Who is Youth Independent Party?

Youth Independent Party was founded by Krysta Lin, an Apparel Designer based in Long Beach, California, and her husband Matt Leaver, an Interactive Creative Director. Our mission is to provide better quality basics for kids, and to do this while having a positive environmental and social impact. We design and manufacture seasonless styles for boys and girls ages 1-10.

How do I find the right size?

There is a size chart on each garment product page with body measurements. If you need assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us.

I cannot find the style, color or size I’m looking for.

The colors and sizes available in the online shop reflect what we currently have in stock. Contact us if you have questions about specific products.

How often do you re-stock sold out items?

We will be restocking all colors on an ongoing basis. Once a color is sold out it will take between 2-4 weeks to restock.

How are you able to offer the same quality clothing as your competitors at a lower price?

We have been able to avoid the retail markups you normally see at stores by selling directly to you. Our line is not focused on fast fashion styles and the core products are always being replenished, eliminating the constant development and lead time issues and costs others have. We have chosen to use a select few core fibers to make our products from so our manufacturing and knitting times are reduced.

Where do you ship to?

Currently we only ship within the United States.

When will I receive my order?

All purchases will be processed and shipped within 3 business days of order via USPS Priority or First Class Mail. Orders are not shipped on the weekends or holidays. Customer will be sent a tracking number. Please allow 3-5 days from ship date for delivery.

Unfortunately, once a package tracks with USPS as delivered, we cannot be responsible for replacing if stolen or missing. If you'd like to make sure the package requires your signature for delivery, please email us at the time of your order.
