    The cape is the most beautiful piece I own. I have worn it nearly every day since it’s arrival.

    Being quite petite I was unsure whether the style would suit me but thanks to your size suggestion, it’s perfect. I can see another one in another colour being purchased in the future. Thank you very much

    I adore my cape, I feel so wonderful in it every time I wear it.

    Such a classic item that suits town and country alike. This was taken as we celebrated our wedding anniversary with friends. What a happy day it was.

    Sands and Hall were a delight to deal with from start to finish.

    I have admired the Hepburn Original Cape for a long time and as it was my 40th Birthday I decided to treat myself and I am pleased that I did. The photos of this cape do not do it justice. It arrived impeccably packaged I’m a beautiful ribboned box in a dust cover, the quality of the fabric is amazing. The photo I have included is me trying it on over my housework clothing with unbrushed hair and I feel stunning!! I can’t wait to style it properly. I think it’s going to have lots of outings over the next few years. Thank you Sands and Hall you have made my birthday fabulous!

    My cape arrived on Friday. Thanks! It was actually even more lovely than I thought it would be! Yay.
    Thanks for email re dispatch day. I think it said cape would arrive in 2-3 days via courier. It did. Thanks!

    Ahh btw…my husband liked the cape too! Which is surprising…as he wears boring clothes & has 300 pairs of black socks. Please don’t tell him I told you this…I shall deny it!
    But seriously…my cape arrived. Love it beyond measure. Thanks again Mony- for your help and always patiently answering my questions with professionalism and kindness. Much appreciated! Xx

    My cape is exquisite (as was the packaging), and it joins the company of my Sierra Mix and Navy Grace. 🙂

    Your advice early on to go with the Regular was great, too, I like how it fits compared to the other two in Petite.

    Thank you for such excellent customer service (as always)!! x

    To Mony & Sara, Thank you both so much, I received my cape today, my mother in law signed for it last week and only informed me of its arrival this afternoon!

    It was beyond my expectation, it’s so beautiful I just cannot wait to wear it! My biggest problem is I give practically seven days a week in jodhpurs and boots! I face timed my sister in it and she was very taken with it also, I’ll definitely be purchasing another! Anyways I just wanted to email to say a huge thank you, I’ll be sure to tag you in an Instagram pic when it makes its debut!

    I received my beautiful cape, in its gorgeous packaging. I love it, however when I put it on it just does not suit me at all 🙁

    I have decided I need to return it as it just does not look right. I’m not sure if it is the fit, the style or my body shape but I’m sad as it looks amazing on all the models and those who have posted pictures of them wearing their cape. I have wanted one for over a year now so very sad!

    I wore it today for afternoon tea and got loads of lovely comments about it.

    It’s beautiful & the fit is perfect, so elegant & stylish. As for the service & delivery I could not fault it at all. A very impressive high standard of care and quality so thank you.

    My cape arrived, and I have to say I am so impressed.

    It was beautifully packaged/presented, and even more gorgeous in person. With thanks to your company for an excellent product and the best customer service I have ever experienced.

    I’ve had other capes in the past and know they can feel a bit funny on at first but it’s not that.

    I just don’t feel it’s right for me at all, I am gutted as I’ve been promising myself one for over a year now and when it arrived I just didn’t love it at all.

    I’d say 5 out of 5.

    The cape is gorgeous, well made, light yet warm and makes even jeans and a jumper look stylish. I’ve had loads of positive comments each time I’ve worn it. The whole buying experience was fantastic, easy ordering, super quick responses and helpful advice on which colour to go for. X

    Just received my Hepburn Earth regular size Tweed cape I am delighted with it. I am 5ft 7 ins tall and a size 16/18 and was dubious it would fit but Sara was right it’s perfect and a nice length too. I could even wearca thicker jumper underneath it. The colours are beautiful autumnal shades of green brown and rust co!oyred flecks the mining is gorgeous. What a treat to receive such a beautifully packaged quality item of clothing feels really special
