Toast - Three-piece Harris Tweed Suit

Toast with Harris Tweed

Toast has a three-piece Harris Tweed suit available right now, which can also be bought as separates.

The soft tailoring gives a casual feel to the jacket, intended to mould this wonderful indigenous cloth to the body over time. Just make sure your posture's good with soft tailoring. As tweed aficionados will know, Harris Tweed is the moniker for the long-established collective of weavers on Harris.

The lichen/charcoal tweed is a 4oz cloth. The jacket is complemented with corozo buttons and the straight-leg trousers have external brace buttons. The suit is manufactured in Europe.

Toast is country casual with quality materials and earthy, moorland colours. More Gabriel Oak than Sergeant Troy, if we can use a Hardy analogy. A perfect excuse to add a photo still of Alan Bates playing Gabriel Oak in the 1967 film version of Far From the Madding Crowd below. One of Tweedy's all-time favourite novels. I can't believe that's the first reference to Thomas Hardy on these pages. Must make amends.

Toast Made in England

Toast tell us that they are actively sourcing more UK factories and introducing more UK-made goods. They're stocking some of our favourite UK names: Lock and Co, Cheaney, Chapman, Pantherella, Sunspel. Do they read The Tweed Pig?

By way of example, they're stocking Cheaney brogue boots and shoes right now (see the Hythe below). Made in Northampton, England, they'd go a treat with the suit.

The Great Coat (below) is also made in England. This robust winter coat is constructed of a whopping 27oz melton, with horn buttons and a cotton half-lining. The collar can be fastened around the neck when it's particularly parky.
