Decades ago, in answer to the challenges of modern business consumers, Hickey Freeman invited Loro Piana to create luxurious men's suiting wool for all season wear. This is the origin of Tasmanian, super 150's wool developed by Loro Piana, exclusively for Hickey Freeman. It was discovered that due to the climate in the Blue Mountains, the fleece of sheep raised on Tasmania - the Indian Ocean Island off the coast of Australia - yields especially fine wool. This lightweight super fine caliber wool brought about revolutionary sartorial change, as the impeccable style and meticulous tailoring of a Hickey Freeman suit could now be worn comfortably year round. the Hickey Freeman Tasmanian suit continues to be the gold standard for men who expect as much from their clothes as they do from themselves.
