Working with Imogen is a real joy, she is very quick to understand my requests and is also good at suggesting new ideas. Great fun from start to finish.
Having just worn my suit for the first time, I am thrilled with the end result. The attention to detail has been apparent from start to finish. Adding distance to the mix (given that I live and work in Amsterdam) didn’t seem to phase Imogen, who was happy to organise fittings around my hectic schedule. I would strongly recommend anyone looking for a bespoke suit to contact Kipper and Chalk, who manage to give any work suit a special touch. Five stars!
Thank you so much for making my lovely coat. Your creativity and enthusiasm made the whole process such fun. I really felt smart on my birthday and had lots of compliments.
Having Imogen make a wedding jacket for me was a dream come true. I can't tell you how many compliments I got for it, more than for the actual dress. I wanted something to put on in the evening and jazz up my dress but also something I could wear again - and I certainly have, hundreds of times. Working with Imogen was so easy and stress free. We went together to choose the material and then she managed to recreate my vision perfectly.
I wish I had just gone straight to Imogen rather than waste time trawling online and various shops. Imogen came to meet me at a convenient spot and we discussed materials, styles, buttons and more until a vague idea of what I wanted was formed. Over the course of the following few weeks with Imogen coming to me several times - at times to suit my schedule - for fittings and tinkering it took shape. The process was a lot of fun, liberating as I could choose whatever I wanted rather than prescribe to a shops limited selection, and hugely exciting. Not to mentioned easy and reasonably priced. When I buttoned up the waistcoat on my wedding day I was proud to put it on. Somehow being involved in the process and knowing the care taken to create exactly what I wanted had turned a garment into something far more significant.
I absolutely loved my experience from start to finish. The design and fitting process was so much fun and I couldn’t have been happier with the finished product. I thought I wouldn’t know where to start with the design but Imogen brought out my taste and my creativity, and I didn’t even know it was there! Unlike my other high street clothes, I genuinely can’t wait to put my jacket on, knowing that it’s the only one in the world, knowing that it fits me perfectly, and that it was what exactly what I wanted. Everyone needs one and I really mean that. Imogen is a truly talented tailor.
I love that my jacket is utterly unique, ethical and beautifully handcrafted. As with all of the clothes that Imogen designs and makes, the exquisite details add an understated elegance which makes the jacket stand out in a crowd. Every time I wear it I am showered with compliments!
I really enjoy the personal touch of knowing the story behind the different materials – one carefully chosen in Soho, another discovered by chance at a stall in India – it adds real personality and romance to a simple item of clothing. What's more, it folds into nothing and never has a crease to be seen – this jacket is truly magical.
