When we think of tweed, most of us think of mountains in Scotland, shooting estates and boring green and brown heavy, itchy cloth. This is a far cry from the latest Sherry Tweed range from Holland & Sherry available through our Suit the Country brand.
We wanted to take a new look at these traditional cloths – tweed has many benefits, it is versatile, warm, yet breathable, moulds itself to your body and lasts a lifetime. You can wear it in the snow and the rain with layers underneath or throw it on over a light jumper or shirt for the journey to work in your office.
Sherry Tweed originates from the Scottish Borders, where the pure, clear waters of the river Tweed are perfect for finishing the cloth, making it soft to the touch. The blending of up to six different coloured yarns when weaving the cloth means that there is a depth of colour and texture giving our finished garments a contemporary look, whilst retaining the benefits of traditional tweed.
Our jackets are made-to-measure, to your specifications, with all the bespoke details that you expect from us, designs can be dressed down with jeans at the weekend or thrown on with chinos or smart trousers as a warm and comfortable, yet fashionable top layer.
