To all the team at Higgs, your service is first class, I received my black nappa leather trousers yesterday 10/12/13, I paid a little extra for them to have the smart trouser look instead of having the jeans, the leather is so soft and they feel great when wearing them, they are now in professionally having the length altered and cannot wait to get them back to start wearing them, another smart addition for my wardrobe and will go well with the brown trousers that I purchased from you, keep up the good work, many thanks

Hi I'd like to thank everyone who dealt with my order, for being so friendly and helpful. I really think that you all went 'that extra mile' to ensure that I received a jacket that I was happy with. Particular thanks go to the tailoress (with the smoking sewing machine) who managed - not only to shorten the sleeves for me - but to somehow reinstate the mock cuff detail. I can only think that the sleeves were shortened from the shoulder, and that's very difficult to do. Best wishes to all,

Would like to say thank you to louise for her all help and kindness she showed with my order of two waistcoats recently. They fit perfectly, and the quality, design and finish of them is something that your company should be proud of. From one, indeed, very satisfied customer.
P.H. Chesham, UK     November 2013

My new jacket arrived this morning and is beautiful. The fit is excellent, the quality superb. The service as always has been exemplary - fast, efficient and hassle free. This is the forth item I have purchased from Higgs Leathers and I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone looking for a quality product, backed up with a first class service. Thank you
B.B. Winchelsea Beach, UK     November 2013

To All at Higgs Leather I took my new coat for its first outing last Saturday, firework display in Adderbury. I am very pleased with It and would like thank you all for the trouble you went to, to make sure I got what I wanted. I love the shawl collar which doubles up as a hood. And adding the third button has made a difference, when I fasten the third button only it gives me a lovely wide shawl collar, and two buttons work just as well. Fastening all three buttons makes it very cosy. Thank you all for your 5* service. From one very happy customer, this is my second coat from Higgs and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from you again
L.C. Henley in Arden, UK     November 2013

Just received my coat, I ordered it 10 days ago -- with a song and a prayer -- a lot of money and I have never ordered anything quite like this before-- so I was a little more than anxious. And I was prepared to be disappointed and considered this a L-O-N-G shot! Well I can't believe this!! This coat will amaze wherever I go, it is as beautiful as I knew it could be, fits beautifully, the workmanship is impeccable and it is all you said it would be. I can't thank you enough, I will order again, no problem and I will certainly pass on your work whenever asked. Merry Christmas from Canada, and Happy Anniversary,
B.B. Canada     November 2013

Hi Louise
The Jackets arrived yesterday Monday, 22/10/13 in perfect condition, they are very beautiful quality as usual, I was so suprised to hear the door bell ring at about 3.45pm, and even more so to see they had arrived so quickly, the fit for my Sister is really good and She is very very pleased with both of them.
Thank you for you prompt, efficient friendly service. I have recommended Higgs Leathers to many people, all of them have been interested in visiting Higgs Leather Website, and telling me British clothing is so much better than here, even two operators at our Television Shopping Network, that has leather Jackets for sale from time to time were very keen to visit the Website.
I still have that Red Leather Jacket in mind maybe for next year.
Have a happy day.
Kind regards,

J.B. Ocean Reef, Australia     October 2013

Dear Mr Wilson,
Please excuse my tardy reply and accept my apologises for the delay in replying to your request for confimration that my order has arrived. I was absolutely delighted with my coat and matching hat, which were a birthday present from my husband. The quality is superb, the size an exact fit and the items were delivered the following day after I had spoken with the company. I cannot wait for the weather to turn colder to allow me to wear my coat and I will take great delight in recommending your company to my friends and family.
I wish you every success and hope I get a chance to order something in the future.

Just a quick email to let you know that jacket (The Rudi) has arrived safe and sound. I have had a quick try on over a thin shirt and there is ample room to allow me to wear thicker clothing during the winter. Thank you for a first class service and I will not hesitate to place another order with you or to recommend you to my friends.
P.S. Bolton, UK     October 2013

Dear Sirs
Just a note to let you know that the jacket ("Mitch") that we ordered for our son has arrived safe and well. I am delighted to say that the jacket fits really well, and we are delighted with it.
We will certainly recommend your company to all our friends.
Many many thanks for all your help. You have certainly been outstanding in our opinion.

D&E.C. Lockerbie, UK     September 2013

Dear All at Higgs, Just had an e mail from my granddaughter to say the sheepskin rug you provided " is the most lovely thing I have ever owned" so thank you for helping me find the perfect gift to let her know we love her. Also amazing delivery service, exactly at the time you said it would arrive.
J.H-L. France     September 2013

I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the service received from you with my recent order. I havn't come across or used your site before and had been looking for a leather jacket for my husbands birthday which is today. I placed my order for the 'Mitch'
long leather jacket late on Wednesday evening, had a confirmation email that night and an email on Thursday morning saying delivery would be made on the Friday. My daughter phoned me at work on the Friday morning to say the jacket had arrived. Having been disappointed and let down by other online services before, I was absolutely delighted and even more so when I got home and looked at it. It came very well packaged and protected and the quality of the jacket and softness of the leather was just as described and is far superior to other jackets I had been looking at in High Street shops. On another important note, my husband loves it and fits him perfectly! The only flaw he discovered was just inside one of the side pockets, a small area of stiching has come undone, but I think I can sort that out myself rather than sending it back. So all in all, I can honestly say I am delighted with everything from start to finish and wouldn't hesitate recommending you to family and friends. Thank you!

M.A. Chesterfield, UK     August 2013

JO Russia     August 2013

Just to let you know I received my order today plus I'd like to tell you that I was very impressed with the quality of the item I purchased for £99.00 I have bought leather jackets from other places for around the same price mark and more which were no where near the same quality.
It fits well looks cool and easily makes me look the part. The Jacket looks like it is made to last. Thanks for letting me buy the B52 Bomber, thanks for the 3r33 shipping and finally I would like to wish you and your company a Happy 125th Year Celebration. I will be back to buy again some day...

II Brighton     July 2013

I have been a customer of your shop for 40+years. Last month I was browsing your web site when I came across a leather coat in your sale. Now living far away from Southend I telephoned and spoke to an amazingly helpful young man who said you had just one coat left in my size and that you would put it to one side until I was able to get down for a visit which was over two weeks away. When I got to your shop and tried it on it was just what I wanted. The sleeves needed to be shortened and this was done before I had to go back to Scotland. Wow! What great personal service from people who are cheerful and attentive. Thank you all for making shopping so easy and enjoyable.
Best regards,

SS. Isle-of Bute     July 2013

Hi - just want to say thanks for the excellent service and the beautiful coat I purchased a couple of weeks ago. I can't wait for the right weather to wear it in-mind you, I am not wishing the summer to end for a while yet! I know I will be the envy of my friends. I can't stop looking at it at the moment and keep trying it on to satisfy myself that I have finally got something I have wished for, for so long. No more feeling the cold now when I go out.

SM Orpington     July 2013

I just wanted to let you know that the Utah hat arrived this morning.
I couldn't be more delighted! I had a cowboy hat that I bought in the US a few years ago whilst on a ranching holiday. I stupidly lost this recently whilst a little tipsy and was gutted. I tried several other companies and now have a couple of other leather hats which are too big for my teeny head.
Your website was great, easy to navigate and with helpful measurement hints. That meant that I was able to order exactly the right size. The choice of hats was also impressive.
Finally, the other aspect of your company which needs to be mentioned is the EXCELLENT customer service from start to finish. I couldn't be more impressed, the order was acknowledged, queries quickly resolved and delivery times adhered to. Perfection!
I will mention your company, products and customer service to my horsey and country loving pals and hope that they order from you too and are equally delighted with the process.
Hurrah for Higgs Leather and all in the team!

HR Plymouth     July 2013

Sorry to be so long getting back to you but the jeans FANTASTIC. Had to shorten them but as I've had jeans from you before this was not a problem.
Waist wise perfect fit overall product BRILLIANT. Yet again, no complaints. Looking forward to ordering from you again. After another leather shirt and tie now.

BC Manchester     June 2013

I received my order at about 11.10 am this morning. I am delighted with the jacket, it is beautiful and a good fit. I have to compliment you on the efficiency of your delivery service. I received a text telling me the day it would be delivered, a text yesterday to confirm delivery today and a text early this morning to give me a one hour window for delivery - absolutely amazing and very much appreciated, as was your help with regard to selecting the right size of jacket. Quality and service of this level is rare these days and a joy to find.
Thank you

SD Exeter     June 2013

I received my coat. I am so happy with it! I was apprehensive about ordering from you and it turned out great! Size was perfect & the leather quality was perfect...I will try and get my husband to order from you now. Thanks so much for delivering what you advertised. I had searched here in the US at retail and then On Line, returning everything from On Line. Your coat delivered what it promised. I am glad I took the risk!
CL Michigan USA     May 2013

I am very happy with the Hondo safari jacket which arrived today. Very very pleased, there is nothing disappointing in it, the size is perfect (40) for my use, which is a general jacket with loads of deep, secure pockets with the black leather style. The leather weight is perfect, not at all thin, but not brutal. I found a jacket exactly this style in an Oxfam shop a year and a half ago for a tenner and I've worn it every single day, which is why I searched for a better quality replacement. The Hondo is everything I wished for, the style is like a 1970's Belstaff biking jacket, which are horrendously costly nowadays. I use my leather jacket riding a motorcycle, not as an armoured crash protector, but as a practical skin with loads of pockets, worn underneath a large waterproof textile bike jacket with armour. When I get to my destination I take off the outer riding jacket and instantly feel comfy in the leather, with all my bits and bobs in the pockets.
The size of the Hondo safari jacket is exactly right, slightly oversized to feel a bit like wearing your father's coat and comfy with winter fleeces underneath, yet spacious enough to wear open in warm weather with a thin tshirt underneath but always a good secure closure and comfort for the colder evenings.
The build and materials quality of the Hondo is very good all around. I am very happy with my Higgs Leathers jacket. The only problem is there are a couple of other styles that I now would love to add to my wardrobe : )

CV Woodbridge     April 2013

Dear Higgs Leathers
Thank you so much for putting two new ties on the Shakira jacket for me. I just wanted to say that not only is your product beautifully made but also your after sales service is amazing. Better than any other company I have ever dealt with. You deserve to do well.
Thank you.

A.D. Glasgow     April 2013

I just received my order today of a 2XL Jerry jacket. The jacket is awesome! Your service is top notch. You are a perfect example of how customers should be treated, how to produce quality products, and how a quality business should operate. Maybe other businesses could survive 125 years if they would follow your example.

G.H. Duluth, USA     April 2013

Dear Sirs,
Just to let you know that the Alan jacket has arrived and is superb! Very pleased with the quality and fit. Another splendid purchase for a wonderful company. Many thanks

To Louise, Sales:
Just to let you know that the Natasha coat has arrived and is absolutely stunning. It fits as good as it looks, my Wife is thrilled and all is well! Many thanks to you for your patience in guiding me through the various stages. Let's hope the cold weather continues...!
The Courier company were very good too. They kept me informed of progress, gave me delivery options and ultimately were able to advise a delivery time to the hour. All in all it has been a pleasure to do business with you all and very impressive...!
Thank you again, kind regards

Dear Higgs
Thank you. Waistcoat arrived safely. Very delighted with it. Excellent quality, perfect fit. It was a pleasure to do business with you. Hope to order again in the future.
With very best wishes

K.M. Salford, UK     March 2013

Dear Sir/Madam,
This has been the first time I have dealt with Higgs, and I must say the service you provide is more than excellent. I had cause to return the coat for a minor thing and the way you dealt with it was incredible.
Particular thanks to Anthea for the way she arranged things, she is not only polite, but efficient as well. I have no hesitation in recommending your coats and company to all I know.
Many thanks

H.B. Angmering, West Sussex, UK     February 2013

Dear Higgs Leathers,
Firstly, your size estimate from the measurements I forwarded has proven to be accurate. Secondly, so impressed is my girlfriend not only by the fit, but also the colour, that she has indicated her desire to keep the leather trousers you sent and not return them.
And I will certainly not raise any objections because she looks fabulous in them. Many thanks for your prompt responses to correspondence and quick delivery of the goods. We may well do business again in the future.

T.C. Belfast, UK     February 2013

Hi Jim and crew,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the AMAZING Toscana coat and matching hat. They arrived safely and are now perfect the colour, fit, size, and quality were well worth the wait. Also I would like to congratulate you on your customer service, always helpful, understanding, and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble for you chaps.
Thanks again

T.F. Waterlooville, UK     February 2013

I came over from Germany to England last week (Jan 2013) and found by accident your shop, after going in the selection was fantastic! The staff were very helpful and friendly and I found exactly what I needed and wanted. Even my size XXXXXL was not a great problem and the sales lady knew exactly where everything was (clever lady).
Now I am back in Germany and my new Sheepskin Jacket "Rudi" as turned out to be a really good investment against the cold German winters, it is extremely warm and the wind doesn't go through the jacket at all. All good things in life have their price and this one of the things that is well worth it!
Ps. Everybody says the jacket looks great

NH Germany    February 2013

Just received my Hurricane Flying Jacket. Wow! I am really pleased with it. The picture on the web-site doesn't do it justice! The leather is really soft and pliable and the tan fleece is a lovely rich colour. Thanks for all your help regarding the size. Am now awaiting some dry weather - not bothered about the cold! - to get out the little sports car! Will certainly recommend you to anyone who expresses an interest. All good wishes for 2013 to all at Higgs Leathers!
