“From my first contact with you via e mail with a photograph of the swatch of the tweed I was attempting to find it was a most pleasant hassle free experience from start to finish.
 Your tailor has replicated the finer detail from my somewhat old  and well-worn Plus 4’S to perfection!
 Whilst the actual experience of visiting the shop was absent the attentiveness in ensuring all my requests were fulfilled was better than first class and a real credit to Sutherland Sporting Tweed”

“Just writing to thank you for my plus fours. I have had these for 3 seasons now and they still look as good as the first, well made, attention to detail and a great look in the field.

Thanks again!! More people and estates should know about you down here!!”

“My Deerstalker hat arrived on Monday morning - perfect in all respects. It is extremely well made and fits perfectly. I have had many deerstalkers over the years but I have been having difficulty finding replacements to suit me. Many makes come in small, medium and large and until you try them on you are not sure of the fitting. Making them in the traditional sizes solves that problem.

Many thanks for your excellent service and product.”

“I’ve just received and tried on the trousers and waistcoat, and am truly delighted with them.
They are very well cut, with super quality cloth, and all the specifications I asked for.
I much look forward to wearing them next week and for many seasons to come. Thanks for measuring so well.”
