The weight that suits used to be when suits were worn every day and before central heating. This cloth makes up beautifully and benefits from modern finishing to give a soft feel which is still highly durable. A great cloth for trousers if you prefer to wear a lighter weight suit. Harrisons of Edinburgh was founded in 1863 by Sir George Harrison who began his career as an apprentice with an Edinburgh tailor. His first business venture was with a partner, establishing a business of wool drapers, hatters and hosiers in 1838. Twenty five years later he bought out an existing firm of woollen merchants, J & A Ogilvy, changing the name to what is known today as "Harrisons of Edinburgh".
