Tweed jackets or blazers are another one of my favorite go-to winter menswear pieces. Tweed is a rough, moisture resistant fabric that has stood the test of time. It dates back to the 1800’s off the coast of Scotland. It’s safe to say that this fabric is definitely here to stay.
If you’ve been following me long enough, you know that versatility and getting the most out of my clothing is important to me. Tweed can be worn with many different items in your wardrobe. You can easily dress tweed up or down for casual or formal occasions. One way is with a tie, sweater and a pair of fitted chinos. Another great way is paring tweed jackets with thicker, rugby type shirts or sweaters.
On days that it’s not absolutely freezing, and with proper layering, you can even wear tweed jackets in the middle of winter. The herringbone tweed jacket I’m wearing is from Hart Schaffner Marx and it’s as warm as any winter jacket you will find. As far as cold weather fabrics go, tweed is definitely one of the best, and should be a part of any gentlemen’s clothing arsenal.
