s by S&S. I was up in Yorkshire last week, based in Huddersfield and seeing a few of the mills and merchants, including Pennine, Johnsons and . What struck me hardest when I got back was the lack of understanding among bespoke customers, and even Savile Row tailors, about how the mills, the merchants and the various brands on the cloth books relate to each other. The front of house at one Row tailor thought wove their own cloth, while most admitted they had never been up to see any of the processes which leads to myths about the finishing, among other things. This first post, then, will set out the various players in Yorkshire and their relationships. The West Yorkshire town of Huddersfield is situated at the convergence of the rivers Colne and Holme. Inhabitants of the area discovered that the water which flows from the Millstone Grit Pennine hills gave excellent results for the washing of raw wool. The industry was traditionally cottage based, with spinning and weaving often taking place in the same dwelling. Many of the workers operated from smallholdings, supplementing their income with the manufacturing of wool textiles. But then came the industrial revolution of the 19th Century, bringing with it great change as the wool textile industry became mill based and mechanised. smith & co Woolens Virtually all the valleys' inhabitants were left with little option but to take their skills into the mills undertaking the processes of scouring, carding, spinning, weaving, dyeing and finishing as many of the mills were totally vertical and carried out all processes. Manufacture of these fine fabrics demanded a high level of expertise and Huddersfield quickly became synonymous with fine woollen and later, fine worsted cloth manufacture. The name ˜Made in Huddersfield, England became a highly revered global brand, which appeared on the selvedges of many fabrics worldwide. These high quality fabrics were the choice of Kings and Princes alike. Princess Elizabeth visits Huddersfield's textile heartland in 1949 with her husband the Duke of Edinburgh. She chats with a man in warp preparation. A man works in the pattern weaving department of a Huddersfield textile mill producing new samples, ideas, colours and blends in different weights of fabrics. The look and design of Huddersfield Fabrics was and still is world renowned. King George inspects the Fabric in the mending department during this 1919 visit to Huddersfield.

More History The woollen industry has profoundly influenced the course of English history since the 14th century. Today with all the results of technological achievement throughout the world influencing our lives, woollen and worsted cloth is still regarded as the ideal clothing by most people living in moderate and cool countries. Today, as in years past, the British, made in Huddersfield label is linked with the best in woollen and worsted cloth, and carries a cachet which is indisputable. The provision of woollen coverings, firstly in the form of raw wool and later in clothes, has been a trade of great importance in England for more than 600 years. Even today the Lord Chancellor of England sits in the House of Lords on a woolsack- a reminder of the fact it was wool which first bought prosperity to England in the Middle Ages. Magnificent churches and gracious house can be seen in many parts of England, even in quiet small villages, which owe their existence to the wool and cloth trade. The cloth manufacturers are also responsible for many of the names by which Englishmen are known, for instance, Weaver, Walker, Fuller and Dyer. An unmarried woman is still known as a spinster. Although the methods of converting raw wool into cloth have changed vastly over the years, with the introduction of new forms of power and new types of machinery, it still remains an industry in which the individual craftsman is of great importance. It is also an industry mainly in the hands of long established companies with years of experience and tradition behind them. The history of textiles is long and eventful, steeped in tradition and intrinsically woven into the heritage of West Yorkshire. The name of Josiah France has been connected with cloth making at Honley, Huddersfield, since 1880 when he rented one of the original mills in the village. Cloth making at Honley goes back to 1344 and Josiah France himself came from a family already well-established in the days of handloom and cottage weaving. Over the years the company prospered and expanded, changing first of all from water power and hand loom weaving to steam, and later to all-electric power. A consistent policy has established the name of Josiah France, throughout the world, as synonymous with top quality worsted cloth. In spite of changes in overseas markets resulting from two world wars and other upheavals, the company succeeded in finding markets by constant attention to changing tastes and production methods. 85% of Josiah France worsteds are exported, either directly or indirectly. Records show that cloth manufacture has been carried out on the site of Cam Mills since 1532. The company dates back to the 1860's when Mr Thomas Hunt joined forces with Mr Arthur Brend Winterbotham and the present company title was registered in 1887. Since 1920 the company has been linked with other West of England mills in the Winterbotham, Strachan & Playne group, which has subsidiaries in Trowbridge and Huddersfield and a sales organisation operating from London, France, Italy and Belgium. From the 1800's the company has successfully exported to all parts of the world and currently some 50% of the 400,000 yards of cloth produced annually at Cam Mills is sold overseas under the name Cam Mills (West of England) Limited. The best worsted and woolens cloth In addition to its woollen and worsted flannels, doeskins and coatings, the company was renowned for its speciality products, piano bushing cloth and billiard table cloth. Trafalgar Mills in Huddersfield were built in 1896. The building was designed by the founder of the firm, Mr A E Learoyd, and its basic layout was so modern in concept that, apart from the introduction of new types of machinery, no changes were necessary to maintain its reputation as one of the best planned mills in the industry. This sound planning, combined with the use of the best machinery available and the high standards of the workers employed, enabled the company to establish itself as a manufacturer of some of the finest worsteds in the world. The company produced some 7,000 pieces of cloth per year, of which 80% was exported and a further 15% was exported indirectly.

Sometimes it seems as if we have forgotten the purpose of the sport jacket.  While in recent years it has not been intended for active sport, there was a time in the not so distant past when a great looking sport jacket was an opportunity to live a little and make a definite statement.  It was an opportunity to express oneself.  As jackets began to enter the work environment, a terrible thing happened; patterns and colors began to take on a dull samenesslulling us into sartorial boredom.  This bunch reverses course and returns life back to the Sports Jacket. 's prestigious Lagoon collection is a range of mixed cloth qualities. Each quality is a mix of premium wool, silk, or linen, each time offering a unique confluence of two different worlds. For example, blends of natural linen and luxurious silk combine casual and chic, a smarter alternative to traditional linen.
