Shetland Tweed Jacket
We often say this - and we'll say it again now.....we absolutely love garments that sit at the intersection between classic elegance and rugged. This beautiful jacket has all those credentials. Taking inspiration from classic hunting jackets, and made in a stunning Shetland wool tweed, this jacket will look amazing when paired with quality denim and sturdy boots. Throw on a denim shirt underneath and it's a match made in heaven.
For those that don't yet know - wool from the Shetland Isles in Scotland is one of the most hard-wearing wools out there. Those sheep on the Shetland Isles eat bad weather for breakfast, then ask for more. As a result, they grow a hardy wool that resists the worst of Scottish weather. In the end you have a wool garment that is sturdy and resilient. Compared to many Shetland wools, this one has a relatively soft hand - it's not soft and silky to the touch - Shetland never is - but this one still has a pleasant hand that is surprisingly pleasant next to the skin. The sleeves are also lined on the inside, making it much easier put on and take off, and more conformable if you wish to wear just a t-shirt underneath.
Featuring two large front hip pockets, a hidden pocket / compartment in the chest area, and a high buttoned collar that allows you to wear the jacket with either the collar up, or down, giving two very different styling looks.
