Do I need an account to place an order?

You don't need to open an account with Peter Christian to purchase our products. Simply checkout as a guest when you make your purchase. However, if you register with us, you will be able to save your billing and delivery addresses and other details for faster shopping in the future, as well as view your online order history.

When are payments taken for pre-orders?

If you like something on our website that is not yet in stock, you may pre-order the item for when we receive it at our warehouse. The order can be placed as usual using the payment method of your choice; pre orders made using a credit/debit card will not be charged until the item it is in stock and your order is processed. Please note that if you choose to use PayPal or Amazon, the total amount of the order will be charged at the time of placing your order.


Pre order items may be cancelled at any time prior to dispatch should you change your mind. Please contact our Customer Care Team to request this, any money debited will be refunded.


We endeavour to ensure that pre order items are available by the date shown. If there are delays outside of our control, our Customer Care Team will contact you.

Why does nothing happen when I click 'Place Order Now'?

This is usually because an item of information that we need from you is missing on the 'Secure Checkout' page. Often the shipping method has not been selected, or part of the billing address is incomplete (e.g. telephone, state, zip/post code). If an item of information is missing, a thin red outline will highlight the relevant section when you click on the 'Place Order Now' button. Please ensure that you have filled in all the required information.

Why didn't I get a discount on my first order?

You should've received an email with a discount code after signing up to our mailing list. Please check your inbox and junk mail folders. You must enter your discount code on the 'Shopping Basket' page. If you have already submitted your order, don't worry. Just contact our customer services team on +44 (0)1273 492 287 with the details of your order.

How do I reset my password?

What methods of payment does Peter Christian accept?

We accept MasterCard and Visa, these payments are secured by Sage Pay. You can also choose to pay with PayPal and Amazon Payment. You will be taken to the relevant secure website to finalise your payment during the online checkout process. Once the transaction is complete, you will be returned to Peter Christian's website.

How much will I have to pay in tax and duties?

Taxes and duties are then calculated according to your shipping destination and itemised at the bottom of the Order Summary page. Please note that UK VAT will only be applied to orders sent within the United Kingdom (excluding the Channel Islands) and to all countries in the European Union.

Where do I enter my promotional / gift code?

The 'Promotion & Gift Codes' box is located under your shopping basket summary. Insert your promotional or gift card code in the box and click 'Apply Code'.

Which items can I have gift wrapped?

Because of their size or shape, some items will not fit into a gift box and are therefore not eligible for our gift wrapping service.


Items that cannot be gift wrapped are: All two and three piece suits, coats and raincoats, jackets (except MJ34 & MJ63), bath robes, all men’s and women’s bags, and size XL and up in certain chunkier knitwear. If you are unsure whether an item is eligible or not, please call +44 (0)1273 492 287 to speak to one of our customer care folks.


Gift wrapping costs £7 for the whole order*. All eligible items in your order will be wrapped and items may be boxed together if no instructions are given. If the items that require gift wrapping are for more than one person please include clear instructions on the gift wrapping web page*.


Your order can be sent to you or directly to the lucky recipient but we cannot send parcels to multiple addresses within a single order.


* A maximum of 3 items can be gift wrapped per order. If there are more than 3 items in your basket, the cost will be higher. We will contact you with a price before proceeding.

What is a French Bearer?

A French Bearer is a special button behind the fly which helps to hold the front of trousers flat. This takes the strain off the fly which keeps your trousers looking smarter.

Can I order my trousers tailored to fit?

Peter Christian can tailor your trouser leg length or add brace buttons for just £7.50 per pair. Please request this service when ordering by telephone or using the order form in our catalogue. This service is not available for online orders. We regret that trousers that we have altered specifically for you cannot be returned.

What is the rise of your trousers?

The trouser rise is the distance between the middle of the crotch seam to the top of the waistband. Most of our trousers are generous in the rise measurement, our jeans are slightly shorter. We are unable to alter the rise of our trousers. If you would like an exact measurement, please let us know which style and size you like, and we can measure it for you.
