Need for Tweed

English designer Margaret Howell does tweed right.

Now that you’ve passed a crash course in tweed, it’s time to invest some of your hard-earned money into one of our favorite fabrics. This two-button, welt pocket Harris tweed jacket from Margaret Howell gets all the details right while tweaking some traditional designs (slimmer notch lapel, darker charcoal finish) to differentiate yourself from the scratchy masses. Howell’s work is only available in a few doors worldwide and even less stateside. Your best bet is Los Angeles retailer South Willard’s online shop, where the hurt on your wallet won’t be exacerbated by fluctuating exchange rates. With the designer scoring a recent cover with MANual-endorsed Inventory magazine, don’t expect Howell to fly underground in North America for long.
