There is no need to use too much details but without them any, even the most marvellous, costume won’t make a proper impression. Hats, ties, bags... Tweed revolution hasn’t steered clear of all these important little things.
Tweed accessories — today’s classic
It’s more than likely that the most famous tweed accessories are tweed caps. Peaky cap of peculiar shape and, maybe, with tied-up earlaps, sole-coloured, checked or with houndstooth pattern. For some reason we recall of a pipe and a raincoat... Have you recognised? Of course, it’s the famous master of deductive method, the genial detective who lived in the Baker Street and wore English classic – tweed cap. Dr. Watson also liked walking in the Baskerville mires in a comfortable tweed cap. Apart from Conan Doyle’s characters this warm accessory was in demand by London dandies and hunters, horsemen and cyclists. The sensational Tweed Run gathered a lot of fashion-mongers in caps all over the world!
Do you think you’re a real English gentleman? Then you need a tweed tie, sir. This simple accessory, which is habitual and even casual for the majority of people, can be the very detail, which is necessary in your image. Tweed tie holds the shape perfectly, matches with almost any suit and gives you charm of British dandy. Even if you don’t like retro much and aren’t a vehement follower of traditions of the Misty Albion, you will definitely like warm colourings and nice on the touch material. Besides, these ties, as well as all tweed accessories, are of high quality.
