With the (relatively) recent introduction of our new website, Harrisons are now kicking and screaming in to the 21st Century with the launch of the Official Harrisons Forum and the creation of the Harrisons Twitter account!!
Currently in its early development, you will find the Harrisons Forum at www.harrisonsofedinburgh.proboards.com. This is your chance to make comments about Harrisons, the world of cloth, and anything else that you may feel worthy! Interact with Harrisons and others in the tailoring world. We look forward to seeing your comments, questions and suggestions, and we will try to respond to as many posts as possible.
Much to Mark’s delight, Harrisons are now Twittering!! Please join in the revolution and follow us at @Harrisons1863 You will see the most up to date comings and goings at Harrisons, and, with tweets already coming in from across the world, your input will be greatly appreciated!! Happy Tweeting!!

The first batch of H Lessers Lumbs Golden Bale have just arrived, and we're very pleased to report they look amazing!!
After the pieces are carefully inspected, we start the cutting of all the lengths required to make bunches in time for September.
Hard work but it will be worth it to have the chance to refresh such an iconic range. And as you can see from the picture below it looks great!!

This Autumn Harrisons will be re-issuing Moonbeam with 43 patterns in all, which includes 18 new, never seen before, lines. Moonbeam, unlike any of our other collections, is an Urban Tweed, soft to the touch and warm to wear.
The collection will consist of what we see as up-to-date designs taken from around the world and, as with all Harrisons Ranges, we have taken not only our views forward, but also yours, when selecting this range.

As many of you know I have not been well these past 6 months having developed a small brain tumour. I am undergoing radio and chemo therapy and hopefully will be back full time in business in the autumn.
Thanks to everyone who has been in touch, I have been very heartened by your good wishes and cards.

We are delighted to announce some great news for those lovers of Lumb's Golden Bale. H.Lesser has just commissioned 73 brand new designs across 4 qualities for a new bunch to be launched this autumn. We have included a few pictures from the blankets - The sharp eyed ones amongst you will have noticed some Worsted Flannels In fact, it's not just the Flannels that will be making a welcome return, we have managed to recreate a 13oz LGB, which had been very hard to produce in the past. We have included a large selection of the 7-8 ozs Tropicals, and the 11-12 ozs, which form the majority of the bunch. However you won’t be seeing the cloth until September, such superior cloth does take time to produce, from the sourcing and spinning to the weaving and finishing – the result gives Lumb’s the hallmark of luxury, quality & exclusivity.
