Thank you very much for getting the Annie jacket to me in such good time.

I'm delighted to say that it's a perfect fit (the sleeves are spot-on) and altogether gorgeous in every respect. The leather is super soft and very tactile and the sheepskin lining is deliciously warm and luxurious. It is also beautifully crafted and an excellent price to boot.

I think the service you gave me throughout the whole order process was truly remarkable and I can honestly say that I've never met with such a proactive willingness to be of help. You gave a whole new meaning to the term 'customer service' which, for many companies, is a complete misnomer. My husband was so impressed that I believe he's planning to place an order with you for a jacket of his own despite the fact that he doesn't really need one!

My sincere thanks to you all - especially Mr Jack Higgs.

Best wishes for a very happy and successful 2017.

Hi Jack/Rosina

My husband's jacket arrived on Tuesday and although it was his birthday today (24th) I couldn't wait to give it to him. He wore it last night!!! He absolutely loved it. He has wanted a flying jacket for many years and now he finally has one. It is a beautiful jacket, soft and very good quality. As usual the service was second to none. As you know I bought a shearling jacket for myself last year so I had no doubt about purchasing another jacket from you for my husband. You are a very special company and should all be very proud.

Dear Mr Higgs,

I would like to say a huge thank you for my wonderful jacket and your infinite patience. The customer service delivered to this old shopper went beyond the call of duty. You very rarely experience this level of attention going into store, let alone buying online.

I can't tell you how pleased I am with the product and courtesy shown.
The service at Higgs Leathers is definitely the benchmark that all retailers should aspire to.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your outlet to other shoppers.

Thank you.

Best wishes

Dear Mr Wilson

Somewhat belatedly I would like to write to you to thank you for your excellent service, your extremely helpful attitude and your wonderful product with which my wife is delighted.

It is, frankly, a relief but also a pleasure to deal with someone who still regards personal service and a quality product as important.

From this you will know that the second version of the coat arrived safely and we were very pleased with it.

Thank you and best wishes

C.S. Bristol, UK    November 2016

L.K. Czech Republic    October 2016

My leather coat arrived this morning. I am pleased with it and the fast delivery and service you provide. The coat is a bit smaller than I expected, as I had ordered a size larger than I usually wear, but looking at the style and the way it fits if I had ordered even bigger it would not have looked right. I was hoping to be able to wear a thick sweater under it but nonetheless a thinner one will do.
Thank you, I can recommend you to friends when they ask from where it was purchased.

G.K. Biggleswade, UK    October 2016

Just would like to say a big thank you for the fantastic job you did on my jacket. Am really happy how it all turned out. I also do believe it must of been waxed or treated before you sent me it, which wasn't expected.
Thanks again for the great job, and service.
Best regards,

C.W. UK    September 2016
