We've moved!

In case you've been wondering, we haven't disappeared - we've moved!  We've got a fancy new website with a fancy new blog to go with it.  You can find the website here, and the blog is now here.

See you there!

How are your jeans wearing?

Since the start we have been providing what we think is a great pair of denims. Using a 13oz Japanese woven Selvedge denim and selling them "dry" the way you wear them gives the jeans their own unique appearance.

John Spinks and I are compiling a denim wear guide and we are looking for a selection of our customers Albam jeans that have been lovingly worn, washed (little or often) to keep a record of the variety of how each pair develops its own characteristics.

If you are interested in helping us out then please send pics of your jeans with brief info on how they have been worn, washed, how old they are and what fit they are. Send to info @ albamclothing . com.

New year, new opportunities

After another fantastic year, our store team is expanding!

We've got opportunities across the team, from part-time positions all the way up to managerial roles.

We take a lot of pride in what we do at Albam, so retail and customer service experience is essential; as is an enthusiasm for our belief in Modern Crafted Clothing.

So if you've like what we do and you're interested in joining the Albam family, send your CV and covering letter to dh @

Blog coverage

A couple of great features on Albam online today - one from an established favourite (Lineage of Influence) and one from a promising newcomer (The Gospel).

Obviously we're a bit biased, but we found both well worth a read!

Christmas Orders

Another quick heads up with regards to Christmas orders - as per our mailer, the last date for Christmas delivery will be 14:00 on Wednesday 22nd December.  Please note, this is via the 'next day courier' option, rather than standard (Royal Mail) delivery.

This will also be the last available time to order via 'collect from store': our Mail Order team will be off from this time, so unfortunately we will be unable to process your order.  Please also note that if you have ordered via this method you must wait until you have received a conformation email before your order will be available from your selected store. 

But in the meantime -for let's face it, this is still prime pressie-buying time- happy shopping!

Albam on Facebook

We've put a lot more emphasis on our Facebook page recently, and we're finding its a fantastic way of staying in touch with everyone.

From now on we'll be regularly updating on new and incoming styles, as well as answering any customer queries. It's also a good way for us to get a bit of feedback on how you all think we're doing: loving your Trail Parka, but not sure how to re-wax it? Want more colours in the Shetland Knit? Let us know! Our customers' opinions are hugely important to us, and while we might not manage to get back to every question, every one helps shape our future styles.

So if you want to get in touch, or simply want to stay in the Albam loop, join us here.

Late-Night Thursdays at Upper Street

Our Upper Street store is getting firmly into the Christmas spirit: we'll be opening late (until 8pm) on Thursdays from now until Christmas, and tomorrow night along with some of our Upper Street neighbours we'll be having drinks in-store.

We've had some cracking knitted hats and scarves in recently, so if you haven't started your Christmas shopping yet - or if you haven't checked out the store's recent refit - head to Upper Street before 8pm!

Vote for Albam!

Deep into Autumn Winter, and the brand's going from strength-to-strength. Excitingly, we've been nominated for The Telegraph's 'Best Small Shops in Britain Award'.

If you're a fan of Albam and would like to vote for us, visit The Telegraph's site here.

Thanks, and spread the word!
