The name says it all! This crisp fabric is one of our all-time favourite bunches, from world-renowned cloth merchants Holland & Sherry. It's a durable fabric that is perfect for business or a wedding abroad as it is lightweight and amazingly crease-resistant. It travels well and, even though it is light in weight, it will stay crease-free all day. It's available in a variety of patterns and colours, so there's something for everyone.

Bamboo is a beautifully-soft cloth, sometimes known as 'California Cashmere.' It's a popular choice with our vegan clients, as no animal products are used in its production. This bunch, from Huddersfield Fine Worsteds, has plain colours as well as a range of audacious checks and brighter hues, making it a great choice for a wedding suit. We love showing the bamboo cloths to our customers, as they are always surprised by the soft, luxurious feel of the cloth. If you would like to order some samples, please contact us today.
Named after the world-famous street in Edinburgh, the Royal Mile collection features a range of traditional suiting colours and patterns. A favourite amongst our business suit customers for its luxurious feel and classic weave. Also, a lightweight, luxurious cloth for summer wedding with more of an Italian look. We just love the range of stripes available in this bunch, from the classic pinstripe to the chalk stripe and pin-dot stripe. It's the small details that make the difference!
City of London
Another firm favourite with our business clients, due to it's luxurious, yet hard-wearing nature. Perfect for day-to-day business wear, it comes in a variety of weaves from twill and herringbone to birdseye . It's also a great choice for a winter wedding due its heavyweight feel and the choice of colours and patterns, from a glen plaid to bold houndstooth. Traditional English tailoring that makes a classic suit that will last. You can order samples of City of London here.
