I usually order through a different uniform company for our fall uniforms, but this season, Algy has what we need.

I am just wondering how peoples experiences have been with Algy? Are they timely with their shipping dates? Do their uniforms run small? Big? Any other advice or experiences that you may have had?

Thanks for any help!

Happy summer everyone! :lol:

Hi Jen,

We have used Algy a few times at Granite Bay. They usually take 8 weeks to ship for custom designs. The quality is good and we haven't had any problems in the past. They require half of the total order before they start production. The uniforms run pretty true to size. I have found that most companies run a little short in the girth though and add an inch for extra comfort. Hope this helps.

I've ordered from Algy several times. Never had a problem. Uniforms usually come in a bit ahead of scheduled delivery date. At least that's my experience.

Sizing is generally very consistent, just use the measurement chart they provide. I've had to go up a size on some of my girls due to height and girth measurements.

I'm not very impressed with their gentlemen's selections, although they seem to be trying harder as of late.

Hope this helps. Good luck to you.

I have used Algy before and I can say that the fit is great, but the shipping is somewhat absurd. Half our season was over before we got them.
