Neither Proper Cloth, nor its Associates warrant the accuracy, integrity, or completeness of the Content provided on the Site or the products or services offered for sale on the Site. Further, Proper Cloth makes no representation that Content provided on the Site is applicable or appropriate for use in locations outside of the United States. Proper Cloth specifically disclaims warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied, including but not limited to warranties of title, implied warranties of merchantability or warranties of fitness for a particular purpose. No oral advice or written information given by Proper Cloth or its Associates shall create a warranty. You expressly agree that your access to, viewing of, browsing, visiting or use of the Site is at your sole risk.
Under no circumstances shall Proper Cloth or its Associates be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages that result from the use of or inability to use the Site, including but not limited to reliance by a user on any information obtained at the Site, or that result from mistakes, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or e-mail, errors, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission, or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of God, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to Proper Cloth records, programs or services. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply whether in an action at law, including but not limited to contract, negligence, or other tortious action; or an action in equity, even if an authorized representative of Proper Cloth has been advised of or should have knowledge of the possibility of such damages. You hereby acknowledge that this paragraph shall apply to all Content, merchandise and services available through the Site. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Although we take steps to ensure the accuracy and completeness of product and third-party service descriptions posted on the Site, please refer to the manufacturer or Associates for details.

Fraudulent Activity and Gift Cards

Due to a recent increase in fraudulent activity, we would strongly discourage any customer from purchasing a gift certificate from any site other than www.propercloth.com.
Termination of Usage
We may terminate your access or suspend your right to access to all or part of the Site, without notice, for any conduct that we, in our sole discretion, believe is in violation of any applicable law, is in breach of these Terms and Conditions or is harmful to the interests of other users, Associates, or us. In addition, we reserve the right to refuse an order from any customer in our sole discretion.
Usage by Minors
This Site is not intended for or directed to persons who are minors (typically persons under the age of 18, depending on where you live). Because we cannot prohibit minors from accessing, viewing, browsing, visiting or using the Site, we must rely on parents, guardians and those responsible for supervising minors to decide which materials are appropriate for minors to view and/or purchase. By registering with this Site, purchasing products from us or providing us with any information, you represent to us that you are legally permitted to enter into a binding contract (18 years of age or older in most jurisdictions) or, if you are under the legal age of consent, you have the express permission from your parent or guardian and that any information you provide to us is not inaccurate, deceptive or misleading.
We require that all purchases be made either (i) by individuals who are not minors and who can legally enter into binding contracts (typically persons 18 years of age or older, depending on where you live), or (ii) by minors with the permission of a parent or guardian to purchase items on the Site.
If you access the Site from anywhere in the United States or Canada, you agree that the laws of the State of New York, USA, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Proper Cloth and/or its Associates.
If you access the Site from within the United States or Canada, any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site, to these Terms and Conditions, to our Privacy and Security Policy, to our advertising or solicitation practices or to products you purchase through the Site shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in New York, New York, USA, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Proper Cloth's intellectual property rights, Proper Cloth may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of New York, USA and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

Site Policies, Modification and Severability
Please review our other policies, such as our Privacy and Security Policy, Returns Policy, Shipping & Delivery Policy and others, all of which are incorporated herein by this reference and are posted on the Site. These policies also govern your visit to the Site. We reserve the right to make changes to the Site, policies, and these Terms and Conditions at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
How to Order Through The Site
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order ("Order Confirmation"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email confirming the shipment of your order (the "Shipping Confirmation"). A contract with us will only be formed when we send you the Shipping Confirmation. The contract will relate only to those products whose shipment we have confirmed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order in a separate Order Confirmation. We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time before we have accepted it and we may rescind our acceptance and cancel your order where there has been an obvious error in price or where the product is no longer in our or our third party fulfillment provider's inventory.
Prices and Availability Of Products
Prices and availability of products on the Site are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected when discovered. Our Site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Confirmation or a Shipping Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a pricing error.
On occasion, you may be able to place a product in your shopping cart and submit your order for processing, but your order is subsequently cancelled due to unavailability of product. You acknowledge that products may sell quickly and there may be a short period of time after an order has been submitted, but where the product is no longer available. You agree that we may cancel your order after you have received an Order Confirmation without penalty.
On very rare occasions, you may receive a Shipping Confirmation from us, but the product is no longer available in our or our third party fulfillment provider's inventory. You agree that we may rescind our acceptance and cancel your order without penalty if we are unable to ship the product you ordered due to unavailability.
The term shipping or ship includes the commencement of shipping items in an order for multiple purchases or where the item purchased consists of components that must be shipped separately. For example, your order may consist of (1) several different items, (2) a quantity of the same item, or, (3) a single item with several component parts the size of which might require them to be shipped in separate packages. In all such orders, we endeavor to ship out individual packages together so that they arrive at the same time; however, when that is not possible, we commence shipping by shipping individual packages in the order the soonest they are available and conditions permit. In these instances, our notification to you that your order has shipped, marks the time when shipping has commenced; it does not mean that all items in the order have shipped at that time. All packages sent have a separate tracking number and may be followed on the Order Status page. You agree that credit cards and debit cards are to be charged on the date of inventory reservation for the order, not the date of shipping.
Risk of Loss
All items purchased from Proper Cloth are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon tender of the item to the carrier.
Visitors to propercloth.com have the opportunity to invite their friends or contacts to become Proper Cloth customers and receive store credit.
In order to participate in the Proper Cloth refer-a-friend program, a visitor must first create a Proper Cloth account. The Proper Cloth account they create must have their real name information saved to the account. Individuals are prohibited using multiple accounts with regards to the refer-a-friend program.
The Proper Cloth refer-a-friend program works such that, each account holder is assigned a unique invitation URL (example: https://propercloth.com/i/5r0akx ). This invitation URL can then be shared with other potential customers. If customers create an account from an invitation URL and subsequently make their first shirt purchase, the owner of the invitation URL used will receive a $20 store credit added to their account. For example: User A creates an account, and then shares his unique invitation code with User B. User B creates a new account on this URL and then makes his first shirt purchase. User A will then receive a $20 store credit.
A “Qualified Referral” is defined as the first purchase made at propercloth.com (Proper Cloth) by a referred customer who has not previously purchased from Proper Cloth and who creates their account via another user's unique refer-a-friend invite link (example: https://propercloth.com/i/5r0akx ). Any additional or subsequent purchases made by the referred customer will not be Qualified Referrals.
The individual who was issued a Link by Proper Cloth will be considered the "Referring Customer" for all Qualified Referrals made using that Link.
Only one Qualified Referral can be earned for each Referred Customer. Proper Cloth has the right to set an annual limit on the number of Qualified Referrals earned by a single Referring Customer. Offer not valid and rewards are not payable for self-referrals, or fraudulent transactions. Offer is not redeemable for cash. Offer cannot be combined with other coupons, gift codes, gift certificates, or promotions. Offer cannot be combined with special event or affiliate program pricing discounts.
If a Referring Customer provides their unique refer-a-friend link to another person by email, the email must be created and distributed according to CAN SPAM guidelines. Spam and the use of Purchased or harvested lists is prohibited and will result in immediate termination of the Referring Customers account and deactivation of their refer-a-friend links.
Proper Cloth reserves the right to cancel the Refer-a-Friend Program or to change these terms and conditions at any time in its sole discretion.
Your order will be fulfilled within 1-week of the delivery date set out in the Shipping Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Shipping Confirmation, which could in exceptional circumstances be longer than 30 days.

Our liability for losses any international customer suffers as a result of us breaking these Terms and Conditions or anything else we do or do not do in connection with any order is strictly limited to the purchase price of the product you purchased and any losses which are a foreseeable consequence of us breaking the agreement.

We are not responsible for indirect losses which happen as a side effect of the main loss or damage and which are not foreseeable, including but not limited to: (a) loss of income or revenue; (b) loss of business; (c) loss of profits or contracts; (d) loss of anticipated savings; (e) loss of data; or (f) waste of management or office time however arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise.
This does not in any way limit or exclude any liability of us (a) under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987, (b) for breach of any condition as to title or quiet enjoyment implied by section 12 Sale of Goods Act 1979 or section 2 Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982; (c) for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or (d) for fraudulent misrepresentation.
Other than the warranties and other assurances we give you in these Terms and Conditions, Proper Cloth specifically disclaims all warranties, conditions and other terms of any kind, whether expressed or implied, including but not limited to implied terms of satisfactory quality or fitness for purpose. No oral advice or written information given by Proper Cloth shall create a warranty (unless made fraudulently).
