Customer service

Do you have a question? It might be included in the top 10 FAQs. If it isn’t, please check our contact details and call us or send us an email.

I have seen a Fred de la Bretoniere bag or shoes in the shop, but you don’t sell it via your website; why is that?

In our webshop we only sell the collection that we also carry in our own Fred de la Bretoniere and Fretons stores. You may have seen the shoes or bag in another store that sells our footwear and accessories. These sometimes sell a different collection from the one we sell in our own stores. Our website gives you a list of stores and webshops that also carry our footwear and accessories. 

What is the difference between ordering with and without an account?

If you create an account your details are registered with us, so that when you place a new order you won’t need to fill out all the information again. If you order without an account we will only use your details for handling that one order. Even if you don’t create an account, we do send you a user name and a password via email. You may choose not to do anything with these, but we still offer them so that you can follow your order status even without creating an account.

Which countries do you ship to?

At this point you can only order products from our webshop if you live in the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany. Do you live in another country and would you like to order one or our products? You can do so by sending an email to asking for a personal offer. In this case we will need the following information: the article number of the product you wish to order, the colour and size you need, your country and your city. We will then send you your personal offer including the correct price and shipment costs within 3 working days. 

What should I do if I entered the wrong address when I placed my order?

If the order is still being processed, which you can check in ‘my orders’ in your account, please contact as soon as possible. We will then change the address for you.

How can I check the status of my webshop order?

To check the status, go to My ACCOUNT. Here you can enter your user name and password. Then go to your personal details. Under the header ‘my order’ you can check the status of the order. If you chose not to create an account, you can log in with the details we sent you and still check the status of your order.

If it reads that your order is being processed, this means that our webshop staff still has to handle the order.

If it reads ‘order picked’ our webshop staff have received the order and the order is being prepared for shipment.

If it reads ‘shipped’ you will receive an email about the shipment. Via the track&trace code that DHL will send to you, you can trace you parcel.

I would like to know how to maintain my Fred de la Bretoniere bag or shoes; who can I ask?

Please send an email to If you include the article number on the box, our people will be able to tell you what is the best way to treat your product.

Why can't I use AchterafBetalen to pay?

Unfortunately, we can only offer the option AchterafBetalen to customers who live in the Netherlands. You do live in the Netherlands and ordering by means of this option does not succeed? There are several possible reasons for this. First of all, please note that you did not fill in a mobile phone number in the tab phone number. If you only have a mobile phone number, please fill in this number in the tab 'mobile phone' and don't fill in anything in the tab 'landline'. If this does not resolve the issue, please contact Focum. 

I recently ordered a pair of shoes, but there is something wrong with them. Who should I tell?

First check ‘complaints and warranty’ where we tell you about the rules we apply at Fred de la Bretoniere. If you would like to lodge a complaint or if you have a question about our warranty that is not answered there, please send an email to Please clearly specify the article number and, if you can, include some pictures so that our people can better judge the problem.
