BROOKS Brothers – whose customers include Hollywood legends and US Presidents – threw open the doors of its Regent Street store last week to showcase the best in Scottish textiles.

In a never-before-seen display, the retailer showed off the wealth of Scottish products on sale – including those created from the wares of island companies Harris Tweed Hebrides and Harris Tweed Textiles.

To mark Harris Tweed’s centenary year, the distinguished Brooks Brothers, nearing its own 200th anniversary, showed off a Harris Tweed-upholstered 1919 Model T Ford, especially created by Ramsay Coachtrimming for the ‘champagne of fabrics’ one-hundredth-year.

Jane McCann, UK general manager at Brooks Brothers, commented: “We are proud to celebrate our long-established relationships with Scottish luxury suppliers through this unique event.

“We welcome the opportunity to showcase the heritage, quality and craftsmanship through our collection sourced from purveyors of fish cashmere, knits and cloth.”
