In this episode, I talk tweed with Rebecca Hutton, an independent weaver of Harris Tweed on the Isle of Harris on the Hebridean Isles off the coast of Scotland. We talk about the history and social significance of the tweed, what it entails to be an independent weaver and what the future of Harris Tweed looks like.
Garmology is a podcast about menswear, old and new, from a perspective of buying, wearing, collecting, evaluating and appreciating. With regular co-hosts and interesting guests, the aim is to provide a non-fashion view of what men might wear if they knew more about it. Expect plenty of opinions, but pretty much no mention of tailoring or pocket squares. The pod is an offshoot of the WellDressedDad blog, established in early 2013. The reasoning behind adding the pod to the lineup is to allow a different venue for the all-important garment info to become available to garmsmen worldwide.
