Bring out the tweed

I know it’s still pretty warm in the UK but after a bit of a chill in the air yesterday I decided to bring back the tweed as I’ve missed wearing waistcoats and a heavy fabric. I just wished that I had known it was going to be 26 degrees today before I put it on. Note to self: check forecast before donning tweed!

This is a three piece suit and I was tempted to wear all three pieces but I’m bloody glad that I didn’t now as all I’d be doing would be carrying it around like an accessory!  Speaking of accessories, today’s included my favorite vintage watch and this amazing vintage briefcase that I picked up at a vintage fair last year.

The bow tie is also vintage and I think that all the accessories when added to this suit go to make a very heritage look, very British and very me.
