The Perfect Tweed Jacket
Tweed is a rugged, water-resistant fabric, made from wool, and originating in Scotland, England, and Ireland. It’s a cloth that is worn casually, most often outdoors, and is most notably associated with country homes and game shooting.
While tweed retains the essence of the English gentleman today, it has evolved considerably and is no longer just a fuzzy material made for hunters. Instead, tweed jackets are being paired with jeans and chinos for more casual-smart looks and have proven to be an autumn and winter fashion staple.
With a large selection of fabrics and countless customisation options available, we can create a tweed jacket for you that is uniquely yours!

On the simpler side of weaves, this style is woven diagonally and doesn’t appear to have a pattern but can be very textured if more than one color is used.
Intricately woven with four threads, this patterns appears v-shaped.
What most people think of when they imagine tweed, a large checked-design is stitched on top of traditional twill in a contrasting colour.
In each case, earthy tones reminiscent of the countryside are customary, but more and more we’re seeing punches of bright colors that help to breathe fresh air into this classic fabric.
Which other items and accessories you pair your tweed jacket with will largely depend on its colour and material. A light colored blazer (grey or tan) can create a subtle, casual look, while a more traditional brown or green textured tweed jacket can add warmth and class to a standard pair of jeans. In any case, tweed is extremely versatile. Tweed jackets can be worn atop tailored shirts, t-shirts and sweaters, meaning neckwear isn’t always required. Dark or light chinos will turn even the most conservative tweed jacket into something appropriate for a weekend stroll and black trousers can dress up an otherwise casual tweed jacket for an evening out.
Regardless of your fabric choice, we want to make sure your jacket fits properly. Our expert tailors will create a blazer that’s made-to-measure. We’ll consider the broadness of your shoulders, the length of your arms, and the size of your waist, creating a jacket that was designed specifically for you. We have options for you to customise the lining of your tweed jacket, the number of buttons on the front, the size and shape of the lapels, pockets, and the vent. Other options are also available.
