General

What is MADThread?

MADThread is Singapore’s newest fashion rental platform that offers unlimited styles for women. Ever dreamed about an endless closet packed with curated designer brands? It’s real. Except it takes up no space and does all your dry cleaning. Whether you need a sequined day-to-night dress for work or a classic blue number that shouts boardroom chic, we let you experiment with different looks without breaking the bank.

Our mission?

MADThread is on a mission to take the hassle out of shopping, but not the fun. Mad styles. Price down. On-demand. We’re obsessed with building a one-stop subscription platform that our customers love and can’t do without.

Why rent and not just buy?

Because our Mother Earth deserves better. Millions of tonnes of clothes go into landfills or are incinerated every year because they go unsold or are simply tossed out. Less waste and pollution. Sharing clothes are a great way to experiment with new styles whilst being just a little bit more accountable to our environment. It’s easier on the wallet, too. Wouldn’t you agree?

How are you different from other subscription services?

Our MADSwap delivery service! We're the ONLY subscription rental service in town that promises easy, next-day deliveries where you get your new tote and return the current tote you have on hand at the same time, in a single trip. No double deliveries. Shorter time slots. We think that brings a whole new meaning to fashion on-demand.

We’re also crazy about sourcing for cult brands from all over the world. Although fashion knows no boundaries, our styles come in only a few unique pieces so you’re rarely caught wearing what someone else on the platform is. Don’t worry, there are thousands of apparel for everyone to choose from. We’re constantly polling you for feedback and apparel reviews the minute you sign up and start renting – so we can continue to offer an unbeatable range of styles and sizes, personalized to you.

Are the clothes clean?

Yes! We deliver ‘em sparkling fresh, disinfected and thoroughly clean.. Our close partnership with our laundry partner who has decades of experience ensures quality, professional dry-cleaning standards. The clothes are inspected by our QC team to be in like-new condition before they are sent out. Find out more about our quality standards here.

Subscription

Is there a subscription fee?

Yes. Our unlimited subscription fee is $99/month. This includes free dry-cleaning and next day deliveries. You can cancel anytime.

How do I subscribe?

Sign up via our website or mobile app. Key in your credit card details to start subscribing and get your tote the next day.

How does MADThread work?

Browse our closet in the cloud. Select 3 available items you want delivered. We deliver right to your door step the next working day in a convenient tote bag, professionally dry-cleaned, pressed and ready-to-wear. Dry cleaning and deliveries are free.

Feel like a change of clothes? Select another 3 items, schedule for a MADSwap delivery and we’ll come by the next working day to swap the pieces you have on hand for the new 3 pieces, in a single trip. This means we’ll pick up your current tote, in exchange for your new tote, with no processing time in between! Yup, we hate waiting too.

How long can I keep the tote?

As long as you’re on a subscription plan, you can choose to keep the items for as long as you want, and schedule a MADSwap anytime, anywhere via the internet.

We encourage customers to swap often though - be bold and step out of your comfort zone - experiment with fashion, we say.

Can I rent the same thing twice?

Sure! If the item is available, you can rent it as many times as you want.

MADSwap

What's a MADSwap delivery?

Enjoy instant new picks with no processing time between returns and deliveries! Whenever you want a change of clothes, browse our styles and select another 3 new items. Schedule a MADSwap via our app. When our delivery person arrives, return the rented 3 styles on hand and receive your 3 new styles at the same time - in a single on-the-spot exchange. No processing time in between!

Can I rent more than 3 pieces of clothing at one time?

For each MADSwap, you are only entitled to 3 pieces. If you would like to rent more styles each time you swap, kindly chat with our customer service for more information.

Can I carry my swap forward on a basic plan?

Unfortunately, you won't be able to carry a swap forward! If you'd like more swaps every month, we've introduced a new feature where you can purchase an additional swap for $35. Once you've maximized your swaps for the month, there will be an auto pop-up that prompts you to make that decision.

Can I get a refund for unused swaps?

Unfortunately, we are unable to facilitate any retrospective refunds for underutilized subscriptions once the system has billed for the transaction.

Maintenance and Damages

I received a damaged item, what should I do?

Please chat with us in-app and snapshot images of the item as soon as possible. We’ll make it up to you, we promise!

What happens if I stain or damage the item?

Please chat with us in-app and send us snapshot images of the item as soon as the incident happens. Upon the return of your tote, our professional dry-cleaners and tailors are equipped to handle most stains/slight damages and recommend that you do not attempt to remove the stains yourself.

Unfortunately, it is our company’s policy to bill our customers for any lost or permanently damaged item at full retail price should the item be beyond repair. If the damage of the item can be fixed/reversed (and we promise you that we’ll try our very best!), customers will be charged a nominal repair cost or additional dry cleaning cost. These charges have been laid out in our Terms and Conditions.

Please take care of our goodies! This allows everyone in the sharing community to enjoy our closet in the cloud.

What happens if I misplace an item?

Please chat with us in-app and let us know. We regret to inform you that a penalty late charge of $15 per item will be imposed on you for each and every day that the item is not been returned to us. If the item(s) is not returned in 7 days from when it was due, the item will be deemed as lost and there will be a final charge for the full retail price of the item. These charges have been laid out in our Terms and Conditions.

Do I have to wash the items before returning them?

Please don’t attempt to wash our delicates as they may get damaged. Leave it with us! We partner closely with professional dry-cleaners to ensure that each piece is delivered to you sparkling fresh, disinfected and thoroughly cleaned.

Will the items need to be ironed before wear?

All items will come steamed and pressed before delivery. However, some delicate items may experience wrinkling during the delivery process. You can either use a garment steamer or an iron on low heat. Please refer to the care instructions on the label tags on the clothes for more information.

Can I alter the item?

No, please refrain from altering or sewing onto any of our items! Most of the lengths have been altered professionally by us to fit the average Asian height. If need be, you can use Hollywood tape as a temporary solution, provided you remove it prior to returning the item. No holes, please!

Payments

What are the payment methods?

Visa, Mastercard and Amex credit and debit cards are all accepted. If you do encounter difficulties, give us a holla and we’ll get back to you pronto.

Is my card information safe?

Absolutely! We use Stripe, a trusted global online payment processor. None of your credit card data will be stored on our servers. All transactions are SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protected. Stripe is also a PCI Service Provider Level 1, which is the highest grade of payment processing security. They handle billions of dollars’ worth of transactions around the world every year. Your information is safe!

How am I being billed for my subscription?

Your monthly billing cycle begins as soon as you enter your join code and credit card details. Automatic payment occurs on the date you subscribed on, for every subsequent month.

Styles and Sizing

How are items categorised?

On the app, you can filter through the selection according to Brand, Type, Retail Price, Size, Colour, Occasion, Sleeve and Neckline.

What sizes do you carry?

We currently carry sizes XXS to L. MADThread sizing typically corresponds to UK sizing.

How do I know if the clothes fit?

MADThread sizing (XXS-L) typically corresponds to UK sizing. In every product page, we also carefully detail the clothing fit, fabric type, stretchability and measurements for your easy reference. In your first tote, we send you a measuring tape, so you can key in your vital measurements in the Style Profile section and compare this against the clothing measurements. Still unsure? Ping us in-app and our style advisors will get right back to you with recommendations.

Why do you need my measurements?

Having your measurements allows you to find the best fit possible. As sizing may differ from brand to brand, we do our best to provide actual measurements of each clothing piece which you can then compare against your own vital statistics.

Is there a way I can try on the clothes before subscribing?

Yes, you may! By appointment only and at least one week in advance. Let us know if you want to drop by. We’re working hard to welcome as many of you as possible to the mad wardrobe!

Do you carry maternity wear?

Currently we do not carry maternity wear, but we do carry different types of dresses that will fit you comfortably throughout your pregnancy! We’re always growing our closet so check in again soon!

I want to keep this piece for longer! Can I do a partial return?

Unfortunately, no. We currently do not facilitate partial returns. Please return all 3 pieces in your tote to successfully receive your new styles and to avoid late delivery charges. We regret to inform you that a penalty late charge of $15 per item will be imposed on you for each and every day that the item is not been returned to us. If the item(s) is not returned in 7 days from when it was due (your effective pause or cancellation date), the item will be deemed as lost and there will be a final charge for the full retail price of the item. These charges have been laid out in our Terms and Conditions.

How long would you take to process my return?

Woot! There is no waiting time between totes, as you’ll get a new one in exchange for your old tote at the same time!

Can I reschedule a delivery?

Once your order has been submitted, you’ll only be able to reschedule a delivery by chatting with us in-app. Don’t worry, we’ll try our best to sort it out for you quickly if the query is received before our delivery pick-up cut off time. If your order is already in transit, you will not be able to schedule for change in delivery timing.

What happens if I miss my delivery?

Let us know as soon as possible via our chat and we’ll help to schedule a redelivery.

Cancellation Policy

How do I unsubscribe/cancel?

We’d hate to see you go! Cancellations are easy. To unsubscribe, chat with us and the cancellations team will get back to you within 1-2 working days to arrange a collection of your current tote on hand as soon as the next day. Your cancellation takes effect on the date of the collection. We regret that we will not be able to waive any charges for late returns.

We recommend that you schedule your returns at least 3 working days before the end of your billing cycle so that we can end your subscription before the next billing date. Unfortunately, we are unable to pro-rate refunds for monthly subscription fees for the unused duration of your monthly subscription.

Pause Policy

Can I pause my subscription?

Yes, you can! Going on a holiday? Posted overseas for work? Put your subscription on hold. You can pause your subscription for up to a maximum of up to 2 months.. How to pause? Easy peasy!
