Made to measure: fabric options

There are over 800 made to measure fabric options, including handwoven Magee Donegal Tweed, corduroy, moleskin, and traditional suit fabrics. 

Tweeds include Magee Donegal tweed, Harris tweed, Ettrick Sporting tweed, and Abraham Moon of Yorkshire. Donegal tweed includes the traditional herringbone and salt and pepper tweed patterns - some still woven on handlooms in weavers' homes. A variety of different size checks and over-checks and a range of colours from muted to bold is available. These traditional tweeds are excellent for country sports jackets, coats, and overcoats. Examples of fabrics and the garments made from them are shown throughout this made to measure section of the website.

Fabrics for corduroy and moleskin trousers include traditional country colours such as olive green and dark brown as well as vibrant reds and golds. Our quality corduroy fabric is heavy weight (22/24 ounces, 680/740 grams), hard wearing, and warm. Our stylish traditional moleskin fabric (19/20 ounces, 590/620 grams) is similarly substantial and durable. The most popular colours are shown below; contact us if you would like to make an enquiry.

Suit and trouser fabric comes in a range of popular traditional styles of pinstripe, chalk-stripe, bird's eye, herringbone, Prince of Wales check, and plain colours suitable for business or leisure. A small sample is shown below. All our pattern bunches are available to view in our shop in Brecon - contact us to discuss possibilities if you are thinking about made to measure clothing.

Lining options for made to measure jackets, waistcoats and overcoats can include:

  • plain colours and herringbone weave
  • paisley pattern
  • striped
  • spotted

Further down this page you can see some of the hundreds of fabrics available. The colours are reproduced as accurately as possible, but please be aware that they may be displayed slightly differently on different computer, tablet, or mobile screens.
