Our fabric inventory is selected and updated to offer a new stylish and fashion-forward look. Most of our products are made of precious fibers, such as cashmere, virgin wool, cotton, and silk, always with an incomparable French and Italian touch. Our tailors import fabrics directly from England, France, and Italy.
The most common suit fabric is made from 100% wool. We offer suits made from exotic (expensive) cloth, such as lambswool or vicuna. Suits made from cotton, linen, cashmere, and silk fabrics are also available. Less expensive suits are often made of polyester or other synthetic fabrics. Suit cloth may be a blend of two or three of these different types of material, which gives the cloth the benefits of each of the blended materials. There are an infinite number of variations on the market. Inexpensive suits are made of polyester, but take note that even more expensive suits can be made from polyester or a polyester blend (often euphemistically called wool blends). For a classic all-season business suit, we recommend seek wool or wool and cashmere blends. Cotton, silk, and linen are typically reserved for warmer months. Corduroy, flannel, and tweed suits are typically colder weather suiting. For shirts, 100% cotton is generally most desirable. Polyester, while wrinkle resistant, will not last as long as cotton.
