Track jackets are sporty. Leather jackets are dangerous. Yellowjackets are annoying. But a tweed jacket? Oh, a tweed jacket is the best jacket of all. Jackets and sport coats in tweed are intriguing–they’ve got a rich texture and a nice weight. Tweed has brilliant connotations: it is the preferred fabric of professors and writers. It adds an intelligent vibe to any outfit that you just don’t get from a slouchy hoodie. Whether worn with matching trousers or thrown over a plaid shirt and jeans, a tweed jacket looks mature, masculine, and put-together. Tweed is a classic fabric that feels thoroughly modern. And in case you couldn’t tell, we’re really excited to see this classic menswear piece make a comeback. [Slim Fit Tweed Jacket, $85, ASOS]

Behold the SMUT Maze t-shirt, brought to you by U.K designer, Sascha Quiambao. Based on a Pac-Man-esque design, the shirt shows a maze, at the center of which is a naked woman with spread legs (get it? Eat your way in…). Is the goal here to infuse the overly-done ’80s trend with a bit of cheekiness by adding sex? Or maybe this is a metaphor for the complexities of the female sexual psyche (highly doubtful). If a man hit on me in this shirt, I’d want to rip it off of him, and not in a good way.
