Hi, everyone. Now that the calendar has turned to fall and much of the nation is experiencing some chilly weather, I thought it would be nice to start a fun Harris Tweed thread. Show us your favorite HT items: jackets, suits, hats, ties, scarves...anything that sports the Orb logo. Vintage and well-loved or brand spanking new--it's all welcome here.

I'm excited to get this thread going by posting this beauty today that I thrifted today. The colors jumped out at me from the stuffed clothing rack in the store. Although it's hard to capture the colors via my iPhone, I'd say it has an overall coffee color with a subtle herringbone pattern; navy, purple, orange and green striping; and red and green flecks. It should be a very versatile jacket--and it fits perfectly to boot. Interior label says "Campus Mens Shop, Birmingham, Grosse Pointe." I think it may have come from the old Jacobson's department store chain, which was based in Michigan.

Looking forward to seeing what others would like to share.

I paid thrift store prices this Harris tweed coat at a Jos. A. Banks outlet years ago, and have loved wearing it more than anything else I own ever since:

Looks great, alric. Any chance you have additional photos of this item to post?

This is great! Can you tell us about the case on the left and where you obtained these Harris Tweed items? Are they all custom-made?

Here is one of my old favorites. It is a Harris Tweed that I've never seen anywhere else. Unfortunately, it's now too big for me and I'm selling it off. :(

I saw your listings in the Trad Thrift Exchange. Wish they were a bit smaller. :(

Did you buy that from me? Super thick, made by orvis if I recall?
In any case, I had one at one time. Stunning!

I don't think I bought it from you. This one predates my membership on the forum. It is indeed from Orvis. If I recall correctly, it was made by Hardwick, although at the time, I didn't know who Hardwick were.

There have been some NICE jackets pictured here lately. Ensiferous is right about the addictive qualities of HT.

I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a really dark charcoal herringbone HT jacket. All the better if it's vintage, has a three-button front, throat latch, and patch pockets (yeah, I know, asking for the moon). Something along the lines of the photo below (in terms of the color--some flecks would also be nice). I'm all ears if anyone happens to have be looking to sell something like this in a 40R.
