Savile Row tailor Richard Anderson is known for its tweed. And in the Northern hemisphere one of these October days will begin the time for tweed, which makes it a fair topic for discussion I should think. Tweed, that is. Not that Richard Anderson wouldn't also be a worthy topic.
It used to be that one of Anderson's specialties, the tweed overcoat, was considered just the thing for travel but I don't think that applies today. Most travel is between two city pairs, and takes place in heated conveyances. Tweed, on the other hand, is a country fabric and most tweed coats are intended to let the wearer survive an afternoon in the freezing open air. There's a disconnect between tweed and travel overcoats, in my opinion.
No, where tweed fits in perfectly is for odd jackets intended for suburban or rural wear. And the man who is considering one should think about a double breasted version like the jacket in the photo. Flapped pockets, double vents and the classic six button closing make for a handsome coat when the cloth is a nicely checked Cheviot, and it's something that you won't see on every other man on the street.
The DB tweed odd jacket also makes considerably more sense for modern travel than its overcoat relation. Dressy enough for any journey without a meeting at the end of it, the tweed DB is wrinkle resistant as well as warm enough to keep a man comfortable outdoors without an overcoat in anything short of a winter gale.
It's really an excellent choice.
