TeenageGrandpa is taking a short break

Note from shop owner It looks like Teenage Grandpa will be on vacation for quite some time.

Thanks to all my patrons and everyone who wore one of my creations with pride... I will be back, but right now I need to focus on another watch related enterprise.

Thank you all, and keep on rockin' in the free world.

If you are unhappy with your purchase, I would love to set things right. Please contact me immediately as I am happy to provide a full refund upon return of the item.

WATCH STRAPS
If you are returning a watch strap, it must not have been buckled or worn at any point prior to it's return. Buckling the strap, even once, will leave a permanent crease in the band and make it unfit for finding a new owner. Please make sure you are pleased with your strap and that it fits your watch before fitting it to the head of your timepiece.

When ordering a strap it's crucial you get the correct lug measurements, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about taking measurements.

CUSTOM WATCH STRAPS
Due to the specifics of your order, custom watch straps are a typically non-refundable item. However, if you are truly unhappy with your finished strap please contact me and I will do my best to work something out.

POCKET SQUARES
Please make sure you understand the size and finish of every pocket square you order.

Pocket Squares are only refundable within 30 days of your order, and must be returned in it's original condition. This means undamaged, unworn and returned as it was shipped to you in it's original packaging.

Otherwise, it's up to you whether or not you think Uncle Bill will find any sort of whimsical humor in our 'Shanky Hanky' after spending a 5 year stretch on Rikers Island. Perhaps go with a 'Turbo Pizza' instead.

DAMAGES, LOSSES, ETC.
We are not responsible for any packages that arrive opened by customs. Any damage to the packaging and initial presentation of your purchase is unfortunate, but if the item itself is unharmed we hope you can still enjoy it.

If a product arrives and is damaged due to any fault of our own please send us a message and I will help rectify any reasonable and verifiable situation. This is done on a case by case basis.

Losses are also dealt with on a case by case basis. If you do not receive your item within 30 days, please file a lost-claim via our Etsy shop mailbox with LOST CLAIM in the subject line.

Additional policies and FAQs
ORDERING A STRAP – PLEASE READ!
Teenage Grandpa straps do not ship with any tubes, spring bars, or any other hardware other than what is pictured in the listing. This is to avoid any confusion, or any wrongful and potentially damaging installations* when affixing your strap.

If you require spring bars or tubes with your shipment, please let me know and I will gladly include what you need with your order, or help you source an uncommon piece of hardware if needed.

(*The ol' spring bar through the tube setup mistake is far too common, and can ruin your strap and/or watch. A sad day for everyone involved!)

When ordering a strap it's crucial you get the correct lug measurements, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about taking measurements.

CUSTOM WORK
Want a custom Teenage Grandpa strap? If you have a unique or much loved timepiece, you should definitely have a strap that makes you want to stare at it dreamily before you go to bed at night.

Please start a direct conversation with me to get the ball rolling. It is helpful for you to send me as much info about the watch as possible, including the make and measurements, as well as a photo. With this info, we can work together to create something just for you. Also, please note that all of my straps are 100% hand made, which does influence what is possible for me to create as I only work with old-school tools – No machines at my workbench!

After the details and price have been agreed upon, I will post a listing just for you and we can proceed with payment. As each custom item is different, I am also happy to post options from previous work that I think might be comparable or fit your vision.
