    I am looking for a set of cheap or (reasonable) band jackets to replace a whole set for my band. Also am open to any new ideas for uniform.
    We would be really very grateful to hear from you
    Kind Regards

    have you looked at waistcoats instead of traditional band jackets?

    personally, I hate playing in a heavy (ill fitting) jacket that restricts by movement & a shirt so tight around my neck I can hardly breath.

    We've had prices from Centre Stage Uniforms and I've got to say I was amazed. You could do worse than give Martin a call, if you want his number drop me a PM.

  5. Towcester Studio Band have some blue blazers for sale- not a complete set, but various sizes. Looking for around £30.00 a jacket. Let me know if interested. 07774 932 475

    We have 27 'bum freezer' stage jackets in black with burgundy lapels & cuffs, with gold trim, made by Handleys and in excellent condition. Various sizes, £50 each. PM me if interested. I live quite near Bradford, so could bring them for you to look at if you want.

  7. £15200's worth of jackets?!! Hope nobody ever spilt anything on them!!:eek:

    Can highly recommend MArtin at Centre Stage Uniforms. We've just had some of the 'traditional' braided jackets from him, and the quality, service and turnover time from point of order were fantastic. The price is also incredible and far cheaper than any other supplier you'll find.

    For blazer- style jackets visit Fanfare North. Dave's stuff is high quality, very reasonably priced and his customer service is second to none.

    The band is looking to sell these for around £600 the lot. Yes I agree somebody did give me the wrong figure of £400 each (I am not the Treasurer). We did however pay alot of money for these
    and they are in excellent condition. Nobody was allowed to spill anything on them - we were all measured for them and mine fit me perfectly at the time, not anymore! So go on and grab yourself a bargain - Steph would welcome some room in her little house.

    Try the boys at Kroake (yourlogohere)

    Fantastic service and value for money. Picked up their flyer at Butlins - embroidered blazers £32.50!
    Half the price that I could find anywhere else...

    we looked at those at Butlins as well. Wasn't impressed with the quality of those on display though. Quality may cost a little extra, but will be worth it in the long run.
