John W. Nordstrom x Harris Tweed

You already knew we carry some of the best brands known to man. But did you know our own, in-house labels are world-class as well?

Nordstrom Product Group (NPG) is a division of product designers and specialists responsible for researching and developing key items each season for Nordstrom-exclusive brands (like John W. Nordstrom, 1901 and Calibrate, to name a few).

With a focus on high quality and incredible value, the NPG team receives no special treatment from our product buyers, who visit the NPG showroom and buy into each season’s offering—or don’t—just as they would any other outside vendor.

It recently came to our attention that the highly competitive folks at NPG work with some of the most elite mills and firmly established fabric authorities in the world. The latest example? Their John W. Nordstrom sportcoats made with authentic Harris Tweed.

A pretty remarkable value (considering the quality of this time-tested fabric) at just $395, these coats are a wardrobe staple that will serve you well at work as well as on the weekend. The two herringbone variations—black/white and brown multi—can be seen above.

Here, our Men’s Sportswear Design Director, John (left), and Clothing Brand Manager, Tom, demonstrate the coats’ classic fit and impeccable details.

 

Want to know more about the centuries-old practice of hand-weaving this legendary Scottish fabric? Watch this charmingly narrated (speaking of brogues) video, courtesy of Harris Tweed, and visit the official Harris Tweed Authority.

Great sportcoat and the “models” certainly wear it well! Love the blog too.

I, too, love the tweed sportscoat. The models aren’t too bad either!
