At the nucleus of every true Englishman’s autumn/winter wardrobe should be a tweed jacket. The traditionally British country staple, uniform of the well-heeled country gentleman and fashion conscious town dweller alike.
This autumn a new breed of tweed has arrived at T.M.Lewin. Joining our ever-evolving Casual Collection comes a brand new range, milled in Scotland and designed exclusively for us. So you simply won’t find the same one anywhere else.
Herringbone or Check, the iconic tweed sports jacket is indisputably ideal outdoor attire for this particular time of year. Best worn on those crisp autumn mornings when it’s not quite cool enough for a heavy duty overcoat, yet a tad too nippy to go fully coatless.
The new T.M.Lewin tweeds showcase the best of traditionally British style, yet are still unmistakably contemporary in design and fit. And they work hard. You can wear one for pretty much any occasion with the right trouser/shirt/knit combo. Perfect with chinos or jeans at the weekend and smart enough for most dress down Fridays at the office.
Personally we’d be tempted to pair them with a classic pair of cords (try our new Felson cords – available exclusively online). And our dark blue denim button cuff casual shirt looks great underneath one, for a more trend-led look.
So if you’re looking for a good wardrobe investment this autumn, consider a quality tweed. It should certainly deliver a worthy sartorial return. Versatility, style and durability in one very wearable jacket.
