I had not been happy with fabric merchant Holland & Sherry's offerings this past year or two. It all seemed to me too light, and too fragile. Perhaps that is why I appreciate the company's Target Elite bunch 1037 for Spring/Summer 2010. Too new to even be on the web site yet (the photo is actually that of the Victory Lightweight bunch from the same release which is one reason that the numbers in the picture do not relate to anything in this post), Summer Target is nine ounces/280 grams in weight, and though it has a nice hand at Super 130, they didn't take the Super thing too far.
Target Elite is among the company's thickest bunches with something for just about everyone. There are a nice gray pick and pick, several nailheads, and all the stripes a man could want along with the usual assortment of things that could only be intended for ladies couture.
One never knows if a particular tailor will pass the savings along or keep them but there is a promotional discount of 25% off list on the new H&S cloth through February 28. That ends a bit too soon for the travelling tailor visits but enterprising men may still find a way to reap some savings this Spring.
