The Fox on Sunday : New Upholstery Flannels
Fox Brothers & Co. is credited with being the originator of fine woollen and worsted flannels in 1803, and is still said to produce the best in the world. Iconic images from recent history show gentlemen of great style wearing Fox Flannel. Sir Winston Churchill’s Savile Row tailor Henry Poole favoured a chalk stripe, Hollywood legend Cary Grant often wore Fox and of course, Gregory Peck in the film ‘The Man In The Grey Flannel Suit’.
Revolutionary at the time, and a favourite among tailors, artisans and fine cloth enthusiasts to this day, we take a lot of pride in our world famous flannel. According to style connoisseurs, when choosing flannel, “always be sure to ask for it (Fox) by name”.
