Harris Tweed Shooting Suit

Tailor’s Notes
Henry Herbert Tailors were privileged to make this Harris Tweed shooting suit for a gentleman in the south west of England. The fabric is heavy, but magnificent, and we were delighted to make a tailored waistcoat and sailor’s tab collar on the jacket for those cold shooting days.

The Construction
The customer bought the cloth directly from the weaver in the Outer Hebrides. He returned to London and presented us with the cloth and asked us to make a three piece shooting suit for him, with matching trousers too. After eight weeks and various fittings, the ensemble was finished.

Details
A heavy and waterproof tweed, robust enough to endure cold days of stalking and keep his master warm.
