Gave them as Christmas presents and both recipients have commented very positively as to how much they are enjoying wearing them. Good on every front!
Beautifully made and fits like a glove, thank you Blackshore for making such a wonderful garment for my husband that will last a lifetime.
Good quality shirts reasonably priced. Made in UK, arrived promptly. Would be nice to have more colours to choose from. Would definitely buy from them again.
Walberswick Canvas Cotton Trouser.
This is my second made-to-measure pair, this time in navy blue. Superb, friendly customer support to deliver my exacting requirements. Fabulous quality, fit (like a glove) and time-frame to deliver. As delighted again as the first time round and so refreshing to deal with a committed organisation dedicated to quality, style, bespoke and customer satisfaction. I’ll be back!
Thank you Blackshore!
There is nothing quite like having an item of clothing made for you....the fabric is sumptuous and you know they will last forever.Beautifully made and worth every penny..
Beautifully made. However, if you have any arm muscles (and I am not Popeye) you will need to go larger on the size for comfort or be constrained every time you lift anything. When the shirt says 'regular' cut, for the chest and gut all good. I envisaged that it was a cut for active sailing (ie. for those who have to haul on a rope or row) but realise after wearing that the arms are really a slim fit (ie. for the cabin cruiser community who just lift a G&T - smile, that was meant as a joke). Not that at the price you would choose to wear this for marine activities.
Ideally in the sizing tables, there should also be an associated bicep cicumference as that will be the deciding size factor for anyone who is active OR works out regularly.
Would I buy another? Probably, based on the quality, will see how it wears. However, I will definitely call them for the arm sizes next time (if not included in the table by then - smile).
The helpful people at Blackshore sent me colour samples prior to ordering. Decided to go for the short chore jacket in fawn twill. I'm 5'3" and between a 10/12, went for the small. The jacket is a good fit, roomy enough to wear a jumper under while still looking neat. Sleeves a little long, but i'm happy to roll them up. Material is a heavier weight than samples which is good for Autumn and Winter. A very classy little jacket.
Good material, well made, decent price. Shrinks a tad in wash. Have to stretch a little when our to dry. Nevertheless, a solid product.
I had my hat made specially - it fits perfectly and looks really good
This has become my new favourite layer! Really versatile and comfortable - and I can’t over emphasise how amazing the front pocket is when you’ve got your hands full! My size wasn’t available when I visited the store - but my smock was made to order and ready for collection in 2 days - fantastic service.
I am delighted with my smock - it is a very simple cut, easy to wear as well practical. Great pockets, too. I am looking forward to many years of wear and I am thinking of buying another one!
I live in Texas, far from this sweater's birthplace. Nonetheless, I can vouch that is keeps one just as warm in the cold winds of the blackland prairie as I imagine it does on your blustery shores. I loved it so much that I bought two, and a third for my wife. Fantastic style, fits great, beautiful wool.
I bought my husband 2 gift vouchers for the last 2 Christmases. He has bought 2 lovely jackets.
I have a pair of great dungarees.
The customer service really First Class.
Excellent tailoring. Quality products.
I will buy from them again.
Measured my hips and delighted to find they are a good fit! Have worn then most days since they came. I’m getting used to the tie arrangement for the bib ,I Leave it tied so taking them down and up is a bit of a shimmy, and I have a lot of spare strap.
Simple, good quality, perfect colour (I went for mushroom).
It does have a very oversized fit, with quite a bit of extra fabric at the back and very long sleeves. In retrospect, I would’ve gone for an extra small (though a small was recommended by Blackshore, which was a bit frustrating). One thing Blackshore could improve is provide more detailed measurements for the jumper on the website :)
Really well made. Even though the twill is luxuriously thick it is soft from the first wear. I am looking forward to wearing it constantly and giving it that broken in look. I am a 38 chest and I found the S fits perfectly over a jumper. A great everyday smart / casual jacket.
