So soft, warm and snuggly. Looks really cool under a pea coat with jeans but would look equally good with a skirt I think. The size small was perfect for me ( 5’11” normally a size 8). The wool is so soft and the neck not tight at all - a slouchy relaxed fit. Love the different stitching on the elbows and shoulders - a quality item and worth every penny!
A comfortable, warm, well made, unusual, and most of all versatile jersey jacket. It's like something Brunel or any of his working class mates would have worn. Clearly hard wearing and weirdly Victorian in its style. Worn it every day since receiving it...casually, scruffily and, oddly, semi-formally, too. Outstanding piece of kit.
On a tangential note, my wife also likes the style but bemoans the lack of female models in the Blacksore catalogue. Bit of a wokey comment I guess, but the jacket is superb.
A few years back I made the conscious decision to stop buying poorer quality clothes and spend a bit more on fewer higher quality items; I could avoid the early burial in the landfill, maybe help work against forced child labor. It's been going well for me and I've been very happy with my newer purchases.
In recent times I have been looking for a rain poncho. I wanted something other that the "reusable" vinyl cheapies that end up straight in the landfill after a couple of uses and look naff anyway. I wanted a poncho especially because I often wear a backpack or carry a briefcase beneath. Not too long ago I accidentally ran across Blackshore and their awesome looking rain poncho. So I bought it.
The shipping was incredibly swift, only a few days from Southwold to my door in So. California (yes, it does occasionally rain here). Interacting with them was a pleasure (thank you Simon). The poncho itself is simply amazing. It fits great, plenty of room, very well constructed, dry, and will last a lifetime. I'm very very happy with the entire experience.
In fact, so happy that I turned right around and ordered the duffle (which i also fantastic)!
Thank you Blackshore!
I decided to purchase this Guernsey sweater as an investment piece. It is gorgeous, so beautifully made with attention to detail. A fabulous choice of colours and sizes.
It is extremely warm and i fear i may never take it off !
Really pleased with these classic moleskin jeans. A great fit and very comfortable. Blackshore took them up for me so they are the perfect length. Definitely will be getting some good wear out of them.
I was always looking for a jacket like this, amazing fit, keeps warm and looks great!
I bought this jumper a few weeks ago and have been really happy with the design and the quality. I love how all the products are made in the UK and some even right there in the shop!
Popped in the shop while visiting Southwold great products all manufactured in UK - great materials and fit highly recommended
Perfect size to keep all the important travel stuff together. Great big zip which is functioning smoothly and looks good.
Fast efficient delivery. Great bag. Built to last. What I like most is it’s simple, robust construction. Great range of colours...orange No, it is a good colour.
Our in shop experience was fantastic. We were made to feel very welcome with personnel on hand to enthusiastically explain the business story and products on sale. My t shirt is a quality item!
Good quality wool jumper. Wearable. Fashionable longer length at the back.
Really enjoyed visiting the shop, chat with with owners and purchase the duffle bag. This is a fun item which is extremely well made and durable. Very successful Xmas present.
Ordered the Gift card on-line. It arrived in seconds and was well received by my son. Thank you.
It’s knitted, not printed as stated, this makes it adaptable. More importantly, it’s very good quality materially and in manufacture.
Really warm, tough fabric, good accurate fitting. Now, when’s the blue version coming back into stock in a 40”?
If you like socks that are supportive, warm, breathable, non-smelly, tough and super comfy... then these are the way to go. Mohair (from goats) has a completely different feel from sheep's wool and performs much better as a sock material. Corrymoor goats are raised in Devon. All good. All British!
I recently purchased a handmade carrier from Blackshore. They kindly posted the item out to me which arrived so carefully packaged . I was very impressed with the item which had been made exactly to my specification. Being on the short side the bags on display in the shop were a bit too large for me. They very kindly explained that they would make one to the size I required. Excellent customer service! Would recommend the shop, the items on sale are of a high standard as is the service. so pleased with my purchase it will be used continuously.
Firstly, this is a great quality garment that is really well made, the materials are first rate and will only get better with age. I have been looking for a quality Chore Jacket for a long time and this is definitely the best example I have found to date.
Service and delivery has also been excellent. The packaging is a nice touch and I love the ethos behind Blackshore.
Points to consider, do make sure you read the product guide and measure properly as per the instructions. I am a big guy and the xxl/50 came up smaller than expected so unfortunately I will need to return the jacket which is a real shame as its a great piece.
