The Need for Tweed
New Tweed Handsomeness at Unionmade
Land of good whiskey. Of William Wallace and haggis and kilts and James Bond’s boyhood home. (We assume
you saw Skyfall
Also: a fair amount of tweed.
Here to bring a little bit of the Scottish Highlands to your person: Harris Tweed for Unionmade
exclusive new collection of jackets, shirts and pocket squares made using a legendary Scottish tweed,
This story begins in 1846. That’s when Mr. Harris Tweed (we assume) invented Harris tweed, a type of wool
so popular and well regarded in Scotland that they passed an act of Parliament to define and protect it. So
yeah: pretty big deal, as far as wool goes.
This story finishes in 2012. That’s when you’ll march into Unionmade and verily demand (or, you know,
ask nicely for) some of their handsomest, tweediest finery
. We’re talking brown herringbone blazers
made by NYC’s Todd Snyder. A rugged overshirt from Gitman Bros. A lumberjack-y down vest from Crescent
It’s all the kind of stuff we could see Daniel Craig, 007 and/or you wearing on a fox hunt in the
Highlands, or while boarding up your childhood home in Scotland to protect M from Javier Bardem.
Or, like, on a date or something.
