Tweed waistcoats

It is a well-known fact that a waistcoat is an item of men’s or women’s clothes without sleeves. It is an obligatory element in classic men’s three-piece suit.

Most historians believe that the motherland of waistcoats is England. The first model of this clothing appeared here, at the court of the King Charles II, in order to replace camisoles.

Of course, waistcoats gained their popularity not all at once. Eventually, it became not only a popular but also an obligatory attribute for the upper classes in England. Before wristlets appeared, watches were carried in a waistcoat pocket and their chains were fastened to buttonhole.

How tweed became tweed

In the 18th century tweed was wide spread, therefore waistcoat could be made of that material. It is interesting that until 1830 tweed was called twill. The name was changed accidentally. One of the merchants in London didn’t make out the word “twill”, when he was reading a letter about an unknown to him fabric. He thought it was the word “tweed” derived from the placename, the Scotch River Tweed. The new fabric received a new name that is used until now.

Tweed waistcoat as a sign of aristocratism

As a result of tweed’s wide popularity, the fabric was used for making-up waistcoats everywhere. Elasticity, softness, lightness and a little quantity of pile made tweed waistcoats the most popular purchase. According to Duke of Windsor, his grandfather Edward VII and his father George V preferred tweed waistcoats.

Today these clothes are as popular as centuries ago. The high quality and an immutable aristocratic spirit attract more and more followers. Tweed waistcoats create a stylish look and emphasize love and respect for English traditions.

Besides they will be an excellent present for the nearest and dearest because the waistcoats are easy to wash, they are wrinkle-free and can serve long time. If you want to present somebody some British charm, tweed waistcoats will certainly help you!
