Kenneth Mackenzie was founded in 1906--three years BEFORE the institution of The Harris Tweed Authority. Since they pre-date the HTA and its "Orb" logo Kenneth Mackenzie often attach labels to their garments that identifies them as being made from Harris Tweed, but which eschews the HTA orb.
This lovely jacket is made from Harris tweed woven in the windswept Kenneth Mackenzie mill--hence the small "KM" Harris tweed label in the back shoulder. (And, just in case there's any doubt about the cloth, this also includes the traditional HTA Orb label on the side!) This is cut as a French-inspired blouson jacket by the English company Peter James (of Yorkshire)--a firm that specializes in traditional tweed clothing for women with a modern stylish twist!
This lovely jacket is cut from a wonderfully supple and lightweight Harris Tweed in a beautiful soft sherbet and cream barleycorn--my pictures don't do this justice at all! (Although the close-ups get the best indication of the colourway.) This has two deep slash pockets on the sides, and a beautifully elegant silhouette. Apart from a very small mark on the lining by the hem this is in absolutely excellent condition.
The original retail would have been c. $500, so this is a bargain at just $49, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA!
