The level of stock availability shown will be updated regularly but it does not guarantee that the product checked will be available when you visit the specified store.
When you place an item into your basket, that item is specifically reserved to you for a time of 60 minutes. In the event of prolonged inactivity in the basket (60 minutes and above) this will cause your selection of goods to be released back into stock. In such case, if you go back to the checkout your selection may not be available anymore.
Pre- Order & Waiting List
The Terms in this Section apply to any purchase of Pre-Order Products (as defined below)
From time to time we may invite you to pre-order selected Products on the Site before they are available to purchase from Ralph & Russo Boutiques or on other platforms ("PRE-ORDER PRODUCTS"). In the event that we do so please note that the delivery options offered on the Platforms shall not apply to orders of Pre-Order Products. Pre-Order Products will be shipped between 4-12 weeks from the date that the order is placed (except for Pre-Order Products that are from the runway collection (a “RUNWAY PRE-ORDER PRODUCT”), which will be shipped between 6-8 months from the date that the order is placed) and the estimated date that the Pre-Order Product will be dispatched to you will be displayed in the checkout process as you submit your order.
You agree that if you order a Pre-Order Product, you will be charged shortly after you place your order and before your item is dispatched. Notwithstanding the foregoing, your credit/debit card account or payment method may reflect the deduction of the purchase price immediately upon placing the order. Please note your order is not confirmed until payment has been taken.
Please note that if you order a Runway Pre-Order Product, the product you receive may vary (including fit, appearance, sizing and composition) from the item displayed on the Platforms. This does not affect your right to cancel or return Runway Pre-Order Products
Occasionally however, we may be waiting for shipments from our manufactures for certain key pieces. Consequently you may from time to time be given the possibility of making an Advance Payment for certain items in which case you are able to make an Advance Purchase. This will ensure that you receive this item in priority once the stock has been delivered to Ralph & Russo. Ralph & Russo will only take Advance Purchase orders for stock that has been scheduled for production. Your rights regarding Advance Purchase are the same as those for any other purchase at Ralph & Russo. Alternatively, you may simply choose to register your email address for notification of arrival of the selected merchandise not held in stock.
Items received into stock may be pre-allocated to satisfy Advance Payment orders and customers making Advance Payments will receive items in priority to customers on the Waiting List or customers ordering through the Site for immediate delivery. Please be aware that we may be unable to deliver selected Advance Payment merchandise due to production problems or quality check issues identified when we receive an order into stock. In these circumstances we will notify you by email and refund the Advance Payment to your credit/debit card within thirty days of being advised that merchandise has become unavailable.
If you have registered your email address for notification of the arrival of a specific product featured on our Site, we will attempt to notify you by email within 48 hours of the product becoming available on the Site. Please be aware that on occasion certain products that are in particularly high demand will sell out during this period.
Ralph & Russo will store a record of your transactions for a minimum of one year.
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
When you have selected your preferred delivery method from those offered for your selected shipping destination and provided your order has been accepted by us, your order shall be processed by us and we will endeavour to dispatch your order within 1-2 working days or as otherwise specified in the checkout process as you submit your order.
Deliveries are made by our trusted couriers and take place on Monday to Saturday (or other normal working week days in countries that do not follow a Western pattern of working week), excluding bank and public holidays, usually within the hours of 8am and 5pm. It is not possible to specify a precise time at which a delivery will take place.
Please note that there are a number of UK postcodes to which we cannot deliver using the F90, SDD, on a next day, Saturday, Yacht, or Private Airport delivery options. Please see Postcode Restrictions. If your delivery address is geographically remote, for example certain outlying islands or other isolated locations, it is possible that we may not be able to deliver there. If that is the case, we will notify you before we accept your order. We reserve the right not to deliver to any country that is prohibited by applicable export laws. Orders cannot be delivered to PO Box or similar addresses. There may be additional restrictions or exclusions in respect to other countries (please refer to the ‘Current Excluded Shipping Territories section below) or of specific addresses in countries to which we ship. These may change from time to time. We shall endeavour to notify you of such restrictions but this may not be possible until we have received your order. Orders received after any “cut off” or “last order” time or received on a day which is not a working day (that is any day on which the banks are open for business in London which is not a Saturday or a Sunday, will be processed on the next working day). Estimated delivery times will be calculated from the date on which the order is placed, unless otherwise specified.
Where you have selected any of the delivery services offered by Ralph & Russo, and your order has been accepted by us, your sole remedy for any failure by Ralph & Russo to dispatch your order in time for delivery within the relevant estimated delivery times for your shipping destination and selected delivery method shall be your right to cancel the relevant order and receive a full refund of any monies paid to us in respect of that order.
Please note that the courier may require deliveries to be signed for.
If the product(S) you are ordering contain certain exotic animal skins or fur, is being shipped from the USA or EU to a region outside of these economic zones, your delivery will take longer (by approximately 2 – 6 weeks on top of the destinations standard delivery time), as we have to obtain licenses (CITE) for the export and import of the products in accordance with international treaties. Certain countries may also require other certification or information in order for your order to be delivered, which again may delay your delivery (by approximately 7 days on top of the destinations standard delivery time). If we are unable to obtain the relevant documentation required for your delivery, we may need to cancel your order. In some instances, you the buyer, may have to purchase specific permits in order for to ship your item and for it to be released from the Customs Unit in your specific jurisdiction.
Please note that certain delivery options will not be available across all our Platforms.
Your order will be delivered to the delivery address you specify when placing your order. We cannot be held responsible if that delivery address is incorrect or incomplete.
Products comprised within the same order cannot be delivered to different addresses.
We aim to dispatch all orders within 24 hours, or 48 hours during sale periods. Delivery times appearing on the site are estimates and are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. In any event, we will deliver the goods to you within 30 days of the day on which we accept your order. Ralph & Russo is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.
If delivery is delayed by any event outside of our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel your order and we will give you a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received.
If you order Product(s) for international delivery, they may be opened and inspected by customs authorities and may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. In the event that you return an item, the import duties will be refunded if they were originally included in the purchase price. If they were not included then you will be responsible for reclaiming duty directly from your local customs office. Similarly if you are located outside of the EU you will be required to pay additional taxes and duties on exchange items where they were not included within the original price paid.
Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Product(s) are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
