Suits That Wear Like Iron

Years ago, in the days before the introduction of superfine wools, one of the greatest attributes a suit could have was the strength and durability of its cloth.  This was achieved by weaving the cloth with more “picks and ends”, making it more solid and, therefore, stronger. The additional weight would be offset by a “hard finish” which made the cloth smooth and wearable for much of the year.  These “Wear Like Iron” cloths are still produced by a number of fine English mills.  And, they are, in fact, the cloths most Savile Row tailors prefer.

Pictured below are our “Wear Like Iron” collections:

books of fabrics for custom made suits

 

Each collection has a unique point of view.    The Worsted Alsport from Hardy Minnis has  a country flair; the Heritage Twist from Standeven and the High Twist from Huddersfield Textiles have a vintage, retro look, like out of a 30’s movie. (We use these cloths often for theatrical productions.) And, the other four collections have many blues and greys for business wear.  These cloths range in weight from 11 to 14 oz per yard.  They range in price for 2-piece custom suits from $2395 to $2995.

Could you use a suit that “Wears Like Iron?”

With appreciation always,
