Love my made-to-measure Walberswick trouser in such a great colour! So many compliments on the style, cut, and mustard colour; a real addition to my wardrobe, so much so that I’m ordering another pair in dark blue! The staff at Blackshore are so friendly and accommodating, even to the point of providing buttons to attach my braces! Bravo Blackshore, I’ll be back!
I received my wonderful Ebbtide Moleskin Overshirt from Blackshore Clothing. It is so well made and the moleskin is extraordinary quality material. Just in time for the shortening and colder days. Thanks so much Blackshore. Ollie
Just received my first purchase through the post this morning - my dungarees are just fantastic. The quality is excellent, beautifully-made and fit perfectly. They are also original and practical!
Thank you Blackshore... I am looking forward to ordering a pinafore dress next!
My husband bought his gansey first - I was so jealous that he bought me one for my birthday. Excellent quality. It's a very heavy gansey - more so than the Gurnseys that Blackshore sell. This is what I/we wanted as we sail throughout the year we need a good warm jumper to keep out the cold. I can't wait for the winter to come so that I can start to wear it. My only criticism, is that it would be nice to have a ladies pattern. This is very much a man's cut - and for a man with rather large arms (I suppose fishermen do have bigger biceps than me!). I would also love it if there were different colours... but none of that stops me reveling in the quality of the gansey.
These trousers are wonderful. I wear them sailing from autumn to spring and they are so comfortable. They look great. The wide leg gives me total freedom of movement - which is necessary when you are sitting legs akimbo at the helm and leaping about the boat!. The thick twill provides a marvelous windbreak. Yes, they are the most expensive trousers I have bought - but without question they are a very good investment.
What a great jacket. Fits great - really spot on. It uses a heavier fabric than other worker/engineer jackets but it is soft and supple with it so the "luxury" description in the title is appropriate. The construction is also first class and a significant step up from other similarly styled garments. I also love that the provenance of the jacket goes all the way back to the cloth it uses and the mill in Lancashire. Looking forward to wearing this hard and often and also looking forward to adding to my Blackshore wardrobe.
To have something made just for me is such a treat…the staff, especially Cathy are lovely, thoughtful and so clever! My pinny is such fun and so easy to wear and is made to a beautiful finish - I love wearing it. It is so adaptable - T-shirt and sandals yesterday…sweater, leggings and boots in the winter hopefully. The fabric is gorgeous…substantial but natural and comfy to wear. All in all…well chuffed ❤️
A good fit though the sleeves could have been slightly wider. Nice fabric- soft denim. Good length as I am only 5ft. I feel the pockets are set slightly high up-just a small point. otherwise very happy.
Beautifully made, but I’d be loath to describe it as water resistant. A light shower for 5mins today and my shoulders were soaked.
Always wanted a Smock. Waited years. Went to Southold and found this lovely little shop. Walked in and looked at all the different styles and colours. Got measured and ordered. Oscar was a pleasure to deal with. One week later it arrived. Happy days.
Do note that “shower resistant” does not mean waterproof. Wore mine yesterday in heavy persistent rain and got soaked through. I’m not sure what the right weather for a rain poncho that doesn’t keep the rain out might be, but maybe it’s just for shorter walks. So the search for good-looking comfortable waterproof gear continues, having just made an expensive detour.
Visited the store and ordered one on the Thursday, hand made on the Friday and arrived on the Tuesday. Cracking service.Beautiful made with quality material. Looking forward to wearing it for a long long time. 😍
This is an outstandingly-made casual jacket. Can only recommend to others 🤓👍
My son loves his jacket and has worn it every day. It arrived through the post really quickly, the extra long arms and length means it is a perfect fit. Highly recommend.
I received my made to measure smock dress today. I’m delighted with it. It’s beautifully made and fits perfectly. I’ll be back for a denim one! Thank you!
My Dune Short Dungarees are excellent, really well made, very comfortable and fit perfectly
The service I received was second to none, did not have the exact ones in my size so had them made and
they were available within the two weeks as promised
So nice to find a traditional, enervative shop with high service standards to boot!!!
May thanks I will be using you again
Had some issues with sizing at first (my fault) but all helpfully sorted. Trousers are comfortable, beautiful, and the best colour. Already been tested out walking, cycling and generally pottering about. Going to get another pair.
I wanted a pocket with a flap for my phone and a pocket inside for my wallet, Cathy took careful notes and measured me up.
End result an over-shirt that not only fits perfectly but has pockets of the right size just where they should be. 10 out of 10.
The hat is great. I have a big head and Laura was so helpful in getting one made at 62cm - bigger than the standard sizes shown. Lucia did a great job and the hat fits really well.
Fantastic product and service. Bought for my husband for a surprise birthday present and he absolutely loves it! The quality is excellent and everyone I spoke to - several times - was really helpful. Would highly recommend.
I should have rung, to thank Cathy, it’s a perfect hat, I love my new hat, wore it the other day to garden in, it’s very stylish. Thank you
I'm 5'8" usually size 8. I was skeptical to get a unisex sweater but if you go by their measurements, it works out! The small was perfect fit. I love this sweater, well made, classic style.
