the velcro tabs continually detached requiring someone to reaffix them, it was annoying after a while.

Bryan Carter, Oct 16, 2017 - Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT)

Little hard to keep the robes in place without them slipping back all the time.

Paula O'Connor, Oct 16, 2017 - Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT)

Is clinginess above correct or should it be cleanliness ? I thought 80 euro was expensive but reception good was very nice. Would have been nicer if lecturers were present.

Very good service, your employee was professional and assisted in the correct set up

Jeanette Dooley, Sep 17, 2017 - Galway Business School

Regarding your staff, your assistant was very plesant, nice to deal with. However, in regards to the clothing, the gown and sash were a perfect fit in length but kept falling back all day. The cap was a complete misfit to the point that it was difficult to have it sitting right for photos. I was very disappointed on the day. The experience was totally uncomfortable, it really did have a negative impact on my day.


Reply from Armstrong & Oxford: Dear Jeanette. Many thanks for your feedback and our sincere apologies for your negative experience with the gown and hood. The hoods we use are of the standard QQI awarding body specification which historically sit heavier at the back and can pull the gown back with them. Our staff are trained to advise graduates on how to avoid this happening but this must have been overlooked in error on the day. Apologies also that you found your hat did not sit right; the hats sit flat on the head and can be pinned in if not an accurate fit. Kind Regards Susan Waldron, Event & Account Manager

Excellent staff, the wait was not long, fixing the hat for me was great. The robes moved a lot and did not stay in place well. They seemed clean and good quality. I was impressed that the hat was clean and did not have make up on it from another graduate who had worn it.

Paul Sexton, Jun 26, 2017 - Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin

I arrived to collect my robe 20 mins beforehand . I left only to see my class mate wearing a different colour so in a rush I hurried back to get the proper colour ,when I explained the mistake they checked the role again at this stage I checked the box they took my original sash from which if they read correctly the first time !! They would have not given me the wrong sash the first time . So they then gave me another sash which I was to find again was the wrong colour , as you can imagine it's an nervous morning and to be running over and back to get the right couloir sash is stressful . Luckily I told the seating staff in the auditorium who had spare colour sashes on standby . The robe staff lacked familiarity with each sash colour , lacked attention to detail . I suggest having a booklet with photos showing each degree and the robe n sash to be warn so they can consult with it when in doubt . Over all a stressful experience .


Reply from Armstrong & Oxford: Our sincere apologies for your bad experience on the day of your conferring. We completely understand your dissatisfaction at the wrong hood being given to you. It was actually Armstrong & Oxford staff in the Auditorium who gave you the correct hood, as it is one of our precautionary measures to do a final check of graduates right before the ceremony and ensure everyone is dressed correctly. We do understand however this was quite stressful for you after being given the wrong hood twice before then, so again our sincere apologies. Kind Regards Susan Account Manager, Armstrong & Oxford

Justin Martin, Jan 01, 2017

Perfect!

Helena Lewis, Dec 22, 2016

Very easy to order. Very helpful staff with fitting gown however in returning the gown I would prefer more 'contact'. I appreciate the 'event'of graduation is over at the gown return stage, but the customer experience is not, so more relational contact at
