Mens Fashion Trend - Tweed Clothing

When one thinks of Tweed, an image of the aged or that of an ancient teacher suddenly pops into our heads. It’s just not conceivable to think that this stale fabric would ever be seen as fashionable and stylish and used by designers in the latest catwalk collections. Well think again, tweed is finally becomingly increasingly popular and sharp, as must have texture for every wardrobe that you just wouldn’t want to miss out on.

This Autumn and Winter 2009 season is showing a rise of tweed within the design houses, Savile Row tailors and the most popular designers all using tweed in their latest collections and in store ranges. There is history cemented deep within this fabric, proudly British and rooted deep with history and heritage, it is the original British workwear. It was worn by all in the past, from the lowliest labourers to the highest land owner.

The idea behind tweed is to give the wearer a sense of authenticity, proud and educated. The perfect gentleman so to speak.

Men’s fashion is essentially going back to its country roots, first with the return of the brogue style shoe and then the introduction of quilting into various product ranges. Tweed will easily be able to fit in with the traditional British country look for this Autumn and Winter season. One could easily slip on a decent pair of black brogues and have them easily interact with a pair of dark tweed trousers.

Traditionally worn as a suit, designers and brands are taking its texture and placing it as a single item in their product ranges. Designers such as Westwood, Prada, Margaret Howel and Deryl Walker have all used it for their own collections. There is also sign that tweed is here to stay as the maestro himself, Karl Lagerfeld, has used it for the new Chanel ready to wear collections for Spring and Summer 2010.

Now tweed is not as hard to wear as many people think. Ideally suited for both dark and light shades of colour, a tweed jacket can be easily worn with either cream or beige coloured trousers and possibly a turtle neck top. Tweed trousers however would be very well complemented with the wearer having a black roll up shirt on the torso and some black buckle boots.

So if you are looking for a way to stand out this party season, look no further than the latest tweed collections. A simple waistcoat or blazer will complement jeans or trousers perfectly, whilst giving you that all important texture and statement piece to the outfit. You do not need to go out head to toe in tweed, the trend works best when used subtly. Use the catwalk pictures below for inspiration and take a look at some of the best tweed pieces we have found from around the web. The perfect addition to your wardrobe.

‘And they that know the winters of that country know them to be sharp and violent, and subject to cruel and fierce storms’ (William Bradford 1590-1657)
