This week - of July 20th, 2015 - sees the unveiling of a new bunch (technical term for the smartly leather bound swatch books of fabric we show to clients) called "BEDLAM". Created by Gladson - parent company to our clothier Huddersfield Fine Worsted - in New York City, it was presented to us by the redoubtable Mr Harrop, who came down from Yorkshire with it. Gladson is still a family company and their fortunes were founded by salesmen they sent out across the prairies with cases of cloth to show the farmers who, they had heard, would be giving away a daughter, in the matrimonial sense, and might need a suit.
To celebrate this, they have created a Bedlam "pub" in their beautiful landmark building office on Fifth Avenue, across from Tiffanys. So if you're in the vicinity and fancy a game of darts and a cold beer, do please go in to say hello - suite 503, at 730 Fifth Avenue, at the HMS HQ. Their elegant ex pat Creative Director Justin MacInerney will be happy to show you the selection!
