Dear Higgs Leathers
I have had a rather shabby leather jacket for many years. and over time I lost some weight and had taken the seams in. I have sewn buttons on several times recently and have been in need of a new jacket for some months. I am disabled and find shopping in the high street rather taxing, so I tend to shop on-line, but up until now hadn't been confident or happy with the leather jackets I had found...........until last weekend when I found the perfect item on your website.
I was especially happy with the sizing information as I can be in-between sizes at times. I showed it to my husband when he came home (who buy the way started me off looking when he had put me onto another site), but as I had said wasn't perfectly happy with what I found.
I have to say I have taken delivery of 'Olivia' this morning and I am really pleased. i tried it on with my fleece which I am wearing at the moment to keep warm and it fitted a treat. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point my husband also buys a new leather jacket from yourselves. I will be 60 yrs old in 2 wks and my husband is taking me away in the sun next week, but will look forward to wearing my new jacket when we go out in the new year.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much, and to wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

Just to confirm that the Charles leather blouson jacket arrived safely within the time specified today. The jacket fits perfectly, is stylish and well made - my husband is delighted with it.
Dealing with Higgs Leather has been a positive experience from our first inquiry to the actual delivery. We have been kept up-to- date with the progresss of the order throughout. Wouldn't hesitate to order online with the company in the future. Thanks for a good shopping experience!

Dear Louise and team
My coat arrived today. Beautifully packed and thank you for the Cherry blossom protector and suede cleaner. I am OVER THE MOON with my gorgeous coat! Thank you so, so much. It fits perfectly, by which I mean it is nice and loose which is what I wanted so I can wear my 3 jumpers under it if I want and can move freely without restriction.
I love the cuffs so I can adjust the sleeve length, and the way it closes at the neck means I will be toasty warm however cold this Welsh mountain gets. It is much lighter in weight than I expected, which I thrilled about, and the quality of the skins are heavenly and much finer than I dreamed of. I cannot praise your company enough. Please tell the person who made it that he or she is a true Master Craftsman (a rare thing) and I will certainly be telling all my friends about Higgs.
I greatly appreciated your guarantee and repair service, as I will treasure this coat for many years. Louise, you have been such a delight to deal with, with your kindness, patience and warmth. I have longed for a sheepskin coat for years, and I could not be happier. With many thanks to you all
Kindest regards.

Dear Jack
A huge thank you for the 'Caroline' coat that arrived the other day. It is stunning - perfect length, perfect weight, perfect colour, perfect fit. It looks superb with jeans but I can see that I can also wear it in the evening.
I would like to thank you in particular for your superb customer service in adjusting the length for me generously free of charge; and for your fast completion. This is my second coat from Higgs (and I hope, not the last!). I cannot recommend you highly enough for quality, cost, attention to detail. I felt valued and welcome as a customer - that's a great feeling!
Best wishes

K.B. Milnathort, UK      November 2012

Many, many thanks for my wonderful coat. I love it!!
I can't remember the last time I dealt with such a courteous team. It has been a pleasure dealing with the company. I shall certainly recommend you to my friends and family.
Yours sincerely
Thank you

G.L. London, UK      October 2012

Thank you for my order, which arrived yesterday just before noon as anticipated.
Your website is good but in no way does it do justice to your products. Everything is even nicer than I expected (the Sidera coat is exquisite), fits perfectly, is beautifully made with every attention to detail, and packed so thoughtfully to reach me in perfect condition. I despair of this country at times and had begun to think that such traditional quality was no longer available, at least, not at prices that I can afford.
Once again, many thanks.

M.L. Lutterworth, UK      October 2012

I've bought two coats from you in the past, and had custom-made hoods added to them later. Your products and service are always excellent, so when I wanted sheepskin mittens I went direct to your website.
I found myself in some doubt about size, so rang your shop for advice. I am well aware how very busy Saturdays are at the shop, but despite this (and despite the small value of the mittens) the gentleman took the trouble to find a member of staff with hands the same size as mine, and returned to me with full information on the fit and colour.
This is so much appreciated! I now live in Northumberland - just a little too far to travel to you - and am so pleased to have the mittens on order.
Many thanks.

J.O. Hexham, UK      October 2012

I've just taken delivery of my new coat, ordered from you only a week ago. I was a bit concerned at how small and light the delivery box was considering it was holding a large ladies 3/4 sheepskin coat - but oh my goodness what a fantastic garment it is! Light and roomy but so very warm. No restriction on movement or heavy weight like my ancient sheepskin coat from years ago.
Thank you ever so much. It was an investment that I will treasure over the years. Great service and a beautiful product. My other half is already talking about what coat he would like to have.

S.R. Darlington, UK      September 2012

just want to say a massive thanks for the 1st rate customer service received, gents biker leather with fringes arrived safe and well and I love it, lovely looking jacket at a great price, leather is better quality than I was expecting for the price. Just the job for a late 30's heavy rocker trying to rediscover his youth lol will be giving you guys plenty of plugs on facebook and will certainly buy from you again
kind regards

Dear Joel
Just letting you know that this afternoon the red Janet coat arrived (just 5 days after you sent it) and I have to say how thrilled I am with the quality and the stitching and overall look of it. I've told several of my friends about it and will be taking it on its first outing tomorrow to show it off!!
As this has been such a painless process due to your helpfulness, I will definitely be ordering some more goodies in the next four or five months. Don't be surprised if you get a few orders from New Zealand in the next little while, as some of my friends have (like me) been looking for well made and affordable leather clothing but haven't been able to find it. Thanks to everyone involved again.
Yours sincerely

D.P. New Zealand      August 2012

My kidskin jacket, only ordered on Tuesday 10th (evening), arrived this morning, within the hour which had been notified to me!!
Absolutely fantastic service. I am delighted with the jacket and can't wait to wear it. The sizing instructions on the website are excellent, as the jacket is a great fit. I will definitely be ordering again from Higgs.
Thank you very much

Alright Jim & Team
I bought a pair of black leather trousers and a black leather jacket from you years ago when we were down on holiday and just wanted to say cheers and congratulations on a great range of quality, well-made gear. My wife was a bit unsure at the time as she thought they were 'too good value for money' ie that they wouldn't last. Well a good few years later they're both in perfect nick and looking better the older they get.
They look as good as any of the designer leather you pay a fortune for. I've already had my moneys worth out of both trousers and jacket but they'll last forever at this rate. I've got a 17 year old lad who is now showing an interest and has been nicking off and wearing my leather trousers - he gets as many compliments on them as I do. No doubt he will put them to the test..
I might have to buy him his own pair so we don't fall out!
And just as a note for anyone in two minds that are buying off the internet and can't see or feel the quality firsthand - don't delay, they are even better than they look and you would be happy to pay twice the price for clothing as good as this.
Cheers again

Before ordering my Hoodz jacked from you I seriously considered splashing out �1890 on a Gucci biker jacket. To check you out I ordered a Texan hat - it's great and I've ordered a Stetson for a mate. The Hoodz is everything you would want in a quality item - stylish and adaptable with the removable hood. I'm glad I found Higgs Leathers for so many reasons.

B.A. Kirkcaldy, Scotland, UK      June 2012

Just letting you know that I received the pair of leather trousers and I had the trousers shortened professionally and I am letting you know that they are an excellent fit and very comfortable to wear. Your sales service is good and efficient and the telephone callers are treated in a very professional way.
You provide a good quality service and good quality goods. Thanks. Please post this comment on your testimonial page

Dear Mr Jim Wilson
Many thanks to you and your colleagues for the Schula jacket which arrived today in plenty of time for my wife's 70th birthday. Special thanks to Louise who was very helpful during our telephone enquiry.
My wife says the jacket is exactly as she imagined and she is now waiting for some better weather so that she can show off!

Dear ladies and gentlemen of Higgs Leathers
I have recently received my sheepskin coat which I ordered from yourselves. When the parcel arrived I could'nt wait to unpack it, it was a bit like Christmas, opening the box, sifting through the layers of tissue paper. And there it was, my absolutely fabulous coat. It was just as I expected it to be, and more.
Thankyou so much for your prompt actions, and the service you offer is exceptional . I have purchased from you on a previous occasion and will not hesitate to do so again.
Thankyou again
Yours faithfully

Hi Anthea,
Just a huge thank you, wow my clothes arrived yesterday and they look fantastic, I just love, love them all, very, very nice, the workmanship is great and the feel of the leather is so soft and the coat is down to the ground, which looks fab.
Everything fits me, the gloves could be a bit large but I'll know next time.
I wore my skirt today and it look great with by boots. How do I hem by pants, they just need the tinny little bit turned under? Well many thanks again to everyone who has gone to the trouble to get it to me for my birthday which isn't until next Tuesday.

L.F. Gloucester, Australia      April 2012

Dear team
Coat has arrived! Looks fantastic! It wasnt the colour I expected, but I love it! it goes with the red in my hair, very foxy! nice long arms, and i can stretch to lift my harp, excellent work, beautifuly made and makes me feel like the queen of sheba. :)
I will make sure i save, so that if I need another coat i can order it from you, i just need to hide the invoice from the rest of the family. thank you again for making a cold lady, who hates welsh weather, very warm and look extremely classy/ casual/ surfer babe/ whichever takes my fancy.
I am indebted to your skills, and wonderful customer service. Best wishes to all of you and a hundred thank yous.

Dear 'Higgs Leather',
The waistcoat arrived today, I couldn't be more pleased, it looks good, and smells divine!!!! I really will have to look on your web site again to see what else I might just fancy!!!

P.T. Buxton, UK      March 2012

Dear Higgs Leathers,
Just a little note but with a big thankyou for sending me my replacement coat I love it and it fits perfectly. As I made such a hash of ordering the correct size I must add how helpful and friendly I found your sales lady and how prompt and organised I found the whole service you provide, let alone the quality and condition of my coat.
I had the exact coat in the eighties and had been looking for another and was thrilled to find it on your website as my birthday present. I have not mentioned how reasonable i found my purchase too i feel sure my original one was a similar price and that was 30 years ago. Thank you for your patience with regard to my sizing once again i shall recommend you without question and feel free to add me to your reviews if you wish.
p.s. Your delivery system and times is spot on.
With gratitude

L.D. York, UK      March 2012

Thanks. Jacket arrived today as promised. Fits really well. This jacket I ordered for a bit of fun and going to parties and such. I'm pleased with the fit and quality and have ordered another more expensive one for every day wear.
I was born and brought up in Southend and I have a jacket I bought in your shop about 1985 - It's still in near perfect condition apart from some wear to the lining and the loop to hang it up by has come off. I like it so much I only wear it on special occasions!
Really glad to find you are still in business. I will recommend you to anyone who asks about the fringed jacket (they will!)
Kind Regards

P.T. Caernarfon, Wales, UK      February 2012

Received right on time, brilliant jacket which replaces my 25year old one. Quality jacket,and quality service thankyou very much. Will definetely recommend.

Dear Mr Wilson,
Thank you for your email. I thought you might like to read a story about my coat. As I said in my first email I was delighted with it. Every Friday night we walk to our local for a meal and a nice bottle of wine. Of course I wore my coat last week. It slipped off the peg where I had hung it and was caught by another customer who eats there regularly with his wife and son. As he handed it to me he said, "What a beautiful coat!"
I agreed with him and explained that I was particularly pleased as I had bought it from a website without having tried it on. He then examined the coat in detail, telling me how well made it was and showing me the details that show the quality of the finish. He then explained that although he has been here for 5 years his family have a sheepskin company in Street.
He told us about the history of the sheepskin business around Glastonbury, explained the difference between British and Icelandic sheepskin and the number of skins required to make one coat.
Although his comments only reinforced my feeling that my coat is what I would term "the business", it was nice to have it confirmed. Having learnt how much there is to the making of the garments I now understand why sheepskin coats are so special.

C.M. Larne, Northern Ireland, UK      February 2012

I bought a sheepskin flying jacket about 2 years ago, a long haired one - hard wearing. Everywhere I go complete strangers comment on the jackets exceptional looks and self evident quality everywhere I go.
I've been asked walking down the road where I got it from, and one person actually stopped his car and started a discussion about the jacket.
It's very warm and has proven itself to be a great investment for these cold winters - a style that never goes out of fashion (fashion proof) and very practical.

N.T. Birmingham, UK      February 2012

Hi Higgs
I am just dropping you a quick note to let you know that after two years I am still thrilled with my coat. It is so warm and snugly; the style (Anita) is so unique it often draws admiring comments; and the soft and supple nappa leather has retained its 'new' look even after two years of continuous winter wear.
Thank you to your store staff who quite quickly ascertained I liked something slightly different and guided me towards this fantastic purchase.
Kind regards

J.C. St Albans, UK      February 2012

To all staff at Higgs Leathers,
I said in my last testimonial that I would be back for more! I have just received my chocolate brown Nicole leather coat, and it is gorgeous! Beautiful, supple leather and suede, generously cut, with a smart toscana lamb collar to give it a touch of glamour. I am absolutely delighted with it, but I have come to expect only the best from Higgs. Thank you one and all!
Yours sincerely and with best regards from
