Our Fabrics

Below you’ll find a run-down of the fabrics we’re using in our SS22 collection. We pride ourselves in the breadth and scope of the linens we use across our range of clothing. We’re only scratching the surface of what’s possible with linen, but we’ve already got some options that might take you by surprise.

Belgian Midweight Shirting Linen

This super-soft midweight shirting linen has a silken handle
and soft drape that make it a joy to wear in British summertime. It’s available in a colour palette of earthy pastels. The fabric is made by Masters of Linen® certified producer, Libeco. A fifth-generation family run mill that’s carbon neutral and uses a zero-waste production process.

Content – 100% linen
Weight – 165gsm
Origin - Libeco, Belgium
Usage – Belgian Midweight Signatures, Grandpas and Smocks

Irish Midweight Shirting Linen

Fractionally lighter than our Belgian Midweight Shirting equivalent, the Irish midweight shirting linen has a soft texture and slubby complexion that gives it an amazing handle and ultimate wearability in warmer weather. The fabric is made by Baird McNutt, a Northern Irish mill that uses 100% renewable energy and focuses on minimising the impact and quantities of its water usage.

Belgian Canvas Linen

This hefty canvas linen is unusual for clothing. But it’s a fantastic option
for unlined summer jackets. Its substantial weight gives it a purposeful drape that retains its overall shape nicely, while the openness of its weave gives it a breathability that makes it a chameleon fabric in a range of temperatures. It’s made by Masters of Linen® certified producer, Libeco. A fifth-generation family run mill that’s carbon neutral and uses a zero-waste production process.

Belgian Stonewashed Linen

This linen is definitively our most texture-heavy fabric. The stonewashing process confers a matte finish and unique handle that differentiates it from its more uniform, plain weave cousins. The fabric is made by Masters of Linen® certified producer, Libeco. A fifth-generation family run mill that’s carbon neutral and uses a zero-waste production process.

Content – 100% linen
Weight – 220gsm

Usage – Bomber Jackets, Patch Pocket Trousers & Shorts.

Irish Heavy Shirting Linen

Normally reserved for our winter shirting, this heavy Irish shirting linen
is back in Short Sleeve form for Summer ’22. A suiting linen repurposed for shirting and maybe even better in the latter form. The fabric will soften and develop a unique patina with wear. It’s made by Baird McNutt, a Northern Irish mill that uses 100% renewable energy and focuses on minimising the impact and quantities of its water usage.
