How to choose the proper cloth for your suit?

Jean-Paul Samson


When having a suit or actually whatever garment tailored, the cloth – fabric – material will have a great effect on many parts.

So proper preparation literally protects from ‘piss-pore’ performance, assuming that you want the garment to add value to your appearance. But where to start if you never picked a cloth from a swatchbook called a bunch?

Then first look, or ask us, what cloth has those properties? It could be for example Cashmere. Okay, that is 1 step. So step 2 is to have a look and feel at such a cloth. For our Amsterdam based clients it is most convenient to just visit us or make an appointment. No obligations if you need further advice/guidance.

For our clients living further away and abroad we have many cloth collections online to have a first look. So please have a look at some great samples from in this case the  Holland & Sherry Cashmere bunch called Visual Splendour (Fusion HS1577 - Super 160's Worsted Cashmere and Silvermink).

Any ideas how we could serve you better then hit me with an email.
