Your clothes are only as good as the fabric they are made with. The difference between a $50 and $500 piece is often the difference in the quality of the fabric and of course the craftsmanship. When you put on a Herringbone & Sui garment you will instantly feel the difference. The way the fabric falls and feels on your body is altogether something special. The reason we are able to do this is because we source our fabrics from the most reputed and well known mills in the world. A few weeks ago we began this journey and looked at four of the mills we work with, this week we will move on to four more.
A British establishment, built in 1842 by Jules Dormeuil, the company is now a world leader in providing fine fabrics.
