Orders placed on Friday after 12 PM US EST (Eastern Standard Time) will begin processing on the following Monday.

Defective products: Goods are classified as defective if they incur damage due to a manufacturing fault that occurs within six months of purchase.

ORDER PROCESSING CONTACT INFORMATION
You have 14 days from the date of order delivery to initiate a return. We will gladly accept returns on all full-price items within 21 days from the date your order was shipped. This means you have a total of 21 days for the package to be received back at our location, but return requests are not accepted past 14 days from the date of fulfillment. Items purchased on sale, or with a promotion or discount code are not eligible for return.
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES are final sale and may not be returned nor exchanged.
*Please note, In order to serve you most efficiently, we do not offer merchandise exchanges. Instead, you'll get the right size or color fastest if you simply place a second order. Once we receive your return, we'll credit your account.
SAM must authorize all returns prior to you sending back your merchandise. We will not accept any returns without an authorized RA number. All returned items must be unworn, unwashed merchandise with the original tags attached. Items that do not meet these criteria will be denied and sent back to the customer.
Returns will be refunded in the original form of payment minus $11 for the returns fee and minus the original outbound shipping and handling fee. This fee is applied to each return request, not each order. Therefore, if you return multiple items from the same order separately or multiple orders in the same package, you will still be charged $11 per order and per request for return. Authorized returns received past 21 days from the date your order was shipped will incur an additional $25 restocking fee. If we receive the return package past 30 days from the date of dispatch, the return authorization will no longer be valid. In that case, the return will not be accepted nor refunded and immediately shipped back to you. There are no exceptions. Please allow 7 business days for transit time when shipping your return. If the item is not returned using our issued return label, we are not held liable should the item get lost in transit or is not delivered to our location successfully.
Shipping and handling charges are not refundable. Packages that arrive COD may be denied, or the COD amount may be deducted from your return.
Once we receive your return, return processing and refund time is 5-15 business days. Process time may be longer during peak seasons. Please allow your financial institution an additional 7-10 business days to post refund amounts to your account.

- We reserve the right to reject any returns that do not comply with the conditions above. If your package is not accepted, it will be sent back to you and a refund will not be granted.

If purchased from another retailer:

SAM-nyc.com Purchase Warranty
Should your SAM item that was purchased from our website, incur a damage within 6 months of delivery, we will gladly assess photos of the damage and provide a solution for any items we deem defective due to a manufacturing error. However, please note the following:
- Tears or rips in the fabric can be due to any external force, and are not defects due to a manufacturing error.
- The coated cotton fabric that our parkas are crafted with is intentionally designed to distress with time and wear. The fabric is meant to be broken in over time.
- Due to the fact that fur is a natural material, each trim and/or garment is going to vary a bit in color, volume, and overall appearance. During the production process, we hand select the highest quality and most uniform looking furs, but there is going to be a degree of variance amongst the stock.
We do not have a formal repair service. In the case that a garment component (such as a snap or zipper pull) becomes lost or defective, in most cases, we are able to provide customers with a replacement component. (There may be a cost depending on the item and whether or not it must be special ordered).
Unfortunately, we do not sell nor stock replacement hoods or fur trims, including fur collars and linings.
