Fall Essentials: The Tweed Blazer

Fall Essentials: The Tweed Blazer

A true fall menswear essential, a tweed blazer is as versatile as it is stylish. Whether on campus or at the office, a tweed blazer can break up the monotony and add a touch of sartorial sophistication to an otherwise simple look. It’s also an easy way to introduce some great texture into your fall wardrobe. Here’s a dressed up casual look featuring my brown donegal tweed blazer.

Get the Look

Worn as a separate, a tweed blazer can definitely look somewhat collegiate or professorial. Truth be told, during my years in college and grad school, I always lusted after a tweed blazer. As a starving student, I never acquired one—though if I knew about this one, it would have been a no-brainer—but last year I invested in a full custom three-piece tweed suit. It’s one of the most versatile fall garments I own and will definitely be making more than a few appearances on the blog this fall. As I’ve said before, if you’re going to pay to play with custom, be sure to go all out with the custom details. Clothes may not make the man, but great details definitely make his clothes.

A tweed blazer is heavy enough to keep you warm all by itself. However, it’s not so bulky that it can’t be layered with other pieces. A thin sweater works great as does a puffer vest layered underneath or even over the blazer for when the temperature dips just a little more.

    The jacket looks a little big in the shoulders and long in the sleeves, did you custom fit them like that on purpose? If so, care to explain a tweed rookie the reasoning, thanks

    • Thanks for the comment, Dave. I think what you’re seeing in both cases is the messenger bag pulling the jacket off my shoulder a bit. This makes the right sleeve appear a little long in a couple of the photos. I also got roped shoulders so that is adding a little heft that is accentuated by the bag pulling on the jacket.
