Burlington Develops "Just US" Worsted Wool Fabrics
June 27, 2014

Burlington, a division of International Textile Group, has developed a line of worsted wool fabrics woven and finished in the United States.

The "Just US" fabric collection, Burlington says, is intended for men's trousers, suits, suit separates, blazers and sports coats - and is designed to be used for made-to-measure, custom tailors and branded and better department stores and specialty shop brands.

"Burlington's new collection of fine worsted fabrics opens up exciting opportunities for Made in America better apparel," said Peter Baumann, senior vice president of merchandising for Burlington men's wear.

"Fine worsted fabrics are a pillar to creating contemporary classic styling, but more recently, these fabrics have not been produced in the United States. With our new "Just US" worsteds, made in Cordova and Raeford, N.C., designers and brands can now reconnect the heritage of classic men's dress with modern constructions and color ways for performance and year-round comfort."

The "Just US" fabric collection is launching for autumn 2015, with samples currently available for viewing.
