Fashions come and go, whether its huge platform shoes, skirts worn over the top of trousers or doubling down on denim. Indeed a couple of years is often all it takes to make what seemed like a good fashion choice feel very dated. You only need to flick back a few years in your facebook photos to see that. However some things never go out of fashion, Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress for example, would look as stylish now as it did in the 1960’s. The same can be said for tweed, or so says That British Tweed Company (TBTC), who are big advocates of pretty much anything tweed.
“It all started with a chair” says Rich, the founder of TBTC, “I was browsing a vintage shop one day when I was a student and I spotted a beautiful vintage Chesterfield chair, which had been reupholstered in Harris Tweed. I couldn’t afford the chair at the time, but it stuck with me and sparked a love affair with Tweed which led to me starting TBTC in 2015.
