The Green Jacket – Made in England

April 10th, 2015

Not many people know this but The Green Jacket is made from cloth that has been made in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. The fabric is woven by New Mill-based textile firm Bower Roebuck, dyed by Holmfirth-based commission dyeing firm DP Dyers and finished by Moldgreen-based WT Johnson & Sons.

Once the cloth is ready, Bower Roebuck sends it to Savile Row bespoke tailor Henry Poole & Co to be made up for dispatch to the Augusta National Golf Club.

Enjoy your Masters Weekend.
