A small selection of comments received from our customers..
"I first visited Harris in 2009 for a holiday and being a big fan of Harris Tweed had the intension of having a suit made to measure. The shop at Grosebay was top of my list to visit, having seen their literature in the hotel and whilst travelling to the Hebrides. Being able to visit Donald John MacKay at Luskentyre to select the cloth was a fantastic experience and contributed to what was a very special holiday. Donald Johnís craftsmanship is what makes the tailoring at Grosebay unique and itís great to wear something made from a Tweed woven on a Hattersley loom in the traditional manner with all the heritage that represents. I still find it incredible when hearing reports in the media that itís difficult to find good tailoring in Harris Tweed on Harris and Lewis. The service provided by Mairi and Katherine was fantastic - in a couple of hours I managed to visit the shop for measurements, chose my cloth at Luskentyre and order a three piece suit, which was delivered as promised in six weeks. I still get many appreciative comments on wearing it and Iím am now thinking of having another made this year, perhaps commissioning some weaving as well Ė I guess my Tweed addiction showís no sign of abating! Thanks again to Mairi and Katherine and the team at Grosebay."
"I had a beautiful jacket made by The Harris Tweed Company Grosebay and when I went into a quality gents outfitters here in Italy recently to buy a pair of trousers and the owner of the business came to me and said 'Buon Giorno!.....my!....what a wonderful Harris Tweed jacket you have, may I have a look at it?' .. Thank you and see you again."

"Thank you again for being so prompt in sending both jackets. My husband is delighted with his, as I am with mine. The quality of the fabric is wonderful and the cut perfect. I am amazed that after only one fitting you were able to achieve this!!! We will most certainly come back for more."
