Return + Refund Policy

You can request to return any item for refund if it is in its original condition (unwashed, unworn, and not used), if you contact The Federated Way through email within 10 days of the delivery arrival date. This is for all items unless the item was purchased as final sale. Please note that all purchases on this website are while supplies last, therefore exchanges are based upon available inventory. If your item is no longer in stock, you are eligible for a full refund (excluding shipping costs), as long as the item has not been used and has been received (you will get email confirmation upon receipt) within the 10 day limit.

For all returns and exchanges, please email thefederatedway@gmail.com with the subject line "Returns and Exchanges" and your order number. Please note: A customer service representative will return your email inquiries regarding The Federated Way within 3 business days.


All customers are responsible for return shipping fees unless the item was damaged/broken. If the customer chooses to request a refund for any other reason (i.e. not liking the product, wrong size, etc.), they will be refunded for the product only (and any taxes that were applied), and will be required to ship the item back to our facility and pay for any applicable shipping and handling fees.

If the customer enters the wrong address, the shipment will be returned to our facility and the customer will be responsible for reshipment costs once an updated address has been confirmed. Any shipments that go unclaimed or are undelivered (due to the delivery company not being able to fulfill an order for any reason i.e. no apartment number given, missing buzz code, etc.) are also returned to our facility, and the customer will be responsible for the cost of reshipment. If the customer chooses not to reship their order, they will not be refunded.
