WEAR YORKSHIRE BRAND WITH PRIDE
The Yorkshire brand is riding high following a £30 million injection as part of the campaign ‘Welcome to Yorkshire’. Now proud men of the county can literally wear their hearts on their sleeves with a suit cut from Yorkshire cloth, put together by Leeds-based Suit the City.
Developed by textile maker J H Clissold, the fine Australian Merino wool cloth features the word Yorkshire incorporated in the pinstripe and is proving popular with local businessmen keen to pay a subtle tribute to their heritage.
Gordon Inglis from made-to-measure specialists Suit the City is busy with requests to be measured up for these unashamedly partisan threads and among his client list are several prominent Yorkshiremen including Mr. Yorkshire himself Canon Keith Madeley.
Gordon says: “Yorkshire is experiencing a major resurgence at the moment and although currently defined by its tea, cricket team and pudding, it’s great that the cloth mills of the past are coming to the fore again to give Yorkshiremen the chance to ‘earn their stripes’ with a suit made from this inspiring new fabric.”
To be Yorkshire through and through, a Suit the City made-to-measure 2 piece suit starts from £300.
