Enterprise, but not as you know it

You’re familiar with ‘Star Trekkin’ across the universe, on the Starship Enterprise’ and even Enterprise car and van hire but we are boldly going forward with our very own iteration, the newly-launched Enterprise bunch from Hardy Minnis.
Deciding upon the right fabric selection when it comes to crafting a suit is not always straightforward but is vitally important. This is where our wealth of experience comes into play: we are rightfully proud of our long heritage of producing superior cloth with collections and are pleased to announce the official launch of our new Enterprise bunch: a 2x2 twill weave which creates an even, luxuriously smooth handling 310gm fabric, making it ideal for all year round use.
The initial reaction has been very positive reports HFW's Managing Director Iain Milligan, currently on a fact-finding mission in South East Asia who says feedback from Japan, Korea, Bangkok and Singapore has been that the weight will make it a fantastic all-year-round suiting bunch. Customers have been admiring the array of browns and greens they're not accustomed to seeing in competitors' bunches. "The typical British finish is appreciated" says Milligan, “It has the perfect firm touch with just the right amount of lustre". Meanwhile, back in our London showroom HFW's Geoff Wheeler says “It’s a cloth made in the finest Huddersfield tradition, employing the best luxury yet robust yarns. It’s the perfect weight for a garment with shape and style”.

Enterprise is the perfect weight with a great handle, which feels like it will make like a dream
