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.

Stylish, comfortable but definitely not waterproof

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.

Cowl neck

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. 😍

Southwold Luxury Worker Jacket

Excellent everyday casual jacket

This is an outstandingly-made casual jacket. Can only recommend to others 🤓👍

Perfect gift

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.

Smock Dress
Abi Clarke
Beautifully made!

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!

thumbs up

really like it


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

New favourite trousers

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.

Could not have been more accommodating.

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.

Bucket Hat
Mr Mark Davies
Awesome bucket hat

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.

Meant to ring

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

Cozy and classic

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.

Award for finest jacket goes to...

Having researched French style worker jackets, I happened to stumble across Bkackshore clothing, and I'm very glad I did.

The luxury worker jacket is designed and made beautifully. The shape of the jacket is lovely, the cloth is thick, but soft, and the colour blue is gorgeous. The jacket is stitched together extremely well.

For me, this jacket is perfect. I love wearing it.

Thank you Bkackshore, for your attention to fine detail. I will purchase from you again.

Deepwater Crew-neck Gansey

I have just received my new Gansey and it is superb.
The quality of the pattern and knit are fantastic with the orange neck and sleeve detail lifting it above a standard Guernsey sweater.
I chose a 44" chest although I am a 42" for most brands and the fit is just right.
Good job that the cold weather has returned so i can go and try it out!
Thanks to Oscar and the Blackshore Team

Beautiful and authentic fishing smock

Delighted. Very tough fabric. Stylish neckline. Three deep pockets for dog leads, phone, string, secateurs, keys, anything. Very helpful people to check measurements. Delivered in under two weeks. Thank you Blackshore.

Rip-Stop Dry-Wax Poncho, Indigo, Handmade in Southwold
lovely thing

Great bit of kit. (Expensive but) stylish and practical. Very lightweight. Great that it opens/buttons all down the front - not a pullover. Sizing is generous - I'm borderline M and L, ordered the L, and could clearly easily have got an M. highly recommended.

Good quality, looks good, comfortable snug fit, and keeps me warm on a cold day


It’s a lovely jacket, warm and waterproof, the service was second to none. Good to be helping a local company ,.

Super smart casual jacket

My jacket arrived, love the eco packaging, I love it...Great quality and such a fantastic fit, I'll be wearing this a lot. Thanks Blackshore team.

A slop to die for

This has got to be the most comfortable smock I have ever owned, a bit 'crunchy' to start with but softens down after a few hours wearing and now I just don't want to take it off! I think I'll be wearing this most days.

I want another one!

Just love the feel, it's so comfortable and the fabric is so soft and warm. absolutely love it...

Hi very pleased with jacket. Ordered from picture and only read small amount of info. Not aware it was unisex , therefore surprised to find buttons on mans side. Not a problem ,will get used to this. Hopefully will be able to wear it soon and will visit you when we visit Southwold next. All the best . Karen Lewis
