GALA UNIFORM FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ORDERING

WHEN SHOULD I ORDER?

We can not stress this enough... buy your uniforms BEFORE July 1st for Lands End and Michael's uniforms. For Lands End, if you order after July 1, orders can take up to 6 weeks to arrive. For Michael's, if you must go after July 1st, go first thing in the morning. Otherwise, you will experience long lines and delays.

HOW MANY OF EACH ITEM SHOULD I BUY?

it is really up to you and your family. PE is every other day so you won't have PE more than 3 times in 1 week. Some families buy 5 of each item so they just have to do laundry on the weekend and some buy 2 and do laundry more often. 

WHERE DO I BUY THESE UNIFORMS?

LANDS END: Online at www.landsend.com using GALA School Uniform code 900174764. Don’t ever pay full price - Land End ALWAYS has a sale. Get on their email list and they will send you discount codes (up to 50% off!). You can also call their customer service number for coupon codes.

MICHAELS UNIFORMS: The only approved brick and mortar store is Michael's Uniforms. www.michaeluniforms.com and they are a brick and mortar store located near LaBrea/Manchester.

HOW CAN I TRY THEM ON BEFORE I BUY?

LANDS END: We will have some sample sizes for Lands End at Registration Day but you will not be able to try them on.

MICHAELS UNIFORMS: You can try on the approved uniforms at their location. Please visit BEFORE JULY as there are long lines in August.

 

WHAT ABOUT SIZING?

LANDS END:  They will return any item for a full refund… even items with logos. To avoid return shipping charges, you can return items to any Sears.  Lands End stock sizes go up to a Women’s size 20 or you can purchase larger polo shirts in Men’s sizes.  If you need a plus size, Lands End can special order any size. For polo shirts, the "Fem Fit" is a more narrow fit. 

Lands End Box Skirt: These run big so order 1 size smaller than normal. The skort runs to size.

MICHAELS: They go up to a Women's size 20 but can special order any size. They make 1 "fit" in their polos - standard.  

WHAT MATERIALS ARE THE UNIFORMS MADE OUT OF?

In your registration packet, you will see a breakdown of all materials, sizes, and prices.

LANDS END: Polos are cotton. Interlock Polo is a soft cotton and Performance Mesh is the textured pique. Other items are mostly cotton or a blend. They are a high quality fabric and withstand hundreds of washings. 

MICHAELS: Their polos are a cotton/poly blend, pants are cotton/spandex, skort is poly, sweater is acrylic. 

 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY ORDER?

Due to the supply chain delays and shortages, this is approximate.

LANDS END: Because our shirts, jackets, and sweaters must have an embroidered logo, Lands End can sometimes take 2-3 weeks to get logo items. If you order between July 1st and the first day of school, it can take 4-6 weeks.  We highly recommend ordering BEFORE July 1st so you can return items that don’t fit in time for the first day of school.

MICHAELS: Skort/pants can be purchased off the rack. They do their own embroidery on site. If you know your sizes, call ahead and they will have it ready when you arrive. If there is a large order of uniforms ready for pick-up from various families, they will deliver to school.

CAN I BUY GRAY JEANS OR SKIRTS FROM OTHER RETAILERS?

No. It takes cooperation from every family to adhere to the uniform code. The preferred retailer is Lands End. The ONLY other approved retailer is Michael's Uniforms in Inglewood. No jeans, no skinny pants, no “cords”, no cargo pants, no holes, no other outside retailers. If you need plus-size options, Lands End will special order any size or please contact the office.

IF MY DAUGHTER IS ON ONE OF THE HIGH SCHOOL CIF SPORTS TEAM, HOW DO I GET THE UNIFORM?:

WHAT IF MY DAUGHTER DOESN'T LIKE UNIFORMS?

If you do not already wear uniforms, there may be an adjustment period. If you already wear uniforms, this is a piece of cake. Each GALA girl signs a uniform policy when they sign up for GALA and families are expected to adhere to that policy throughout the year. Please do not buy gray jeans, gray stretch pants, cargo pants, or any pants/bottoms that are not approved. Your daughter will be asked to have you bring her the correct pants. If you bought a hoodie in the PE room, they must wear the polo under the hoodie at all times. Not abiding by the uniform code means teachers have to take time out of their academic day to address any non-compliance.
