PROVENANCE [ THE MERCHANT UTILITY JACKET ]
Made in France, in the heart of the Indre department. Three generations of the Hervier family have passed down the company's skills.
To this day Monsieur Hervier keeps an eye on everything being made in the atelier, including the fine finishes such as the keyhole buttonholes and impeccable piped pockets. The passion for garment making is clear in their work.
Fox Brothers, the English woollen mill established in Somerset in 1772 is credited with being the originator of fine woollen and worsted flannels during the last century and is still said to produce the best in the world. According to style connoisseurs, when choosing flannel, “always be sure to ask for it (Fox) by name”.
Fox Brothers first developed ‘flannel’ in 1803 and to quote Esquire magazine, is still the “Standard Bearer” for this wonderfully soft cloth. Loved by tailors who appreciate the way it cuts "like a good butter', this wonderfully soft cloth has evolved over many years and is now available as suit lengths in varying designs and weights, exclusively on The Merchant Fox.
