We look for the best prices for top quality Harris Tweed jackets
Regardless of what you may think, tweed has been making a comeback on the fashion circuit in the past few years. Granted, you may not see much of it on walkways in Paris, but many of the top style icons, Hollywood actors and domestic celebrities have been helping to push tweet to the fore once again.
Renowned for being comfortable, reliable and durable, Harris Tweed is woven by hand on the islands off Scotland, and is one of the few fabrics in the world where the quality is protected by governmental decree.
The techniques may be a little more modern in their creation, but even now the amount of hard work and effort that goes into creating a genuine Harris Tweed jacket means that you'll be getting real value for money, regardless of how much you pay.
Today we have decided to take a look at some of the top retailers who offer the best prices for top quality Harris Tweed jackets. Rather than scraping around in the bargain basement, we are going to be focussing on the mid-range in terms of expense, without ever dropping a below the very highest standard of quality.
www.harristweedscotland.com boast one of the most impressive collections of fine Harris Tweed jackets we have seen online to date. They may not have a huge amount in terms of quantity, but what they have is of the very highest quality, and will ensure that you are getting the very best value for money. Although £300 may not sound cheap, both their Classic and Lightweight Collections are built to last, while ensuring you look as smart and sophisticated as possible.
www.highlandstore.com are slightly cheaper when it comes to their Harris Tweed jackets, but they don't offer quite the same quality or variety of sizes and styles. With just three colour based varieties available in a range of sizes, their jackets cost £169.00 including VAT, and can be ordered directly from their website.
