4: Buying Online
The customer chooses in "our garments" catalog a style of his choice, after selecting the customer has the choice of different variations for this style for example :

  • washing 
  • fabric
  • leather belt
  • ....

these variations depend on the style and can influence the price, aside from these variations the customer has to enter also measurements specific for the chosen style, they appear automatically on the screen.
for MTM (made to measure) garments these measurements  are  measurements related to the wearer (body), measurements related to the style and oversize measurements related to the style (to  define the fitting)  for example :

  • VAL110 circumference of belt
  • VAL120 side length
  • VAL 1000 oversize  Belt
  • .....

for STD (standard sized) garments these measurements are measurements related to the style  for example :

  • waist 
  • innerleglength
  • ....

for these STD garments, a measurement chart can be consulted for each style, in which all the detailed measurements are consultable. After entering all the requested measurements the system will calculate and show the new price. If the customer wants to continue he can add the selection to the cart. this cart can be consulted and changed (adding or deleting articles). If the customer wants to proceed and buy the selected product he can continue to the checkout, however from now on we need the customer to log in to our system as an authenticated user otherwise the "checkout button" will not appear. In the Checkout the customer will have to enter the data for shipment, address ...and the system will also ask for specific wearer related (body) measurements so that we can construct the pattern for the garments (MTM) for example :

  • VAL10  body length
  • VAL20  circumference of hips
  • ...

For both versions STD as MTM, we use a tolerance of 3% on all dimensions  and check these dimensions before departure of our goods, however, by the fact that we work with 100% natural raw materials and we don't know the washing conditions and wearing conditions and humidity conditions at the customer, we will not accept any complaint about dimensions.
All the measurements data is kept and can be used again in case of later purchases without having to enter them again.
After this, in the control window all the data of the order is visualized again and the customer can continue with the payment or not, this can be done according to the payment methods we have mentioned  at the bottom of all web pages, please note these methods can vary country by country.
- via credit card
- via bank card
- by bank transfer to account number BE62 1030 5237 9361
Godfrieds is entitled to refuse an order due to a serious shortcoming of the Customer with regard to orders in which the Customer is involved.

5: Processing Orders and Delivery

After payment, the system generates an order number and a confirmation email is sent to the customer.
After this payment, we start the production of the clothing that we normally send to the customer within 7 working days. If due to lack of raw materials, or other factors that may affect our delivery period, the delivery period will not be met, we will inform the customer of this, under no circumstances will the customer be able to demand compensation for this, if Godfrieds so wishes he can cancel the purchase and refund the already paid price.
For all our shipments we use the services of Bpost where the customer has a choice from their (Bpost) package of delivery options, the follow-up of the shipment can also be followed on the Bpost website. As mentioned before, the shipping costs are included in the price and are only delivered within the Benelux. The delivery times are therefore according to these as handled by Bpost.
Any visible damage and/or qualitative deficiency of an article or other defects in the delivery must be reported to Godfrieds immediately by the Customer.
The risk of loss or damage passes to the Customer from the moment he (or a third party designated by him, which is not the carrier) has received the goods physically. However, the risk already passes to the Customer upon delivery to the carrier, if the carrier of the Customer has been instructed to transport the goods and this choice was not offered by  Godfrieds.
