General Sales, Payment and Delivery Terms and Conditions (GTC)
By accepting the goods/services, the Purchaser expressly agrees to be bound by these General Sales, Payment and Delivery Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions apply to this order and all subsequent orders. Any changes must be agreed upon in writing.
The Seller reserves the right to raise the price of goods until the day of delivery if material and labour costs, customs duties and other charges have increased by more than 5% between order acceptance and delivery.
Payment terms and cash discount deductions shall be agreed upon by the Purchaser and Seller. Unless agreed otherwise, payment shall be made after receipt of invoice without any deduction of cash discounts.
4. Additional size charges:
Men’s size 58/XXL and up: 5% additional charge per size increase. Women’s size 52/XXL and up: 5% additional charge per size increase. Small sizes, belly sizes and other custom orders: additional charges according to the applicable price list.

Delivery dates are not binding. Partial deliveries and early deliveries are permitted. When a delivery date has been arranged, the Purchaser must extend the deadline by at least four weeks.
6. Late payment:
If the payment is not made by the due date, the Purchaser commits himself to pay interest on any outstanding amount at the rate of at least 1% per month and pay collection costs. The Purchaser agrees that in case of unsettled payment, interests will be capitalized until a suit is filed, and collection costs are added to the capital sum. The Seller is not bound to deliver any goods until fully paid for (including interest payments and other charges).

In case of operational disturbances, other events of force majeure and all other circumstances that impede the delivery of goods, the Seller shall be relieved from all obligations to make any delivery. The Seller shall be liable for damages and other legal claims only within the extent of applicable law, presently in case of premeditation and gross negligence. However, delayed delivery is not a basis for a request for compensation. The Seller shall only be liable for third parties who act on the Seller’s behalf to fulfil the order, or from whom the Seller acquires goods or services to produce the goods required for the order, if the fault was due to the Seller’s negligence during the selection process within the scope above.
