Product availability

Items shown on this website may not always be in stock. If any of your chosen items are not in stock, you will be advised of our best estimate of availability and delivery date within 12 hours of placing your order.

Accepting orders and security

When you place an order, either online, by telephone or in writing, we will treat it as an offer to buy. If we accept your order, we will send you a confirmation email with your order number, at which point we make a legal contract with you. However, we will be entitled to refuse to accept your order if we feel it necessary, in which case we will email you as soon as we can to let you know.

All order details are confirmed by you when your order is placed, including the billing address, shipping address, garment size and choice of colour. When you receive your email confirmation, you will have an opportunity to check these details are correct to make any amendments before the order goes into production. You must contact us within 24 hours of placing your order to make any changes, after this period no changes can be made. Nautical Bits cannot replace or refund any orders that are incorrect if they have been placed with our Supplier according to the details you confirmed when the order was placed.

In deciding whether to accept your order we may use the information you have given to us, or we already hold about you, or which we receive from any enquiry we may make with various agencies, to confirm your identity. This assists us to protect you and us from fraudulent transactions. If we decline your offer on security grounds we may contact you to seek an alternative payment method.

Order processing

An order will not be processed until it has been paid in full. Orders are processed from the date and time of payment received, not the date and time it was placed. Orders paid for after 1pm GMT will be processed the next working day.


All prices exclude delivery and we ship worldwide. [View Shipping Information]

Deliveries in the UK mainland are contracted to outside carriers who deliver Mondays to Fridays (excluding public holidays) between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:30 PM. If you have a specific delivery request please contact us and we will do our best to meet your request.

A special, or next-day delivery service does not guarantee that you will receive your item the day after placing the order however does guarantee that you will receive the item the day after it has been dispatched.

Some deliveries must be signed for and you should keep your receipt. If goods are showing obvious signs of damage in transit upon receipt, please refuse to accept the delivery.


Due to the bespoke nature of most of the products we sell, all cancellations must be made within 24 hours of your order being placed. After this time, your order will have entered production.

Transit damage

If your purchase is showing obvious signs of transit damage upon delivery, please refuse to accept delivery and notify us immediately. If damage is only evident upon opening of packaging, then you must inform us within 48 hours of receipt. In either case, we will then arrange the re-delivery of replacement goods as soon as possible.

Faulty goods

If your goods develop a fault within 28 days of delivery (including goods delivered with a print or manufacturing fault), the goods may be returned for either refund in full or replacement. Replacement only is offered after 28 days and before 12 months. In all queries relating to faulty goods, we require customers to provide photographic evidence so we can investigate the issue.
