Elbow Patches & Tweed

Maybe it’s all the early grey I’ve been drinking but I can’t help but feel a bit British in my tweed shorts and knit turtleneck with elbow patches. I’ve always been fascinated with traditional English countryside/hunting attire; something about stuffy tweeds, plaids, Hunter boots and Barbour jackets just speak to me.

I love the history and tradition behind the garments and how they have transitioned from somewhat snobby, upper class garb to trendy, available fashion forward pieces. As spring creep closer I’ll be keeping an eye out for countryside inspired pieces to keep the chill away and the poshness close.
