The Chinook in Harris Tweed

The Chinook in Harris Tweed

For Himel Bros. customers who prefer a more upscale look, and especially those who need a cool weather jacket for daily wear, David Himel has created the Chinook in Harris Tweed®. Available in two Harris Tweed® colorways, and in waxed British Millerain Oilskin® (for those in rainy climates).

Buttons used will be New Old Stock vintage Canadian buttons, and leather trim is our American Steerhide. Tweed jackets are lined in Pendleton® wool. Oilskin jackets are lined with Japanese-made Troy wool, a perfect reproduction of the blanket liners used in traditional American workwear garments. Hip pockets are functional with leather-trimmed openings, and the hand pockets are perfectly positioned for protection from wind and rain.

Chinook jackets will be made to order by a single artisan in our Toronto workshop, and will be available with a customizable sleeve length for those customers who require it. Full bespoke orders may be available on request.
