Tweed Suits

Tweed suits have seen a huge increase in popularity of late as an excellent wedding suit. Famous for its vivid colours, distinctive patterns and associations with British heritage, the cloth has style and class in abundance.

Tweed is extremely robust. It maintains its shape well, hangs beautifully and actually improves with age. When well maintained, men’s tweed suits should last a lifetime.

Men’s Tweed Suits

Tweed originated in the 18th century, created by Scottish weavers who needed a denser cloth to brave the northern wilds. They created an earthy palette with colours to match those found on the heaths of the highlands. Modern tweeds have remained as vibrant and charismatic, but are now available in lighter weights to be worn all year round.

Whether you’re looking for a modern wedding suit or a tweed jacket for weekend attire, our consultants will guide you through the process. We have an extensive range of tweeds on offer, from traditional Harris to modern worsted checks. Each cloth is woven by some of the world’s finest mills.

Our favoured cloth merchant, Holland & Sherry, is located on the banks of the River Tweed in Scotland. Our strong relationship with them and the large volume of orders we place ensure that we enjoy the best prices, which we pass on to our customers.
