I feel the need … the need for tweed. God, that was awful, I’m sorry. But seriously, with fall weather comes my annual urges to adorn myself with tweed in every incarnation: dresses, pants, skirts, jackets, shoes.

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]

I know I saw a line in there about tweed enjoying a renaissance, and a note about vests, woolen trousers, “henley undershirts,” and dark wool ties gaining popularity again, but frankly I was way too distracted by the accompanying slide show to pay much attention to the actual text. Holy mother of God, you guys, if I didn’t like a tweed and wool plaid vest on a man before, I certainly do now. Eric Brewer, a gallery owner in D.C. who’s organizing a group bike ride in his area where everyone must dress “dandy,” says: “The Victorian era was about a very trim silhouette and form, and I’m seeing tweeds that are cut that way. The thing is, tweed looks very elegant, but it’s a very sturdy fabric, so you can be dapper and still appear manly and rugged.” I’ll say. [via NY Times] Keep reading »
