"Pete, and everyone else at Tom Sawyer. It is not often that I am moved to write to comment on great service but may I commend you on your attention to detail, follow up and general excellence. This is the second time I have ordered a Christmas waistcoat from you. Ordering online is generally a faceless transaction- but from the moment I ordered, I received a phone call from Pete to obtain the missing info on my waist measurement, was advised that I would definitely receive the waistcoat in time for our staff Christmas party, when it would be despatched etc. 48 hrs before our function I realised that I hadn’t ordered to matching bow tie-I emailed Pete in desperation early one morning, received a reply at 10.15 that morning confirming despatch that day ,and the bow tie arrived 24 hours later. Magnificent!! I run a large consumer goods business and have a passion for great service, and yours is second to none. I am also a resident of the south west, living in Somerset and have a holiday home in Cornwall and like to support local businesses wherever possible. I have told so many people ( as a result of compliments regarding the waistcoat) that if they ever want a waistcoat that there is only one place they should go to- Tom Sawyer. May I wish all of you at Tom Sawyer a merry Christmas, and I hope that your business goes from strength to strength.
I am using my experience of ordering from you as an example of truly great customer service with my own team, and I will definitely be ordering again.
Best Regards" D Townsend December 2015

I apologise for the delay in getting back to you, it's been a pretty manic couple of weeks at work for me.
Right, firstly I just wanted to say thank you so much for pushing my order through for the waistcoat and bowtie so that I would get it in time for the event we were going to, the fact you managed to turn it around in time for the event was nothing short of amazing.
Secondly I wanted to thank you for the products, I got compliments all night about how smart I looked and what a nice waistcoat it was, and that was all down to your handiwork. So once again thank you for everything, and rest assured I did, and will continue to recommend you to anyone that asks.

"I picked up my waistcoat order from our local Buckeye, Arizona Post Office this morning - it arrived yesterday (Apr 8) but I was too late to get it at that time. I opened the package with high anticipation and am overjoyed at the quality and fit of your waistcoats. Most excellent in all regards and I am eager to try them all out on various suit combinations in my wardrobe.
Who is to know? Perhaps I will ignite a "fad" for a new generation of impressionable young males willing to explore a more mature manner of dress to impress the fair gender; their peers; potential employers...? Well, one can hope, Yes? Be aware I'm fully satisfied with my purchase in all aspects of our transaction, and will ensure that word spreads accordingly. Thank you for your efforts, quality of merchandise, and excellent communication throughout.

I had only a vague notion of what I needed and was not satisfied with what was available locally.

You should certainly feel proud of such workmanship and I do appreciate the high level of care your team takes with absolutely no physical detailing except through details given through internet.

"We were extremely impressed with the quality and originality that the waistcoat brought to our special day. We first came across the Tom Sawyer website when searching on musical waistcoats on the internet. James is a musician and we wanted to add an element of ourselves into our wedding. We ordered the waistcoat online and my mother brought it over from England to New Zealand. It was beautiful! Well crafted, individual, and everything it was advertised to be and more. We would recommend Tom Sawyer Waistcoats for anyone looking for a beautiful piece of character to add to their character-filled groom or simply looking for something a little different at great value. In fact, the groom liked it soooo much he used it in his next music video!" Abby & James August 2013
"Just to let you know that the waistcoat arrived today and that I am gloriously happy with it.I was more than happy with the swatch you sent but the finished product far exceeds what I was expecting, it fits like a glove.

To close, just to let you know that the wife has cleared me to get the black one as well so I will be giving you a ring." J Greener July 2013

"I just had to email you to thank you so much for your fantastically quick service and excellent product. My husband is about to celebrate his first fathers day and I wanted a special gift. I looked everywhere for a classic, wooden photo frame with an engravable plaque, but all the ones I come across looked cheap and tacky. I was thrilled to find the walnut and oak frames on your site and ordered one with a personalised message on Friday lunchtime. I was shocked and a bit disbelieving to receive an email that same afternoon to say the frame had been dispatched and amazed when it arrived in the post Saturday lunchtime! It is beautiful, just what I was looking for and I'm sure my husband will love it. I will be recommending you to others." M Jones June 2013

" Brian G May 2013
"Thank you, my order arrived to- day. I was very pleasantly surprised at the excellent way in which my waistcoat had been packed and delivered. On opening I was immediately impressed at the very high standard of workmanship and care taken to marry up the pattern on the material. Especially as I had made a mistake with the size ,which you took time to e.mail me to let me know you had changed. Further recently I purchased a waistcoat made in China, which didn't meet with any of the above remarks that I have made here and although it was cheaper, for the relatively small amount extra I am glad to have paid the price.
YOUR PRODUCT FITTED PERFECTLY and I will certainly be in touch again." R Sach May 2013

The quality is fantastic, and he absolutely loves them. He is into shooting and I purchased the gold and silver coloured shotgun cartridge cufflinks, they were perfect.

"What can I say, quality service and quality products, received goods Saturday 5th and wore them today. Thank you very much." C Jennings January 2013
"The waistcoat is truly an item of great quality, and I am exceedingly pleased with it.
As an old farming friend of my Dad's said - when I bought a Maseratti Mistral Convertible in 1968 - 'Aye young John, You'll get a better class of Woman now.'
I was young, incredibly naive, and fortunate enough to be playing with a Dutch Band who had had a number of Continental Chart hits. I fully expect your waistcoat to produce a similar result......without the ongoing costs that buying an overpriced, incredibly unreliable, and almost lethal projectile, that had cost more than a semi in suburbia did at the time, visited upon me.....But - previous comments notwithstanding - It was incredibly good fun to drive, Doormen at Hotels - including The Dorchester - held the doors open, and my father's friend's prediction was 110% accurate. I wore the waistcoat with the kilt and an Argyle Jacket today; Despite the fact that I appear to be rivalling the Incredible Growing Man in avoirdupois, a bloke and his girlfriend came up to me in Cheltenham and said "Now, that's what I call style!" I'm now working on a ploy to separate complimentary blokes from their ladyfriends (Hmm - vice versa methinks).....Without them getting too ratty, of course."
"What !! how can this be so, I only ordered it on Monday, your company is going downhill, place an order, giving you no measurements, except to say same as always, 3 days later it's here, surely this is not acceptable.
Jan, Pete and your staff......Superb service, wonderful products, to anybody out there who are undecided whether ordering on line is for them, then please if it's Tom Sawyer Waistcoats you are about to order from, hesitate not, they are in Tina Turners words "Simply the Best"
Thank you everyone
"Hi Pete, Jan and Kate,
back to home page
My three Beach Wedding Waistcoats arrived and they, as usual, look absolutely splendid. Thank you once again for your tireless work in helping me extend my wardrobe.
My colleagues frequently ask "How many waistcoats do you have?" I have 19, and at least 14 of those are Tom Sawyer waistcoats. Why? There's no one better nor more reliable!
I look forward to my Summer versions of the Panda and the Comby Van waistcoats.
