I have no hesitation in recommending JS Tailoring.

Dave Pepper

Director at Gladwin Electrical, Lincoln

I have have been using Jim for my suits for a few years now. From fancy statement and occasion pieces to sharp work suits, Jim always delivers. He is very knowledgeable with his advice and very tolerant of my incredible fussiness. I’ll be back for more.

Dr A Hart

I found J S Tailoring whilst looking for a suit for my wedding, with his friendly, professional service Jim made the whole experience most enjoyable whilst his guidance on the finer details and finishing touches was invaluable to produce a stunning suit fit for the occasion and one that will last for years.
Since discovering the joy of tailor made clothing, I have since used Jim for a selection of fine shirts and an overcoat, all of which have attracted attention when worn, and I will certainly be going back for more.
For stunning quality, impeccable service plus good value I would recommend J S Tailoring to anyone.

David Tomlinson

Director Holton Grange

I’ve known Jim for over 10 years but only recently used his services for two suits. I must say Jims professional approach is impeccable and a shear pleasure to do business with. He was punctual for the appointments and made the whole process a pleasure. Jim brought the suits and when I tried them on lst thought wow ! But Jim being the perfectionist he is wasn’t happy with the jackets and wanted them altering slightly. On the second fitting they were superb. Jims attention to detail is unparalleled and such a great guy to do business with, something that’s rare these days. If your in the market for a bespoke suit go to Jim you won’t be disappointed .

Nick Brown

Retired Retail Store Manager

Just had my first suit tailored by J S Tailoring. Impeccable, friendly, home service from Jim. My special needs as a wheelchair user catered for without any trouble or concerns. He really knows his suits. I’ve worn suits for many years before, even major labels, but this suit I’ve had sized, made and delivered is incredible, the lightest suit, beautiful material, made with real care and attention. Time to start saving for the next one! Thanks Jim.

Mr I Patel

Lincoln

Jim provides a first class service, combining a large range of cloth to choose from, with advice on linings, embellishments and overall style. The end result is a razor sharp suit to beat any London tailor charging twice the price. Highly recommended.

Iain Heron

Senior Consultant at Glue Reply, London

I have no hesitation in recommending JS Tailoring.
Having suits made with varying degrees of success by other tailors I was a little apprehensive about the finished article.
Being well over 6′ and 20 odd stone I can’t get suits off the peg and previous tailors attempts were disappointing and took ages to arrive.
I need not have worried.
The suit I received from Jim fitted perfectly and the detail and level of service provided by Jim is excellent. On shirts he even asked what arm I wear my watch to make the cuff slightly bigger on that side!.
The quality of the clothing I received surpassed my expectations and the price was definitely reasonable considering the quality of materials used, workmanship and fit.
Great value for money in my opinion.
I will be using Jim for all my tailoring needs and can’t think of a better experience for anyone looking to get a lovely suit made!

Steve Coogan

Director GCS Construction Services Ltd, Northampton

To describe the service and quality of Jim’s work as ‘Exceptional’ would be an under statement. The commitment to such excellence and dedication can only be reflected in the superb tailoring that I have experienced with Jim over the last 3 years and hope to continue for many years.

B Bernes

Retired Royal Marine Commando

Even if I hadn’t known Jim through our footballing playing days, it would have been easy to have acquired a tailored suit from Jim as he has a very good persona about him and ultimately knows how to create the ideal suit. I am 6’ 6” and don’t have the benefit of being able to pick a suit up off the rail, so it’s important that I get longevity and good quality from the clothes I wear and that’s where Jim comes into his element with his expertise and friendly/personal approach. I would recommend anyone that needs some tailored clothes to speak to Jim in the first instance as you will not be disappointed.

Paul Banks

Active8 Managed Technologies Ltd

I was told all about Jim from a lady at a networking event after explaining I was looking to purchase a tweed jacket. As a member of a local shoot, it was imperative that any jacket had to look the part but be hard wearing. I expected a bespoke jacket to be far more expensive than off the peg – not so. Jim’s prices are comparable to any of the country suppliers, but I have a jacket that not only looks good but is totally individual and the envy of all the members of the shoot. From a woman’s point of view, Jim made me feel totally at ease throughout the process, no detail was too much for him. An amazing gentleman and tailor.

Dawne Pearson Fairhurst

Hurstons Accountants and Business Advisors, Doncaster

I have had the pleasure of knowing Jim for over 12 years and was delighted when he started JS Tailoring. I have bought many suits from Jim over the years. Jim’s service is second to none, providing a personal service to your work or home, hand delivered by the man himself and at a competitive price. Jim has also helped me with our corporate clothing requirements. Jim has sorted suits for members of staff, shirts, ties and T Shirts for events including embroidery requirements. Jim will not let you down and will provide you with a competitively priced, personal service you will fail to get anywhere else.

Darren Hill

Dealer Principal at Listers Range Rover Lincoln

Jim has been making my smart clothes for the last 10 years. He puts up with a lot but always delivers and often rightly advises me away from the less than classical look. I have recommended him to several friends… and anyone who can make Ben Kay look half decent must be bloody good!

Austin Healey

Former Leicester Tigers & England Rugby Player

I have used Jim (JS Tailoring) to equip me with made to measure suits and shirts for the last 5 years. The personal service he provides is outstanding and the quality of clothing is excellent. I also now buy shoes and other dress accessories from him because of the fantastic personal service he provides, fitting his visits around my very busy business schedule. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Mr. D J Hampson OBE

CEO of Tollbar Academy, Cleethorpes Academy & Reynolds Academy

One assumes the term ‘bespoke’ to be expensive, but for me, using Jim’s services saves me time and money by not having to travel to London – from where I live that is a considerable saving.

Paul Mager

Director at Mager Homes Ltd

Jim’s been suiting me for over 10 years now. He has a vast range of cloth and style options and his made suits and shirts are truly awesome!! Recommending Jim to my associates comes naturally as I know that Jim will provide the very highest level of service.

Geordan Murphy

Former Captain of Leicester Tigers and Ireland Rugby Player

I have used JS tailoring for the last few years for a number of suits. Jim’s service is personal and the quality of the suits is excellent. I’d highly recommend JS Tailoring to others.

Andy Williams

Managing Director at Plumbase UK

Just a brief note to thank you for your superb service and for a quite excellent set of suits and tailored sports jackets. I have been having suits made for nearly 30 years, and I can only say that you have delivered the best results in all my years of buying bespoke clothing – thank you! Added to which, you encouraged me to be more daring than usual, and the results are great – my wife no longer recognises me!

Nick Ringrose

Director at Consultancy Atkins London

I have had the pleasure of ordering some excellent suits from Jim Smith who provides a truly first class level of service and customer care, and I would have no hesitation in recommending his tailoring skills.

Tean Butcher

Partner at Wilkin Chapman LLP

I was introduced to Jim through a friend, and have been delighted with all the suits I have ordered. I have always struggled to find off the peg suits to fit, so having Jim arrive with a suit (or three!) that just fits instantly is a delight. I’ve had business suits, dinner jackets and tweeds and they have all been perfect. I can highly recommend his tailoring skills.

Dr Martin Smith BSc. DOptom DipTp (IP) MCOptom

Optometrist Independent Prescriber, Lincoln

I have used Jim’s services a number of times now – 3 piece suit, shirts and alterations to some ready made garments. Every time he has been professional, fun and knowledgable with an enormous range of fabrics and designs to choose from. He has always given me good advice and delivered exactly what he promised. I will be a regular customer for years to come.

Richard Dewey

Director, Battle Hayward & Bower Ltd, Lincoln

I was introduced to Jim via a business networking event and delighted I was. Jim has supplied me with various shirts, suits, trousers and jackets, all of which start with some expert guidance from Jim to select the cloth and design followed by excellent service and a quality end product. I have no hesitation in recommending Jim whether it be for work shirts, a work suit or something for a special occasion. The only downside is my wife has now realised he also supplies Ladies wear and has recently ordered a new tweed jacket!

Damon Brain

Director Duncan & Toplis

For many years I considered myself abnormal… Long arms, big shoulders, a thin waist and short legs (basically a modern day Gorilla). Shopping for a suit was similar to putting a square peg in a round hole and as you can imagine the end result was a disaster – thank god for my amazing looks and charming personality. Luckily I met Jim – Jim took me under his wing, showed me the error of my ways and guided me to greatness. No longer shall I pick up a suit up off the shelf and think “that’ll do Kong, that’ll do..” I suppose deep down I wanted much more from a suit than it just to fit, but also a quality that can promote me and my business and allow me to feel confident when meeting clients. He hasn’t admitted it yet but I’m certain Jim made the suits for the Anchorman film “suits so fine they make Sinatra look like a hobo!” I think that’s the best way to describe his suits. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jim and can’t wait to get another one to match my new dancing shoes.

Sam Scoffield

Group Managing Director, BESA Group Ltd

Having done some research, I made the decision to contact Jim at JS Tailoring to make 2 suits; 1 business and 1 a bit more funky.
From the beginning to end, the process was quick, fun and above all, very professional. If you are looking for great service, a huge selection of fabrics (all from the UK) and a perfect end result, then do not hesitate to give Jim a call, you won’t regret it!

PS – the shoes are without doubt THE best I have ever had.

Galvin Broughton

Commercial Director Astec Int (Nano Tech) Ltd

I have just used Jim for a tailored 3 piece suit together with shirt and shoes for my wedding. First class service throughout from measurement to fitting. Will certainly use again.

Mark Roberts

Director Clarksons, London

I have used Jim over the past three years for various clothing items from bespoke designer shirts to a bespoke tuxedo. The tuxedo is absolutely stunning and fitted perfectly, with all the embellishment just as I required.
Shirts are always first class, stylish and very different.
Jim has always provided an excellent end product which shows the time he has invested in the attention to detail, and the quality of the materials used is very good.
Jim is always prompt with appointments and dealt with myself in an extremely professional way. The choice and range of products and designs is excellent. Having all this brought to the door is the ultimate in time management for busy professionals. I can highly recommend JS Tailoring as a vey professional business and Jim as an excellent tailor.

John Richmond

Director SELMEC Lincoln

I have recently come into contact with Jim Smith and his tailoring firm after considering many alternatives over the internet. All of which were extortionate in terms of price and require a number of fittings that need you to travel to a retail outlet which may not always be convenient. Jim provides an efficient, professional and personal service at your office or home and gives sound advice on style, cloth and accessories.

I have just received my first suit from Jim that required no adjustments to the garment and the same goes for the shirt he supplied, which is made of superb material and cut to perfection for a rather short dumpy person like myself.

An excellent service Jim and hopefully I will be ordering more products from you in the very near future.

Ray White

Independent Consulting Mining/Mechanical Engineer, Lincoln

Jim has provided me with a stunning bespoke suit that is unique, superb quality and fits like a glove! Fantastic choice of cloth and personal touch makes it more a pleasure than a chore; just arranged fitting for a second 3 piece and no doubt will call on Jim again in the future

Dave Waldron

Area Sales Manager Tesco

This guy knows his stuff. If he can make me look good he must do. Great service, excellent quality and a very long tape measure

Martin Bayfield

BBC Crimewatch & BT Sports Rugby Presenter

I’ve been using Jim, JS Tailoring, for a number of years & I am pleased to say that I have been more than delighted with both the service & quality of suits and shirts provided.

Steve Gelder MBE

Managing Director at Gelder Group

JS Tailoring has enabled me to wear a suit and finally feel comfortable! When you are in a wheelchair, it is very difficult to find a suit off the peg that fits and looks stylish. I have had both suits and coats made by Jim for a number of years and he always seems to get it right. Jim’s attention to detail and choice of cloth are second to none.

Matt Hampson

Director Matt Hampson Foundation, Leicester

I have been using Jim’s services for over 12 years now and can honestly say I wouldn’t look anywhere else for my tailoring. Of course he ensures a perfect and stylish fit but it’s more than that. I like to buy off someone I trust and Jim learns your tastes and advises with options from an extensive range that, without his help, could become daunting. Most of all he is a good bloke which is why he is no longer my tailor but a friend.

Ben Kay MBE

Former Leicester Tigers & England Rugby Player

Jim is very friendly and helpful in choosing the right cloth and style, meticulous in his measurements and reliable with his delivery dates. I have had two suits from him this year and I am delighted with them both.

Richard Hare

Managing Partner at Chattertons McKinnells Solicitors

Jim is very personable; his dress sense is very different from mine!! However, I’ve been more than delighted with the suits Jim’s made for me over the years and cannot recommend his tailoring skills highly enough.

Martin Corry MBE

Former Leicester Tigers and England Rugby Captain

I used to buy shirts & suits from Savile Row thinking I was getting the best. Then I found out about Jim. His professional, friendly manner and punctuality are second to none.
His ability, exciting ideas, quality and prices have really impressed me. I would truly recommend Jim to anyone who loves quality tasteful clothing, and an exceptional service.

Terry Watkinson

Retired Manager at Mars Group Germany

Yet again, I’ve just had someone admire my bespoke shirt and ask where I got it. This happens on a regular basis. And yet again, I’ve just recommended JS Tailoring as my tailor. I said of Jim “he’s good, very good”. That’s one of the highest compliments I can make of Jim; one of the things I like about him. I don’t need a tailor who makes a song and dance about what he does; I just need someone who is really good. Jim goes about his business with complete professionalism; he knows his stuff; the cloths are exceptional; Jim’s dress sense ideas are sometimes wonderfully outrageous but they work; the prices are better than you might fear for made to measure; and Jim simply delivers fantastic bespoke tailoring time after time. I have used JS Tailoring for my bespoke suits, shirts and ties for 6 years now. I once made the mistake of trying elsewhere, but came running back to Jim asking forgiveness. Would I recommend JS Tailoring? Yes, Jim’s good. Very good.

Scott Ballantine

Global Commercial Director at Regus Group

As a businessman involved in Engineering, Healthcare & Industrial properties, quality, reliability & excellence are paramount. Since I’ve known Jim, he’s demonstrated all those qualities in profusion!! He makes suits, shirts, jackets & trousers for me that fit perfectly, that have style & make me feel good.

He’s punctual & if he says something is going to happen……it happens. He’s very price competitive & the luxury of being able to choose my clothes in the comfort of my office or home makes my life so much easier.

He’s the consummate professional, very personable, a pleasure to work with & I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

John Jenkinson

Director at Hatzfeld Care Ltd

I have utilised your services for many years now, and as always, I was totally satisfied with your friendly, efficient and professional service. The suit was exactly what I wanted – well fitted and very good quality at a reasonable price and I would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
