Landau Princeton is proud to be among a handful of shops in the United States offering authentic Harris Tweed jackets, woven in four different go-with-anything cloths (each Tweed contains up to 20 different colors).
Renowned for its quality, warmth, and durability, Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world governed by an act of Parliament. The Harris Tweed Authority monitors all production. Every 50 meters of fabric is inspected and stamped, by hand, with the ORB found in every genuine Harris Tweed garment. Every jacket contains a reference number, which traces the jacket fabric back to the original crofter, and every jacket comes with real leather buttons and a mahogany hanger.
Harris Tweed was born in 1846 on the remote Scottish Isle of Harris. The original fabric was like no other; dyed, spun, woven, and finished by hand. Since then the crofters of the Western Isles of Scotland have woven this magical cloth (in Gaelic, “The Big Cloth”) in their homes.
Available in men’s sizes 38 short through 50 long and originally $750, they are now available for the Landau Holiday Special price of $399. Give a gift that will keep giving for the next 30 years, a real Harris Tweed!
