I prefer an oversized fit, what would your recommendation be?


Our stencil hoodie is a unisex fit so it is also suitable for females if you prefer an oversized fit. Be aware that these hoodies are longer in length, with longer sleeves compared to the Women's hoodies. To find your fit, please refer to our sizing charts attached to all our hoodies on offer. If you have any further questions about fit or sizing, don't hestitate to get in contact with us!




Do you re-order any out of stock merchandise?


As most of our merchandise is pre-ordered, re-ordering is dependent on interest and quantity required. If there is any out of stock merchandise that you would like to order, please fill in the form below and we'll in touch if there is enough interest in another order.




Can I try on before purchasing?


Unfortunately due to the current circumstances, we may be unable to organise for you to try on the hoodies. However, we hope to provide as many visuals and sizing information as possible so that you can be confident with your purchase. If there is interest around try ons, we may be able to organise a try on session so stay tuned on your Facebook year level pages! Alternatively, if you would like to try on any of our merchandise, please visit the local AS Colour store conveniently located in West End. Alternatively, Universal Store and City Beach also stock AS Colour products so we do recommend visiting them if you wish to try on the sizing first.




What is the difference between the mens and womens hoodies?


The difference between the mens and womens hoodies in a particular style is just the fit. Previously, hoodies have been too long or baggy for the ladies and and therefore we decided to make the womens available this year as it is shorter on average in terms of body length - for specifics, please refer to the attached size charts.




What is the difference between Fleece and French Terry cotton?


French terry looks like jersey with a smooth knit stitch on one side and the flat loops of purls on the other. It is made from thicker thread/yarn, which makes it great for yoga pants, light weight sweatshirts, lounge wear and more. Sweatshirt fleece (also referred to as cotton fleece or bamboo fleece at times) is similar except often has a tighter stitch and a brushed back (looped/purl side) to make it soft and fuzzy, which also adds warmth. As a rule of thumb: sweatshirt fleece keeps you warmer and french terry keeps you cooler.




What if I need to modify my order?


All merchandise orders can be modified before the conclusion of our pre-order period. Please follow the process below to amend your existing order. 1. Put through a new transaction with what you're after (be sure to replicate any existing items that you bought but are not changing) 2. Let us know you have an existing order and quote us your previous order number in the Instructions box at checkout so we can track down your previous purchase! 3. Make sure the total cost matches your existing order! No need to transfer again as we will match this order with your previous payment! 4. Send Strabis Moose a message to let us know of the amended order! If you have any queries, please send Strabis Moose a message on Facebook or email qoss.exec@gmail.com!

Can I purchase a ticket for my partner during the early access round?


Absolutely!

How does the OGS tickets work?


Simply purchase the amount of tickets you are after and redeem them on the night! You will have the option to also purchase them on the night but we'd rather you mingle and make the most of our drinks package than scrambling to find someone or even worse not having money on you!
