We are delighted to finally be able to offer these stunning Harris Tweed waistcoats which match our two latest Harris Tweed trousers. It’s been a long road but well worth the wait.

We wanted Savile Row grade tailoring and raw materials and we wanted the waistcoats to be made in The UK, but after two years trying to find a British manufacturer we had to bite the bullet, accept that the skills we needed were long gone from these shores and get the waistcoats made in Portugal. Seeing the final product we are delighted we did, these are truly superb, even by our high standards

It’s great to find a new product to continue our long association with Harris Tweed, one of Scotland’s most prestigious cloths. Since we first started making leather jackets over 30 years ago we’ve offered Harris Tweed as a lining option.

The story of Harris Tweed is the story of a remote island community that lies between the Highlands of Scotland on the North West tip of Europe and the North Atlantic Ocean.

There is a link to a wonderful short film about the history of the cloth at the foot of this page

For centuries the islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra have woven the magical cloth known the World over as Harris Tweed, or Clo Mhor as it is known in the original Gaelic- 'The big cloth', a stunning and practical cloth made entirely by hand. As the Industrial Revolution reached Scotland, the mainland turned to mechanisation but the Outer Islands retained their traditional processes. Lewis and Harris had long been known for the excellence of the weaving done there, but up to the middle of the nineteenth century; the cloth was produced mainly for home use or for a purely local market.

Today the Islanders stand firm against the mass production and the “values” of a throw away society that threatens all hand crafted products such as Harris Tweed, the original definition of which read “A tweed, hand-spun, hand-woven and dyed by the crofters and cottars in the Outer Hebrides".

Similarly we at Aero will always stand firm against mass production alongside our Highland brethren….Aero and Harris Tweed, a marriage built in tradition and in quality.
