About Two Blind Brothers:
Founders and brothers Bryan Manning and Bradford Manning are the Two Blind Brothers. They grew up in Virginia and currently live together in New York City. They are equally obsessed about the way clothing feels, and they are ruthlessly committed to finding cures for blindness. At a young age, they were both diagnosed with Stargardt disease, which is a form of macular degeneration.
Their current visual acuity is approximately 20/400. They are both legally blind. Stargardt disease generally affects the center vision while the peripheral vision remains unaffected. The retention of their peripheral vision allows the brothers to get around without visual assistance in most circumstances (for example, they don’t use a white cane or have a guide dog). Their greatest visual challenges include reading small text and recognizing faces.
We like to think we are both – a social enterprise and a charity project. Legally, however, we are set up as an LLC, but we may change our corporate structure down the road. We donate 100% of profits to charitable foundations, programs, and researchers focused on our mission.
The profits go towards research programs that are developing therapies for retinal eye disease cures. We select the beneficiaries through our own network and other trusted organizations. Bradford Manning is a director on the board of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, an organization with which we work very closely.
At this moment we do not accept direct donations, so we encourage you to donate directly to the Foundation Fighting Blindness.
Orders will be fully or partially fulfilled 1-2 business days after the order is placed. If the item is out of stock, you will be notified through email about the expected timeline. When your item ships you will receive tracking information via email.
If you have questions about your Shop Blind order placed in 2018 or want more information on the initiative, please go to the Shop Blind FAQ. If you have issues with your code or haven't received it yet, please email us at email@example.com or call us at (917) 722-6284. As most of the solutions to issues involving Shop Blind orders are solved via email or electronically, it's quickest to email us instead of calling us with the issue you are having so we can make it right! We will, however, try to get back to you via phone as quickly as possible!
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make modifications to your order or to cancel it. Once your order has been placed, there is no guarantee we can modify it as we use an offsite fulfillment center, but please contact our customer service representatives to see what we can do.
If you are would like to add items to your order, please place a separate and new order.
We only collect sales tax for orders that are delivered to addresses in New York, since we have a physical location in New York. Sales tax is automatically applied, as per state, city, and county tax code. We evaluate any changes to the tax code every 30 days so you can rest easy that you are being taxed accurately. If the items are being shipped outside of New York, you will not be charged sales tax.
As we use an offsite fulfillment center, there are no guarantees that we will be able to update your address once the order is placed. If you accidentally put in the wrong address for your order, please email us at email@example.com as soon as possible so we can if we can get the order updated. Please include your order number, the old address, and the new address when contacting us to make changes to your shipping address.
Shipping varies by the location it is being shipped to. Orders must be placed before 3 pm for it to ship out the same day. Orders do not ship out on National Holidays or on weekends. If your order is shipped domestically it should arrive within 5 to 7 business days. If your order is international, please allow for 15 to 20 business days.
Orders may take longer to be processed and shipped near the holidays, and on sale days.
All shipping options can be viewed at checkout.
Two Blind Brothers will ship everywhere. We charge a $45 shipping fee for international orders ($16.95 to Canada). If your order is international, it will be shipped via USPS. Two Blind Brothers has no control over duties and taxes, and cannot waive these charges. Additionally, we cannot control how long your product takes to go through customs.
A tracking number will be Included in the shipping confirmation email. You may go to UPS.com or USPS.com and use the tracking number to track your package.
If an item you want is sold out or on pre-order we ask that you kindly check back in 1-2 weeks. We are working on developing an out-of-stock notification option, but haven't gotten it quite right yet.
Returns and the Blind Faith Guarantee:
At Two Blind Brothers, we have a "Blind Faith" guarantee, which means that we offer free domestic returns and exchanges, no questions asked (*we cannot accommodate pre-paid international returns at this time). Our Blind Faith guarantee rests on two very important notions:
1. You can't feel our shirts through the internet: We put a lot of thought into making some of the softest shirts we've ever felt and we want to share that with you, but you can't feel our shirts through the internet. If you're curious about whether or not the shirts are as soft as we say they are, we encourage you to order one to feel it out. Not convinced? No worries! Just send it back.
2. We all make mistakes sometimes: From buying the wrong size to booking a flight for the wrong date, and whether you call it bad vision, or bad luck, we've been there before too, so if you accidentally ordered the wrong size or the wrong color, don't worry either! Just send it back and we'll get the correct one out to you, on us. We're not happy if you're not happy.
You can initiate your return or exchange by generating your pre-paid return label directly from your Shipment Tracking page that was sent to you in an email when your package was sent out. Simply click the "Return Items" button on the top left of the page. You can also email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The order can only be returned for a full refund within 45 days of purchase. Orders can be exchanged within 45 days of purchase if it has not been worn and is in good condition, but we want to be flexible so if you're outside that range, just let us know and we will work with you to get it figured out.
