SOLD! Vintage Harris Tweed, Made In England for H.A. & E. Smith of Bermuda! c.38.

SOLD! Vintage Harris Tweed, Made In England for H.A. & E. Smith of Bermuda! c.38.

H.A. & E. Smith was established on Bermuda in 1889. Together with Trimingham's and The English Sports Shop it was the third main upscale clothing store on Bermuda, boasting at one time that it had the widest selection of cashmere sweaters anywhere in the Western hemisphere.

Smith's closed in 2001, but you can still find examples of its wares that show clearly why it so famous for the quality of its clothing--and this Harris Tweed jacket is one example.

Made in England for Smith's, this jacket is cut from an absolutely beautiful and extremely rare bold plaid Harris Tweed in a wonderful medly of autumnal brackens, russets, chestnut browns and dark moss green. Cut as a contemporary two button front jacket it has subtle darts and the utterly correct and traditional British single button cuff. The buttons are, of course, metal shanked and leather covered football buttons. This has a single center vent, is fully canvassed, and fully lined. It also carries the classic 1960s label announcing that this is "All Wool" and "Made in England" , as well as the classic Harris Tweed orb label and a wonderful vintage Smith's label.

I'm conservative in rating vintage items, so this is in very Good condition--and is absolutely beautiful!

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at reduced cost.
