Harris Tweed is the original performance fabric and the ‘homecoming' of The Ryder Cup to Gleneagles provides an alluring opportunity for the marriage of these great brands.
The Official 2014 Ryder Cup Harris Tweed was conceived and designed by Ken Kennedy, head of pattern design, at Harris Tweed Hebrides (HTH).
A ‘new blue yarn’ representing the fusion of the Hebridean sky and sea was painstakingly created and 32 options in traditional herringbone were presented to a Ryder Cup committee; RC028 became the official Ryder Cup tweed.
The collection has been created in partnership with Walker Slater and is informed by golfing greats like Walter Hagen and Old Tom Morris but sensitively cut for the dapper gent and elegant lady of the modern era.
Plus fours and flat caps give a swanky edge to the limited edition collection while hip flasks and ties are sure to become collectors items.
The collection has a branded content awareness so logos are minimal or on the inside of bags and garments. The unique pattern and quality of the fabric together with the sustainable heritage it represents will be immediately recognisable on the fairway or the walkway.
