I wanted to write to say thank-you for all your help in ensuring that my Black Tie event was a success! A most professional and courteous service that I would recommend to anyone.

The customer service was excellent with different people visiting at different times for measurements and with the suits delivered on time and in perfect order. The return process was simple and the whole experience very stress free. We would happily recommend them to others.

It was a very professional experience along with great mix of humour with Graham pointing/directing us in his own certain persuasive way !!....... We would not hesitate in recommending Chimney Formal Menswear to any one we know in the future.

Sharon and Graham were excellent from the moment we arrived at our first consultation up until the day when we handed the suits back. They are very knowledgeable and honest and know exactly what would suit your style and wedding decor. We had a little mishap on the wedding day where one of the suits was run over on the A1 (true story) and they were absolutely fantastic when the best man rang to break the news. They couldn't do enough to help us! Thank you so much for providing us with the suits for our wedding day. They were perfect.

Words cannot portray the excellent and friendly service at Chimney's. I went in with my 2 yr. old grandson to get measured for his Page Boy outfit. Graham was amazing, and we actually had a fun time. No stress and totally relaxing. Thank you so much.
