Some of our older stock still has our original branding. These older pieces are only in select size/color combinations, mostly in slower selling styles/colors and the less popular sizes (XS or XXXL). If you have questions or concerns please contact us and we will make sure you either receive your Minus33 as you desire it or we will advise what color/style/size to purchase. Currently these older pieces account for less than 1% of our total inventory and in the off chance you receive one we will gladly help exchange if you so desire.

AVS is a system used to verify the address of a person claiming to own a Credit Card. The system will check the billing address of the credit card provided by the user with the address on file at the credit card company. We require this for orders to better protect our customers from fraudulent purchases.
You may see what is called an Authorization hold. An Authorization hold (also card authorization, preauthorization, or preauth) is the practice within the banking industry of authorizing electronic transactions done with a debit card or credit card and holding this balance as unavailable either until the merchant clears the transaction (also called settlement), or the hold “falls off.”
In the case of debit cards, authorization holds can fall off the account (thus rendering the balance available again) anywhere from 1–5 days after the transaction date depending on the bank’s policy; in the case of credit cards, holds may last as long as 30 days, depending on your issuing bank. For this reason, it is important for you to not make repetitive attempts unless you are sure the information you are reentering is correct.
