As part of the Black project Arco jacket release with C’H’C’M & Harris Tweed we decided to shoot a film in Glasgow with Brian Sweeney who has worked with the brand for many years.
Brian was also instrumental in introducing Mike Donald from http://thecroft.wordpress.com/ and in turn Mark Hogarth from Harris Tweed to Six Eight Seven Six.
These connections were formative in our understanding that we as a label could work with such a traditional supplier and that we could create a unique garment that still felt like a 6876 item.
New York & Glasgow: Two cities built on a grid system,both with a stand alone uniqueness and to this day when i visit Glasgow it always strikes me as a city yearning to the west and beyond.
C’H’C’M & Six Eight Seven Six have worked together to revamp the 2007 Arco jacket from its original form as cotton garment dyed style into a luxury Harris tweed jacket.
Manufactured in our London factory to the highest possible spec utilizing custom woven 100% pure new wool;which is dyed, spun and woven by hand in the Outer Hebrides.The tweed features a herringbone pattern and the garment is half lined with MOD issue lining.
Trim features include Ri Ri zips and buttons specially commissioned in Italy
The jacket has co-branding as well as the signature Harris Tweed orb label.

Interpretation of a classic 6876 sweat,utilizing the original “freedom” raglan sleeve and loop back cotton fabric whilst constructing using the methods perfected on the Good Measure M-21.
