New and exclusive to BOSS for Fall/Winter 2019 is Traceable Wool, inspired by the brand’s heritage in tailoring and incorporating its ongoing commitment to finding more sustainable ways to produce and finish premium garments.
Six looks across the BOSS Menswear collection will be made purely from traceable merino wool, with the assurance that the entire manufacturing process is meticulously supervised and can be tracked from the origins of the fabric to the creation of the final piece. The process begins with sheep grown and shorn in New Zealand, only from accredited ZQ-certified farmers who meet the highest on-farm standards. Generating high-quality, ZQ-certified merino wool, animal welfare is safeguarded with the prohibition of mulesing and a continuous commitment to social responsibility and environmental protection. The yarn is then spun and the fabric woven in Italy at the leading national weaver, REDA, an iconic family company defined by excellent handcraftsmanship.
Incorporating business and smart-casual designs, each timeless piece in this unique capsule will feature a special hangtag to highlight the journey of traceable wool. The high-performance fabric itself offers water-resistance with a lightweight feel, and moisture control for lasting comfort and dryness. All these features come together in an impressive selection of apparel that promises the responsible sourcing of luxurious merino wool.
