Should I select signature requirement at checkout?
For customers who prefer a secure method of delivery for orders under $500, we offer a shipping option with signature requirement at checkout "Ground Shipping w Signature" for a $10 fee. If the signature option is waived at checkout, the carrier will leave the package at your shipping address with no further supervision. Please note if you do not opt for the signature requirement, Carhartt WIP will not be liable for any lost or stolen packages during transit.
What happens to my order if I am not at home when it is delivered?
At the UPS driver's discretion, the package can be left in a safe place at the shipping address provided. This could include the front porch, side door, back porch, garage area, or with a neighbor or leasing office (which would be noted in a UPS notice left by the driver).
If you anticipate that you may not be home when delivery is expected, we suggest contacting UPS to request they hold the package for you to pick up from a UPS location or access point.
I didn't receive my order and the tracking mentioned that my package was dropped at the front door. Can you help?
Once a package has left our warehouse, please contact UPS directly regarding delivery issues. We suggest first checking with your neighbors to see if the package was incorrectly delivered. Otherwise, it's possible that UPS still has possession of your package and will deliver it later that day. If your order has still not been delivered, please start a claim via UPS for them to investigate the whereabouts of your package. Please note that this process can take 7-10 business days. Contact email@example.com for further assistance.
What happens if my package is lost or stolen?
If you are able to, we recommend safely checking with neighbors or around the area in case it was mistakenly delivered. Sometimes, the order can even be mistakenly scanned as delivered but the UPS driver is still in possession of the item. In these cases, the order is sometimes delivered within a few days. If you are unable to check with neighbors or believe the package has been lost or stolen, please contact UPS to submit a claim for a "lost package" at least one day after the delivered date using your tracking number and any questions regarding delivery. Please let our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org know once the claim has been submitted and you have received a response from UPS.
What if there is no shipping to my country of residence?
You are currently viewing the US version of the Carhartt WIP online store. We are only able to ship to the USA & Canada. If you are not located within these countries please visit the global version of Carhartt WIP. If you are having issues locating the correct website, please contact customer service.

6. Products & Product Care
How often are items restocked?
To be notified if a specific style and size is restocked, please sign up for a back in stock notification email on the item's product page. If this option is unavailable, the item will not be restocked. Please note there is no guarantee an out-of-stock item will be available again.
Which jacket is the warmest ?
Our down or feather-filled and lined jackets are our warmest. We also offer Thinsulate® lined jackets (Nimbus Pullover, Active Jacket, Vest) that provide comparable warmth in a slimmer silhouette. Please reach out to customer service at email@example.com for any further questions.
Do Carhartt WIP garments have to be washed before being worn for the first time?
Because we treat our garments with color, we recommend that you wash any item before wearing it for the first time. Please check the individual washing instructions for each item. This does not apply to rigid / rinsed denim pants.
Please note that untreated and unwashed pants require special care. Denim should be washed as little as possible in order to avoid shrinking and fading. If you purchase denim pants, you should not wash them during the first 9-12 months. If, however, you need to wash the pants, you will find tips on how to do so under the section, “How should garments be washed.”
How should garments be washed?
Every item of clothing includes a label noting the particular instructions for care. The recommended temperature should not be exceeded. It is also ok to wash our clothes at a lower temperature to the one stated in the washing instructions. We suggest hanging or laying items flat to dry.
Rigid / rinsed denim:
- Always wash inside out
- Wash separately from other garments
- Leave in a bath of cold water with a mild liquid detergent for approximately 30 minutes
- Stir gently before finishing the wash in order to remove deposits
- Hang to dry
Please also note that rigid pants bleed out heavily if they are mishandled. This is because we use indigo, a natural dye. You should also keep these pants away from lightly colored objects, furniture, and garments. You can leave the pants in normal household vinegar for a few hours to help maintain the color

We recommend washing knitted garments made of wool by hand, since they are also too sensitive for washing machines which have a gentle hand wash function.
7. Production Methods
What kind of leather does Carhartt WIP use for its products?
We only use leather sourced as a byproduct of farm animals that are reared for their meat. We do not use leather sourced from endangered species.
Does Carhartt WIP use down produced using live plucking methods?
We only use down as a byproduct of farm animals that are reared for their meat. We do not condone or support live plucking procedures.
