Announcement    IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT SIZING, PLEASE READ:
All sizes are based on chest girth in inches.
A size 40 has a 40" chest.

1.Measure chest girth at it's briefest, while holding in a deep breath (exclude arms)
2. Add approximately 1 or 2 to the measured value to get a comfortable fit .

(If the waist is significantly larger then pick size based upon waist measurement, not chest girth )

If you need larger than the listed sizes I can make it way larger if you contact me (currently I'm unable to add more sizes to the listing's selection box due to a website bug)

You may also be able to determine an ideal size by choosing your most commonly worn T-shirt size.

Our size chart corresponds with major US t-shirt sizes, although I recommend the chest measurement method.

Please, do not include shoulders if you measure chest (or waist if that is briefer )
Please, do not pick size based on trousers size or any manufacturers arbitrary suit sizing.

About RolandMode

Sales 3,162
On Etsy since 2012

I wanted to share a few thoughts about handmade clothing. I'm going to present it in a Q and A format .

"Do you really make these yourself?"
The items you see in my shop are all made by me, one by one by hand.
Handmade is a murky term, factory products are technically handmade too, but those items are made in large quantities on a streamlined factory line where every seamstress does one part of the job . Large volume manufacturing does not allow nearly risk free space for experimentation.
A customer pointed out to me that I'm an experimental clothing artist, which was a title I did not want to use before. It is true some of my items are experimental , tentative like, but they all work and won't fell apart, nothing weird is going to happen .
I added head mounted go-pro video footage, a few outtakes that gives insight into the fabrication process.

"I love your items but they are so expensive, why ? "
Expensive is quiet a relative term,
I am offering a sweatshop labor and corporation free authentic purchasing experience.
You will be speaking to me if you hit the 'Contact Seller' button, not an employee of a large business who can't do anything except inform you politely that he or she can't do anything to solve your problem or fulfill a special request.
I make every piece one by one. Keep in mind the price includes premium customer service .
If you want slight modifications to your item, message me before placing an order.

"Shipping is expensive I want free shipping"
Free shipping is a marketing gimmick, the only advantage is that you get a compact price, no further fees apply.
If you see free shipping anywhere, that only means the seller includes the shipping price in the overall price. It's built in, not free.
The reason I don't offer "Free shipping" because there are significant difference in price let's say between a package to the US and a package to Australia.

Why don't I make more women's clothing ?
Women's clothes is such a large market with cut-throat competition and my mind is more tuned into making men's clothing. However I get a significant amount of women buying my clothes for themselves without asking any questions.

Please, do no not leave negative feedback or start dispute cases before you contact me about the issue.
Payment
The payment processors, Etsy or Paypal keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Shipping
Please, keep in mind that I have processing time of about 10 days in average, which means a time range I can schedule the construction of the items you have ordered.
In very urgent cases I can offer priority making and expedited shipping for an extra fee.

I'm using UPS to deliver the packages here are the following estimated shipping times:
North America: 1-4 business days
Europe: 1-2 business days

You are welcome to add your contact number to the order, only the shipping provider's driver or customer service will use that number to arrange or reschedule the delivery, I do not conduct international phone calls.

You can change the delivery address, but if the item has been shipped there is no guarantee that the change can take place in time.

Buyers are responsible paying any customs fees during import, EU orders are duty free, while I've never heard any hiccups or delays during import to US or Canada.

'Direct delivery only' shipping upgrade means that only you can sign for the package, feel free to leave phone number in one of the address lines.

*(except gloves where it's an optional shipping upgrade, if you add gloves to any other larger item, you don't need to pay for the upgrade)

I need to ship certain item's by Mail, in some cases UPS charges an unexpected Remote Location Surcharge, which I can't calculate into the price beforehand, in a case like that I contact you to decide whether you want to pay the surcharge or you are fine with the slower but cheaper Mail delivery.

For tracking information, please keep on eye on your purchases page.
Additional policies and FAQs
Seller Privacy Policy
I do not display my name, business details ,phone number and financial information publicly, that information is visible to customers appropriate personnel only .

FAQ:
What is your average turnaround time to US / Europe ?

If you are located in North America the average turnaround time is 10-15 days altogether, from day of purchase to day of delivery.
If you are located in Europe, the average turnaround is 8-13 days.

Custom and personalized orders

For custom request on existing listing I rarely accept requests for different color, but other construction type modifications like a hoodie without hood or sleeveless coat with sleeves is most likely going to be accepted.

I'm a musician / producer / from a band / filmmaker / photographer / blogger / game developer / stylist / youtuber / redditor / influencer etc. , can you give me major discounts or free items in exchange for crediting your shop ?

Normally, I won't hand out free or discounted items in exchange for a promise of credits or promotion .
I'd consider it if you have a larger audience who would probably like the products I'm selling.

I saw this item in your shop and I can't find it now.

Not all items are available at all times, availability could depend on shortage of required fabric or material for example and sometimes certain listings expire after 4 months.

My are arms are very long , can you make my order to have longer sleeves ?

I get this concern very often, your arm is most likely not disproportionately long, it is just most manufacturers tend to make their items fit average or shorter heights.
So probably the arms are not disproportionately long, but the sleeves are short for the person's higher than average height .

Do you have a showroom ? Can I meet you in person ? Can I call you on the phone ?

I don't have a brick and mortar store or a showroom yet. I don't meet customers and I can't deliver items myself even in my local 100mile radius. I do not conduct international phone calls. The only exception to this is either negotiating or completing a deal that contains very high end items or large volume of regular items.

Wholesale availability

As of right now I don't have the capacity to offer bulk orders for your store, event or company staff. I'm looking for partners to produce my items in higher volume, so I can offer bulk orders to my customers. Bulk order is when someone orders identical models in the same size or sizes.
