We have a NEW range – Introducing… Golf Extreme!
As a result of an increasing trend in Italy for bold patterns and tartans, our favourite cloth-maker Holland & Sherry have created a new line to match the demand. And if tailoring history has taught us anything it’s that a trend that starts in Italy will inevitably end up huge in the UK: peak lapels, slanted pockets, cool wools etc… – all originated from the catwalks (and streets) of Italy.
We asked the people behind the cloths to tell us a little more about how they came up with inspiration for the patterns:
This striking range is inspired by Scottish golf (Holland & Sherry’s London showrooms are on Savile Row, but their head office is in Peebles – on the River Tweed). Famous golfers worldwide have played its many renowned and magnificent courses, which regularly host the world’s most prestigious competitions.”
and for details about the construction and wear-ability of the cloth:
“Woven in a plain weave construction in 100% wool worsted, this collection offers a comfortable yet robust fabric ideal for withstanding the rigours of a golfing round. The cloth also benefits from an AquArret finish for excellent water repellence and superior soil and stain resistance. The soft handle and excellent drape qualities in no way diminish the hard wearing properties of the collection.”
The first King & Allen customer to try the new cloth was Jake Allen himself, who has been enjoying them both on and off the course. And if anyone has any tips on how he can improve his swing he’d love to hear them!

The term ‘pinstripe’ refers to the very thin, parallel lines that run through a cloth, contrasting with the main colour. Taken at face value, it would seem to be a fairly bland description of a simple fabric pattern. But the history of the pinstripe suit is anything from bland and, indeed, the suit itself has a host of connotations attached to it.Style Tips & Advice Style History
