The Stat Sheet: Beams+ Nep Tweed Blazer

  • Najib Benouar

Just when you thought there wasn’t any more room in your closet for another tweed blazer...

We went and dug up this spectacular Nep Tweed Blazer from Beams+.

Oh, and before we forget to mention it: Unionmade’s got it for 40% off as part of the epic Fall-40 sale they launched this morning. Here’s what else you need to know about your newest blazer.

The Story: The near-mythical Japanese label Beams+ was once impossible to find on American shores, until the fine folks at Unionmade began smuggling it (legally) over here for the past few years. Now you’ve got a chance to get ahold of this stuff without a proxy or the full price tag.

Who to Channel: The Scottish countryside; a bookish professor at Cambridge with a penchant for the New York Mets—the “nep weave” intersperses flecks of oranges and blues in the houndstooth; Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry.

When to Wear It: From the moment your shipment arrives till the temps start getting above 50 degrees. And then when fall comes around and the temps start dipping toward 50 degrees and lower again.

Degree of Difficulty: About as hard as it is to slip into a fine tweed blazer.

Some inspiration from Dirty Harry himself...
