If you are fully embracing the British heritage look this year, then a tweed jacket should almost certainly be part of your wardrobe. As has recently been pointed out on FashionBeans, it is a true winter essential for the contemporary gent.
This Dubarry Gorse Tweed Jacket is a modern classic, inspired by the traditional country fashions of Ireland’s west coast. And while not all of us may have to battle the elements to quite the same degree, the Teflon coating provides the ultimate protection of its pure wool fabric against the damaging effects of rain, sleet and snow.
Although designed to grace the backs of countrymen, this piece would look equally as stylish in the Oxford countryside as it does walking down London’s Oxford Street.
The look of the jacket – which features a notched lapel, 3-button fastening, breast pocket, double vented hem and 4 kissing buttons on each cuff – is classically heritage. However, the slimmer fit allows it to work as a contemporary piece alongside your jeans and chinos collection, providing the footwear is kept to the right side of formal.
The Dubarry Gorse Tweed Jacket is available from the Harrods website now, priced at £399.
