Returns Policy

Simmons Bilt offer a full bespoke service on all our leather jackets but please keep in mind each jacket is individually handcrafted by one of our specialist artisans and leather is a natural product and can stretch during production, so whilst every effort is made to construct your jacket to your exact specifications there is a possibility there may be margin of millimeters between your given measurements and the finished product.
We will accept a return of a custom jacket if it is shown to have a defect, (natural characteristics in the leather are not classed as defects), there has been a production error or there is an unacceptable margin between the measurements provided against the finished garment measurements. (We would typically take the view that 14mm is acceptable given the traditional production techniques we employ and the raw materials used although all queries will be reviewed individually)


Zips are guaranteed for 1 year
