Scottish textiles are in the US spotlight this week as New York stores, Brooks Brothers and Saks held special promotions featuring tartans, tweeds and cashmere.

The events were organised in collaboration with Scottish Development International and celebrated both stores as leading customers of Scotland's finest textile producers.

Saks held an event where its very own Saks Fifth Avenue Tartan was unveiled. Guests also had the chance to meet Edinburgh based tailor Peter Johnston, who has been taken on board to head its custom made programme.

Brooks Brothers hosted a 'Highland Fling' at its Madison Avenue store where a selection of its autumn collection featuring Harris Tweeds was showcased alongside other Scottish-made products.

Donald Martin, Chairman of the Harris Tweed Authority attended the evening in person so he could thank Brooks Brothers for being a loyal customer. He presented Chairman & CEO of Brooks Brothers, Claudio Del Vecchio with a special Harris Tweed Centenary Year Heritage Award.

Claudio Del Vecchio said:
“Brooks Brothers has a long standing tradition of offering our customers the finest Scottish textiles. We proudly celebrate generations of collaboration, quality and value.”

More than 300 VIP guests enjoyed a glass of Scotland's finest malt whiskies and Steve North, Director of Instruction at St. Andrews Links golf course, was on hand to give guests tips on their swing in a state-of-the-art, full-scale indoor PGA Tour golf simulator.

Established in 1818, Brooks Brothers is America's oldest apparel retailer and has a history of working with many Scottish knitwear and fabric mills including:

• Robert Noble
• Barrie
• Hawick Knitwear
• Reid & Taylor
• Harris Tweed
• Todd & Duncan

• Begg Scotland

Danny Cusick, President, Americas, of Scottish Development International said:

“Brooks Brothers is one of more than 200 leading retailers and fashion labels that come to Scotland season after season to develop new textile products and work closely with Scottish mills to enhance their brands.”
