We seek your kind understanding that if products fall within acceptable tolerances, they would not be considered as defects.

The products are measured when laid flat, pressed down, across respective areas using international inch unit measurement. We try our best to be as accurate as possible but please kindly note that there may be a 0.5" to 0.75" difference in our given measurements as apparels are individually sewn. Slight variances in construction and measurements speak to the handcrafted origins of each garment put together and made by our workshop seamstresses.

We always strive to depict and correct each item's true colour to the best of our ability. However, colours may still deviate slightly on different screens as different technological devices have varying screen colour resolutions and colour settings (e.g: Night Mode vs True Tone Mode on iPhones). Perceptions of colours may also vary for different individuals and colours can be affected by lighting conditions in which the viewer examines the product. For instance, a product's colour may be affected by outdoor and indoor lightings of different tones or intensities. 

What Constitutes As A Defect
An item is considered defective if its functionality has been compromised and/or overall look when worn is affected. The defect must be sustained at source and clearly visible upon receipt, before any washing. It is not caused by improper handling or wear and tear. 

Self-inflicted damages to the product such as use of overtly strong detergent, bleach, soaking, high heat and abrasion during wear are not considered defects:

  • Colour transfer that is self-inflicted during wash.
  • Furring and thread pulls that are self-inflicted due to abrasion against rough accessories. This is considered wear and tear.
  • Bursting of zips or buttons due to improper handling or wrong size ordered.

Some limited examples of minor imperfections that do not affect product's overall functionality and hence, are not considered as defects are as follows:

  • Minor loose threads or buttons that can be easily rectified.
  • Varying placement of print or embroidery due to the cut of fabric.
  • Denim washes that are of varying consistencies inherent in denim wash procedure.
  • Denim and embroidery frays that are part of its design.
  • Minor dirt that can be washed off with soap and water.
  • Minor specks inherent in the fabric that are part of manufacturing process.
  • Technical markings that can be washed off or blown.
  • Slight colour variances due to different screen colour resolutions, settings and individual perceptions.
  • Slight measurement variances of between 0.5" to 0.7" that are part of product tolerances.
  • Apparel not fitted well at intended areas due to varying body proportions for different individuals.

The Thread Theory is not liable for amounts beyond the value of item sold. 

Should there be any other issues with your order and product, our Returns Team would gladly assist you with it. Please drop us an email at, thank you very much.
