And oh by the way... I got your order promptly on Friday - thanks for the quick mailing!  The shirts fit perfectly and are exceptional in quality. The wool shirt itself is tremendously warm and will serve me well on cold hikes/ camping trips. Your products have been nothing but exceptional in quality and your service is awesome! It’s a sincere pleasure to do business with you! Thanks very much. Nicholas

Hello Gene, Thank you so much for the canoe capote !!!!  It arrived today; I have worn it all day. I have wanted one of these since I watched Jeremiah Johnson as a 12 year old (1972). You have made a dream of 44 years come true. The craftsmanship is awesome. Your seamstress deserves a raise. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Merry Christmas Gene !!!!!

Dear Gene, I purchased a pair of 18th century trousers from you some years ago. I have enjoyed them thoroughly and found them to be well-made and well-designed. Thanks for making good clothes at a reasonable price. But now I need a new pair…………

Deer Sir,  I just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you for your fantastic service.  I feel you went above and beyond to just send out the merchandise on good faith that I would send a check.  It is hard to find a business that is old school where a deal can be made done by accepting a man's word to deal a deal.  In the future I will conduct business in the modern way.  I have also told others in my group about your company.
