Holland & Sherry
A cloth merchant with a passion for fabric since 1836...
Holland & Sherry supply the most luxurious and highest quality cloths worldwide. We endeavour to create the finest fabrics supplying the finest tailors with the finest service, imparting our passion and knowledge along the way.
Since 1836 Holland & Sherry has continued to supply prestigious tailors and luxury brands with some of the finest cloths in the world. Stephen George Holland and Frederick Sherry began the business as woolen merchants at 10 Old Bond Street, London, specializing in both woolen and silk cloths. In 1886 Holland & Sherry moved premises to Golden Square, at the time the epicenter of the woolen merchanting trade.
By 1900 the firm was exporting to many countries, it was around that time a sales office was established in New York. In the early part of the 20th century, the United Kingdom, Europe, North and South America were the dominant markets for the company. Amongst other distribution arrangements, there was a Holland & Sherry warehouse in St. Petersburg, Russia – a successful market prior to the revolution and now being successfully renewed.
By 1982 the business moved to Savile Row, which remains as our registered head office.
In 1968 Holland & Sherry bought Scottish cloth merchant, Lowe Donald, based at Peebles, in the Scottish Borders and decided to locate their distribution to the purpose built warehouse there. Of all the cloth merchants of Golden Square, which were established in the late 1800's, only Holland & Sherry remains. Over the decades we have purchased nearly twenty other wool companies.
We are constantly engaged in research for ever fine and more luxurious fibres and fabric qualities; sourcing the finest natural fibres, ranging from Super 240's, cashmere to pure worsted Vicuña. Our cloths are woven in the time honoured way to assured quality and good taste. A bespoke tailored garment in luxury Holland & Sherry cloth is truly an investment and always a pleasure to wear.

Luxury Super 160's with Cashmere and Silk.
Merino sheep are prized for their superfine wool, which is the finest and softest of any sheep. Careful breeding has helped produce fine micron wools with fewer imperfections and less fleece contamination, giving it limitless possibilities for cloth production.
For this collection Holland & Sherry has created an intimate blend of hand-combed cashmere and mulberry silk to produce a 1/62Nm yarn that has been proportionally woven with a 15.5µ superfine merino wool. In this combination, all three fibres enhance the performance, drape and handle of the cloth, ensuring superior quality and exquisite refinement.
Our latest Cashique collection incorporates all the qualities described above, and offers a comprehensive selection of attractive and sophisticated new designs. This collection of light weight fabrics has a luxurious handle and drape, making it the ideal choice for tailoring into a summer jacket.
SUPER 140's MERINO WOOL
The Royal Mile is in the heart of Scotland's historic capital Edinburgh. It is one of Scotland’s oldest and most famous streets and is the link between Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Palace of Holyroodhouse.
The name implies the distance between these buildings is one mile, however the reference is to one Scots mile, which equates to 1976 yards rather than an Imperial English mile which is 1760 yards.
This quality may be recognisable by some as it has been a significant part of our collection for many years under a previous name – also referring to distance!
The collection contains a range of classic weaves offered in traditional suiting colours. It is the perfect all-season suiting for the distinguished individual.
Due to the success of Holland & Sherry’s Royal Mile 1976 suiting collection, we have developed a series of plains in the same quality, and are delighted with the results.
