AW15: The Season's Tweed

  • Posted on

The go-to fabric of the season for us here at Oliver Brown is undoubtedly tweed. Not only is it an autumn failsafe for town or country and an essential in most gentlemen's wardrobes, but - incidentally - tweed has made a resurgence on the men's catwalks. Not that passing trends have much influence over such a sartorial classic, but we do update our tweed selections every season to offer our customers a style update.   The overcoat is the quintessential tweed purchase for the season ahead, as we previously covered on the blog a couple of weeks back. See the double-breasted tweed overcoat for a classic, time-honoured look or try single-breasted style in one of our new tweeds. Single Breasted Overcoat in Tweed 3Double Breasted Overcoat in Tweed 1 For year-round style, our timeless tweed double-breasted jacket is a customer favourite, and (like all of our tweed) is made from British wool sourced from mills famed for their weaving in Hawick on the Scottish border and West Yorkshire. jacket_tweed_DB_4   Our tweed gilets offer an extra layer of warmth and style - perfect for wearing out in the field. See below for our classic shooting gilets in tweeds three and four, and see the full collection of tweed gilets here.   Men's shooting gilet in tweed 3Men's shooting gilet in tweed 4     For more autumn style inspiration, take a look at our edited country casuals collection, featuring our favourite tweed items and autumn's essential knits.
