Returns to Calvin Klein by mail

- Find your order number
- Go to the Calvin Klein website and scroll to the bottom of the home page

Returns to Calvin Klein in store
If you do live close enough to a Calvin Klein retailer to return your items in-store, you will not be charged a processing fee. You may return online orders in-store too if you have your return slip.
- Bring in the items you wish to return with your proof of purchase
- Locate a Calvin Klein employee
- Explain that you would like to return your item
The employee will walk you through the rest of the process. This return method is quicker and cheaper than returning items by mail.
What if the custom item you ordered from Calvin Klein arrives damaged or wrong?
While normally Calvin Klein doesn’t accept returns for custom items, the exception to that rule is if they arrive damaged or incorrect. In this situation, you also will not be charged a return processing fee. However, if you entered the information wrong when you ordered the custom item then your item doesn’t qualify for a refund.
When can you expect a refund from Calvin Klein?
So, you’ve decided to return the item and would like the money refunded to your payment method. This process will take some time, so you will need to be patient. Below will explain the process your refund is going through
- Processing your refund will take up to fourteen days. The Calvin Klein team needs to look at your order and the items you’ve sent back to determine if you qualify for a refund.
- Once a decision is reached about if you will receive a refund or not, you will receive an email from Calvin Klein. Keep an eye on your email for a few weeks after you’ve sent back your items.
- If your refund gets approved, it can take up to three additional business days for the funds to appear in your account
- Keep in mind that Calvin Klein will deduct a $4.95 shipping and processing fee from your refund if the items were not incorrect or damaged
Calvin Klein’s return policy is like most large clothing brands. The policy leans just slightly on the generous side because Calvin Klein offers you a forty-five-day return window instead of a thirty-day return window. Most clothing companies require returns to be unworn, unwashed and still have the tags on.
The standards that Calvin Klein requires items to be returned line up with the standard most clothing retailers require. In-store returns are cheaper and more convenient than mail returns are. If you can return your items to a Calvin Klein retail store, that is the better option of the two. Returning items to Calvin Klein is easy as long as the return policy is followed.
