SHOP ALL GIFTS: FOR HER | FOR HIM

Last week, we told you a bit about our in-house designers (aka Nordstrom Product Group, or NPG) and the impeccable sportcoats they’ve crafted using authentic Harris Tweed.

This week, we have exclusive photos our NPG friends shot while attending Milano Unica—an international textile fair in Italy where Europe’s most venerated mills convene to show their wares—and Ideabiella, an invite-only show-within-the-show, reserved for the cream of the fine-fabric crop.

Check out the pics below (courtesy of Erica in NPG)—and shop some Nordstrom-exclusive favorites, featuring fine European fabrics, at the bottom of this post.

and cotton-cashmere corduroy sportcoats.
(R): Vitale Barberis Canonico—one of the best. They’ve been around since the 1600s.
