QUINTESSENTIALLY BRITISH: THE TWEED JACKET

Cordings is synonymous with British country clothing, and there is nothing more quintessentially English than a tweed jacket.

Cordings introduced its first range of tweed jackets in the 1920’s, to complement its range of outerwear and boots. The style of the three button jacket has changed little since this date, and Cordings has strived over the years to retain the elegant, fitted silhouette that is synonymous with British tailoring.

Nearly 100 years later, Cordings still works with British and Irish mills which helped define the collection. Harris Tweed, Shetland, Donegal and Keepers Tweed are always present. Cordings signature House Check , developed 30 years ago, is one of five ‘core' shooting tweeds that are always offered year in a complete range of styles, from breeks to shooting waistcoats caps and field coats, creating versatile and practical shooting suits. Rugged, weather resistant and warm, tweed is the king of country fabrics and, designed to blend harmoniously with the landscape, is the perfect choice for the gentleman engaged in country pursuits.

The Cordings range always includes at least two Harris Tweed cloths, and this is the only fabric produced in commercial quantities using traditional methods anywhere in the world. Each thread contains myriad colours, which weave together to create a cloth of immense depth and complexity. Tactile, warm, soft, breathable, adaptable, and reflecting all the glorious, subtle shades of our British landscape, today’s sophisticated tweed is a far cry from the old image of the dour, scratchy fabric sported by gouty country gents. Perfected through the decades, a Cordings tweed jacket is a thing of beauty; just the thing for today’s stylish country gentleman to hand down through the generations.

Cordings tweed is perfect in the country; on a days shooting, at Cheltenham Festival or as a smart alternative to a suit in town. Our core tweeds are available in matching items, including plus twos, shooting waistcoats and caps.
