In such cases we will try to resolve all information errors on the Website as soon as reasonably possible. If we think that such an error has affected your purchase we will try to let you know as quickly as possible. 

We will not be liable to you for any errors on the Website. Just ask us if you need more information about a product.

Colours may vary in real life, to those which appear on screen.

Pilling/Bobbling and Snagging 

The fabrics we use for our sportswear are produced in Europe by some of the world’s top technical fabric manufacturers. As such they have each been rigorously and thoroughly tested for their suitability and durability. We are therefore VERY confident that you will not experience a fabric fault. 

We use market leading Italian fabrics in all of our garments. These fabrics have been extensively tested and are hard wearing and entirely suitable for purpose, HOWEVER you must take care with your garments as they can easily snag or pil if they come into contact with sharp or rough objects. 

If your garment shows signs of isolated rubbing, snagging or piling (bobbling) this is most likely due to it rubbing on something sharp or rough, or catching on part of your bike, clothing or another sharp object. Pilling and snagging of this type is not a fabric/garment fault.

Please check your bike for saddle studs, wires, velcro, seat bags, mud guards etc. Ensure that you do not sit on rough or splintered seating, take care with the under side of wooden picnic tables and and ensure that the zips and velcro fastenings of the other garments you wear do not rub and cause damage.

Returns and Exchanges 

Much as we are sure you will love your Fat Lad At The Back purchase there may be a reason that you decide it’s not for you. It’s OK we won’t be cross. Just return it to us unworn/unused and in its original packaging, together with the returns slip that’s with your order and within 14 days of receipt and you’ll hear no more about it, other than a confirmation email to say ‘we got it’ and a refund of your hand earned cash. Please DO NOT remove the tags until you are certain that you are keeping the item. Do try on the garments and for best results adopt a 'cycling position' to get the best fit.

Items which have had tags removed or which have been worn can not be returned for an exchange or a refund.

If the item you require is not available we will contact you to ask you whether you want a refund or to swap to a different item, if there is an alternative available.

We can only accept returns and exchanges which have been purchased directly from Fat Lad At The Back. If you have purchased a garment from another retailer, please return the garment to them.

Please allow 14 days of receipt for returns and exchanges to be processed, if you have any queries about your return email us at with your order number and return tracking information. 

Refunds can take several days to be processed by PayPal and your bank or card supplier, therefore it may take more than 14 days for the refund to appear in your account. 

If you do not have the original documentation which came with your order, simply print off your order confirmation and add a note explaining what you would like to do and enclose this with your item.

We do not refund customers postage or delivery costs. We recommend that you use a recorded or signed for delivery for your item and retain the proof of postage, as lost parcels cannot be refunded.

About our Products 

Our sportswear is handmade in Europe, in a family run factory, which has been making sportswear for over 35 years. With access to the latest Italian technical fabrics and a wealth of knowledge about their industry, it’s no surprise that they manufacture for some of the best names (including Fat Lad At The Back, of course) in the business.

Garment Testing 

Our garments are thoroughly tested by a variety of Fat Lads and Fat Lasses and are constantly evolving based on their feedback and that of our customers. 

Faulty Goods 

Occasionally, it has been known for something to be not quite right, not up to scratch or not tickety boo. If you consider your garments to have a manufacturing fault we need to know about it as soon as possible. In the first instance, please drop us an email to with your order number and photo’s of your garment.

We may need to see your garment and you will have to send it to our office. We will refund the postage at our discretion and only if we consider that your garment has a genuine fault. We will refund or replace garments if we consider them to be faulty. PLEASE EMAIL US BEFORE RETURNING FAULTY ITEMS.


Washing and Care Instructions 

DO avoid snagging by ensuring that jersey and jacket zips are fastened and that your garments are not washed with other items which have zips, sharp trims or Velcro.

DO check your bike for saddle studs, wires, velcro, seat bags, mud guards and anything else with sharp or rough edges, as these can cause damage to your garments.  

DO ensure that you do not sit on rough or splintered seating, take care with the under side of wooden picnic tables and and

DO ensure that the zips and velcro fastenings of the other garments which you wear, do not rub and cause damage

  • Fasten all zips and Fastenings 

  • Our garments can be machine washed at 30°C

  • Line dry

  • DO NOT tumble dry

  • DO NOT dry items with reflective transfers and logos on radiators - the heat source will cause damage to the transfer.

  • DO NOT use fabric conditioner -  it reduces the performance and contributes to the deterioration of technical fabrics.


Sometimes Things Go Wrong! 

Although our Fat Lads always try to do their best, they do make mistakes (they can be distracted, especially when they are hungry).

Please get in touch with us, quoting your order number and we will do what we can to put it right. 

P.S. Politeness goes a long way here at FLAB HQ - Please try not to be uppity. If you're nice to us, you'll find that we're really nice back and that means that everyone ends up having a better day!
