In addition to our extensive library offering cloths from Britain and Italy’s leading mills, Anderson & Sheppard has a long tradition of commissioning its own exclusive house suitings and sports coatings, most iconic of which are our flannels, herringbones and fine triple pinstripes. Our tweeds draw inspiration from our archive and include shepherd’s checks, large windowpanes and Donegals.
We prefer to commission our house cloths in an 11/12 oz weight and a super 130s yarn count quality. They tailor wonderfully and are excellent for three-season wear.
THE DUMFRIES GLEN CHECK 2016
In 2016, in celebration of our participation in the first-ever Dumfries House Wool Conference, led by patron HRH Prince Charles and the Campaign for Wool, Anderson & Sheppard collaborated with the Scottish mill, Johnstons of Elgin, to produce our exclusive length of glen check cloth. Woven in extra fine merino wool to an 11 oz weight, the worsted cloth works equally well as a sports jacket or three-piece suit. The mid-blue ground, combined with a claret overcheck, has a vintage yet contemporary feel that works well in both town and country.
