Love this long length rain poncho. Plenty of room and great fabric, good workmanship, loads of buttons and no Velcro in sight! Just what I like. My only suggestion would be having a pocket in front, making it perfect! 5*
Love my trousers. First time I’ve ever had trousers made for me. The team were great in helping me through the process, especially as I had sizing issues and had to send my first pair back. The fabric is amazing, though the colour a much lighter shade than the product image shows. I’d also caution on sizing as the cut is pretty snug. I’m usually a 32 waist and despite lockdown all my other trousers largely still fit. Having chosen a medium, I find they were closer to a 30 waist and now I have a large, though this does feel closer to a 32/33. All said and done the team were super helpful and the trousers are fantastic!
These were bought for a present; I was a bit concerned that I may have got the measurements wrong and, since they are bespoke, couldn't be changed. However, I needn't have worried, the sizing came up beautifully. The quality and fit are absolutely excellent. They came in really nice, but simple, packaging. Given that they were hand-made the UK, they were incredible value and look excellent.
So well made with amazing attention to detail. Looks really good and fits very well. Delighted with it.
I can’t recommend this jacket highly enough superb quality great style and a lovely fit. If you want to invest in a garment that is going to last a lifetime this is the one and you will also support a UK business.
Beautifully tailor made jacket. The weight of the denim is perfect, and it is really well made. A great investment.
This smock is beautifully made, lovely weight of denim and fit really well. The whole design is very impressive, stitching is well done and the three front pockets are a delight for carrying a myriad of stuff ! The denim is of a good quality and I am looking forward to it fading over time. I highly recommend this item of clothing and will undoubtedly be returning to the vendor for further purchases.
The crew neck Gansey is 'delicious', as it looks fab with the way it is cut, esp the light pattern on the hem , shoulders and sleeve cuffs. It is not as heavy as expected and the sizing is perfect, slightly looser fitting as I prefer. My intention was to buy and wear it day in day out as my primary top but now I don't want it to get soiled as it looks so lovely.
I would have prefered the orange colouring on the sleeve cuffs to be brighter but that in no way diminishes the jersey in any way and on second thoughts I have got used to it.
The only problem now is that I want another one!
Both Simon and Laura at BCC were brilliant and answered all my pre-purchase queries re size and fitting as I 'dilly-dallied' on whether to commit or not. I will def be back to indulge once again when I have enough saved up !
These trousers feel like quality. They feel solid and well made and they're so comfortable. My only reservation is that they're like velcro with cat hair. But worth every penny. Thanks.
Having lots of smocks this one is becoming one of my favourites getting better with each wash.
Lovely jumper - very well made and gives unrivalled warmth and wind protection. Just the thing for a stroll along the coast, or when the the boiler breaks down.
Not only comfortable but also look so good on. A really flattering fit and style and the material is beautifully comfortable
I wish that I didn’t have to wait for pair number two as I don’t want to not be wearing them
absolutely delighted with the demin smock and it has received lots of admiring comments!! Saving for next purchase...
This is a real discovery! A British-made traditional smock in top-quality denim which which be both a joy to wear and very useful and practical. `I only have to overcome a sense of reluctance to wear such a beautiful garment in the garden or doing other grubby jobs for which it is perfect (working in the studio etc) - I am very pleased with it indeed and have ordered one in twill for my husband.
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!
I requested bespoke measurements for the jacket, making the body longer to suit my taste. I was nervous that perhaps elongating it might spoil it shape, pocket placements etc... I needn't have worried - seamstress Cathy got the (slight) redesign spot on - and the quality is excellent. My new favourite autumn/spring jacket (in Scotland we don't get much of what you'd call summer). Total recommend.
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.
Just what I need for the summer in Scotland and probably autumn and spring as well
Stylish and practical and so easy to wear
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!
Beautifully made in England, this hat is definitely going to keep me warm all winter. Lovely fit and perfect colour ( I chose yellow)
Would definitely recommend.
