque, but these are done fortnightly so may take a little longer.

International Returns

The information in this section is supplemental to that shown in the preceeding sections.

What is the returns policy for international orders?

If your order is faulty or not as described, please contact [email protected] or call +44 01273 492 287 (Monday–Friday 9am–5pm UK time). We will then decide whether we need the item to be returned to us or if photographic evidence will suffice.

Refunds will be in sterling, and may therefore not equate exactly to the amount you originally paid, due to fluctuating exchange rates.

How do I return an item?

Please note that you’ll need to bear the cost of return postage. Follow the instructions on our delivery note and return it to us at Peter Christian, 29 Star Estate, Partridge Green, West Sussex, RH13 8RA, United Kingdom. Please return unwanted items within 28 days of purchase.

Whatever your reason for returning goods, please ensure that you obtain proof of postage from your post office and use a tracked delivery service.

Returning items from outside the EU

When returning items from outside the EU please be sure to state 'Returns Department' prominently at the top of the address and declare the goods as 'returns' to the couriers/postal service. This will prevent your return being delayed by UK Customs, allowing us to process it promptly.

If you don't do this then your parcel may be held by UK Customs for processing which can take up to 28 days to complete. This will lead to an invoice for VAT plus handling (roughly 20% of the returns value) which we will pass on to you and must be paid before customs will release the parcel to us. This is a non-refundable charge.

When will I receive a refund?

It can take up to 7 days from the day we receive the item to process your refund. Refunded cheques may take a little longer.
