Samuel Baron Clothiers Fabric Profile: Scabal

Scabal is one of the most prestigious custom fabric mills operating out of Savile Row, London. Although officially founded by Otto Hertz in 1938, this family-owned company has been weaving the finest English cloth since as early as 1539. In order to maintain quality at the highest standards, Scabal manufactures each and every product in-house, never outsourcing, while upholding a respect for the environment, customers, and employees. Such upstanding company practices are particularly admired here at Samuel Baron Clothiers.


While consistently enhancing its made-to-measure suits, Scabal provides a timeless and classic feel with modern touches and superb accessories to accompany each custom look. They also offer sartorial options to completely personalize each garment's collar style, cuff style, button color, threads, lining, and pattern. With over 5,000 different high-quality fabrics, the choice is yours.
