Tweed in the summer? I know what your thinking… That jackass who writes The Fine Young Gentleman has lost it. Perhaps.
But, I am one of those people who believe that tweed can be worn year round. The weather and tweed itself have to be just right for it to work in summer and spring, however. I think the light gray of this jacket lends itself to usage on cool spring/summer nights as well as overcast days like today (it is 55, cloudy and raining).
The jacket itself looks to be something out of the heyday of Tommy Nutter with its oversized lapels and pockets, I actually thrifted it for $3 (yes, I do actually go shopping at thrift shops, but more on that later). Its a rather fun looking jacket, and fun it will hopefully lead me to. So there you have it, tweed for the summer indeed.
