A partnership between two-century-old brands has resulted in the perfect tweed capsule for fall. The Stormy Kromer x Harris Tweed line, including caps, accessories and apparel, infusing legendary Scottish refinement with American heritage style.
Stormy Kromer, founded in 1903 as an outdoor apparel company focused on employing hardworking artisans with a flare for classic design, takes a step toward patterns never before seen to the company.
With combined parts passion, purity and practicality, Stormy Kromer’s first cap launched the company into recognition and now the northern Midwest U.S. manufacturer has expanded into apparel and accessories. Its new partnership will fuse Harris Tweed fabrics– the only fabric in the world to be governed by its own Act in Parliament– into some of its heritage designs in a contemporary take that does not abandon the brand’s claim-to-fame aesthetic.
The standout apparel piece in the capsule is the Uptown Vest, $150, with a Harris Tweed front with four-button closure, a single chest pocket and a cotton-canvas back and liner. A number of women’s-specific pieces are included in the new line including a female version of the Button Up Cap, $60, and Companion Purse, $130, featuring antique brass hardware, adjustable shoulder strap, leather accents and Harris Tweed and wax combinations.
The Harris Tweed collaboration is the latest in a series of partnerships initiated by Stormy Kromer, including those with Carhartt, Spacecraft and Steven Alan.
