Hi Jack, Anthea, Rosamund,

I hurried home from work this evening as I couldn't wait to see my jacket. What can I say? It's WONDERFUL!! it's a perfect fit, like it was made for me. It was all I wanted and more. I am a senior buyer for a living and I have to tell you that excellent quality products along with a ' can do' attitude in terms of customer service are rare indeed. I have found you all to be extremely helpful and courteous and prepared to 'go the extra mile'. I now have my dream jacket and it was truly my pleasure to do business with you. A family business that you should all be very proud of. If anyone is looking for leather or sheepskin they need have no hesitation in dealing with Higgs Leathers.

Well done and thank you.

Hello Rosina,

The trousers arrived yesterday. The final result is pleasing, the trousers fit well (waist and length) and the extra belt loops help maintain the waistline. They feel great to wear. They are a trifle tight on the thighs but that is the consequence of me having broad quadriceps my sport is long distance running. I expect they will gently stretch into shape.

I know you went to a lot of work over this with emails and phone calls and different payment methods. Many thanks for your efforts.

Kind regards,

M.D. Portsmouth, UK    October 2015

Dear Higgs Leathers,

I have today received the lovely leather jacket. It is exactly as described on your website and I am absolutely delighted.
Thank you also for the consideration in sending by Royal Mail and for refunding the VAT.
I shall certainly use your services again and will expound your lovely products to friends.

Kind regards,

Hello Higgs Leathers,

As I bought online, this is my first real contact with you. So I thought I'd let you know that my antique brown Jerry jacket arrived on time in a well packed box. Thanks for your fast service. The jacket is much better quality than I expected for the price and the sizing is perfect. I know where to come the next time I'm shopping for a good value leather coat or jacket.

Thanks again,

D.G. Cambourne, Cornwall   September 2015


I only ordered my coat at lunchtime yesterday, but I have just picked it up from the Post Office (one plus of island life is that we can pick up the next day's post at 5.15pm the day before!).

The coat is even better than I imagined - colour, style and fit are perfect. I will be wearing this an awful lot!

Many thanks.

L.L. Flotta, Orkney   September 2015

My coat: Doocie has just arrived and I am absolutely thrilled with it. Beautiful fit, construct and feel. It has exceeded my expectations and I will be singing your praises to anybody that will listen. Here's to the next 125 years!

Thank you

After phoning to order a marksman waist coat on a Monday, to be told out of stock, of the size I required. Than told would be able to get one for end of week!! Got a call to say it was in on the Thursday, paid for it, on the Thursday, delivered, on the Friday. Well pleased will both the service and the waist coat. I measured my chest with a thick jumper on at 40in, told that to the gent on the phone, when I tried it on fitted just right, for the fit I wanted. So all in all, 10 out of 10

Hi Anthea

I received my Debbie coat today and its everything i had hoped i can not wait to show it off. Thank You so much! the box was falling apart but the coat was fine, you might consider a thicker congregated box for your International orders and a heaver plastic protective sleeve for the winter season shipments.

I can't wait to see my Derby i am looking forward to showing it off too.

C.B. Catawissa, USA    July 2015

Dear Sir/madam

I am writing after the delivery 23rd July of my Shirley (swingback 3/4 length women's leather jacket). I am delighted with the superior quality of the leather, its color and the fit which is perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend your company for service, quality and efficiency and would definitely order from you again. In the future my next order will be for my husband he was so impressed with the soft leather. Thanking you for your help and service from a very happy customer.

Yours sincerely

S.B. Bude, UK    July 2015

Dear Sir

I would like to inform you that I have received my purchase of a Tan Leather Waistcoat.
This was for my husband who is very pleased with the quality and style.
The leather is such good quality lovely and soft.

Kind regards

G.P. Newport, Wales    June 2015

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have just received my order. It is always a little risky buying any clothing without trying on first and I have to say I was a little apprehensive especially on seeing the size of the box it came in. I should not have worried, the jacket is perfect, fits a treat and is supremely comfortable as it is more summer weight than I was expecting. Thank you for your excellent service and prompt dispatch. I will certainly be straight on your website should I be looking for other garments in the future - a tad too far to visit in person though I will not hesitate in recommending your company to others.

Thank you once again,

Best Regards,

J.L. Doncastor, UK   May 2015

PS well done to Southend United FC on their promotion, look forward to playing them next season as I support currently manager-less, play-off hating Sheffield United

Dear Jim Wilson

I am greatly impressed with the waistcoat. It fits perfectly, and allows me to use a watch and chain with the waistcoat opened or buttoned up. The leather is unbelievably soft, the buttonholes well stitched, and the spare button is a thoughtful idea.

I can recommend your firm to anyone, and will return to you before too long.

Kind regards

D.P. Limassol, Cyprus   May 2015

Thank you so much for the replacement leather jacket, as the original was too big. We can't believe how quickly the replacement was sent- the day after you had received the original.!!!!!!!

The service and quality of your product is second to none and we will certainly recommend your company.

Many, many thanks

To whom it may concern,

Just wanted to let you know, I received my parcel this morning and it's an excellent fit and beautiful colour, very good quality of jacket and as always Higgs keeps the standards and yet again a very pleased customer.

J.H. Newton Abbott, UK   April 2015

Thank you to everyone at Higgs.

I Have received my Brando nappa biker leather. My jacket fits perfectly and is so soft and comfortable that it feels as though I've been wearing it for years. A jacket of this quality for such a reasonable price and with the after care that you have I am amazed!
I Can't help myself from repeatedly trying it on. ( big smiley on face).
I will certainly be recommending Higgs and son to everyone who admires it as I know their will be many.

Very kind regards,

Hello from snowbound Connecticut, USA.

I purchased your Maria coat in 2012. I must say that it was the best investment purchase I have ever made. This winter here was the coldest winter on record... ever! My coat kept me perfectly warm in -12 degree Celsius during the day and -21 degree Celsius at night. I wish I could attach a photo of the 30 plus inches of snow in our back garden that we received from January 26th through March 5th. Even our Golden Marlowe cannot get through this snow.

I love, love, love my coat!

D.M. Connecticut, USA    March 2015

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for the recent delivery of the above item. As advised by your company the coat was delivered safely on Monday 23-03-2015.
The coat is lovely, I shall enjoy wearing it. The material and quality is better than I expected, especially at the bargain price I have paid.
A quality, family business, with more than excellent customer service is a real joy to find in these days of automated shopping, so thank you.
I enjoyed browsing your website and look forward to purchasing from you in the future.

Many thanks and best regards,

N.A. Walsall, UK   March 2015

Dear Jack

Well, the coat arrived this morning and has already been out on its first outing to the supermarket! Thank you - it really is lovely and much lighter than I ever imagined - super. It fits with plenty of room for winter clothing and hangs beautifully!
I'm hoping winter carries on for a bit!


J.L. Folkestone, UK    February 2015

Just to let you know my Gillian arrived safely this afternoon!

It is so beautiful , more lovely than the photo. Packing perfect as always. I just love it.
Is it better to store wrapped in tissue paper in a cotton bag or on a hanger in a cotton bag?
Do thank everyone who had a hand in making it for me

My best wishes for 2015

J.H-L. Le Brouilh Monbert, France    February 2015

Dear Higgs Leathers

I am writing to say how thrilled I am with my new Toscana Black Snowtip coat which I received the other day.
Your attention to detail has been fantastic with extremely helpful customer service staff.
Having bought several coats from Higgs I have always been very pleased with the quality of each item, well packaged in tissue paper with prompt delivery.

Thanks again

I just wanted to let you know that my extra long Trinity coat in chocolate brown arrived safely this morning and in good condition. It fits very nicely,looks and feels great and will definitely be getting a lot of use when winter arrives here in NZ!
Thanks for all your help

Kind Regards

D.P. New Zealand    January 2015

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to say that the coat arrived safely and it's absolutely gorgeous. I really couldn't be more pleased with it, and you were so helpful and friendly when it came to making the alterations, also during the second delivery. I can't wait to wear it, though sadly I don't think it's going to be in Berlin after all. The temperature has gone up to 2 degrees over there and it's due to rain the entire time we're there!!! What bad luck. A week ago it was minus 5 and sunny! Perfect Angela coat weather.
I'm now trying to decide whether or not to get a second one in black. Watch this space!

Thank you again and a very happy new year to you.
