In which G.M. Norton enters a tweed utopia.
Northern types, I bring good news! After more than 175 years of trading in London, Cordings of Piccadilly now have a second store, in the historic Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate. What's more, your favourite protagonist was there to witness the second coming by attending their opening evening.
The store is a visual delight, with tweed at every turn. They really do stock everything for one’s country wardrobe (along with some charming city suits too).
I had enormous fun and met some terribly good eggs. Guests were generously presented with goodie bags on their departure.
