Three New Harris Tweed Jackets

I have three vintage Harris Tweed jackets 
waiting to be added to my online shop  
The first of the three (left) is unusual for American Harris Tweed jackets, in that it was actually made at The Spean Bridge Woolen Mill in Scotland.

They'll be added to my shop soon.

My Vicarious Trip To London

I live in New England in the USA, where there is little opportunity to be exposed to Tweedy things. One of my band mates (I'm a musician) has been in London recently, and he has sent me regular picture updates of his "tweed adventures." Here is a selection:

These are from the Stumper & Fielding shop 
on the Portabello Road, London

This photo was taken at the Thomas Farthing shop, near the British Museum. On receiving this photo, I immediately asked my friend to purchase the Donegal tweed bowtie for me (second to bottom).
