A popular theory has it that the name tweed is a twist on the Scottish word for “tweel” or twill in our parlance, which 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, and from there the name came into use.
Tweed is woollen twill cloth usually woven in herringbone, checked, speckled and houndstooth patterns. Originating in rural Scotland, it is still produced there to this day. The name reflects its original location and its weave, being connected to the River Tweed and a misreading of tweel, the Scottish form of twill
Tweed began as a hand-woven fabric. The cloth was rough, thick, and felted and the colours were muted and earthy. It was truly a working man’s cloth.
The wonderful thing about tweed is it is never just ONE colour, so our mens tweed ties can be paired with numerous elements from your wardrobe – a real all-rounder.

Another dapper accessory for those wishing to make a statement is a tweed bow tie. It is important to note that bow ties come in many different fabrics, shapes and colours. To make sure you look sharp when styling a bow tie, always keep the bow tie the main focus of the look.
Tweed scarves are a great opportunity to bring colour to a monochrome outfit, plus they have the added bonus of being very practical. Scarves also provide a wide range of style options by simply tying the scarf in a different way, such as the discerning Pretzel Knot.
One of the most recent reasons for the resurgence in the ‘tweed look’ is the TV series ‘The Peaky Blinders’. They were an urban street gang based in Birmingham, England, that operated from the end of the 19th century until the start of First World War. The group, which grew out of the harsh economic deprivations of working class Britain, was composed largely of young unemployed men. They derived social power from robbery, violence, political influence and the control of gambling. Members of this gang wore a signature outfit that included tailored jackets, lapel overcoats, button waistcoats, tweed ties, silk scarves, bell-bottom trousers, leather boots, and peaked flat caps. The gang was highly organised with its own systems of hierarchy.
