It's TWEED Season!

With the temperature in the shade at 93F, and a dew point of 70F, naturally, thoughts turn to tweed! Not to wear of course, but rather to aid in envisioning a sublime season of crisp breezes, cool dark shade and gentle late afternoon light.

Not necessarily Flanderian recommended, but rather some provocative and thought provoking ensembles featuring lovely tweeds.

Beautiful collection of colors, textures and patterns but an unbuttoned OCBD? Really?
I did not care for the sweater being unbuttoned like that.
I had one like that when I was younger. Not my colors now. Tweed is not really in my closet now but I have wool double and single breasted navy blazers, also one in camel colored wool and I have two linen blazers. Oh, I just remembered my Armani Jeans brand tweed that I got at Goodwill a couple of years ago. I can wear a wool Shetland with that because it is roomy. Nice selection for me. The thing is to go somewhere and wear them.

I was really planning to go easy on the purchases this year but when you spot something you've been looking for, you need to strike. A little show and tell...

I just had this Magee Donegal tweed delivered the other day. First off, I was blown away how the store in Scotland got it to me so quickly! A big thanks to Stewart Christie & Co. in Edinburgh.

My photo doesn't do it justice so here's a photo from their website. Its a beautiful blue that borders on grey/blue to my eye....

The sleeves will be shortened a bit, but otherwise it's one of my best fitting jackets already. I was on the hunt for a Donegal in this color as it brings back fond memories. This is as close as I've seen to a jacket given to me by my parents when I was in my very early teens for a school dance. As I recall, back in the mid-80s, Donegal tweed was pretty popular. At least it was where I lived. You sure don't see it around much these days.
Very interesting. So glad that you are pleased with the fit and those memories.
