I ordered a medium crew neck smock and immediately had doubts about sizing as buying off the peg can be a bit hit or miss for me. I called for advice and my call was returned the next morning. The lady I spoke to could not have been for friendly or understanding and the advice she gave me was spot on. The size was changed and the smock arrived very quickly. Great service, great smock. I will definitely buy another. Thank you.

Kind regards


Thank you Wallace for your great review. It was me who spoke to you, it is always best to phone as sizing can be an issue with anover garment like a smock. We are glad to help and it cuts down the returns.

Great service & quality

Received my Breton cap and scarves in the post yesterday. Very quick service in the current situation. The cap fits perfectly and is exactly what I wanted. The scarves are a good size and quality as well. So pleased I just ordered a Laced smock to go with them !

Thanks very much, stay well, Nigel

Thanks for posting a review Nigel. Glad you liked the item and they fitted well.

Smock to USA

Actress Mary Hyndman as “Penny Sycamore” in the American classic “You Can’t Take it With You” at Theatre Coppell in Coppell, TX, USA. Costumer Vanda Edwards-Jones stated “I needed Mary to look like the stereotypical “French Artist” and couldn’t find a proper smock anywhere until I came upon THE SMOCK SHOP, ST. IVES. The smock shown plays very well onstage. I couldn’t be happier.” Thank you, Zoe!”

Throw away fashion

I’ve got 9 of these
When I buy a jumper etc
I want 10 years hard labor out of it
You won’t be disappointed
The more you wear these the better and more comfortable they get
Hand made top quality .
Highly recommended

Hi John Thank you very much for your review, you will see I had to take a little bit out as that was done just for you.

Great fabric but...

As would be expected for a Bull Denim cloth the fabric is heavy weight and hard wearing but I was disappointed with the colour, a very pale "breton red" but more importantly the opening for the head is snug to say the least, even after unpicking the seam at the back of the collar - smocks from a variety of other sources have not been of the same quality of material but they have all had a significantly larger neck size. Additional on this smock, extra large, the length of the sleeves is generous to say the least.Sadly would not buy again.

Hi Keith
I am glad you liked the weight and quality of the Bull Denim smock it is indeed a lovely fabric.
The shade of Breton Red is a really nice one and is displayed on the internet to in actually smock form for you.
It is a shame you have not contacted me direct re the neck size. I would have gladly have had you return it , at our expense , and made sure a larger necked one was sent or even made up for at which time we could also have taken a few inches off the sleeves .
The smocks are made individually by local machinist and some times a miss of the marking at the neck gap might happen . The standard length of gap is 12" across so 24" in total. If it is made too big then it sits out too much.
I hope this helps with your problem and again am sad you would post a bad review before even coming back to us.
I will post this on line so that any other people can appreciate that we are a small company and do like to look after our customers.

Want to get one or three, they look very much like what I want - but I would just like to know, where is the cotton itself, the fabric, made?

Hi Susan.
We make the garments ourselves in Cornwall but the fabric is not made in the UK any more although we buy from an English wholesaler it is made abroad .
Different fabric from different places .

I have recently purchased 2 children’s smocks from you and I am delighted with the quality of your products.

Thank you for sending them so quickly,they are perfect for my great-nieces who come to do arty stuff with me.

I have had my smock since I was 18...maybe it’s time I invested in a new one!

Thank you for your attention with my order,

Great smock!

Bought a smock last year for gardening & tree work. Needed something tough that wouldn't get snagged easily or torn up on thorns, as well as keeping out the weather.
Great smock, excellent quality material and stitching, and no-fuss service. Perfect for what I need; I expect to get plenty of use out of it.

Thanks Brian glad it's doing it's job. They do last for years . Zoe
