I don't normally use web sites for buying clothes as I am very particular. However, I found Nigel's website on my ipad while I was on the train to London to find an outfit for my daughter's wedding. I had been looking for ages and had found nothing locally but I was lucky to find a dress and coat.
There was no matching hat but the lady said Nigel would make one for me and it would take about a month. I sent Nigel an email with my instructions and he got in touch immediately.
However, when I got home I discovered a beautiful hat in a box in my wardrobe.
It's about 15 years old and I have worn it to several weddings. It still looks perfect. I couldn't believe it was by Nigel Rayment as I had bought it in Glasgow. I sent him a picture and he remembered it
He is absolutely delightful and told me 500 shops worldwide stock his hats. I was so surprised as he was so modest and unassuming.
I have told everyone I know about Nigel and my friend, the groom's mother,was also delighted to find an outfit in his shop..
When my new hat arrived it was absolutely perfect and exactly what I had asked for. Thank you so much. You are a star, Nigel.
