It's the Kildonan;http://www.hunterstweed.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=296I can drop a swatch in the mail if you are in the US. Just PM if interested.
Hunters of Brora (100% new wool) on left, Kevin and Howlin (wool, cashmere, mohair) on right. Both are fantastic, but the Kevin and Howlin is really something else. Looks like a shetland, but is very light and soft..
Some tailors and shoemakers charge higher rates for their overseas visits. Getting hit with the higher rates plus high tariffs is not fun.
I have several pair. Construction and finishing is top notch, as is color matching.
Anyone have 2.5 meters of the solid grey or solid light blue Harrison's anniversary tweed they want to part with? They are all sold out. Alternatively, leads on similar cloth would be highly appreciated. TIA
This is getting a bit out of hand and I am sorry to have even brought any of this up. For the record, I am a supporter of NSM and am happy with what I have received and will continue ordering from them. I would never suggest that they are scamming anyone.

I am going to ask the next time they are in town. If it is a change in standard manufacture, I'll simply shift to another shirt maker.
