In most cases, any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country.

Any charges on a parcel must be paid by the person receiving the parcel (this also applies to retail & wholesale customers).

Tailwind Apparel has no control over these charges and we can’t tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.

We craft our new and highly demanded products in small batches. Therefore, pre-ordering your exquisitely crafted Tailwind Apparel piece will not only save you money, but it also allows our craftsman to work more seamlessly, thus retaining the high level of quality you have grown to expect. Once we complete your piece to our satisfaction, we will ship it to you by the estimated departure date. This way, our planet takes on less waste, and everybody wins!

Our ecological approach to production translates to limitations of how many products we can produce every month. Therefore, we can only scale so fast without compromising the quality of our products. For this reason, we schedule our production and release pieces on our website for pre-order with an estimated dispatch timeframe.
