Darcy Clothing

We trade chiefly with costume professionals. We are however pleased to take orders from anyone with an interest in historic clothing as our stock is all made by established manufacturers and therefore suitable for daily wear. 

While we are delighted to sell our clothes to women as well as men it is worth noting that the fit is not always suited to the female form. Our trousers really only work on women with similar hip and waist measurements. We apologise about this but we are primarily a menswear supplier.


Formal shirts are sold by necksize which is measured at the base of the neck. The majority of shirts are made 1/2" larger to allow for shrinkage. The majority of the sleeve lengths are designed to be on the long side as we find this is popular with many of our customers.

Please note that as with all clothing no measurements can be 100% accurate. There will always be a variation as clothing is not manufactured to engineering standards



We operate a secure credit card system to handle online orders, using SagePay. We are happy to take purchase orders from recognised companies. Please see the "Pay by purchase order" button for details. Contact us either by e-mail on sales@darcyclothing.com or phone 01273 471586

Prices / VAT

Please note that prices do not include VAT. This will be added in the checkout stage.

Postage and packing (shipping)

All orders are delivered by the Royal Mail or courier depending on the value of your goods and the chosen option at checkout. This cost will be added after the checkout button. Please contact us for details of worldwide delivery charges. You may be subject to import duties or taxes, which are levied once your shipment reaches your country, if it is outside of the EEC. These additional charges are to be borne by you. We have no control over these charges and we can not predict when they may occur. This is because customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further details. For certain orders, the carriage added on the web site is insufficient. Should this happen we will contact you about the additional cost. If we do require extra payment from you and your shipping is selected as express, your order will be held for a maximum of three days before being sent standard shipping if this is possible. We will not send out garments without the full amount required to do so.

Delivery Times

Most items will be in stock and will be dispatched the day after your order is received. Otherwise, please allow 7-10 days.

All exchanges from outside United Kingdom must be pre-authorized by us and packages must be marked as ‘RETURNED BRITISH GOODS’ & ‘NO VAT OR DUTY DUE’ in order to avoid taxes. We reserve the right to deduct customs duty or clearance fees incurred by us from international returns.
