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.
I first saw one of these hoodies being modelled by Simon in the summer at Southwold, in a pop-up shop in the old water tower. The bride and I only popped in as I was interested in the building, but we soon got talking and the quality of the garment particularly caught my eye. Not being able to see any on the rail, I was advised that the hoodie was not yet in production and Simon was wearing a sample.
When I got home, I registered my interest in the hoodie and was invited to pre-order, which I did. It turned up a few days ago and it is an excellent piece of craftsmanship. I cannot believe that it comes with a lifetime repair guarantee, all for just over 100 quid.
I have not worn it yet as it is boxed away ready for gifting to me at Christmas. Something to really look forward to indeed.
It is so good to think the clothing from Blackshore is made by hand locally and not in some sweatshop. Keep up the good work folks - you deserve to succeed.
Worn it loads since I got it and just managed to stop my daughter from pinching it!
Looking forward to getting lots of use out of it.
Great to buy local!
Exceptional workmanship, ideal for my work as a Beekeeper presenting talks on the subject.
Pleasing clothing to wear, with the design originating from workers on the Suffolk Coast.
I have made further orders🐝💤
To me Blackshore's vision is traditional and modern at the same time and is something I am very interested in supporting.
The garments are very well made, fit well and the materials used are of great quality.
I must also comment on the personalised tags, handwritten notes and reaction to feedback which really made me feel like a valued customer and perhaps even a friend.
I love this bag, which manages to be both traditional in shape and materials, whilst being strikingly bright and attractive. It does away with the trend for clever little pockets and hidden compartments and just presents you with a large and versatile carrying space which you could taken absolutely anywhere. It's water-proofed (though it doesn't claim completely waterproof because it doesn't have taped seams. It'll do a great job for travel, work, shopping, whatever. Real rope and a real steel yacht cleat too: and made in a boatyard. What's not to love.
Beautifully soft. And warm. Clearly from different cotton to standard cheap ones.
And love the fact they have a unique element to the graphics.
This is my second Blackshore item, Goes great with either a jumper or hoodie and has had several favourable unsolicited comments in it's first few outings. Looking forward to seeing how this jacket will age, as my hunch it'll look even better with the passing of time!
Very happy with the jacket. Clearly a quality product. I originally purchased the wrong size, but it was no problem at all to exchange the product. I would recommend the company and look forward to buying from them again.
This is my 2nd jacket, I got my measurements wrong when ordering but Simon was great in getting me another despite my mistake.The jacket is now in almost daily use for leisure and business.
Quality of material and manufacturing are excellent, and I’ve now bought a pair of Walberswick trousers to go with the jacket. These will not be my last purchases from Blackshore.
So pleased with this superb quality product, I have it in blue.
Classy and a staple to any discerning wardrobe. You get what you pay for!
Great service from order to delivery, nothing too much trouble.
Thank you so much for this beautiful design product. It comes in great quality and with an extraordinary handprinted pattern. I am happy to recommend Blackshore to anyone who is looking for sustainable clothing. Please, please, please make more of these for women!
Good quality substantial fabric well made into an excellent jacket. Very nicely packed in a sailcloth bag and I like the touch of a stamp on the paperwork to show who made it. In my case, Kath!
Looks and feels super. Got me several lovely comments. Just has been a bit too warm lately to wear it as much as I would have liked! Thanks Blackshore.
The weather hasn't allowed me to wear the Gansey yet. Looks amazing and was presented very nicely. Thanks for the personal touch Simon. Looking to make future purchases.
Great unique little bag, perfect size for a weekend away! Bought as a gift for my fella & he loves it!
