Feedback from some of our clients who have ordered products to their specifications:

“We were looking for a totally bespoke look for our business. An image that set us aside from the others. Problem was its easy to get uniform for men and women but not so easy to stand out! Silly Old Sea Dog sourced all materials that we imagined and more. A stunning array of materials that matched the amazing dresses and skirts made by Silly Old Sea Dog ! So not only do we have bespoke amazing dresses and skirts by Alison that are stunning! I now have matching waistcoats. Simply amazing bespoke clothing and a real find !!! Perfect for Cornwall Entertainment as we hire out various products for parties and weddings including casino tables, an ice cream cart, popcorn machine and photo booth – we now have uniforms to match each product we offer ” – Craig and Katie from Cornwall Entertainment

“As a photographer attending a lot of wedding fairs it is always great to stand out form the crowd, although I always hope that my photography style attracts couples to book their wedding with me, I have found that the way I dress at an event is as important as an eye catching stand of my work. I used to attend wedding fairs wearing business suits, now I always wear my Silly Old Sea Dog uniforms – my favourite being a skirt with cameras on as it shows what I do. Since wearing these I have found that I attract far more people to my stand as initially they compliment me on my outfit. This has helped me to look more professional, be memorable and ultimately take more bookings.” – Lisa Parkinson, Kernow Dream Photography

Hair Clips for The Travelling Bluebird

“We would send you photos of us wearing your gorgeous Christmas hairclips in my food van.  My French vintage food van is called The Travelling Bluebird and we wanted something to make us Christmassy at a busy Christmas market so we chose our hair clips from your site. Lots of people asked us where they came from – I should have had a little sign with your website on, lol!”
