SUPER 100’S AND 130’S WORSTED PLAINS
Offering incomparable comfort and resilience, Holland & Sherry’s Target Gaberdines collection comprises two qualities.
Serge is constructed from a 2/2 twill and generally has the same number of threads in both warp and weft directions; the twill line produced runs from left to right at a 45 degree angle. Traditionally serge cloths were used by the military because of their ability to withstand harsh wear. A serge fabric is considered to be more versatile and is used for suitings, trousers and blazers.
Gaberdines are constructed from a 2/1 twill with significantly more threads in the warp than in the weft. This tightly woven fabric is smooth on the reverse with a steep twill diagonal running from left to right on the face.
