Tweed is a woollen fabric woven with a soft texture in various structures, most famously in what we call a herringbone pattern. Associated with traditional and durable Irish and British outerwear, the tweed has had long-lasting popularity, thanks to its excellent quality and characteristic look. Today, the tweed suit is still considered a contemporary and elegant choice by many, and has seen particular interest from street-style icons worldwide. Although traditionally a fabric used for work wear, the classic vintage look and beautiful craftsmanship of the tweed has seen it transported into formal wear as well. A perfect option for a day suit, especially in the colder months of the year, with plenty of opportunities to wear the tweed as part of a more casual outfit, for instance when paired with trainers and everyday layers such as a t-shirt or denim shirt. People are also wearing tweed suits for weddings and other formal occasions, and there’s no reason why a tweed suit shouldn’t be considered a versatile outfit base that belongs in the world of smart dressing. Depending on the texture, colour and cut of a tweed suit, it can be more, or less, formal. Slimmer fits in darker, finer textured tweed are excellent options for an alternative take on dressed-up. Of course, wearing tweed for special occasions may be dependent on the dress code at any given event, but if you style your tweed suit correctly, it will be a stand-out suit option. Pair your tweed suit with a crisp white shirt, complementing tie or bow tie and dress shoes in either black or brown — a sophisticated look with an interesting twist of heritage-cool.Certain styles can also handle a pop of bright colour, and one trendy way of adding this type of focal point is to wear loud socks in monochrome block-colours or striking patterns.
