Hi, this is all very new to me. The independent school that my girl will be starting at next academic year has directed us to Perry Uniforms to get kitted out. Has anyone any experience of this company before?

My dc used to go to a school that used them and I personally found them to be quite incompetent. Often had to wait six weeks for tracksuit trs, shirts, basic stuff. Branded blazers for my childs school in the size I wanted would always sell out in June/July until October half term. So order stuff early. I used to search elsewhere online (try for sports kit) for identical coloured non branded items which i could find a) cheaper than Perry and b) often had a higher cotton content = better quality in my opinion.

Thank you. I'm mainly concerned about the quality of the fit; however I came across their i-size application which asks for all the individual body measurements so hopefully this will be accurate. Has anyone had experience of using i-size before?

Yes I used it and it seems to work for our boys.

They are also very helpful if you ring them up with measurements as they have a pretty good idea which items tend to be on the big for age side.

Our school has had stock issues with them in the past so do order soon.
(Note to self to do the same).

I have been having a look around their website ...

Looks like it's not just school uniform that they're involved with. These blazers are pretty striking-think they have one in my size??!

It's good to see that they're involved with fund raising events too!

our school uses them and they are very helpful when you phone. I order items for DS2 to find out that DS1 and DD1 had grown out of some of their uniform, one quick phone call and the sizes were all shuffled around letting me pass the clothing I already had down DD1 now has new and poor DS's have hand me downs grin

No issues with quality here but I do buy some items elsewhere, M&S is cheaper for boys white shirts and they appear to wash well in the boarding house without going grey

They are very disorganised and really terrible to get hold of, have been on the phone for nearly 6 x sessions of approx 45 mins each time over a period of 3 days now, no customer care whatsoever!
also every thing i ordered on their special i system came up small.
