Fall Fabrics: Tweed


Everybody by now must have seen all the great pics of the Tweed Run at NYC hosted by Rugby this past week from Jamie Beck and F.E. Castleberry. I would have gone if it weren't for pesky little things like essays and problem sets, grrr! Tweed is definitely a great material to wear for fall, since it keeps you warm for the cooler weather without adding bulk. You don't have to sacrifice form over function at all since it's so beautiful to look at. Mine is the more standard and traditional kind made with navy and brown wool but there is huge variety from which you can pick and choose from. I found this authentic 70s women's tweed jacket with Jada at a thrift store in Cambridge. Here is a site that I found helpful in satiating my growing appetite for tweed. I hope you liked part one of three of this new mini series, "Fall Fabrics".

Yay! Did you wear it today?
I really love that Autumn Joy Nepenthes site, such a great collection of everything tweed. The prices make me scared though.

That is an incredibly beautiful blazer! I have some tweed shoprts but sadly the button needs to be fixed or else I would be sporting them this instance!

Amelia said...

Beautiful blazer, it looks so versatile!

Tweed Run, so dapper. The town where I went to school (Davis, CA) always held Critical Mass events, but I don't think they ever had a tweed-themed one! Looking forward to the rest of this series. :)
