The latest wool Inverness Cape arrived this morning. To say the least, I was delighted with it! Thank you for you the diligent efforts you and your employees expended to produce such a well-tailored garment. Needless to say I will treasure it (along with the other three capes that you made me this year) for the rest of my life. Coincidentally, today was my 69th birthday and the cape made a wonderful present (even if I did give it to myself!!!).

I hope that someday in the future you might visit Mississippi during one of your trips to the U.S. If so, please contact me so that we can arrange to meet if your schedule permits.

Dear Mr. Mistofsky,

When I was very young, my mother introduced me to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson by renting some old black and white films on VHS tapes starring the legendary actors, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Shortly after, I became obsessed with the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and read all of his novels and short stories.

Although many fictional detectives tend to wear some form of recognizable garb, the finery of Mr. Sherlock Holmes has never had an equal.

I have desired a proper Inverness tweed cape all of my life. For one reason or another, I had never gotten around to taking that leap...until now. After purchasing my new cape and deerstalker from you, I truly understand the meaning of the saying, "Good things come to those who wait."

I want to thank you for your patience and all of your communication with me during this process. The cape and deerstalker arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. The quality of your workmanship exceeded my expectations in every possible way. It's obvious that you pay attention to every detail and take great pride in your work. The fit is absolutely perfect.

I must be honest, I was fairly ignorant about "Harris Tweed" until I did some research. There were some amazing documentaries on online illustrating the entire process of making this amazing fabric. As an American who has always purchased "off the rack" clothing, the mere fact that your tweeds are all hand woven on treadle looms inside each weaver's home is absolutely amazing!

As I work in the film industry, I have been around many "costumes" over the years. Film garments look good on camera, but that's about as far as it goes. Calling your workmanship a mere "costume" would be an utter insult! What you have created for me is a work of art! It's the real thing!

I'm sure that wearing one of your Inverness capes is a unique experience for everyone who purchases one. For me, not only do I feel as if I have been transported to the Victorian era, my mind also floods with fond memories of watching Sherlock Holmes films with my mother, who is no longer with us.

For anyone reading this letter, I highly recommend Mister Antony. If you have been procrastinating about the purchase of an Inverness cape or's time to do it! Also, if you're in America, the US Dollar to British Pound conversion is the best it has been in years. Why wait and pay more later? You will not be disappointed!

Warm Regards,

Dear Mr. Mistofsky,

The Inverness cape arrived today in perfect shape; I’m overwhelmed by the great quality and the overall "look&feel"! Now that’s what I call "decent raiment"!!

I’m really looking forward to try it; unfortunately I’m currently ill with the flu – but as soon as I’m out again, I’ll get some pictures for you as well…!

Many thanks again for the great work and
All the best to you and your family from Old Vienna,

Dear Mr. Antony staff,

I recently received the Inverness coat and I would let you know that I am very impressed by its outstanding quality! It fits perfectly, gives you warm on harsh weather and is also a very comfortable garment. Well done, Mister Antony Capes!

I wish you all a merry Christmass, a happy and peaceful New Year and all the best for the future.

With my warmest regards,

Christoph Schmidlin

The Harris Tweed cape arrived today. It's precisely what I wanted and beautifully made. I couldn't be more satisfied. It has truly been a pleasure dealing with you.

In today's world, where rarely is the statement "what you see is what you get" completely accurate, you are a wonderful exception. You lived up to every claim made on your website.

The material, the measurements and the finishing turned out to be absolutely first class. In fact, I wore the cape this morning and the first person I saw said, "I want to get one right away!" and I've already passed on your website address.

Many, many thanks!!

All the best,

I have now received the two capes you made for me. I'm delighted; they're beautifully made and an excellent fit. I've no doubt that when worn amongst the stylish but very practical and quality conscious Japanese they'll attract interest and praise. Do you have many clients in Japan? I shall be pleased to recommend your services.

I am especially grateful to you for so quickly and pleasantly resolving the misunderstanding over the color of the tweed. An important indication of the quality of the service an organization provides is how efficacious and understanding it is in resolving such matters.

Best regards,

I received the Harris Tweed Inverness Cape a couple of weeks ago. It arrived in fine shape.

I must say that it is a MARVELOUS garment! The fabric is dense and warm, the workmanship excellent, the size and fit perfect, the color rich and formal. The design is extremely rare for the U.S., and thus I enjoy great sartorial cachet when I wear it out! It is the perfect winter complement to my kilt kit and Balmoral.

Thank you very much. It is a complete pleasure to have done business with you. Rest assured that I will recommend you to any and all who inquire seriously about the garment, and I wish you all the best of success in the future.

With warmest regards,

The Inverness Capes arrived today in flawless condition and were welcomed beyond belief…My friend of 27 years was speechless and proclaimed that it was the greatest gift he has ever received…The New York Giant players saw him sporting the cape and straight away asked “Where can we get one?” I do believe that we will be talking about some other orders...

Thank you again for your craftsmanship, your diligence, and your professional attention to all details of my purchase. Good health and safe travels to you and an early joyous holiday season!!!!!!!!!

My Inverness cape arrived yesterday, and it is absolutely beautiful. I love my choice of herringbone tweed, and I thank you again for sending fabric samples so I could make an informed choice. The workmanship on the cape is superb, and I can tell it will likely be the last one I will ever purchase. I want to commend you on your professionalism as well. From the beginning of our encounter when you called me to discuss fabrics and availability, through the process by keeping me notified of progress, until the end when you shipped the garment, you have consistently provided an excellent level of service.

You have my heartfelt thanks,

The Inverness Cape arrived safely on Christmas Day – and what a magnificent Christmas present it was (albeit one to myself)!

The hand-woven tweed is truly beautiful in its own right, the fit is absolutely perfect and the craftsmanship and tailoring both outstanding.

I first wore the cape within an hour of opening the parcel and it immediately drew very favourable attention from my Japanese neighbours, peers and even complete strangers.

On a more personal note, I would like to thank you, once again, for the exemplary and totally unparalleled customer service which you provided from my first enquiry to the final delivery.

To anyone seeking a reminder of a more civilised and halcyon age, I would unhesitatingly and wholeheartedly recommend your company – not only for the unsurpassed quality of its sartorial products but for the uncompromising service which also hearkens back to an era now sadly past.

Yours sincerely,

I have today received the Inverness Cape, and it fits perfectly and looks fantastic. I can't wait for the colder weather so I can start wearing it. It will, I'm sure, turn quite a few heads.
