Although tweed has become a fashionable fabric in recent times, it was originally used as an outdoor fabric to tailor suits for performance-heavy tasks like shooting and hunting. The two-threaded, Scottish fabric was woven in earthy colors that allowed the hunter to blend into the hunting-specific landscape. Tailors found that even when the tweed was shot through with a bright design, visibility on the hillside remained minimal, leading to the availability of a beautiful range of tweeds. And even though, since those early days, tweed has proved to be a highly versatile fabric, here at Prince of Wales design in light brown. Perfect for a winter suit or an elegant hunting suit, this fabric is both durable and fashionable. Style with a slim fit for a more modern look or with a regular or loose fit for a less formal, “outdoorsy” look. For the record, how did the Prince of Wales check get its name?
