I mentioned tweed yesterday and that reminded me that tweed is awesome, as evidenced by this Beams+ Harris Tweed Gore Coat. In technical tweed terms, Harris Tweed is "the shit". It's also "the world's only commercially produced handwoven tweed". The Scottish cloth has been around since the 1830s, its manufacture even enshrined in legislation, via the Harris Tweed Act 1993. So if you have 602 USD, head down to Unionmade and wear some history like the dapper gentleman you've always wanted to pretend to be. I should mention that Beams+ is a Japanese brand, because if you want the best heritage and workwear-inspired garments, you have to go to Japan. I don't know why I'm telling you this. You know this. About 87% of the clothes I write about are made in Japan. Seriously though, "JAPAN IS GOOD" could be the title of almost any post on this blog. Every moment I am not in Tokyo is a complete waste of time.
