Returns, Refunds & Exchanges
Most of our cherished customers are happy with the products they receive. At Viva La Vegan, we appreciate the difficulties of ordering online, especially clothing. Yes, we have sizing guides, yes we have awesome pictures that showcase the colour, style, and shape of garments but in those instances where you receive items that you are not happy with then we are here to help.
Advice on sizing
For those of you ordering clothing, we advise taking a look at the sizing guides. Even if you have brought from us before and the medium-sized tee fitted perfectly this time around with a different garment there may be variations in sizes due to different suppliers’ specifications. But more importantly, if you are in doubt please contact us either on live chat or by email at email@example.com.
Our returns address is Viva La Vegan, 18 Eider Drive, Apley, Shropshire, TF1 6TJ.
“Hi there, so sorry I’ve ordered the wrong item”
We accept that mistakes happen and that sometimes there may be a problem with items received not meeting your requirements and therefore we allow 30 days from the date of delivery for you to change your mind.
Please contact us in the first instance and we can discuss whether you would prefer an exchange (subject to stock availability) or a refund.
Whether it’s an exchange or a refund then we will need the product to be returned to us unused and in the same condition when we dispatched it to. Ideally, it should be in the same packaging as we sent it out. Though we are aware that many of our customers are so excited about receiving our parcels in the post that packaging can get damaged. If this is the case please repackage appropriately so that it will be safe during its return journey.
Once we are in receipt of the garment and it’s been inspected will then process requests for either an exchange or a refund. Please consider a tracked service as exchange / refund will only be given on items that arrive back to us safely. No refund will be given for returned items lost in the post.
The responsibility for the cost of postage of returning garments that are not faulty lies with the customer.
If you need advice on the cost of postage or which service to choose please contact us on live chat or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

SIZE & FIT GUIDE
Complete the compassionate look with this limited edition one-of-a-kind Vegan Army Reworked Jackets.
This jacket is truly vintage as the design remained unchanged since the 1950s right up to being decommissioned by the french military in the 1980s.
The French have always been a leading light in the fashion world and it would seem the military market also benefitted from strong designs. It really is a well-considered jacket in terms of fitting and practicality. Elasticated waist with plenty of pockets with zippers. With a panelled design, this should provide a solid fit.
Obviously, you’re not buying this garment for war or maybe you are – a war against cruelty to animals!! But fundamentally this does not need to be worn with military combat considered. For the fashionista, you can wear this true to size or oversized with the sleeves rolled up and anywhere in between.
Although the sizing for most of our vegan clothing is standardised such as small, medium, large, etc each of these garments may have been altered a number of times to fit the soldiers specifically. Therefore key differences may occur in arm lengths, drop lengths (the distance from the shoulder of the garment to its bottom hem) along with differences in chest sizes. Each of our reworked garments are to a degree unique and we would advise that careful measurements are taken to measure yourself.
We are trying something new and providing garment-specific sizing utilizing three measurements this being chest, length, and arm length which you can measure using the guide below.
Currently, in this design, we have 4 garments:-
A.) Small – Chest 18 ins/46 cm; Length 24 ins/61 cm; Arm Length 19.5 ins/49.5 cm
B.) Large -Chest 21.5 ins/54.5 cm; Length 28 ins/71 cm; Arm Length 22.5 ins/57 cm
