Our Harris tweed Lansdown coat is a stunning statement piece, harnessing high end British design and finest quality hand woven British tweed, lining and buttons. Combine this with the fact that we have this coat made in tiny production runs, all hand cut and hand tailored in England and you have a piece that will have people talking. A coat to be utterly elegant and snug in and a coat that will give many years of enjoyment, thanks to its timeless cut.
THE DESIGN Several narrow panels provide a fitted upper body and then effortlessly skim over the hips and lower body to create an elegant silhouette. Turned back cuffs for a touch of fun and flair (adjustable up or down according to arm length). Beautiful worn either buttoned up or worn open.
THE FABRIC Handwoven Harris tweed, sourced directly from the rugged Outer Hebridean islands just off mainland Scotland. We have selected an earthy tone reminiscent of the colours found in this beautiful part of the world.

Harris tweed is a unique cloth that has been dyed, spun and handwoven in the Outer Hebrides - a small chain of remote and rugged islands just off the western coast of Scotland. It is still handwoven by villagers in their own cottages on traditional manual handlooms, as it has been for hundreds of years.
Harris tweed is protected by a British Act of Parliament. Every 50 metres of cloth has to be certified by an official from the Harris Tweed Authority, to prove that is genuine Harris tweed - only then can it bear the official Orb symbol of the Harris Tweed Authority.
It has been the cloth of choice for well dressed British ladies and gentlemen for centuries and is favoured by British aristocrats, the British royal family, and more recently, top designers and retailers such as Paul Smith and Hugo Boss.
