Frequently Asked Questions at Always Wear Red

Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions section.

As people inside and outside of Always Wear Red ask us things, we post responses and resolution to recurring themes, here. For anything to do with delivery and returns, please visit our Delivery and Returns section. 


How do I order from Always Wear Red?

This should be pretty straight forward. Visit SHOP, 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 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 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 only.

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.

Why do you hand-finish in-house?

We inspect all our products inch-by-inch anyway so we decided that hand-sewing labels, leather patches and our signature golden ingots 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.


We want you to feel secure receiving communications and contacting us online through email and social media. So we have compiled an easy safety checklist to give you peace of mind:

  • Never reply to suspicious emails, tweets or posts that ask for your personal or financial information. If you are worried, call us. Any legitimate emails from Always Wear Red will always come from (something) and links in emails from us will always take you to a part of
  • Never enter your password after following a link in an email or chat that you are not familiar with.
  • Keep your online security software up to date. This will help to flag any risks, protecting you and your computer.
  • If you receive an email about an offer or prize that sounds both generic and too good to be true, it probably is! If in doubt, play it safe and resist clicking. Always Wear Red will email you if you win our competitions but it will be with a very personal tone and won't ask you for any financial or payment information.
