A pre-order is an order placed for an item which has not yet been released, or as in our case, has not been placed into a full production run and has not been stocked. Pre-order items are custom made to order. Pre-order items will be completed within 10 business days (or less) from the date of purchase. Guaranteed or it's FREE! We understand that most customers don't want to wait to get an item, so we will always complete the order as soon as possible. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding.

If this is a factor that keeps you from purchasing from us, please let us know. Your opinion matters, is valuable, and we'd love to hear from you. Contact Us

The main reason is cost, but please see "What is the progress of Above Clothing?" for more info. We try to keep our overhead low so we can keep our prices as low as possible. We are trying hard to stock as many items as we can. The reason for the 10-business day delay is that most items are made when they are ordered. The more orders we get for a particular item, the greater the ability to stock it. So please SHARE the item that interests you to help us increase product awareness and hopefully we can stock it.

Yes. When logging in, creating an account, and during the Checkout process, our website will switch to a secure connection. We use a strong 256-bit encryptrion SSL, which is double what most financial institutions use. A 128-bit SSL is pretty much the industry standard (for now), so a 256-bit SSL is probably overkill. We prefer to keep the important information as secure as possible.

ABOVE is a registered trademark of Above Clothing Company, LLC. based in Pensacola, FL. All ABOVE BRAND CLOTHING is designed and decorated in the United States. Most of the clothing we provide are made in various countries around the world just like most other brands. Our goal though, is to provide as much "Made In The U.S.A." apparel as possible. This is limited by manufacturers in the U.S. We spent a good part of a year researching manufacturers and materials that we felt fit our brand. The fit and feel, and the wear and tear. Unfortunately, sources are limited to a select group of manufacturers in the U.S. As we continue to grow, our plan is to have most of our apparel manufactured in America. That is what we believe in and that is the future we have for this brand.
We use water-based and plastisol inks, depending on the design and the material being printed. Water-based ink is our initial printing process, but plastisol ink is used as well. We try to use water-based inks intially for softness of the printed image. When we intend to have a bright white image, we do not like to have a heavy deposit of white ink that isn't allowed to breathe. Many of us have had a shirt that has a design on it that is very thick, like a patch, this is what we call bulletproof. It is very thick and when you sweat, the shirt will stick to you. This is the main reason for not using the heavy ink deposits of plastisol ink that are necessary to get a bright white image on a dark garment. Water-based inks allow us to have a soft-hand, breathable garment, and to achieve our desired, quality results. Keep in mind, that when you get a shirt like this from us, the ink will have a solid feel, kind of like paper, but will become softer with each wash, but it is breathable and comfortable. On a final note, when we use plastisol inks, we've been able to produce a soft feel as well. So, do not despair, the clothing you purchase from us will be comfortable and a joy to wear. We only sell what we would wear ourselves.
We are a small company and there are only two of us making all of this happen. Well, thankfully our family and friends help when needed. So, please keep this in mind and us in your prayers. Although the goal is to grow, provide jobs, and spread the Good News of Christ, we have been taking our time and learning patience. Although we might move slower than most companies, we intend to be here for the long haul and we do stand behind all of our products. Everything that we have has been provided by the Lord. Most people wouldn't even believe how the Lord has helped us with this business, but that is our Testimony. Want more info? Please visit About Us.
