When it comes to staying warm this winter, you can never go wrong with a bit of tweed. Tweed ceases to be an image of old fashioned and is no longer reserved for your history or georgraphy teacher anymore.
The woolen fabric originated in Scotland and Ireland over 200 years ago. Because of its heavy weight, warmth and natural water resistance, tweed was used primarily for outdoor wear making it ideal for farming and roaming the highlands. Tweed was one of the earliest forms of camouflage which allowed hunters to blend into their surrounding landscape.
This wool fabric excels in elegance and exudes sophistication - today various lighter and much softer weaves are available for you to roam the office and city in style, you don't need to be an Irish farmer to pull this look off. Tweed is bringing a classic vintage twist back into men’s fashion today, and boys should take note!
