Came by this afternoon to get a stock of detatched starched wing and plain collars together with studs etc for my Brother only to find to my horror that the shop was closed, no notice and the windows covered by great sheets of paper. I very much hope that this is ...temporary and not the end. There is nowhere else... More

Had my medals mounted here twice now, very friendly and helpful staff. It is easy to find and free parking opposite in the Aldi car park.

Fascinating old shop. Apparently the only surviving military/naval tailor and medallists for hundreds of miles. I have ben in to buy minor accessories like studs and formal bow ties but it is doing a steady stream of work on uniforms and much more. A genuinely unusual and interesting shop.

As if from a lost era. Pity this shop doesn't have a website. I am sure there are so many images and skills that could be shown, not least the uniforms. My neighbour and mate is a naval doctor who uses this place to have his formal uniforms sorted. He suggested I go with him a couple of months ago.... More

My father remember Gieves on Mutley Plain, long since gone. Fenecks are first rate traditional naval and military tailors and medalists who seem to have justifiably survived for a very long time serving commissioned and some non-commissioned officers based locally or regionally who need work on their bespoke uniforms, especially full dress uniforms and evening mess dress, and more specifically...

Living history in a Dockyard and Garrison town. Historic but current dress uniforms in the window of this modest but very long established business. Fascinating. Never come across anywhere like it and I doubt there is anywhere similar unless you go some swanky establishment in the posh west end of London. Sadly no website.

My god father used to bring his uniforms here for alterations as his well fed and ageing stature varied over time. Fascinating place. Friendly informed and skillful staff.

Great to find another almost unique independent still trading successfully in the city especially because it is genuinely unusual curious different interesting and useful. Situated on the northern side half way down Union Street in a position you might feel uncomfortable about when the clubs pubs and late night bars are open but which during daylight hours is safe enough...
