Enduring Classic

The Tweed Vest

  • Just like a blazer or jacket, leave the bottom button of your vest undone.

Tweed can be tricky. It can be hard to pull off, and at times (like early fall), it can feel a bit too much like outerwear when sported inside. Which is why a tweed waistcoat offers an easy solution. It's a way to bring a bit of rustic, autumnal charm and add a nice layer of texture to a regular shirt and tie, without taking over the whole look. And as the temperature dips, they look great under outerwear—from a blazer or top coat to a leather or denim jacket. And thankfully, there are plenty of options this season. L.L. Bean has an impressively priced shetland wool vest in a handsome herringbone and Rugby offers a smart looking style with dual chest pockets in an English windowpane plaid.
