Introducing our Signature Bunch a Super 160s Wool Fabric

By | News

Introducing our Signature bunch. After months of design, and development, we are thrilled to be launching our brand-new fabric collection, Signature.

The styling of our Signature bunch has taken great consideration and development, to compliment the other bunches within the range. This new Signature bunch provides something for everyone, with a large range of plains in twill, hopsack, sharkskin, and herringbone grounds. A truly varied collection of cloth.

Boasting a composition of 100% Super 160s Wool fabric, with a weight of 240/260gms, this Signature collection offers a beautiful all-season bunch, offering the perfect weight for a transitional cloth, that can be worn for any season.

A supremely soft touch wool fabric, with a light, fluid drape and luxurious handle. This elegant wool fabric is constructed with a fine 2-ply yarn in warp and weft to give the cloth stability and durability.

John Foster’s Signature Bunch, designed for tailors, executed for wear.

Manufactured to create the most exquisitely, elegant fabrics, which whisper sophistication. A bunch which offers tonal colouration for understated sartorial elegance.

Soft Ash, Smoke, and Charcoal Grey, Rich Cobalt Blue, Air Force, Navy, and midnight, all expected hues from a men’s tailoring bunch, incorporating Latte, and Coffee Brown for a more relaxed look.

This Super 160s Wool Fabric Signature bunch offers the ability to dress up for occasions or pair down for everyday wear.

Our new collection encompasses timeless colours and patterns, such as plains, checks and stripes in grey, black and navy; but ‘Oxbridge Flannel’ offers much more than this. We have brought a contemporary twist to classic cloths, featuring traditional designs in a range of vibrant shades such as lilac, tobacco, wine and aquamarine.

Containing a wide range of colours and patterns the collection boasts 75 cohesive cloths. Chalk stripes, houndstooth, checks and a modern twist on the classic glen check in harmonious colours, maintain an element of co-ordination throughout.

New cloth ‘Oxbridge Flannel’ gives wearers the scope to be creative and playful when designing garments; creating a plain suit with checked waistcoat, a houndstooth jacket with plain trousers or a brightly coloured blazer with tonal trousers. The combinations are endless, leaving room for individual style and imaginative nods to trends.

Crafted using a Super 120’s worsted-woollen hybrid yarn, the handle is ultra-soft as a result of the traditional double mill finishing technique. The luxurious cloth weight of 370gms/ 13oz, lends itself perfectly to Autumn/ Winter garments.

Woven in our Bradford mill, in the heart of Yorkshire’s textile industry, the cloth is washed and pressed using only the purest and softest water, straight from the Pennine Hills. These processes have remained the same for the last two hundred years; this history ensures that all the skills of yesterday are used in our cloths of tomorrow.

All 75 ‘Oxbridge Flannel’ cloths are stock-supported and available now.
