We make all of our garments to order, which means order fulfillment may take up to six weeks due to the nature of our production process and shipping times.
Practicing lean method manufacturing (made-to-order production) helps us reduce and even eliminate waste in our process and operate in a sustainable manner. Thank you for your patience as we custom make your items.
Quality is important to us. We strive to always create the best possible product for you and to provide the very best in customer satisfaction.
Please allow ample production and shipping time for all of our garments and DIY Kits; production times vary based on type and difficulty. You will receive a notification to your email on file when your package ships.
Orders are processed Monday – Friday.
We offer free shipping on domestic orders over $1000 and ship via UPS Ground. Free shipping is not offered on international orders, nor is it offered on purchases originally over $1000 that discount below that amount.
International orders for Build a Wardrobe and Custom DIY are subject to a separate shipping charge. Our team will contact you after you have made your purchase.
In our continuing efforts to become a better company and commit to ecological sustainability, Alabama Chanin now ships UPS packages using carbon neutral shipping.
Carbon neutral means that a person or a company reduces carbon dioxide emissions to counter balance emissions made elsewhere. In the case of our shipping method, UPS calculates the carbon impact each transported Alabama Chanin package has on the environment. Then, on behalf of Alabama Chanin, UPS purchases a carbon offset for an emission reduction project somewhere else in the world, like the Garcia River Forestry in California.
When your next order ships from our studio, know that you are supporting carbon neutral efforts, offsetting your carbon footprint, and helping us to build a sustainable environment for work and life.
Every garment and DIY Kit has a size chart, with measurements, associated with the product. If you are not sure of your size, send us an email with your measurements and we'll help you find the right fit—or visit us in-store at The Factory for a custom fitting.
