The work you did for me on my leather pants and jacket is absolutely top notch. You know I'll be giving you the business from now on. I hope to be able to come in around June or July so that you can begin work on my overcoat. I just know it'll be beautiful. Can't wait! Not only is your skill first rate, but your ability to put people at ease, is another plus. As a customer this is important to me. Thank you .

 Hello all at Coats by Mary Ellen,

At the One of a Kind show before Christmas 2015, I saw your
 booth as the hanging coats caught my eye. As my wife
 hates shopping, I buy all of her clothes. Given her petite
 frame and body shape, it’s very hard to find clothing especially
 coats that will fit properly. I can’t believe how many stores do not
 carry petite clothing! Well I remembered loving your coats on
 display and their reasonable prices for quality custom coats.

Last week I surprised my wife and took her to your store and she looked good in the few coats we tried. It was easy to find coats to suit her size in your store. We were really drawn to one although it was hard to buy just one! You are doing some minor alterations for us to make it fit just a little better. Thank you for the wonderful sales experience. The lady was so nice, patient and knowledgeable. We can’t wait to pick up the coat and we have already spread the word that you are the place to buy coats, for men AND women.

See you soon and thanks again as I have been searching to buy her a flattering coat in her size for the past 3 winters. You will be my only stop next time.

Hello John & Lisa,


"Genuinely a pleasure to do business with Coats by Mary Ellen and their team.  The service is excellent and the quality spectacular.  The attention to detail and desire to satisfy distinguishes this custom clothier from the rest.  John worked miracles restoring my son's much-loved jacket and he also meticulously custom tailored a winter coat for me. You will never be disappointed!!"


Best regards,

What a great job! I had a beautiful expensive leather jacket that did not fit properly. It hung in my closet for years. On a recent trip to Toronto I found Coats By Mary Ellen on line. John, measures and re measured and agreed to make the necessary modifications. the results; It fits like a glove!

I always see the sign out on the boulevard, but don't usually have the time to stop in. Last week I made a point of dropping in and I am glad that I did.  They have some beautiful styles at a very good price.  The quality of their coats is unsurpassed.

Thanks again for all your patience and hard work!

You were a pleasure to deal with.

Dear Everyone at Mary Ellen:

My gorgeous swing coat in black boiled wool just arrived and it's fantastic!  This is the most comfortable winter coat I've ever had, soft and light but warm and cozy.  Heading off to the Lingerie Market in New York later this month and so happy to be traveling with this timeless classic.

It will be my lifetime favourite

Thank you
