    And today it's wet with an 80% chance of further showers and temperatures in the 60's. Unfortunately, I've got to spend the day in the shop trying to get this ^_(*&(* chair I'm building together. Somehow I just don't see sawdust and tweed being a good combo. Maybe this afternoon when I revert to my fly-tying . . .

    And now, this:

    Eggplant purple overplaid on brown tweed, with throat latch, pleated pockets, bi-swing half belted back, working cuff buttons in a 44L.

    This is the sixth Polo MTM tweed now featured in this thread. If you are anywhere near a 44L, and a tweed-fancier, these are plum pickings.

    Just a few of the new Harris Tweed arrivals on the website...

    I am now adding a close up slice of the Harris Tweed to show fabrics better when browsing the website and you can now hover zoom over images in the categories ... let me know what you think and if it makes it easier to browse them?

    Denise : )

    Was not that tweed woven by the crofters on the Isle of Egregious in the inner Hebrides?

    It would be worth a search. That really is a gorgeous piece of material.
