The Country Winter Look

Winter is in full swing and if you haven’t already upgraded your wardrobe there’s still time. Adding thicker and more insulating materials to your outfit is one way to keep you warm but one material that should be a focal point of every man’s wardrobe during the chilly months is tweed.

Tweed originated in Scotland in the 18th Century when Scottish weavers wanted to create a denser and fuller cloth. It is made with an unfinished woollen fabric and is known as a hard wearing material. Generally it is used as informal outerwear and for 200 years tweed has kept men both warm and stylish in the form of suits, coats, trousers and more.

Here at Suit Direct we’ve put together our selection of key items for a Winter Country Look.

The Jacket:

Adding a tweed jacket to your outfit is an easy way to add a country twist to your current wardrobe and instantly elevates your style. Pair with jeans or chinos, a plain shirt and finish this outfit off with brown boots or brogues.

You could even swap out the Racing Green Olive Tweed Jacket with the matching Waistcoat if you want to go further with the country look.


The Trousers

Donegal men’s trousers keep you warm and are extremely comfortable to wear, perfect if you’re tired of wearing the same jeans or chinos. Easy to pair with a matching jacket and knitwear. Add a pair of brogue boots to finish off the outfit.



The Finishing Touches

The country look isn’t all about Tweed jackets and Donegal trousers. You can add elements of the country to your outfit with a Donegal hat or with a pair of mens brogues.


Tweed is not only essential for a country look it’s also a winter staple and has helped people brave the elements for 200 years. It’s comfortable to wear and exudes a sense of class that isn’t going out of style any time soon.
