A classic, do-anything vest in a HARRIS TWEED collaboration with the folks who gave us William Wallace, the Loch Ness Monster, and golf. Wear it to battle, to investigate life's mysteries or, you know, to golf. Brushed cotton canvas back and lining with a four-button front.
I discovered SK a couple years ago after being a longtime Filson customer. I have purchased several hats and a waxed vest with plaid lining - all of these have been great, and this new vest is no exception. The quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. I especially like that these products are all made in the United States! The fit is true - I got M and it fits and feels great (but if you think you’re in between sizes I would suggest ordering up since there’s not much extra room on this vest). The Harris Tweed looks even better in person than in the picture. Stitching is perfect. Looks great with both jeans and nicer pants. Again, extremely well made and worth the money. If you like Filson you’ll really appreciate the quality - and value! - of SK. Will continue to be a repeat customer. Paul L., Chatham, NH
I get compliments wherever I wear it, though my wife has to caution me about wearing plaid shirts under the tweed!! ;-) Still trying to break it in so I don't look quite so "dressed up." Then again, maybe that's why it's the Uptown Vest. Duh... What would you expect from a Presque Isle county troll.
The vest fits well and I look forward to wearing it in the fall and winter. However the color is not close to the Luxmore represented on the website. That is a disappointment. ~~ Sorry to read you're not happy with the color. Computer and smartphone screens are all calibrated differently, so the color can look different on all devices. You can always return the vest within 90 days if you are not happy with it. SK ~~
Ordered the LG first, based on my previous Kromer vests and coats, which were 42, and the Kromer size chart indicates 41-44 is large. But the LG Tweed vest wouldn’t go around my chest; the XL, however, fits great. It looks fantastic and get lots of positive comments. Classy.
my wife thinks I am hot with this vest on...
It is very smart looking-- Everything quality-- first class-Being a Yooper I try to buy everything I can thats made in the UP. Arrived with in two days of placing the order . Great Service for a Great Product tks Randy
