    One thing to add about Cheshire Clothing - the men who now own the company are the same guys who managed the old one. So it's really the same exact company, the only difference is it is no longer owned by a giant conglomerate (thank goodness.)

    Hield is a British woolen mill which now also has a clothing line sold at Saks.

    Ah so desu ka. My memory did not serve me completely correctly. Hield is affiliated with Cheshire Clothing, I forget exactly how. It is or was a fabric house and now offers some tailored clothing (not necessarily made by Chester Barrie). Hield is also sold at some Saks 5th Avenues. Frankly, it's not like the world needed another British shirtmaking line.

    Hield's primary business is in weaving fine suit fabrics. Hield is not a fabric merchant like Dormeuil, Scabal, H. Lesser, John G. Hardy or Harrisons of Edinburgh. Scabal owns the British weaver Bower & Roebuck, and John G. Hardy is part of the same group as the weaver Huddersfield Fine Worsteds. Hield, along with Moxon, is under Gamma Beta Holdings, which is controlled by the Chamsi-Pasha family. Only fairly recently did Hield enter the finished clothing business.

    Ah, Hield, that's the name I couldn't remember. Saw the suits at Saks, and they are indeed from Cheshire Clothing. Also, Cheshire is sold under the Connaught label at Carrol & Company.
