Now that our wardrobe is firmly in winter mode, we’re donning some variety of tweed on a near-daily basis. It’s some of the most versatile stuff in our closet. So to celebrate the season of tweed, we’ve put together a quick photoset of the fabric at its best. Take notes, gentlemen.
Normally, we’d dress this up by talking about the glove-based considerations in play, and how you’ll need different gloves for different occasions—but this is basically it. Leather on the outside, cashmere on the inside: that’s pretty much everything.
And since you timed it with a sale, you can pick them up for under $50.
Skimming through the latest batch of Land’s End Canvas gear, we came across this green button-down and heather hoodie combination. It’s practically the opposite pole of the menswear spectrum, but it’s the same effect as the colorful belts you see circulating at Pitti Uomo.
Just a reminder: you don’t have to be an Italian dandy to pull off a pop of color.
