Summitextraordinarily fine fabric
The pinnacle of the Scabal special editions is the Summit collection. Woven from the most elite wools available. Summit is an ultra ultrafine fibre in the lower 12 micron range. It is processed in its purest form without corrupting it with any other fibres. The result is an extraordinarily fine fabric with an elegant, natural drape and a touch so soft it rivals cashmere. Colours and designs are understated and tasteful. The Summit collection really is the ultimate choice for sophisticated tailoring.
Treasure BoxPrecious metals
Our exquisite Treasure Box collection brings the pleasure of platinum and 24-carat gold to the world of suitings. Crafted from ultra fine Super 150’s merino wool, the precious metals are interwoven into this luxury cloth by our British master weavers. Midnight blue, anthracite grey and noble black ground shades set off platinum and gold flecks depending upon the design chosen.
Noble FleeceSuper 200's merino wool
This collection has been crafted from pure Super 200’s merino wool, sourced directly from family-owned farms in Australia that are members of the Scabal Noble Wool Club initiative. A sustainable and ethically responsible superfine luxury fabric, it is also the first in a line of Scabal Noble cloths collection that seek to preserve traditional methods of sheep farming to provide wool to be woven at our heritage British mill.
Noble StarA fabric of precision
Hand-crafted at Scabal’s Yorkshire mill entirely from high-quality Super 200’s wool, it makes for superior suits at a comfortable 320g weight. The class and character of Noble Star comes from its construction: very fine yarn is twisted together, in warp and weft, and then twined again to form a bigger, bolder fleece. The result is a perfectly poised look, with a dose of decidedly British elegance.
Diamond Chip JacketingsThe Finest Jackets
The dazzling Special Edition collection, Diamond Chip Jacketings is a head-turning example of Scabal’s continued innovation. Woven by a special process in our own mill in Yorkshire, England, the collection features a confident and exciting range of 12 shades that run from black and deep blue to bright red and vivid yellow.
Vicuna JacketingExquisite luxury
Take a hike high into the Andean plains and you won’t have to cast your eye far before you catch sight of a vicuña. These doe-eyed, tawny coated creatures are cousins of the llama, pro-tected from the elements by a fleece so fine that the Incas considered it to be cloth of gold. Scabal’s vicuña jacketings collection includes six luxurious designs crafted from 100% vicuña: three bold checks and three classic herringbones.
PanoramaInspired by twelve iconic buildings around the world
When you have teams, who travel all over the world it’s not surprising that their inspirations come from far afield. We started taking photos of interesting buildings with the idea of creating fabrics that take their inspiration from elements of the building in the picture capturing not just the building but that moment in time. From an original list of over 100, twelve have been selected as the starting point of this limited collection. Each photograph offered a different angle to take as inspiration. From the colours, materials and shapes of the structure, to external staircases, samurai steelwork and imaginative lighting designs, all have inspired and challenged the team at Scabal and the result is a collection of uniquely interesting designs. Presented in a specially constructed display box and delivered with a woven label showcasing the Scabal building icon. These twelve fabrics have been created at our own mill in Yorkshire, England. Each fabric is woven from the finest Super 120s wool with a dash of cashmere to give it a soft handfeel and an added touch of luxury.
SunrisePrecious & luxury suiting
Creative excellence and technical skill are combined in Sunrise, Scabal’s precious luxury suiting cloth for men of taste and distinction. Its supremely soft handle, deliciously light feel and exceptionally elegant shine are produced by the marriage of 50% Super 200’s wool and 50 % silk. The collection heralds the dawn of a new level of sophistication at the very top of the suitings market.
Noble JacketThe most elite fibres
Handcrafted at our heritage British Mill from superfine merino wool sourced through the Scabal Noble Wool club, its unique 100% Super 200's composition includes some of the most elite fibres on the planet. With its novel weave structure this bunch creates a party jacket of unparalleled softness to the touch that still retains a crisp, pure handle. Egyptian blue, dark navy and black all present an understated approach to luxury cloth and tailoring.
Noble PhantomElegant drape
Distinguished even amongst our famous Special Editions, this luxury cloth collection consists of 25 dignified designs. It is woven in a plain weave of 200g in the style of traditional tropical fabrics, making it an ideal fabric for summer. Proudly made in our own weaving mill in Huddersfield, from superior superfine merino wool from the Scabal Noble Wool Club, it boasts an elegant drape and wonderfully soft feel.
Diamond ChipSuper 150's and pure silk
The iconic Diamond Chip collection was the very first of our pioneering luxury fabrics to incorporate precious stones within the weave. By crushing pure diamonds into fragments, we are able to directly blend them into a Super 150’s wool and pure silk suiting at our heritage British mill. The result is a thread that shimmers in the light, giving garments a subtle luxurious glow, alongside a soft feel and drape.
Vicuna SuitingsA miraculously rare fibre
The fruits of nearly 500 years of such passionate dedication sit before you, but just like the noble Incas before us, we have selected only the very best Vicuña strands from Peru. Only 1/100 of the fibres available can be combed in the special way we require before they can be woven. This adds an even more exclusive element to such a miraculously rare fibre, and guarantees an unparalleled level of quality, not to mention luxury. Vicuña is also notoriously sensitive to chemical treatment, and our process is among a select few who have successfully dyed the natural material from its golden colour, making it more versatile. Available is a selection of 8 designs, each with their own unique and subtle distinctions.
