Why Choose Tweed?
A tweed suit is the perfect shield against the unpredictable British weather. Tweed is a heavy and warm cloth that has been used for centuries to protect against the wind and rain, on even the bleakest of days.

Tweed has become the winter suiting fabric of choice, not only for its insulating properties, but also for durability. Good quality tweed garments should last their owner at least several decades if looked after properly. Whilst heavy and warm, tweed also retains flexibility, meaning that you can wear your tweet jacket effortlessly and stylishly over a jumper or cardigan. Despite its reputation as a rugged fabric, tweed can also be soft and come in a lighter weight, depending on your preferences.

The History of Tweed
Historically tweed comes from Scotland, where from the 18th century it was made to protect Scotsmen from harsh winters. Traditionally tweed was made from pure virgin wool, shorn from upland breeds of sheep such as Blackface or Cheviot, and usually dyed in earthy colours. In the search for a denser and heavier cloth, Scottish weavers developed the “twill”  – the diagonal line running through the fabric – which is what we recognise as tweed today. Traditionally, tweed patterns would take the colours and patterns from country estates. Nowadays tweeds can be found in a multitude of different patterns inspired by both traditional and modern influences.

How to Wear Tweed
Tweed is the perfect practical men’s fashion choice for the winter months. Durable and weather-proof, it is ideal for countryside pursuits in all conditions. Not only this, but a tweed jacket or suit can also be a stylish urban fashion choice, bringing the traditional country look into the city – ideal for cold winter commutes, Sunday walks, or weekends away. A tweed jacket is an all purpose garment.  It can be worn with trousers of another fabric – such as corduroy – for a casual look. Or why not embrace the complete English gentleman look with a full tweed suit?

What Our Customers Say
frankie benvenuto
This was the first time I had a suit made to measure, I was very impressed with the service of the editsuits, the quality of materials in the suit I ordered was fantastic. The representative that came to my property was very helpful, polite and accommodating and took all my measurements in the first visit. The suit took about 4/5 weeks to me made and was delivered to my office once completed. I had to make a small adjustment to the trousers and they were very happy to make the amendments free of charge. I will definitely order my next suit through editsuits and now that they have my measurements they do not have to measure me again. I will definitely recommend this company to my colleagues.

Recommended by a friend, I visited Editsuits for a wedding suit and shirt. Two of the staff I interacted with were super friendly and helpful, the measuring took an hour and the suit actually arrived a few days earlier than expected. Everything was spot on so I didn't need to have it altered. Given that I paid the same as similar off the peg suits would have cost me (and I did shop around) for a tailored fit I could not recommend them enough.
Raj Virdee
I had a fantastic experience. A vast selection of fabrics, customisation options, and most importantly they actually listened to what I wanted. Couldn't be happier with the finished product. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family.
