As close a definition of classic fabric as it's possible to get, Harris Tweed is enjoying a renaissance of sorts. Why? By virtue of being everywhere, and on everything, that's why.
We're all accustomed to tweed blazers, but with the fabric finding its way onto bags, shoes and gloves it seems the trend has turned up a notch. The garments aren't being produced by the companies you'd expect either, one of the fabric's biggest fans can be found in heritage tennis brand, Fred Perry, who've taken to using tweed on their holdalls.
Even more surprising, Nike recently collaborated with Harris Tweed to produce a pair of tweed-coated high-tops. Not to be worn in the country, or anywhere near mud, these tweedies are better saved for urban adventures.
