FAQ

ORDERS

Can I checkout as a “Guest”, rather than signing up for an Ibex account?

Yes, you can checkout as a Guest. However, signing up for an Ibex account allows for a much quicker checkout, as it stores your details for future purchases.

 

Can I change or cancel my order, including editing my shipping address?

Unfortunately, we cannot make any changes or cancellations to your order once it has been placed. In order to get your order to you as fast as possible, most orders are picked, packed, and shipped off in the same day as it has been placed. Once your order arrives you can return your order to us within 30 days of receiving the items. Please visit our returns portal to begin your return process. If you have any further questions, you can email us at hello@ibex.com

An item I ordered went out of stock after I ordered it; what happened?

Although this rarely happens, it is a product of e-commerce. While our website inventory is constantly updated, simply adding to cart does not take an item out of inventory. If multiple people have the last item in their cart at the same time, the 1 piece that is left will go to whatever order comes in first.

We try to be as proactive as possible regarding this occurrence. If this happens to you, we can either send you a different color, some store credit, or refund your payment method.

In order to qualify for that pricing, the items purchased must be in the same order.

If you're unsure about whether you qualify, please reach out to hello@ibex.com.

 

Is your product available to purchase anywhere other than the website?

Nope! Any Ibex clothing you may see or have purchased from an outside retailer is a product from the old version of Ibex. All of our current inventory can only be purchased on our website.

 

Do you have any promo codes?

We price our garments with their proposed value in mind - meaning, we don't overprice with the intention to discount. which is a very uncommon idea in our industry.  You will rarely, if ever, stumble upon discounts, since we're confident that our prices reflect the value that you'll receive from that garment.

 

My payment was declined. What do I do?

If your payment was declined your order was not created. Try other payment methods.

 

Do you take Afterpay or Klarna?

Yes, we use Klarna. Please see details upon checkout.

 

My order arrived and it’s the wrong item / size. What do I do?

Please email hello@ibex.com with the subject line WRONG ITEM / SIZE RECEIVED and we will get back to you asap with a solution.

If an item says “Your selected size/color is out of stock” can I order it and put it on backorder?

Unfortunately, no, we cannot accept backorders.

 

How do I return an exchanged item?

Please visit our returns portal to begin your return. Your order number will begin with EXC-IBX (ie: EXC-IBEX-12345-1).

 

Can I get a price adjustment for an item I ordered that is now marked at a lower price?

Unfortunately, we do not apply price adjustements to orders placed 48 hours or before a lower price is promoted.

PRODUCT QUESTIONS

What size am I?

See our sizing details by product outlined on all of our product pages.

  

What is an Ibex Heritage Classic?

Ibex heritage classics are traditional Ibex products from Ibex’s original collection. This collection features the remaining items from past generations—now available** as priced until they’re gone for good*.

 

*All sales are final because these products won’t be making a comeback.

**Sizing and colors for Previous Generation products will be limited.

 

Will you be getting any product back that you used to make pre-2017?

While we can't guarantee which exact products we will be launching in the near future, we can say that many of them will be past favorites. When we relaunched Ibex, we had to start with the basics (and could only choose to release with a fraction of the 250+ SKUs the old Ibex had) while also wanting to launch with some new products. We know there are many customers wanting a product from Ibex 1.0 so we hope we can accommodate this in the near future.

 

Why don’t I see my review online?

While we’d love to include any and all reviews, all submissions must adhere to the guidelines below before it is approved. Approval can take up to one to two weeks. We reserve final judgement on the approval and denial of all reviews.

PRODUCT CARE

How do I wash or clean my Merino wool?

The  beauty of Merino wool is that it requires less wash and care. We recommend you only wash when needed. We recommend that you wash your Ibex on a normal warm or cool machine wash cycle with regular powder detergent. Detergents should not contain softeners. Wash on a ‘normal’ wash cycle to ensure full rinse out of detergent. Don’t use fabric softener or bleach. Separate lights and darks as usual. Also, do not expose any Ibex garment to heat and do not tumble dry. Line dry or lie flat in the shade. Do not iron.

 

Does Ibex clean, fix, or tailor any product after I’ve purchased and worn it?

Ibex does not fix, clean, or tailor any post purchased products. If a product arrives damaged, please email us at hello@ibex.com with “Damaged product” in the subject line.

My old Ibex product is showing wear. Do you have a repairs program?

We're so sorry to hear your older Ibex product is showing wear. Unfortunately, we do not have any seamstress on hand to fix your item. While would like to have a repairs program in the future, it is not something we can offer right away, though we are working towards that as a goal. However, we encourage you to support your local tailor in your community (which is also much more carbon neutral)!

 

Can I use fabric softener?

We don’t advise it. Using softeners will coat the fibers and reduce their natural ability to breathe and thermoregulate.

 

Can I put my Ibex in the dryer?

We don’t advise it. You can put your socks in the tumble dryer however it’s best to line dry them.

 

Can I dry clean my merino?

Some garments are suitable. Check the care instructions for all garments on the care page of the website or on the interior label.

 

Can I iron my merino?

Merino is best left unironed. The natural Merino bounces back into shape easily after washing, so you may find that you don’t need to iron your merino at all. Instead allow the creases to fall out naturally.

 

Can I bleach wool products?

No – chlorine will destroy merino wool fibers

 

Pilling: How to prevent it and how to treat it?

Pilling is a natural process that can occur when shorter fibers are working their way to the surface of the fabric.

The best way to avoid pilling is to wash your Ibex garment within three wears.

 

Garments and Odor

Wool’s natural ability to manage moisture means odour-causing bacteria are stopped in their tracks. There’s no need to carry a separate laundry bag while travelling (or risk quarantining your suitcase). And you’ll get more than one wear from your shirt.

We strongly recommend that you only wash your garments on a normal cool or warm wash cycle with regular washing powder. Hand washing can enable a residual build-up of perspiration which could contribute to an odor problem.
