ABOUT THE PROJECT


In 2020 we launched M’A PRE-OWNED - a communal wardrobe where the M’A community can shop and resell much-loved pieces from iconic past MARQUES ‘ALMEIDA collections.

See it as raiding your M’A friends wardrobe finding gems you didn’t even know existed 😊


The responsibility we have to our family, to the planet and to our people means that we are constantly searching for new ways to make our brand more sustainable, and ensure our business is as circular as possible.


We at M’A have always been believers that M’A feels precious not because it sits untouched on a hanger, but because it feels soulful and lived in – M’A PRE-OWNED is our most honest representation of this!


Happy shopping and get in touch to re-sell your M’A pieces and be part of the community

To re-sell your M’A pieces just submit a photo through a form on our website and if approved we will collect it from you and pay you for it in M’A credit!

After receiving your submission our team will check your photos and the quality of your item(s). We aim to get back to you within 2-5 working days with an update upon your submission. Sometimes the photos submitted may not be clear enough for us to properly assess the condition of your item(s) and we may ask for more photos. If we’ve asked you to submit more photos, we’ll only be able to provide you with a quote once those photos have been received.

     FAQ's

WHAT IS M'A PRE-OWNED ?

M'A PRE-OWNED is a service that enables you to sell your used Marques ' Almeida products that for some reason you don't use anymore in exchange for M'A credits to buy any product on the M’A online shop.

WHY SHOULD I SELL MY USED ITEMS ?

Reselling clothes has a big positive social and environmental impact. When you sell the items you don't use anymore you help reduce carbon emissions, prevent old clothing from ending up in landfills or incinerators and gives a chance of a second life to a product that isn’t being used anymore.

WHAT KIND OF PRODUCTS CAN I SELL?

We only accept Marques'Almeida products that are in ‘A’ and resalable condition. Keep in mind that someone will eventually buy your used item, so please only submit excellent conditions and clean products. For shoes we can only accept submissions that have photos of inner and outer soles and heels so we can check the real condition of them. For hygiene reasons we can’t accept pierced jewelry.

HOW LONG IS MY QUOTE VALID FOR?

Quotes are valid for 30 days after receiving it in your email. If you're happy with our offer, we recommend accepting it as soon as possible to avoid missing out. After this time you will need to restart all the process and send new photos of the product.

CAN THE ORIGINAL PRICE I'M QUOTED CHANGE AFTER YOU RECEIVE MY ITEM(S)?

Yes, once you send your item(s), the price you receive is estimated, based only on the photos you have shared. Once your item(s) arrives at our office our team will start a physical inspection. If we find that the condition of the item(s) is a little different that we were expecting based on the photos you have submitted, we will get back to you with a new quote or with a request to collect the item(s). This situation can be prevented by providing accurate photos and information about your item(s) in your initial submission.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU RECEIVE MY ITEM(S)? HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?

We will send you an email to update you as soon as your package arrives at our office. After that, your item(s) will then go through our physical inspection and it can take up to 10 working days. As soon as your item(s) has been successfully verified our team will contact you by email with an update upon the approval of it.

HOW LONG WILL MY CREDIT BE VALID FOR?

Your M'A credits are valid up to 1 year starting on the day you receive it in your email.
