Our vast selection of fabrics include an array of wool, cashmere, cotton, linen and mohair. Wool is the most frequently used cloth for business & leisure suits. The superfine Merino fibre, sourced from Australian & New Zealand sheep, makes up most of our range of fabrics. We utilise a variety of cloth mills from around the world to suit your individual needs, including Dugdale Bros, Ariston, Dormeuil, Loro Piana, Solbiati, Porter and Harding, Harrisons of Edinburgh and more. Our fabric range is made up of 100% natural fibres.
Wool is versatile in being able to be woven into superfine light & tropical weights, or heavy & warm weights. Different types of wool will create distinct drapes, durability and warmth. The weight of the wool is the best determinant of what is most appropriate for a winter or summer climate. Wool is a natural fibre. It breathes regardless of whether it is heavy or light.
Cotton is not only used for shirts; it can also look great in a suit or jacket. Although it might seem informal or casual, it can be dressed up depending on the occasion. Blazers or sports jackets can typically be made from cotton to give a natural and comfortable feel. An open weave cotton fabric can also create a linen look minus the price tag.
Linen is a thick and coarse fibre. It is durable, absorbent and dries faster than cotton. Its open weave makes it ideal for warmer climates, particularly in humid weather.
Blending different cloth types can enhance durability, sheen, texture, and softness. Each fabric choice and its percentage of blended fabric will create a different drape and overall feel to the cloth. Standard blends you may find are; linen and silk, cotton and linen, silk and cotton, wool and cashmere, or wool and mohair. There is a particular look associated with each blend. It is best to ask your fitter if you would like to explore this option.
