Tweed may have its roots in the Scottish Outer Hebrides but, via route of Royal Appointment, the fabric has become better known as the country gentleman’s attire of choice. Forget country pursuits; the modern man’s tweed throws a downtown twist on Downton Abbey heritage style.
A tweed jacket is one of just a handful of pieces capable of blurring the fine line between classic and contemporary, making it one of the smartest items you’ll ever have in your formal wear wardrobe and a game changer when it comes to dressing for summer weddings. Heavy, hardy tweed isn’t often associated with summer, but when worn with lightweight cream trousers and a white Oxford shirt earthy tan tweed becomes warm weather appropriate. Keep your suit jacket on for the ceremony, removing it to reveal the coordinating waistcoat when the party hits full swing.
