DIAMOND CHIP JACKETINGS

A LUXURY APPROACH FOR CASUAL JACKETS

Diamonds are a man’s best friend

For the first time, Scabal is offering its amazing “Diamond Chip” cloth for jacketings. Woven by a special process in Scabal’s own mill in Yorkshire, England, the new collection features a confident and exciting range of 12 shades that run from black and deep blue to bright red and vivid yellow.
 

As always, the “Diamond Chip” cloth is a 260g Super 150’s silk in a plain basket weave. Since 2001, this exceptional quality has won worldwide renown as an elegant, unique suiting. Given the strong demand in all markets for sporty and luxurious tailored jackets to be worn with contrasting trousers, Scabal has developed this new take on proven favourite. The “Diamond Chip jacketings” collection will satisfy a market demand for luxury cloths in the casual wear and weekend wear sectors.
 

The jacketings collection, now available through Scabal’s network of prestigious stockists worldwide, carries a woven selvedge stating “Scabal – Super 150’s – Silk With Diamond Fragments – Made In England”. Scabal sources its diamond fragments from a highly respected company in Antwerp, one of the centres of the world’s diamond trade. Since the late 1990s, Scabal has won a global reputation for its technical skill in developing cloth that combines precious stones and metals with superfine fabrics. Gold, platinum and lapis lazuli, as well as diamonds, are all used in Scabal’s specialist cloths.


Always with their eyes on the demands of the global luxury goods market, the design and technical teams at Scabal continue to blend human creativity and technical excellence. The “Diamond Chip” jacketings selection is yet another first for Scabal.
 

The ideal complement to this jacketings selection is Scabal’s superb “Concerto” collection for trousers. In 100% wool, this Super 150’s quality weighs 240gr and is available in 26 plain twill fabrics, with a palette running from beige to black.

EOS

NEW COLLECTION OF "EOS" FABRICS

 

Eos, the Greek goddess of the dawn and mother of the wind gods, is often depicted as a winged figure. She symbolizes elegance and grace, making her a natural choice for Scabal. It has created Eos, a 250-gram featherlight fabric with all the refinement of silk, in her honour.


Eos is 55% silk and 45% Super 180’s wool. The silk gives it a beautiful natural sheen, whilst extra-fine Merino wool creates an exceptional drape and weightlessness.


The fabrics in this collection have been serge woven. The main feature of this weave is its diagonal appearance. A vertical warp thread runs over and under a horizontal weft thread.


 

The colour palette is sober, with shades ranging from light grey to black, including mid-grey, charcoal, sea blue and navy blue. The designs are elegant, featuring discrete stripes, herringbones, plain and semi-plain patterns.

IMPERIAL TRILOGY

A suiting of rare excellence

 

By combining a Super 230’s yarn and super soft merino wool with a Super 160’s superfine pure merino yarn that contains guanaco, Scabal now offers a suiting that is beautifully soft to the touch, yet performs well throughout the year and in most climates.

 

Guanacos are graceful animals that are related to camels, llamas, alpacas and vicunas. They live in the arid mountains and deserts of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile and Argentina and have a double coat, a top coat with coarse protective hair and a very fine soft undercoat, which feels softer than the best cashmere. It produces relatively little of this soft undercoat, making it even more highly prized than alpaca.

 

The spinning, weaving and finishing wizards at Scabal have added 5% of this rare undercoat yarn to 230’s merino wool. The resulting yarn is incredibly soft and in order to enhance its performance qualities, it has been combined in Imperial Trilogy with Super 160’s merino yarn, which although stronger and more robust, is still beautifully soft. The elegant selvedge of this remarkable cloth reveals the three types of yarn that have been used.


Imperial Trilogy is woven in Scabal’s own mill in West Yorkshire, England. Although the cloth looks plain, closer inspection reveals very subtle patterns with both narrow and wider stripes.

 

Thanks to the skills of Scabal’s craftsmen, customers can enjoy all the advantages of this cloth that is exceptionally soft to touch and that has a superb worsted “bloom”. Qualities that discerning customers around the globe will be eager to discover.


It has taken Scabal more than two years of research and trials to successfully combine the exceptional qualities of guanaco fibre with superfine merino yarns. The result has been well worth the wait.

LAPIS LAZULI

Scabal is proud to announce its latest Lapis Lazuli collection, inspired by a stone with history that’s just as deep as its famous ultramarine blue colour.

 

Mined since prehistory in the Middle East, it featured heavily in the mythology of Mesopotamian culture, while in Sumeria it provided the Gods with their power and the Babylonians it was reserved for royalty. Through trade with the latter kingdom, the Pharaohs of Egypt acquired the precious mineral. To them it had therapeutic qualities, and was worn by healers and judges. It would also grace the Pharaoh himself in death, and lapis lazuli has been found in many of the royal tombs. Perhaps most famously, on the iconic death mask of the boy-King Tutankhamen.

 

From Egypt it reached the ancient Greeks, who would reward the bravest soldiers with rings and medals made from lapis. Like much of Grecian culture, this practice was appropriated, and continued by the Romans. They found a more exciting use for the special stone however, often employing it as an aphrodisiac.

 

The romans also gave the mineral its modern name, corrupting the Arabic word for stone. The natural colour was so vivid, that it forms the basis of the word for blue in many languages today, including French, Spanish, and even some Eastern European dialects.

 

The artists of antiquity coveted its pigment, and named it “ultramarine” meaning “beyond the sea”, as it was bright beyond compare. This pigment was hard to manufacture, and was only reserved for the robes of only the most revered and powerful figures.

 

During the European Renaissance it was so prized, that it became more valuable than gold, and pure pigment still carries this price tag today.

 

Specially carved stones are also popular in alternative therapies, and to the religions of the Orient it is said to center the life force, and open the third-eye.

 

A Super 150’s ultra-fine Australian wool and cashmere blend, infused with powdered lapis lazuli fragments, it possesses a year-round weight of 280g. The subtly lustrous natural shine, is achieved by manually dusting the stone across the cloth, just one example of how our modern mechanical production, still requires expert guidance from Scabal’s master weavers.

 

By making this cloth at our English mill we are continuing a long tradition of expertise and quality, having woven our best cloths at the same location since 1539. Such prowess is evident in the optimum fibre length, shrinkage and superior forming present across the collection.

 

There are 12 designs in total; 6 classic, and 6 contemporary takes on the cloth. The distinguished designs, which have been carried over from previous years due to popular demand, include three plains that range from light to dark hues of the famous blue.

 

Also on offer are two stripes, one wide and the other pinstriped, and an exquisitely subtle diagonal microdesign.

 

The new additions include a dogtooth pattern, and a large Glen-check. There are also 4 new stripes available, comprising 2 contrasting pinstripes, and 2 fancy stripes.

 

The new Lapis Lazuli collection from Scabal builds upon the supreme lineage of this noble stone, allowing you to benefit from the inherent and unparalleled aesthetic appeal, as well as the esoteric mystique of this marvelous mineral.

NOBLE FLEECE

Scabal’s new Noble Fleece Special edition cloth collection is the world’s first attempt at creating an ecologically and ethically sustainable superfine suiting.

 

Scabal has worked hand-in-hand with traditional Australian woolgrowers through the Scabal Noble Wool Club initiative, to ensure that the Super 200’s wool fibres have been responsibly produced to the highest quality.

 

Executive Chairman Gregor Thissen first conceived the idea for the Scabal Noble Wool Club in 2013, when visiting a traditional Australian merino farm and seeing how hard life was becoming for family-owned wool producers.

 

As a second-generation cloth merchant who worked alongside his father Johannes Peter for many years, Mr Thissen decided that Scabal should once again lead the industry in defining superfine cloth.


Scabal was the first company to break the Super 100’s barrier, and introduced the Yorkshire Super system to the world in order to explain the significance of this achievement. It was also the first cloth producer to debut Super 150’s, 180’s and 200’s collections.


In order to push the perception of the perfect Super beyond a number only, the Scabal Noble Wool Club takes a more holistic approach to the sheep’s environment and final fibre.


Firstly the farms must be family-owned and raising puree-bred Saxon merino sheep on granite soil. This sheep is what founded the Australian wool industry, and has declined in numbers due to its smaller fleece, despite the higher quality of its fibres.


Secondly there are discerning criteria covering the quality of the fibre’s strength and crimp. Both of these attributes govern how well the fibres respond to being spun, and impact the final cloth tremendously.


By ensuring these are of the highest possible calibre, we can create a cloth that is durable enough for a suiting, while retaining an exquisite handle and aesthetic.

 

Noble Fleece is available now in 25 distinguished designs, at EDDY's 2 store.

ORCHID COLLECTION

A NEW SENSORY DELIGHT

 

In keeping with its global reputation for creative flair and technical innovation, Scabal has once again added an exciting development to its finest suitings. Produced at the company’s own mill in Huddersfield, the English centre for superb worsted suitings, ORCHID carries on its fine merino fibres an essence derived from the tropical flowering plant.

 

ORCHID is a Super 150’s merino quality, weighing 240g, a perfect weight to be worn virtually all-year round by most of Scabal’s international customers. The natural fragrance that permeates the suiting is discreet, yet will remain in the cloth even after careful dry cleaning. Scabal’s technical wizards predict that it will enhance the cloth for the normal life cycle of a fine suit.

 

The Aztecs knew of the special qualities of the essence of orchids and wearers of ORCHID will enjoy the unique benefit of a sensory sensation that will only enhance their sartorial experience.

 

With this new and unique benefit, Scabal adds to the extraordinary qualities in its luxury collection, which includes cloths incorporating 24-carat gold, platinum, diamond chip and lapis lazuli. Wool has been woven for around 5,000 years yet the desire to produce something new, different, advanced and exciting continues to fascinate and stimulate the design and technical teams at Scabal.

 

Scabal has developed 14 patterns for ORCHID. The colour palette is restrained, centring on refined blues and greys, but close examination of the cloths reveals the complexity of the microdesigns, which include mini-herringbones, fancy broken stripes and very subtle multi-coloured stripes.

 

The all-important natural characteristics of fine wool have been enhanced thanks to the legendary expertise of the spinning, weaving and finishing specialists at Scabal’s West Yorkshire mill. The scent derived from the colourful and fragrant orchid has complemented a marvellous and stimulating new suiting. ORCHID is imbued with the fragrance of supreme luxury.

PRIVATE LINE

YOUR PERSONAL MESSAGE WOVEN INTO FABRIC

 

“Private Line” is a collection of fabrics into which the name of the customer is woven. The letters of the name feature one above the other and thus form a discrete line. Instead of a name, it is also possible to weave a text into the fabric, for example for a personal motto, a message of love, the name of a company or club, or even a poem. Or perhaps a wedding date or a date of birth, a case of never ever forgetting anniversaries or birthdays again. This enables a customer to have a joke in a banker’s suit, which normally stands for something serious and business-like. For example, he could order the following sentence to be woven into the fabric: “If you can
read this, you are standing far too close”
. Briefly speaking, by the tone and the content of the message, you will see the human side of the businessman.

 

Thanks to new technology, it is now possible to weave complete sentences, and this in an uninterrupted line or with spacing. The customer has the choice of two types of font: Cyrillic or Roman. Numbers can also be incorporated. There is no limit as regards the length of the sentence, so your power of imagination or personalisation will know no bounds!


Private Line is produced using a mix of 98% wool and 2% cashmere; a Super 180’s with a weight of 260 gram per metre. A beautiful quality with a magnificent and comfortable feel, available in navy blue, slate grey or black.


The minimum length of 4.40 metre fabric is woven in the Scabal owned factory in Huddersfield (Great Britain) and has a width of one and a half metre, which is unique within this range. All orders are completed within 3-4 months.

ROMANCE

PURE CASHMERE FOR SOFTNESS IN SUMMER

 

Cashmere is synonymous with exceptional luxury and softness. One usually associates this unique type of fabric with winter. However, Scabal does not wish to deny men this pleasure this summer and has therefore created a completely new fabric called “Romance”. It is a cloth of 280 grammes consisting of pure cashmere. This is ideal for men who have for a long time been yearning for a naturally elegant summer jacket.

 

Cashmere originates from a breed of mountain goat living in the Himalayas. For cashmere wool, only the underbelly hairs are “harvested”. Cashmere is one of the finest natural fibres around and is finer than normal sheep’s wool. The fibres are usually short, which presents technical difficulties when weaving a lightweight fabric. By adhering to stringent standards when selecting the raw material, which involves only harvesting the long hairs, Scabal has been successful in weaving a lightweight 280 grammes pure cashmere fabric range. Fine worsted cashmere is simply exceptional.

 

“Romance” drapes beautifully and has a fantastic feel. After all, pure cashmere stands for exceptional softness. Another benefit is the magnificent natural sheen, which is so unique to this fibre.

 

The name “Romance” was not just chosen haphazardly. It reminds us of the romance of stylish travel in the English countryside, gently cruising in the classic sports car along winding roads to stop for a fancy pick-nick. If time is indeed a luxury, then one might as well enjoy this luxury in the ultimate cashmere.


Romance is available in 27 different designs. The patterns range from various checks to herringbone patterns to plain fabrics. Natural hues, such as nuances of brown, green and sandy colours form the mainstay of this new line of fabrics which exudes natural chic.

SUMMIT

Scabal searched the world for the finest possible wool, found it in Australia and created a cloth worthy of the name SUMMIT. This cloth is so fine to touch that Scabal’s own technicians immediately classified it as “very rare wool”. SUMMIT is woven from an extremely ultra-ultra fine fibre. The wool is consistent along its length and deserves nothing but the finest treatment. To maintain its natural qualities, it was an obvious choice not to blend the wool with other luxury fibres. The result of this cloth is due to the ultrafine wool, which has high strength, incomparable lustre and a natural comfort, which is due to the fibres’ wave-like crimps.

 

To preserve the natural qualities of SUMMIT, the wool has been meticulously processed using traditional artisan methods in Scabal’s own mill in Huddersfield, England. From cleaning through spinning to a medium count of two nineties (2/90) and weaving to final finishing, no effort has been spared. There are of course limits to the processing of such fine fibres. Scabal was however the first to launch a Super 150’s, 180’s and 200’s.

 

Today, Scabal is taking it one step further with SUMMIT, a cloth produced with a technical tour de force that previously did not seem possible.

 

SUMMIT is a cloth in a medium all-year round weight of 280g/m and gives the ultrafine wool a full, rich

and flowing handle. Traditional processing follows SUMMIT to the very end, with a unique paper pressing for comfort, drape and easy tailoring. SUMMIT is 100% wool with a handle and feel to rival cashmere and an elegant, natural drape that truly does make it the ultimate choice for the connoisseur.
