Mean Green Tweed Suit 3 Ways

Surprise!!! It’s still cold outside. Granted we’ve been fortunate enough to have one of the warmest winters on record, we still can’t escape the grips of late winter. Recently, I talked about my love of flannel, but, I have to give an affectionate nod to the mighty & always warm Tweed. This post features a green tweed suit from online retailer Frank & Oak.

You’re probably most with familiar tweed in its checked & plaid pattern forms, however; “solid” tweed might be your best foray into wearing the heavy weight fabric. Most tweeds are never really solid because the fabric has flecks of other color. That why I was drawn to this forest green tweed because of the underlying orange & brown tones.

This mix of colors and weft texture makes this suit a favorite to be worn casually. Not sure why or how you can wear a tweed suit? Here’s some helpful tips:

  • If you’re scared of going full suited, break up the pieces. Wear the jacket with dark or light wash blue denim. Throw on a sweatshirt and sneakers with the pants
  • It’s always good to keep one formal element of the suit when dressing it down. Pairing it with a henley? Add a pocket square
  • The sneakers with a suit dilemma. Have fun with the pairing, but, opt for a clean low top sneaker with a silhouette of an Oxford shoe
  • Don’t be afraid to beat this suit up. It’s tweed & it’s durable as hell! It’s the original Gor-tex.

A forest green tweed suit warrants being paired with other rich tones — especially if you’re wearing it to the office. Pairing this suit with a plain white shirt would be too stark of a contrast. The deep blue of the denim shirt & warm orange of the tie help to pull out the lighter tones of the flecking of the tweed fabric.

Mixing like textures is a smart way to diversify a look and stretch your wardrobe. The tan waist coat featured here is a corduroy fabric, which complements the tweed texture of the suit perfectly. There’s one major benefit of pairing a tweed waist coat with a wool suit — you’ll be the MOST warm. On those days during late winter when the temperature is in the mid-50’s during the day then drops to the 40’s later in the evening, you’ll be happy that you’ve pulled this combination together.
