Grooming apparel, stylist smocks, and salon apparel for professional Pet Groomers, Barbers, and Hairstylists.

Quality. Function. Fabulous. 

Sizing Guides & Transition

At the request of our clients, we have changed the sizing of several grooming smocks to accommodate a wider range of clients. Our garments are not "one size fits all" as we like to create different silhouettes to fit different body types well. When ordering your favorite style, please be sure to swipe left in the photo section to see the size guide for the garment you wish to purchase. This will minimize costly returns and exchanges. We are excited to bring new styles to the market soon.

Shipping, & Returns...oh my!

Shipping and Handling: 

We generally process & ship within 3-7  business days. Most packages delivered by USPS ground shipping 3-5 business days. Weekends and Holidays may delay processing and shipping.  NOTE: Please make sure to list your correct address as misspelled addresses will delay the shipping of your purchase. Yes, we ship internationally via USPS. Select the “International” shipping option. Generally international shipping takes 1-3 weeks depending on your Country. If you have a deadline to receive your order, please send us an email letting us know the urgency of your order so we can do our best to expedite. 


Exchanges/returns within 30 days, unused, unwashed, (no hair/fur/smoke) with return receipt, & reason for return/exchange included in return package. Returns/Exchanges may take up to 3 weeks. Buyer pays shipping for returns, and sizing exchanges.

Online Ordering: 

Although we keep our online inventory up to date…occasionally we may be sold out of an item due to our listing on multiple sales channels. This may display more or less quantity than our current stock. When this happens we try to contact you and or substitute the “Out of Stock” item with something similar. If you need something specific, please include “DON’T SUBSTITUTE” in the notes section of your order and we’ll contact you to see if you’d like to wait for inventory replenishment, substitute, or refund. We thank you for your understanding.

I have ordered 3 smocks from Retro Stylist Wear and I love them!!!! I love the fun colors and patterns I go run errands around town and get compliments all the time! The quality is amazing they are super durable and I havn't had any problems with colors fading. They are also super breathable. I'm definitely a customer for life!

These are the best smocks I have ever owned. I am a smock destroyer. Mine are 2 or 3 years old with no rips, tears, staining or trashed zippers. They are 100% worth every penny!
