The first 100% British-made cotton suiting and coating collection in 50 years, Cottonopolis marks a new chapter in the North of England’s rich clothmaking history. A haven for cotton manufacturing in the 19th century, Manchester was widely known as ‘Cottonopolis’ and our pioneering range is named in honour of the city’s long-standing legacy.
Renowned for its superior strength, softness and colour retention, the extra-long staple Supima yarn lends a characteristic lustre to the finished cloth, whilst the individual dying technique creates a subtle ‘changeant’ effect between the warp and weft.
A tightly woven gabardine construction and water-resistant finish make this cloth perfect for all types of tailoring including trench coats. Available in a range of vibrant and pastel colour variations, Cottonopolis delivers the perfect balance of quintessentially British eccentricity, versatility and enduring elegance.
