The T&Cs exclusively apply to buyers acting in the capacity as consumers, i.e., only individuals purchasing products for purposes which do not fall within the scope of their commercial, industrial, skilled trade or self-employed business activities.

Our T&Cs are governed by French law. Ardentes Clipei (hereinafter “Ardentes Clipei”) shall not accept liability in the event of purchase of a product from a third country that does not comply with the law of said country.


The purpose of the T&Cs is to define the rights and obligations of Ardentes Clipei and the Customer in the scope of the sale of the products displayed by Ardentes Clipei on its website (hereinafter the “Website”).

On the Website, Ardentes Clipei enables the Customer to order Ardentes Clipei, Calabrese and Warman brand products (hereinafter the “Product(s)”) in accordance with the T&Cs.


The T&Cs apply to all sales of Products by Ardentes Clipei to the Customer carried out via the Website.

The Customer confirms that he has read the T&Cs before placing his Order and acknowledges that confirmation of his Order entails acceptance thereof.

An Order shall only be taken into account by Ardentes Clipei after the Customer’s prior acceptance of the T&Cs, which are available on the Website where they may be read, printed and also downloaded.

The T&Cs are permanently available at the following address: in electronic, printable and/or downloadable format so that the Customer can print or save them.

Ardentes Clipei reserves the right to amend the T&Cs from time to time. In the event of amendment, the T&Cs accepted by the Customer when he placed his Order shall continue to apply to the relations between the Parties.


The Products available for sale are displayed on the Website complete with a description.

The Products offered for sale by Ardentes Clipei comply with applicable standards in France.

Details such as, in particular, photographs, text, graphics and any information and features illustrating and/or accompanying the Products are not contractual, which the Customer acknowledges.

Therefore, Ardentes Clipei does not accept liability in the event of error or omission in any details or amendment of said details by suppliers and/or publishers.


The Customer confirms that he is aged at least 18 and has legal capacity or parental permission authorising him to place an Order on the Website.

The Customer undertakes to provide Ardentes Clipei with accurate information required to perform the purpose of the T&Cs as requested from him online and based on his situation, including in particular his surname, forename, address, telephone number and valid e-mail address.

The Customer shall place his Order via the Website. When the Customer places his first Order via the Website, he must open a “customer account” with Ardentes Clipei and complete a form to this end available on the Website in the section “My Account”.

This form mainly includes information required to identify the Customer and, in particular, his surname and forename, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address and password.

The Customer shall be liable for the consequences resulting from providing false or inaccurate information or information which was unlawfully recovered.

The Customer can amend his data in the section “My Account”. If the Customer forgets his password, he can generate a new one by clicking on the link “Forgotten password” on the Website.

In the event of theft or any fraudulent use of this data, the Customer undertakes to immediately inform Ardentes Clipei thereof.


As soon as the Customer has created his customer account, he can select the Product(s) that he wishes to purchase on the Website. These Products shall be placed in a “shopping basket” for an Order which the Customer may complete or amend as he wishes up until confirmation of his Order.

The sale agreement between Ardentes Clipei and the Customer shall be formed when the Customer clicks on the button “Confirm” during the Order confirmation process. Up until this final step, the Customer may return to the previous pages and correct and amend his Order and the prior information provided.

An Order shall only be confirmed after payment acceptance.

As soon as the Order is placed, Ardentes Clipei shall send a confirmation e-mail to the Customer. It shall inform him when the Products are dispatched.

Ardentes Clipei reserves the right to cancel or refuse any Order in the event of a dispute with the Customer relating to a previous Order.

Ardentes Clipei may accept Orders within the limit of available stock. It shall inform the Customer regarding the availability of Products for sale on the Website at the time of the Order confirmation.

If, in spite of Ardentes Clipei’s care and attention, Products are unavailable, Ardentes Clipei shall promptly inform the Customer thereof. The Customer may consequently cancel his Order and receive a refund of any amounts already paid, where applicable.

Ardentes Clipei does not accept liability for permanent or temporary Product unavailability or give the Customer any right to claim compensation.

Any Order for a made-to-measure Product on the Website shall assume that the Customer has previously purchased the same made-to-measure Product (suit and/or shirt) in the Ardentes Clipei store located at 56 rue Saint Georges or on appointment at an external venue. Therefore, no Order for a made-to-measure Product may be placed on Website by the Customer if the latter has not previously purchased a Product in the store or on appointment at an external venue, prior to placing this Order.

The Customer can have a personalised in-store fitting, which will enable him to place an Order at a later date for a Product on the Website based on the measurements taken in the store.

In this case, the Customer must visit the store or make an appointment at an external venue to make any changes to these measurements.


Prices are displayed on the Website in euros including all French taxes (French VAT and any other applicable taxes), excluding postage, order processing and packaging costs.

Postage, free delivery and any order processing costs and packaging costs shall be shown in the Customer’s shopping basket, before final confirmation of the Order.

If the item has been dispatched prior to receipt of the Order cancellation, Ardentes Clipei shall refund the amount of the item and the delivery and return postage costs within a maximum of fourteen (14) days, upon receipt of the complete item in its original condition with the original labels. The amount refunded to the Customer shall be increased in the event of a delayed refund in accordance with the conditions laid down in Article L.138-3 of the Consumer Code.

The Seller will only be required to deliver the Products purchased when placing the order if the Customer pays the price of the order in full under the conditions indicated above. Payments made by the Customer will only be considered final after actual receipt of the sums due by the latter.
No payment on delivery shall be accepted on any grounds whatsoever.


The invoice shall be drawn up on the dispatch date of the Order and sent to the Customer at the same time as his Order.

In addition, the invoice shall be available on the Website in the section “My Account” for a period of one (1) year.

Ardentes Clipei reserves full ownership of the sold Product up until full payment of the price by the Customer and payment of all other liabilities owed to Ardentes Clipei.

If the Customer is subject to insolvency proceedings and full payment has not been made for the Product, Ardentes Clipei may recover the Product by exercising its right to establish ownership.

Article L. 211-4 of the Consumer Code:

“The seller is required to deliver a product which conforms to the contract and is shall be liable for any non-conformity which exists upon delivery.

Article 1641 of the Civil Code:

“The seller is bound to a warranty against hidden defects in the thing sold that render it unfit for its intended use, or that so impair its use that the buyer would not have bought it, or would only have given a lesser price for it if he had known of the defects”.
