When you purchase from any Always Wear Red collection you can be confident that you are buying-best.
Please use our bespoke packaging to protect your purchase and, with the right care, your item can last lifetimes.
The following information should be useful for you, even though the behaviour of natural materials is inexact.
Caring for 100% Cashmere, Merino Wool and Lambswool
Please don’t worry if your cashmere, Merino wool or lambswool ‘pills’ a little when first worn. This is a few loose fibres that can be easily removed by hand. In time, careful removal in this way will soften the garment to the touch, improving it with age.
You can press cashmere, Merino wool and lambswool, protected by a clean white tea towel, with a cool iron.
Whenever possible, please dry clean your cashmere, Merino wool and lambswool pieces from our collection. You can carefully cool wash our unembroidered cashmere, merino wool and lambswool pieces. Dry them flat, naturally - never on hot surfaces.
The best materials get better with age. Always Wear Red cashmere, Merino wool and lambswool knitted or woven are very stable so holds their original shape excellently. With the right care they can become your go-to item for many years.
Caring for 100% Silk
Always completely un-knot a 100% silk tie after wearing and place it back into its box or hang it up neatly.
Fold your 100% silk pocket square too, again preferably back into its original Always Wear Red box.
Cleaning silk is really hard. So the first principle is simply to take care when wearing. Please be careful when eating and drinking.
If accidents do happen, for 100% silk, dry cleaning is not your friend. And neither is blotting with water. If there’s a spillage, take your tie off quickly, dab with a paper towel and (if you have some) - stain remover. But as some stain remover discolours silk, that is risky too. Please be careful as we can't be held responsible for anything that might happen to your Always Wear Red Silks as a result of spillages or any attempt to clean them.
Caring for Merino Wool mix
Our Merino wool mix socks are just the right mix of Merino wool and a tiny bit of acrylic and lycra to balance comfort and luxury with longevity and elasticity.
A cool wash is best for these socks but up to 20 degrees should be OK.
BLOODLINE. Caring for our Bridle Leather products
Our leather products are made in London by genuine experts from ethically sourced, superb quality, genuine Bridle leather and solid pewter or brass fittings.
Please note that BLOODLINE products may have a wax coating that should be polished away with a soft cloth before wearing. BLOODLINE products may also change colour over time as they are made from a natural material.

ORDERING & PAYING
How do I order from Always Wear Red?
This should be pretty straight forward. Visit COLLECTION, choose a Product Range then a Product and ADD TO BAG. You are then taken, step-by-step through the payment process. If at any point you have a problem, please call Customer Care on +44 (0)191 27 66 904 weekdays, 9am-6pm (UK time) or email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
Is buying online from Always Wear Red secure?
Yes, very. If you have any concerns or questions please call Customer Care on +44 (0)191 27 66 904 weekdays, 9am-6pm (UK time) or email email@example.com anytime.
How can I pay?
Always Wear Red currently accept 6 different payment options in our online store: Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express and PayPal.
Can I pay you over the telephone, talking to a real person if that makes me feel more secure?
Yes of course, please call Customer Care on +44 (0)191 27 66 904 weekdays, 9am-6pm (UK time) and we will look after you.
Can I get Always Wear Red products from anywhere other than this website?
No. Everything is available exclusively at www.alwayswearred.com only (for now).
Will products be available from retailers in the future?
Yes this is likely to happen, though only from a select few premium brand retailers.
Are your raw materials really as good as you say they are?
Yes, they really are. And we like to quantify to help our customers to understand why we take the time to source so discerningly.
For example, our woven silk is '350-end' which means that there are 350 silk threads woven for every inch of fabric. We know of no denser silk anywhere in the world. What this means to you is clearer definition of design, richer colours and more stability. And our cashmere is woven from individual fibres in excess of 34mm each meaning minimal 'pilling' and greater product stability/minimised shape-shifting. Most significantly, 91% of the world's cashmere is removed from our supply chain before we make from the remaining 9%. We have also met and continue to meet all our makers regularly.
Why do you hand-finish in-house?
We inspect all our products inch-by-inch anyway so we decided that hand-sewing labels was something we could do at the same time. We inspect every single product very closely.
Are you committed to buying British?
Yes. We buy British whenever we can so that we can build close relationships with key suppliers. This gives us maximum control of quality and turnaround times.
