An exercise in simplicity, this Holland & Sherry Cape Horn Classics charcoal grey two-button three-piece suit pays great attention to small individual details that make a big impression.
Scarlet red accents are carried throughout the garment, appearing first in the monogrammed fourth button on the surgeon’s cuff sleeves along with the corresponding hand-worked buttonhole crown and grosgrain ribbon detail. Reappearing in the handtack on the lapel buttonhole, the scarlet red detail is continued in the paisley lining of the back of the vest. The continuation and consistency of design elements also extends to the notch lapel of the jacket, which is echoed in the notch lapel of the six-button vest.
CLOTH PROFILE: Holland & Sherry Cape Horn Classics. Cape Horn is an island situated at the southern-most tip of Chile in South America. The waters surrounding the island have been used for centuries as the main trade route for ships exporting goods throughout the world, including grain, gold and fine merino wool. This exclusive range of cloth has been woven from fine merino wool imported from the Patagonian region of Argentina. With abundant fresh water and nutritional vegetation, the valleys of Patagonia are the ideal habitat for merino sheep. The fibres are cleaner and stronger, resulting in a superior quality and high performance cloth.
The fabrics in this collection are a lighter version of our iconic Cape Horn classics quality: their plain weave construction makes them ideal for warmer climates as they allow the body to breathe and stay cool. The yarn used for this collection is a 64/2 new metric yarn, and whilst the warp yarn has a conventional twist for softness the weft yarn has been up-twisted to achieve a high twist yarn for durability. This formation makes it the ideal cloth for the ultimate travel suit as the high twist prevents excessive creasing. Included in this collection are a variety of traditional classics including Glen plaids, windowpanes, hound’s-tooth and best selling chalk- and pin-stripes. All fabrics have been carefully selected for their durable and lightweight qualities which in turn make them cool and comfortable to wear and easy to tailor. This bunch represents the ultimate in global business travel wear.
