Tweed, Plaid & More

SALE! COZY WOOL COATING UNTIL 12/16-1/1


Tweeds, plaids, stripes, and herringbone have a language of their own. With their nubby texture, natty plaids, and dapper weaves, these wool fabrics are ideal for casual jackets, skirts and trousers. We carry traditional Donegal tweeds, modern graphic tweeds, unusually colored imported tweeds, and more! Plaid is a beautifully classic pattern, and with its subtle variations of line quality and color it can convey an ever-changing mood. From the royal Glen plaid, to graphic buffalo checks, to playful puppy-tooth, our plaid wools will liven up your wardrobe. And herringbone has a distinctive V-shaped weaving pattern, making it the epitome of studious fashion. It is all in how you wear it; a rumpled tweed jacket with suede elbow patches screams fluency in obscure film criticism, yet a pair of light-weight pleated front worsted tweed trousers murmurs relaxed glamour.
