Superior Cloth Mills – Holland & Sherry

One of our core values here at Henry A. Davidsen is “Be Extraordinary.” Every day, we strive to provide extraordinary service to complement our extraordinary product. An extraordinary garment requires extraordinary fabric. With that in mind, today we revisit our series on superior cloth mills, with a focus on England’s Holland & Sherry.

Holland & Sherry – A Brief History

holland and sherry fabric samplesFounded in 1836 by Stephen George Holland and Frederick Sherry, Holland & Sherry is about as close to a household name in men’s tailoring as it gets. One of the oldest fabric mills and cloth merchants in the world, they first resided at 10 Bond Street in London and moved to Golden Square in 1886. In 2003, manufacturer Individualized Apparel Group acquired Holland & Sherry and brought them under their umbrella, alongside notable clothier Oxxford Clothes.

Today, Holland & Sherry still manufactures and sells exceptional cloth for tailored clothing. With offices and relationships with tailors all over the world, you’ll find their fabric books an any custom tailor shop worth its salt – Henry A. Davidsen, of course, being one of them.
