Nightly Tweed

Follow Me:

Tweed will always be essential in my wardrobe no matter what the season may be. It will obviously be more commonly worn in the fall/winter but there are also great ways to work them into the spring/summer. Tweed is capable of giving you that turned down vintage look but still remain very much Presentable, classy, and well put together

Tweed is an unfinished wool fabric, of a soft, open flexible texture that takes a resemblance favoring cheviot or homespun. Heather mixtures and Green Harris effects are what really gives the tweed blazer the unfinished look. This is achieved by twisting together to different colored woollen strands into a two – three ply yarn. I find it a tad difficult to find authentic durable tweed blazers/jackets throughout your everyday shopping mall or department store. I say your best bet to find a tweed jacket that will hold up and last you for a good while would certainly be in a thrift shop or any vintage boutiques.

I find that just like electronics a lot of garments just aren't built to last very long anymore. and the last thing I would want to do is spend $200 - $350 on something that will not last me at least 2 cycles (1 cycle = 4seasons). Thrift shops are a place where you can find great items that you know will most likely that will last you for the fact that the make of the garment was much more sophisticated. I will also posting up a guide to thrift shopping in my upcoming posts. Despite the fact that tweed was originally used for hunting, fishing, and other lively outdoor activities. Tweed will always find a way to make its way back into the sense of style/fashion.

A great piece of footwear. The Desert Boot Clarks are an amazing form fitting, comfortable and foot friendly shoe really set the bar for many shoe designs. Clark Shoes, always kept their eyes out for the future, they would practice technological research that led them to discover polyurethane as a soiling material. It is lightweight and indestructible. Clark shoes will always be a classy, durable, respectable, and one of a kind shoe.
