STopmen Mutual Aid #STMA FAQ :
How does STopmen Mutual Aid (STMA) work?
STopmen Mutual Aid is a collection of one-of-kind, hand-printed works. 200 items and looks are released at the beginning of each month.
100% of sales go to:
A monthly honoree who is in need of support that we introduce to you via the @we_will_all_be_well IG
An employed person surviving in this capitalist system who manages the webshop and ships items
Reimbursing basic production and material costs
How can I promote STopmen Mutual Aid?
Stopmen clothes are meant to be performative, assertive and or non-engaging STOPMEN is a no nonsense street wear. DM us if you have anything to say about the subject, we love posting other people's words and experiences wearing Stopmen. Send pics and tag us @we_will_all_be_well, use #STOPMEN #STOPMENMUTUALAID, and tell friends.
Stop Men supports the reselling of all Stop Men clothes, cutting up any Stop Men pieces, wearing them
backwards or upside down, turning a sweatshirt or T-shirt into a crop top, creating new pieces
from Stop Men clothes in any way possible. Stop Men supports anyone who wants to speak
about or create with StopMen, feel free to use the phrase, we don't own words. We do ask,
if possible, to refrain from stating what Stop Men IS, please don't define Stop men beyond
what it means to you. We will not police anyone on this subject, we don't have the time or
interest to do that. Please de-center us as Stopmen and instead create your own Stopmen world.
We are very serious in our intentions and have many interviews and statements searchable on
the web. Antics, performances, creative statements, memes, we invite and support anyone
to play with Stop Men and what it means to you. While doing so, please be conscious and intentional
with the space you are taking up.

How do I know if my order has shipped?
You will get an email confirmation when your order is on the way. Please use the tracking that will be sent with your confirmation to monitor your package. We mail out clothes every Tuesday.
How long does shipping take?
All items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. After your order is received and packaged, it is shipped and usually arrives within 2-4 business days (1-3 days in the Bay Area). Please keep in mind that since we ship on Tuesday, your items will not ship out until the Tuesday after your order.
What if the clothing I ordered doesn't fit?
Check all measurements carefully before ordering. Measure similar garments you own to ensure it will fit. Make sure you love the piece you buy and that if it doesn't work for you, you are happy to pass it on to a friend or donate. Because this a mutual aid program and each item is one of a kind, we do not do exchanges, returns, or refunds. Once you buy it you buy it! Thank you for you understanding and taking a risk.
What if don't get my package?
We can not be responsible for lost or stolen packages. Please monitor the tracking number you receive to get your package as soon as its been delivered, especially if its delivered to an unsecured area, to ensure it is not picked up by someone else. Because every order is shipped via USPS Priority, it has $50 insurance built in. Please follow up with USPS to track a lost package, get insurance, or find out more.
Can I send you my own clothes to print ?
We aren't set up to take commission requests so we evaluate them on the basis of the project. If you have an everyday item you want STOPMEN on, you can DIY it, there are Stopmen fabric swatches in the shop. All serious commission requests are evaluated on the basis of size, scope, price, and purpose, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We love printing special gear for bands, special occasions, wild projects and instances of unique and needed support. If you would like to use Stopmen clothes for your project or event, write to us, describe it and let us know what you're looking for.
