Frequently Asked Questions & Answers
Where is my order?
During peak sale periods -- including Warehouse Sale and Winter Sale -- it may take up to 5 business days for processing and an additional 2-3 business days before leaving our warehouse. UPS will then have your order to you within 2-4 business days, depending on your location If an item in your order lists an expected shipping date -- for preorder items and certain sale items -- then your order should ship 2-3 business days after that date, to allow for processing time.
My order is incomplete, where are the other items?
The missing items are most likely in another shipment that is making its way to you. Preorder items and certain sale items may sometimes show an estimated ship date on the product page when you select the size you want. These items are often shipped separately from items that are listed as “in stock” on the product page.

Orders may be split into multiple shipments and we only bill for items when they are shipped. The total of these smaller shipments should add up to the original order amount.
