What is Tweed?
Years ago, a London merchant received a letter from the Hawick firm. He then misread the Scottish word “Tweel” as “Tweed”and this,one misinterpretation of word led to the origin of Tweed.
So, Tweed is a thick, soft and flexible woolen fabric and has an unfinished surface. It is generally dyed in two colors. The sturdy, hard-wearing, warm, water –resistant and durable quality makes the tweed fabric, a perfect outerwear for fall and winter.
Usually, looked upon as an old-fashioned and conservative style. You cannot deny that Tweed is also practical, smart and stylish. It is a symbol of royalty and aristocracy. And when it is the Fall/Autumn or winter season, the time for layering, tweed is just the right choice. A Tweed Jacket, tweed blazer, tweed trouser or a tweed coat, you have a plethora of options to choose from.

A Tweed Jacket paired up with a roll neck and jeans for the casual look.Or with a shirt and chinos. A patterned Tweed Blazer with a plain waistcoat (not necessarily of the same material) and trousers for the almost formal look.
