Sale price$1,495.00
Shape: Custom Sportcoat
Material: Gallowglas 19oz Irish Tweed

Woven in Ireland by Kerry Woolen Mills (est 1760!) the Gallowglas tweed is named after Gaelic mercenary warriors who wore distinctive chainmail armor in battle. This heavyweight 18oz pure woolen recalls the texture of that armor with a variegated mixture of undyed and charcoal yarns. The cloth has a distinctive and randomized mix of bars and dots that looks incredible in person. It has a soft hand and a thick consistency that stands up to cold winds and will endure for decades. 

Woven in Scotland, the Iron Forest Tweed is a gorgeous mix of 65% wool and 35% alpaca. We've offered it for the past few years, and we're down to our last available stock in this brilliant fabric. The base tone is a greycast olive, and a subtle bottle green and maroon check pattern runs throughout. The alpaca gives a soft and and a extra degree of warmth to this mid-weight 14oz fabric.
