Used for suitings, topcoatings, overcoatings, sport coats, dress goods in men’s and women’s wear. The cloth gives a weave effect in fabrics that resembles the vertebral structure of the fish known as herring. The cloths are staples and always in demand. All herringbones are broken twill weaves but all broken-twill weaves are not herringbones. The latter should balance perfectly to be called a herringbone and not a broken twill. Many types of stock, color, and weaves are used in making the cloth.
