Frequently Asked Questions
Where are your products made?
All of our products are designed at our headquarters in Los Angeles, but they are manufactured all over the world. Currently, we work with factories in Canada, China, the Philippines, and the United States.
Our decision to move a portion of our production overseas was made with great reluctance. We'd love to do all of our manufacturing in the US and would happily pay a premium to do it. However, to date, we've been unable to find a US manufacturer capable, or even willing, to take on the highly technical garments we've set out to make. The skilled workforce and advanced machinery to do so have moved overseas many years ago - long before we started Aether.
Quality is our absolute top priority. We are unwilling to compromise the integrity of our products in exchange for country of origin. Location will always be a consideration when selecting factories, however our focus will remain on finding manufactorers that have the most skilled workforce, advanced machinery, and technical expertise.

What size should I buy?
We spend a lot of time designing the fit of our products and want you to feel confident when selecting your size. There is a general Sizing Chart under the Info section as well as specific sizing charts on each product page with measurements for that particular garment.
Are your products backed by any type of guarantee?
AETHER offers customers a guarantee that our products will stand up to the rigors for which they were intended. All AETHER products (excluding knits) are backed by a lifetime warranty, which we extend to the original owner in order to safeguard against any and all defects in workmanship and material.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, no piece of clothing can, or ever will, last forever. Over time fabrics eventually break down, seams burst, and moving parts jam. Therefore, our lifetime warranty applies only to a reasonable expectation of the product's lifetime. This period of time is different for each product and is entirely subject to our discretion.
Damages due to wear and tear, such as rips, tears, abrasions, UV degradation, misuse, neglect or natural breakdown of materials over time, are in no way covered under this warranty. However, if you truly suspect that a product has failed prematurely due to poor workmanship or a defect in the material used, then we encourage you to submit it to our customer service team for review.
Customers are responsible for shipping items to AETHER for warranty evaluation. California State law requires that all items being submitted for review be washed or spot cleaned, in accordance with the particular product's wash instructions, before being sent. Our customer service team sincerely appreciates your cooperation. If it’s determined that your product needs to be cleaned upon arrival, it will be returned to you.
Our typical turnaround time is 6 to 8 weeks from the time we receive your product until it is returned to you. In rare cases, this process may take longer.
