This is the perfect time of year to start dressing up when there is a cold nip in the air. Tweed is the perfect choice for wrapping up this winter, if you have a day at the races coming up or getting married or attending a vintage wedding or just feel like treating yourself to that special bespoke jacket, suit, overcoat or waistcoat.
Tweed is a rough, woollen fabric, of a soft, open, flexible texture, resembling cheviot or homespun, but more closely woven. It is usually woven with a plain weave, twill or herringbone structure. Colour effects in the yarn may be obtained by mixing dyed wool before it is spun.
Tweed is very durable also very water resistant making this a great cloth for the winter months keeping you warm and dry plus very hard wearing and looking very dapper.
When choosing which pattern and colour there are so many options to available our team of tailors will guide you through the many options making this very painless for you. Take a look through some of the options above and below to help.
Above we have a vintage blue herringbone three piece suit a great example with contrasting horn buttons. This is a great look which could be worn as formally or either with a custom pair of chinos or jeans for smart casual.
You can create a great shape & look when using tweed due to the thickness and stiffness of the cloth.
Contrasting tweed waistcoats in either single or double breasted styles are right on trend at present. When going bespoke always finish the look of with the back of your waistcoat made in the matching cloth as this looks so elegant when you have your jacket off.
