Announcement   A big thanks to Threads Magazine for featuring our items on its 2016 Gift Recommendations!

I am currently trying to come up with a better solution for displaying all of the available velveteen fabrics for creating tailor's bucks. What I usually show is just a fraction of the colors, and matching the swatch to the roll is often difficult! Until then, simply describe the color you would like and I'll attempt to match it as closely as possible from the store with pictures in follow-up conversation.

This item was a special request, which I see that the seller has made a standard item on Etsy. The seller (who is also the fabricator of this item) puts his heart and soul into each piece. Communication is excellent. He is both craftsman and artisan, with a keen eye to tailoring needs. I cannot say enough good things about both the seller and the product, which suits my needs exactly. An absolutely superb transaction.

I must say: this is an extraordinary tool and very well-made; thank you so very much! The basic Full-Size Pressing Buck is larger what I had imagined, but I am very, very happy!. Finding such a tool isn't easy (I've tried). This Buck is solidly made and well-worth the cost.

I received my pressing buck,that was made to order, and am thrilled. Using it is fantastic, especially compared to a small ham. This is a tool that you need if you sew. The quality is perfect. So beautiful and useful.

Handcrafted clothes deserve handcrafted tools to make them by! The Brass & Mortar Etsy Store does just that, putting quality and elegance into every item it creates, and gives you that fine touch of personalization for your home sewing room or studio.

Brass & Mortar is an individual-run tailoring studio in Reno, NV, by a nutcase with multiple voices in his head. We specialize in traditional, vintage, anachronistic tastes in gentlemen's clothing. Please note: Due to limitations in Etsy's custom orders functionality, custom clothing is not sold through Etsy but on an individual commission basis directly through the proprietor.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
Payments are of course handled directly through Etsy, and are made via PayPal. Considering these are low-volume made-on-demand items, there is no direct checkout/Credit Card Processing.

If orders need to be cancelled, please let me know ASAP. I will charge for materials purchased (such as wood, fabric, hardware) upon cancellation.
Shipping
Thanks to the updated Etsy-generated shipping options, this process is mostly streamlined and straight forward. Shipping costs are listed and included with the item during purchase. I go with USPS Priority Mail by default for its automatic insurance and low cost. I can provide additional options on demand.

Some items require limited assembly, usually to avoid bulky or awkward box shapes and to protect items during shipping. Etsy provides confirmation of shipment and tracking number on the day the label is generated and printed.
Refunds and Exchanges
These are customized items. While I am willing to work with my customers for items they are dissatisfied with, I cannot offer refunds for custom-made items. To avoid these sort of issues, I make it a point to keep in good contact with customers and give progress pictures of items during their creation.

Please inform of us damaged items immediately upon receipt!
Additional policies and FAQs
Most, if not all of the items listed are custom made to order. With the many customization options available, this usually means materials are purchased on demand to meet customer specifications. All of the items listed are made from scratch unless otherwise indicated, thus some time for completion is needed before shipping. Shipping time can vary depending on the complexity of the item being created. I will communicate with you during the creation process to keep you informed.
