- Preorders- How Do They Work?
You‘re here because you want to know about preordering a release.
The latin prefix “PRE” means “before” and “order” is the action that you just did. You ORDERED BEFORE the release date. That means, you purchased or are about to purchase a record or sweet, exclusive bundle that has a street date in the future. This means you will not have your order shipped until the week leading up to the release date.
This date varies by product and will be on the item description page, and on your order confirmation email. We will not ship until the week leading up to the release date so please be aware of what this date will be. Postage options may prevent you from getting your order exactly on release date, but we will ship ON or BEFORE the release date.
- What are the measurements of your shirts?
We get asked this a lot. Rather than measure each individual item we have these broken down by category. We make “Regular” Shirts and “Slimfit” shirts.
Keep in mind, some sizing may vary, even within the same brand. This should get you started and you’ll get the same answer here as you would if you emailed us.
Important to note: These are for reference only. We do not guarantee that your shirt will measure exactly to these sizes and they may vary as much as 1” in either direction.

- I live outside of the United States, what should I expect when I order?
If you live outside of The United States and have to deal with customs, you’ve come to the right FAQ.
Shipping Methods & Info
International Economy- Using either Fedex or UPS international economy methods, this method typically takes 3-5 business days, but can be longer or shorter. This method is automatically insured and traceable.
International First Class or Airmail- Using the United States Post Office, this method typically takes anywhere from 7-90 days for delivery, depending on your location. While this is a more affordable option, it has its drawbacks such as not being traceable while in transit. This method is NOT insured, NOT traceable and we assume no refund responsibilities if your order does not arrive (Read below for more info).
When we ship an order out to you from LA, it can often take between 3 – 6 weeks to get to you, and occasionally longer. This is caused by a few things; how far you are, how it’s shipped, and of course, customs. Customs is where most of the delay is. It can be released in a day or in a month. It all depends on what kind of mood they‘re in.
Depending on your countries laws, you might have to pay an import tax. This is based on certain items being over a certain value. These taxes are our of our control and we cannot pre pay these taxes. Please contact your local customs people to find out if you have these taxes and how much they are for.
With that being said, we will not mark your package as a “Sample” or as a “gift“. They’ll catch us and you, and then we’ll all be screwed. So the best bet is to be honest.
