A popular theory has it that the name tweed is a twist on the Scottish word for “tweel” or twill. Therefore, this is the signature weave of the fabric. It is said that in 1826, a London clerk accidentally transcribed an order to “tweel” and wrote “tweed” instead. As a result, the name came into use.
Tweed is woollen twill cloth usually woven in herringbone, checked, speckled and houndstooth patterns. Firstly, originating in rural Scotland, it is still produced there to this day. The name reflects its original location and its weave, because it is connected to the River Tweed.
1c. Tweed began as hand-woven because the cloth was rough, thick, and felted. The colours were muted and earthy. Moreover, it was truly a working man’s cloth.
The wonderful thing about tweed is it is never just ONE colour.
Hence, our mens tweed ties can be paired with numerous elements from your wardrobe. For instance, one style tip is that you create contrast with the other fabrics in your outfit. As an example, to pair a textured mens tweed tie with a fine/refined tweed fabric jacket.
One of the most recent reasons for the resurgence in the ‘tweed look’ is owing to the TV series ‘The Peaky Blinders’. They were an urban street gang based in Birmingham. They operated from the end of the 19th century until the start of the First World War.
The group grew out of the harsh economic deprivations of working class Britain. Above all, they derived social power from robbery, violence, political influence and the control of gambling. The gang was also highly organised with its own systems of hierarchy.
Members of this gang wore a signature outfit that made them appear distinguished. This stylish look entailed tailored jackets, lapel overcoat, button waistcoats, tweed ties, silk scarves, bell-bottom trousers, leather boots, and peaked flat caps.
