HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN RUNNING AS A BUSINESS?
We launched in March 2011, so over 10 years now!
WHY DON’T YOU SEPARATE YOUR CLOTHING BY GENDER?
Lonely Kids Club creates gender neutral clothing and is an avid supporter of gender, sexual and age diversity & equality. We make clothes for anyone to wear of any age or gender identity. The site and store are a safe space and we believe people should wear the clothes that they want to. ALL items on the site are unisex, and Lonely Kids Club proudly supports the idea that we as people should just dress in what makes us feel good without judgement.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located in Sydney, Australia. All of our orders are shipped from our printing studio here.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STAPLE AND MAPLE?
We are gender neutral, so we don't separate clothes by gender. However, we want to accommodate all body shapes, so we have different fits. Two of these are Staple (traditionally more 'masculine' fit) and Maple (traditionally more 'feminine' fit). You can see more details on all of our tee fits here.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE TO BUY?
There are specific size guides on each product page which also include instructions on how to measure for the right size. Simply click on the "SIZE GUIDE" button underneath the "ADD TO CART" button.
I CAN'T FIND MY SIZE, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Please contact us via the chat or our email and we'll work with you for a custom product.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY CLOTHES?
All of our printed products are Direct To Garment printed by ourselves using the latest Digital Printing technology. To help the print last forever, please cold wash all garments inside out and avoid tumble drying, which can damage the print quality.
WHY ARE THERE LITTLE MARKS ON MY CLOTHES?
Our printing process uses a 'pre-treatment fluid' which helps the ink to bind with the fibres of the garment. Sometimes there is a little residue leftover, which might look like a small white or wet mark on the clothing. This will wash out straight away. If you find a mark that doesn't wash out, please contact us so we can rectify the situation asap.
WHAT ARE YOUR CLOTHES MADE OF?
Our tees are 100% ethically sourced cotton (apart from marles which are 80% cotton and 20% polyester). Most other products are completely or mostly cotton as well. You can find the specific breakdown of composition under the "product details" tab on the product page.
WHERE ARE YOUR CLOTHES MADE?
We print all of our clothing in our Sydney printing studio. Before the clothing is printed, it is ethically made in a variety of locations. Our main supplier ethically manufactures in Bangladesh. Caps, hats, beanies, and patches are embroidered in Sydney. We also have a seamstress here in Sydney who makes a lot of our custom and limited release products.
HOW CAN I PAY FOR MY ORDER?
Globally we accept Mastercard, Visa & American Express via Credit Card, and Paypal Express. We do not charge fees for either of these services. Australians additionally have access to Pay Later services Afterpay and Laybuy. We are currently working on offering more global solutions for Pay Later solutions.
HOW CAN I PURCHASE A GIFT CARD?
You can purchase a gift card here.
WHAT CURRENCIES CAN I USE TO PLACE AN ORDER?
All products are displayed in Australian Dollars, but you can also view and place orders in New Zealand Dollars, US dollars, Euros, British Pounds, or Canadian Dollars.
CAN YOU HELP ME WITH MY PROMO CODE?
If your promo code isn’t working, check the spelling and whether it was part of a limited promotion. If you’re still not sure you can use the chat feature on our website or email us at email@example.com.
MY PAYMENT WAS DECLINED, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
We recommend contacting your payment provider depending on what youre using. For example your bank provider if using a Credit Card, or Paypal if using a Paypal account. We don't personally have access to provide more help with your payment accounts, but you can also try using a different payment method if one isn't working for you.

If the products you have ordered are ready to go in our warehouse they will be shipped within two business days. For products we need to customise, the shipping departure timing is closer to a week. Our storage space is small, so we often need to custom order blank products from our suppliers before they are printed, giving some items an estimated completion date of around 2 weeks. If we foresee a longer wait than this we will email you as quickly as possible. If you would like more specific timing you can always email us at email@example.com.
Please note we send your entire order at once, so items that are ready to go will not be shipped until all items are ready.
Domestic orders with standard shipping generally take 2 – 10 business days and are shipped via AusPost. Express shipping generally takes 1 – 3 business days and are shipped via AusPost. Please note that orders going to Tasmania and Western Australia may take longer to be delivered, and weather issues can also delay packages.
International orders are shipped via DHL Express and usually take between 5 – 12 business days. Please note that dispatch from DHL can take between 1 – 3 business days once you have been emailed the shipping notification. Any weather issues can delay orders.
