Loyal Testimonials

“Wanted to treat myself to a new belt and found this gem hidden away. From beginning to end the guy in the store was helpful, knowledgeable and informative-clearly knew his trade inside out. It’s a shame it’s a little out the way so more people can’t find it-I hope people go here”

Andrew Parkes


“Really amazing shop. Very bespoke experience. Bought a belt and they finished it right there. The guys are a pleasure to talk to and work with. I even bought one of their aprons! Quality blows away the big-name brands and is a fraction of the price. Will definitely look to buy from them again. Great work guys. Truly. Thank you for keeping it real.”

Jeff Kanter


I will echo what others have said… if you want something special, something one of a kind that is personally made by true artisans, this is the place to look. I came across Simon and the Mackenzie brand several years ago by accident on a trip with my sister to Edinburgh and we found our way to what was then a private studio, unknowingly, and closed at the time. Simon met us there the next day and that was the start of my love affair with his amazing work. We bought several finished bags and I ordered a custom bag (a beautiful wine colour rucksack that he changed into a shoulder bag) that arrived several weeks later when I was back in the states. Since then, Simon has opened a shop on St. Mary’s St. and hired other artisans, so glad to see the shop grow. My husband purchased a Gladstonette last fall as an anniversary gift to me when he visited Edinburgh and we just returned from Edinburgh where I ordered a Town Bag that will be coming in the months ahead. You can buy ready-made pieces at the shop or can order custom pieces in the colours and linings available and they are happy to show you options if given some direction in colour. These are not cheap, mass-produced items — you are paying for unique, quality pieces that will last for generations and priced accordingly. As you can tell, I’m a big fan and would highly recommend Mackenzie if you want to treat yourself to something special that you won’t see coming-and-going. Thank you, Mackenzie team!”
