Hopsack is a classic weave that produces the very subtle appearance of small squares on the fabric surface. Legend has it the name derives from the similar texture of the plain weave sacks that harvesters once used to gather hops. Thus: hopsack (took us geniuses a while to piece that together). As lovers of a hoppy after-work beer, we're thrilled to use such a fine and storied fabric.
Unlike those harvest bags, our Hopsack suits are made of luxurious 95% Wool / 5% Cashmere woven in Italy at Marzotto(r), a premier textile mill for over 160 years. The quality feel of the fabric is undeniable and, as an added bonus, the texture makes it difficult to wrinkle, so these suits make excellent travel gear.
100% silk lined and tailored at a state of the art facility in Canada, these are some of our highest quality suits yet.
