Superb service

Great product locally made. Given that they are made to order could they be customised? For eg, with longer/ shorter sleeves, with a hanging loop ( inside or out). Overall delighted

Artist's smock/slop

The material used is top quality. The sewing is a "Mt Everest" - the best I have seen in a long time. The stitching, the spacing or measurements were beautiful. The color too is also exactly what I had hoped for. My smock was well worth the price paid. Keep up the good work!

This smock rocks

Wonderful product, tremendous service.
The Smock has that quality feel where you know you're going to be long time best friends.
Why more tops don't come with 3 pockets I don't know.
The wife even admitted to it imbuing me with a certain Picasso-esque look.
If you're looking for a unique, timeless piece that isn't a hoodie or a sweatshirt - this is the top you are looking for.
With regards sizing, I'm a 5ft 8, 44 inch chest & 37inch waist (on a good day) ex rugby player, and the Large is ideal.
Much Obliged Team Blackshore!

Smock

This amazing garment looks and feels like a tailored jacket and has such a high standard of fit and finish it’s hard to put into words how handy this smock is.

My Lovely Southwold Slop

My Southwold Slop arrived, beautifully packaged & was a joy to open. The quality of the fabric & strength of the garment was apparent before I even put it on. I bought to wear in the Winter in my studio, as my work is quite physical & I need something warm, but flexible, but I have already warm it loads at the beach & on a camping trip. I get envious looks whenever I wear it and I love it.
I am 5’7” and have an ample bust, so I had to force myself to order a small, but I had measured my old one, which equated with the ‘small ‘measurements. It fits perfectly.
I am a very happy customer!
