Original Harris Tweed from the Outer Hebrides – yet so much finer and lighter than usual.

Jacket and waistcoat in hand-woven “New Superfine” quality. By Carl Gross.

Most tweed fabrics are quite heavy, which can be a nuisance after a while. This original Harris Tweed is different: It’s about 20% lighter (390g/m2 - 9.6 oz/sqyd). And the surface has undergone a special treatment with thistles to make it finer. The result: The jacket and waistcoat feel incredibly soft – yet are hardy and long lasting.
The robust jacket mixes and matches and is perfect for office or travel.
The herringbone pattern presents itself in subdued colours ranging from medium brown, green and black to blue and auburn. The Harris Tweed jacket can be worn with business trousers and, of course, jeans, chinos or cords for a new outfit every time. Wear to the office as a sporty-elegant alternative to business suits. Impervious to stains and creasing, making it the perfect travelling companion.
The soft, sturdy interfacing for an elegant appearance and perfect fit.
The slim-cut style with two side vents make you appear taller. With two flap pockets and one inset breast pocket as well as four practical inner pockets. Embossed leather buttons with Harris Tweed motif.

The waistcoat complements the jacket to a tee but also looks wonderful worn on its own in different ways.
In the past, a waistcoat was only socially acceptable worn with a suit or jacket, but nowadays it’s a fashion item in its own right. And not just on the American jazz stage. The lapels worked into the waistcoat ensure you will always look well-dressed even without a jacket. Closes with 5 leather buttons. Two flap pockets and two inset breast pockets. The back is in a contrasting colour with adjustable strap for a perfect fit.
