Being reasonable is a great thing; it means that you have good judgement and that you are fair. We think that being reasonable is the number one ingredient in great Customer Service.
Conventional busness practices say Customer Service Departments are a ‘pain in the neck’, that ‘they are the last place anyone would want to work.’ Some companies even think that listing 20 different Customer Service policies on a web page or two sides of A4 is good service. Some even think that an automated touchtone service is considered ‘good service’. Here at Finisterre, that isn’t being reasonable and it sure as hell isn’t good Customer Service!
Being reasonable is having the time to speak to someone before, during or after buying from us. Good Customer Service is always doing everything we can for a customer, no matter what the situation.
One day, a customer called us up and told us that they were trying for a baby and that her husband needed cooler boxer shorts to keep temperatures low and fertility high. This customer felt comfortable enough to share this, to open up to us all in the workshop.
Why? Well maybe because there are no automated messages, maybe it’s because you can speak to any of us, or maybe it’s just because we really do care about our customers. Being able to talk about these things is more than Customer Service, it’s a relationship, a family - and here’s to many more of these relationships!

Washing instructions are printed on a white tag inside our garments. Following these instructions will ensure the long life span of your clothing. In general, washing in cold or warm water with mild powder laundry soap and line drying are the best ways to clean our products.
Our outerwear is originally treated with a Durable Water-Repellent finish (DWR), which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job. Re-proofing increases the water repellency and lifespan of your jacket. When rain ceases to bead on the fabric, it’s a sign that water repellency is fading and cleaning / re-proofing is required. To re-proof we firstly recommend cleaning at 30°C with Nikwax® Techwash. Then re-proof using Nikwax® TX Direct.
Here at Finisterre, we hate waste and would much rather breathe new life into old jackets than add them to landfill. We are fortunate enough to have the skills - Holly Young, a young milliner and one of a dying breed, can make anything from fabric. She repairs, patches and throws years back into the garments she works on and can even add some original patch works to specific garment. So if you want your garment back with a twist - just ask!
If you love your jacket, then send it into us for a spa day. Repairs start from £12.50 inc P&P - Nik Wax Wash and Reproof £12.00 inc P&P. If you like the sound of the above, just ask for the full service! We know you don¹t want to be without your kit for long, so Holly will do her best to get it back to you as fast as possible, but we do normally recommend you allow two weeks for a repair to be completed. If you need it for a particular date, please do let us know in advance.
How to send it into us:
When sending anything to us, if you could be kind enough to give it a quick wash that would be amazing, no one likes dirty laundry and we'll take care of the rest.
If the items have not been cleaned we think that it is unfair and unpleasant for Holly, in which case we will have to call you to give the options of either sending this back to you or to take an additional charge of £12 to wash the garments before the repair is carried out.
Please also include your name and contact details.
