What to wear with tweed jacket?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've just bought an olive green tweed jacket and wanted ideas on what to wear with it. Not too formal but for nights down the pub etc. I was thinking a checked shirt and plain wool tie? Any help much appreciated, including photo ideas!

Taupe or tan Cavaly Twill trousers go with most tweed jackets.
I prefer a heavy twill because it'll hang well.
you can't go wrong with Cordings or the equivalent:

Cords or moleskin trousers. It's all about texture. Avoid worsted at all cost.

It depends on colour and texture of the tweed. If it's brownish I'd go with white/cream chinos of the like, brown/tan brogues and a shirt with light blue in it, might be large line checks or solid colour. I wouldn't wear a tie if it's a jacket only, maybe a suit, but I would go with a losely folded pocket square.

GrassSnake, depends on the weight of the fabric. Heavyweights go better with heavy, casual trousers, lightweights with dressier ones.
