Wear Tweed

It's turned chilly at last make the most of it winter is the time for creative dressers to go tweed hunting -big trousers (must be lined), traditional single breasted two vent jackets jackets, coats, bags, owls, deerstalkers they 're all out there. Proper Harris Tweed (with the orb symbol) is what you really want, hand woven in the Outer Hebrides. It's got to be wool no synthetic mixes. The traditional tweed we like best is a bit rough and scratchy and the colours are mossy and Autumnal. There's a lot of fake rubbish on the high st. at the moment, not a good investment but no worries if you can't run to brand new, secondhand is as good or even better.
