Covid-19 update

Black&Blue1871 is an online business and we remain open.  Please be aware that our normal delivery times may be affected due to the global outbreak of COVID-19.

Shirts that require logo embroidery or number patches may take 1-2 weeks to process and so delivery may be slower than normal. Due to high demand and the need for facemasks our embroiderer has a backlog of work and so shirt embroidery may be delayed as a result.

We thank you for your support and patience while we prepare your orders for delivery. We will update you once your order is ready to be shipped.

From the 1st July 2021, EU VAT rules are changing please see the following page for more information - Delivery



Purchases made before Christmas can be returned for exchange or refund in the New Year. If you require an exchange or refund please send the product back to us with all the packaging by Friday 21st January. If sending from abroad please email us the postage details as we appreciate it will take longer to return items.
