A Recommend From Sator Of Cutter And Tailor

Sator, the famous online writer who features heavily on Style Forum and on Cutter And Tailor, has written a piece on Harrisons Burley, an independent and family owned cloth company from Yorkshire, England. Harrisons are rather interesting to me because they are one of the first companies to run an eBay store which sells cut lengths and ships almost anywhere. You can log onto their website here, and then springboard from there into their eBay store where you will find cut lengths. For anyone who has an existing relationship with a real tailor, this allows you to buy cloth straight from the company and then take it directly to your tailor, thereby saving some money along the way.

For example, a super 160's wool/cashmere navy plain suiting fabric in a 3.5 metre length costs approximately $213.00AUD withstanding shipping and not including VAT which an Australian would not pay given that it is being exported directly from Yorkshire. On that basis, you are paying approximately $61 AUD a metre for fabric which from another known branded bunch, a comparative price example is $110.00 a metre for a super 110's including freight and over $230 a metre for a super 160's. However, with many types of wool and wool blends it is impossible to compare apples with apples. Either way, this is a nice resource to have available for the average man who does not have an existing relationship with a cloth company.
