You may have recently come across the terms ‘hopsack suit’, ‘hopsack weave suit’ or ‘hopsack fabric suit’. These terms refer to a suit made using a fabric, such as wool, that has a hopsack weave texture – hopsack isn’t exactly a fabric in itself.
Hopsack suits have had a surge in popularity recently, and for good reason. Read on to learn about hopsack, and why it’s worth getting a custom hopsack suit.
Hopsack is a unique weave with a distinctive texture – specifically, a basket-like pattern with a loose structure. This is, in fact, why hopsack is considered a lightweight and breathable fabric option; and appropriately has a reputation as a summer fabric. Hopsack is also somewhat wrinkle-resistant, so there are plenty of benefits that come with a fabric with a hopsack weave.
The look that hopsack gives off also makes it a popular choice for sport coats and blazers.
