FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

We get asked a lot of questions about our products, so we thought we would list all of the frequently asked questions below; of course if you can't find what your looking for just click here to get in touch. Please click on the corresponding tab below to navigate your way through the FAQ section.

 

  • How did you get your brand name?

    ‘Aye’ is a popular Scottish phrase - it means 'yes'. As we’re a Scottish based start-up, it was only fair we reflected our brand at root level.

    Where can I purchase AyeGear clothing from?

    Directly from our website or from Amazon (Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.ca, Amazon.it, Amazon.de or Amazon.fr).

    You made the perfect gear for shoplifters.

    Whilst this is not really a question, we get this statement thrown around a fair bit. It's getting a little boring so we look forward in seeing what you can come up with :)

    What payment methods do you accept?

    All major credit and debit cards are accepted. We also accept payments through Paypal.

    What countries do you ship to?

    We ship worldwide. All orders are fulfilled from the United Kingdom. All USA orders are fulfilled from our distribution centre in the United States.

    What are the benefits of using AyeGear?


    What if I order the wrong size?

    Do not worry about sizing, we have an extremely relaxed returns policy. You can easily send it back for an exchange, credit note or refund (this has never happened but hey!). Some customers tend to order two sizes and simply return the unwanted size for a refund - this is perfectly fine to do so.  

    Will you accept traditional payment methods i.e. bank transfer, cheques etc?

    Yes - we will assist you in paying through BACS or cheque. Simply email us through the contact us form or call us on 0844 414 8315 and we will advise you accordingly. 

    Why are your international delivery charges expensive?

    We don't keep a single penny on shipping charges. Due to the large size and weight of the garment - the charges are applied accordingly. The charges are slightly higher but we have taken some of these upon us as we feel that it’s only fair to do so. Alternatively, if you have a company account with a shipping company (UPS, Fedex, DHL, TNT etc), we would be happy to accommodate free collections from our premises (you will be billed for the freight).

    What are your delivery times?

    UK Customers have two options, the standard option being FREE. Delivery with this service takes 2-3 working days. Alternatively, we also offer an 'Express' service which is guaranteed delivery for the following working day - providing you make payment to us before 4:15pm. Saturday delivery is not guaranteed.

    International customers have two shipping options. The first service is Standard Airmail which takes approx 7-14 days (usually less) for your package to arrive. Note, this is not a tracked service. Our second delivery option consists of Airmail + Signed + Trackable service. The cost for this delivery option is slightly higher than the standard service. All orders received before 5:00pm will be shipped on the same day.

    Can I collect my item from your premises?

    Yes, sure you can (strictly by appointment). You are most welcome to try it out, view it and purchase at our premise in Glasgow. We are based in East Kilbride (next to the Coca Cola factory).

    Is the delivery method which you use secure?

    For sure. We ship all our orders out via registered and tracked mail to ensure you can track your package. We have sourced the highest grade quality mailing bags which are weather, burst and puncture resistant - ensuring that the garment is delivered safely without causing any damage to the contents within the package.

    Once your item is dispatched, we will notify you of your unique tracking number.

    Are there any custom charges to pay?

    If the delivery address is within the European Union (EU), there will be no charges to pay at the destination. If you happen to stay out-with the EU, you may wish to consult with your local shipping authority to see what charges will be applicable. We will not be held responsible for any charges that you incur.

    What is your returns policy?

    We are like yourself. We order goods all the time through the internet. We can't stand companies who don't offer a returns policy either (or a very limited returns policy i.e. 7 days). We're confident in that if your not happy with any aspect of AyeGear, we aim to offer a no quibble money back guarantee - 30 days from the date your order arrives.

    You can return your item(s) for exchanges / refunds / credit note simply by using our automated returns system.

    Are you hiring?

    We’re always on the lookout for talented people. If you walk, talk and sleep creativity - you need to get in-touch. E-mail us at info@ayegear.com (being passionate about pockets is mandatory).

    I've damaged my AyeGear garment!

    We don't carry any repairs in-house. We recommend you approach your local alterations workshop to get your garment fixed, whether it be stitching or a zipper issue.

Size Chart

Please choose the following product by clicking on the appropriate tab below to navigate your way around the sizing charts for each respective product. In principal, we recommend you purchase the same size you would normally buy as we have a relaxed fit style to allow for items to be added in the pockets. However, if you are looking to fill every single pocket then we would recommend getting the next size up. Do not worry about sizing, we have a relaxed returns policy. You can easily send it back for an exchange, credit note or refund (this has never happened but hey!). Some customers tend to order two sizes and simply return the unwanted size for a refund - this is perfectly fine to do so.
