Simon Carter - Harris Tweed Gloves
Tweed Underwear Anyone?
If you so desire, you could wear tweed from head to toe and decorate your house in the stuff too. We've reported on Harrington jackets made of it, desert boots, even wash bags from our very dear friends at An English Hand.
I don't think we've covered tweed gloves. But Simon Carter has some and bags too - in Harris Tweed no less.
We may have to wait a while to feature tweed underwear though. (Can it be done?)
About Simon Carter
Simon Carter started his menswear and accessories business 27 years ago by selling pewter brooches in the King's Road, London. Today you'll find his eponymous shops in some of the nicest streets of London (Shepherd Market, Lamb's Conduit and Westow) and in Buckinghamshire (Great Missenden, Wendover). The products are also stocked in some of our favourite shops in the capital, including Liberty and Fortnum and Mason.
The aim of the company is to appeal to those with a "British taste for inventive, understated chic".
Harris Tweed Gloves
The first Harris Tweed gloves came out last year as part of the centenary celebration of the cloth. The gloves are teamed with soft nappa leather in two colours. They are lined in a warm and soft cashmere and wool blend.
Harris Tweed Bags
Carter also produce bags in leather and tweed. The Rye satchel in khaki canvas and black leather is finished with tweed in charcoal or green.
