Herringbone Layers

I just love tweed and herringbone is one of my favorite types. Wearing a herringbone hacking jacket or overcoat makes me feel as though I am a member of British nobility and as an Anglophile, that is what I am going for when I get dressed a solid forty percent of the time. Herringbone just reeks of the English countryside, don’t you think?

A brief tweed primer: “Herringbone is so named because it looks like fish bones. The direction of the slant alternates column by column to create ‘v’ shapes. The pattern is quite pleasing to the eye.”
