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.

Sizes

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.

Purchasing

We operate a secure credit card system to handle online orders. 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.

We are obliged to charge VAT on Carriage because it is classed as a service (Post and Packing) and therefore attracts tax according to HMRC regulations.

As of 1st January 2021, the UK is no longer part of the EU. From this date, customers from outside of the UK will not be charged UK VAT at the point of purchase, but may be liable for duty and/ or VAT charges once the goods have been shipped. This will be according to the rules in your country. 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 or how much they will be. This is because customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further details. 

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.
